Hello, Kingsley Families.

As you’ve been informed, Superintendent Beutner announced that all LAUSD schools will remain closed through May 1. Though we hoped to re-open our school doors much sooner than this, the safety and well-being of each student, parent and staff remains our top priority.

Our team is dedicated to staying connected even though we are apart. That is why every teacher will be using either ClassDojo or the Remind App to provide direct and ongoing communication to support parents with learning at home. In addition, we are supporting our teachers with expanding their instructional plans using on-line platforms such as Google Classroom, Clever and Zoom meetings to keep the focus on learning. Teachers are also participating in weekly on-line professional development to transition and adapt to the new norm of distance learning.

To ensure that all students have access to our distance learning lessons, the school has completed its survey of students who don’t have a computer at home. Now that the school has completed the task of sanitizing all our devices, our next step is to deploy devices to students that need them before the end of the week two. To comply with social distancing guidelines, we will have scheduled appointments for each grade to distribute the devices to students who need them.

We value the courage of all involved as we embrace this new way of teaching and learning and value your collaboration as we continue our educational mission.

Wishing you well,

Karina Salazar
