COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update - March 16

Dear NACP Families,

Like you, we are all concerned about the spread of the novel coronavirus and the uncertainty it’s creating in our daily lives. We have been following the guidance of public health experts, the direction of LAUSD and that of the NEW Academy Board of Directors on how to keep all who are part of our school community safe. The appropriate path to take as we try to slow down the spread of virus is to close the school.

Effective Monday, March 16, NACP will be closed for two (2) weeks. We plan to reopen Monday, March 30, but that decision will depend on the circumstances at the time. School administration will be sharing additional updates and information as we receive it from the state, county and school district. Please check our website and social media for updates.

NACP teachers will provide home study plans or homework packets for each of our students. Please have only one member of your family stop by the school Tuesday, March 17 between 8:00am and 2:00pm. to pick up these packets.

Sincerely,

-Dr. Clara M. Guerrero
Principal


Estimadas Familias de NACP,

Al igual que ustedes, a todos nos preocupa la propagación del nuevo coronavirus y la incertidumbre que está creando en nuestra vida cotidiana. Hemos estado siguiendo la guía de expertos en salud pública, la dirección del distrito de LAUSD y la de la Junta Directiva de NEW Academy sobre cómo mantener seguros a todos los que forman parte de nuestra comunidad escolar. El camino apropiado a seguir mientras intentamos frenar la propagación del virus es cerrar la escuela.

A partir del lunes 16 de marzo, NACP estará cerrada por dos (2) semanas. Planeamos reabrir el lunes 30 de marzo, pero esa decisión dependerá de las circunstancias en ese momento. Los mantendremos al tanto de esos planes a más tardar el viernes 27 de marzo. Les administración de la escuela compartirá información actualizada a medida que la recibamos del estado, condado y el distrito. Por favor visite nuestra página de web y nuestros sitios en las redes sociales.

Los maestros de la escuela NACP proporcionarán planes de estudio o paquetes de tarea para hacer en casa a cada uno de nuestros estudiantes. Les pedimos que un solo miembro de familia pase por la escuela el martes 17 de marzo entre las 8:00a.m. y las 2:00p.m. a recoger el paquete.

Sinceramente,

-Dra. Clara M. Guerrero
Directora de NACP

COVID-19 Update - April 15

Dear NACP Families,

Although this year’s Spring Break was unlike any other, we hope you relished the opportunity to spend time with family at home and found ways to connect with those from a distance. As you may know, the fight against COVID-19 is ongoing and we all must do our part to help flatten the curve. Following the extended Stay at Home orders and the announcement of extended school closures NACP has made the difficult decision to keep our school building closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

Yesterday, our amazing teachers welcomed students back from Spring Break during their daily Zoom Classroom Meetings. Teachers also posted new assignments in Google Classroom for students to complete. We love seeing all the work that is being turned in by our students.

NACP Teachers, Instructional Assistants and Administrators are working arduously on our Distance Learning Plan of Instruction. This plan includes: the distribution of 190 devices to be used at home, Daily Teacher-Led Lessons via Zoom Meetings, Daily Must-Do Assignments in Google Classroom, and soon we will also have a list of extra or may-do enrichment activities which will be posted on our school website under the Distance Learning Tab. In addition to that, teachers have daily Office Hours for students who may need extra support on an assignment, guided reading groups, or to answer any parent questions. Our Instructional Assistants will be supporting students and teachers in the delivery of small group and/or guided instruction. Our Reading Intervention Specialist will be offering additional support to English Learners. Please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher for schedules and additional information.

As a way to continue showing our unity and Dolphin Pride, we invite Students and Family members to participate in NACP Spirit Days which will take place every Friday. The First Virtual Spirit Day will be this Friday, April 17th. Please post a picture with the hashtag #NACPDolphins and if you use Instagram tag us @newacademycanogapark. We look forward to seeing your posts!

Thank you for your continued support. We are one Team!

Sincerely,

-Dr. Clara M. Guerrero

Estimadas estudiantes y Familias de NACP,

Aunque las vacaciones de primavera de este año fueron diferentes a cualquier otra, esperamos que haya disfrutado la oportunidad de pasar tiempo con la familia en casa y haya encontrado formas de conectarse con las personas a distancia. Como sabrán, la lucha contra COVID-19 está en curso y todos debemos hacer nuestra parte para ayudar a aplanar la curva. Después de los pedidos extendidos de Stay at Home y el anuncio de cierres escolares extendidos, NACP ha tomado la difícil decisión de mantener cerrado nuestro edificio escolar durante el resto del año escolar 2019-2020.

Ayer, nuestros increíbles maestros dieron la bienvenida a los estudiantes de las vacaciones de primavera durante sus reuniones diarias de Zoom en el aula. Los maestros también publicaron nuevas tareas en Google Classroom para que los estudiantes las completen. Nos encanta ver todo el trabajo que nuestros estudiantes están entregando.

Los maestros, asistentes de instrucción y administradores de NACP están trabajando arduamente en nuestro Plan de enseñanza a distancia. Este plan incluye: la distribución de 190 dispositivos para ser utilizados en el hogar, lecciones diarias dirigidas por maestros a través de reuniones de Zoom, tareas diarias obligatorias en el aula de Google, y pronto también tendremos una lista de actividades adicionales o enriquecedoras que pueden enriquecer se publicará en el sitio web de nuestra escuela bajo Aprendizaje a distancia. Además de eso, los maestros tienen un horario de oficina diario para los estudiantes que pueden necesitar apoyo adicional en una tarea, grupos de lectura guiada o para responder cualquier pregunta de los padres. Nuestros asistentes de instrucción apoyarán a estudiantes y maestros en la entrega de instrucción guiada o en grupos pequeños. Nuestro especialista en intervención de lectura ofrecerá apoyo adicional a los estudiantes de inglés. Comuníquese con el maestro de su hijo para obtener horarios e información adicional.

Como una forma de continuar mostrando nuestra unión y orgullo de ser delfines, invitamos a los estudiantes y miembros de la familia a participar en los días de espíritu de NACP que se llevarán a cabo todos los viernes. El primer día del espíritu virtual será este viernes, 17 de abril. Por favor, publique una foto con el hashtag #NACPDolphins y si usa Instagram, escríbanos a @newacademycanogapark. ¡Esperamos ver sus publicaciones!

¡Gracias por su continuo apoyo. Somos un equipo!

Sinceramente,

-Dra. Clara M. Guerrero
Directora de NACP

Grab & Go Food - March 18


Informational

Impact to School Calendar

Will the school year be extended or summer be shortened?

We will continue to work with all appropriate entities to answer this question. We will answer this as soon as we know.

Will this closure be extended until the end of the school year?

As you may know, we originally announced that we would be closed through March 27, 2019. Given the announcement by LAUSD Superintendent Beutner, our school’s will now remain closed up to May 1, 2020. We will keep you informed of any additional changes to this schedule as information becomes available.

What are the plans for Spring Break?

We will still observe Spring Break, as scheduled, from April 3rd to April 13th, during which time there will be no Distance Learning offered.



Hygiene to Combat COVID-19/Flu

What can I do to keep myself and my child healthy?

General Reminders for staying healthy during the cold and flu season: To help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including the Coronavirus and Flu, follow these important tips:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when you are sick. As always, students, staff and campus visitors must stay home when ill with a cough or other flu-like symptoms (chills, fever, muscle aches, sore throat)
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional

How do we help prevent the spread of the virus?

It is recommended that when washing hands, wash them thoroughly for 20 seconds with soap and water. If soap and water are not readily available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. It is also recommended to cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue away in the trash. Clean frequently used objects and surfaces daily. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.

In addition, laminated posters with hand washing instructions and “cover your cough” are posted in classrooms throughout campus.

What are you doing about hand washing in school?

In an effort to continue to prevent the transmission of germs, our teachers have reinforced healthy hand-washing through lessons taught during morning meeting and advisory. Some hand-washing reminders you can share with your students are:

  • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap
  • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice
  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them
