Weekly Letter to the Community, Week 19 of Distance Learning
Posted 1/3/21

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Cabrillo Families,
Welcome Back
I  relish the opportunity to write 2021 in the date section of documents I sign as a principal. Normally the annual date change that occurs in January is an exercise in accidentally writing the previous year in the date section, striking it out, then writing the correct year. More an annoyance than an occupational hazard. But as I prepare to return to the office tomorrow, I will relish recording 2021 in the date section. For now it is only a symbolic change and it will not forestall the anticipated 3rd wave of Coronavirus following the holidays. But it does put behind us a year that has tested our resolve in so many ways.  
As we prepare for the deployment of the two vaccines currently approved, I am reminded of the mass vaccination efforts in the 60’s when I was in elementary school that eventually eradicated measles and polio in America. I lined up dutifully as a child with my mom at Mission San Jose high school which was one of the mass vaccination centers ready for the cube of sugar containing a drop of Dr. Salk’s miraculous polio vaccine. I anticipate something similar will take place when it comes to vaccinating all of our students across the country though I am not certain. This I know. “Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering ‘it will be happier’... 

Fill Someone’s Bucket
TK Superstar Mrs. Corie Tay has a few words for you about how you can fill someone’s bucket today. This is an especially important message in these times. Take it away Mrs. Tay. 

Yearbook Cover 
Our Yearbook Cover Contest runs through the month of January. This is a great opportunity for your student to create the winning entry that will be the cover of our 2020-2021 yearbook. Please encourage your student to contribute!
