Weekly Letter to the Community, Week 23 of Distance Learning
Posted 1/30/21

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Cabrillo Families,
Parent Portal
We have finally reached the end of January and are now opening up to a new month which means a new opportunity to access student information via Infinite Campus. Last Wednesday you received your email introducing Infinite Campus’s Parent Portal. Soon you will receive an email with a personalized 32-digit Activation key. Look for that email. The Cabrillo office is ready to help you via email or phone. Families will continue using the Parent Portal in Illuminate to access elementary report cards.
Morning Announcements
Mr. C. and Mrs. Bhatt are coordinating the Student Council this year. In an effort to create a virtual environment that closely mirrors our regular day at school, Mr. C has put together Morning Announcements that all classrooms watch on Monday. Mr. C and his Student Council Leaders record the morning announcement on a Flipgrid which the teachers play during their Monday morning Zoom meeting. To see this week’s Monday Morning Announcement, look at the video below my Sunday Chat. The new announcement is posted every Monday.

Anxiety Management Presentation
Cabrillo school psychologist Christine Quecan is collaborating with the counselor at Vallejo Mill to provide an Anxiety Management presentation for families. The presentation will be held on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. The Zoom link to the workshop is included on the flyer linked here and attached to the Bright Arrow message you received today. Let’s hear from Ms. Quecan.
