Weekly Letter to the Community, Week 28 of Distance Learning
Posted 3/7/21

Good Morning and Happy Sunday Cabrillo Families,
Yearbook Portraits Again
Our Yearbook Portrait form has collected 71 portraits submitted by families. Cabrillo has 386 students so we still have a lot more pictures to collect. The absolute easiest way to submit a portrait is directly from your phone. To preserve the security of our Yearbook Portrait Uploader, families must authenticate with the student’s FUSD Google username and password. I prepared a short video to show you how to change from your personal gmail account (if you have one) to your student’s account. I will be sending text messages via BrightArrow this week reminding families to submit their student’s portrait. Please call the Cabrillo office at (510) 792-3232 if you need support. Remember to follow the Yearbook Portrait Guidelines (3:36) prepared by Mrs. Diaz-Centeno.

Introducing Ms. Mikaela Silva
Cabrillo is very fortunate to have so many dedicated new teachers. This week I would like to introduce you to 5th grade teacher Ms. Silva. She has some great tips to share with you.

Ordering a Yearbook
Yearbooks can be purchased online by going to the Cabrillo website or clicking the following link Ordering a Yearbook. The yearbook can only be purchased online due to the pandemic. 

Yearbook Photo Uploader
We need more photos of 5th and 6th grade students. Click the Upload Yearbook Photos found under my weekly video. Use your student’s Google account for verification. Click the Add File uploader then select the image from your phone. 

Library Books
Our system of checking out library books to students ends this week with first grade on Monday. Our next anticipated distribution will start at the end of the month. Remember to return your student’s library book at the next materials pick up.
