Good Afternoon and Happy Saturday Cabrillo Families,

Distance Learning
Like many of you, I was saddened by the news Thursday before break that we would not be returning to school. The Cabrillo office team started working on reopening shortly after the opening of Learning Hubs preparing the packets of consent forms, protocols, emergency contact information. Our Custodian has set up the classrooms, installed air purifiers, and marked out the socially distanced lines students would use when they arrived on campus. Mrs. Diaz-Centeno and her husband prepared drone footage we were planning to use in a welcome back video. The Cabrillo teachers and I met on three occasions to map out the protocols and prepare for a safe and successful reopening. Every grade level had a teacher ready to teach students returning to the school site. In the case of Kindergarten and 2nd grade, we had both teachers ready and excited to return to school to work in person with your students. Cabrillo was ready. I was sure that we would have kids on campus following Spring Break. The district has been in negotiations with the leadership of the teachers union since October. Please review the last best offer made by the district and the union’s reply. Draw your own conclusions. Bargaining Update from March 30, 2021. Your Cabrillo teachers will continue providing a high quality distance learning experience for your students. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
