Parents and Students:


We've got another curve ball: Casa Grande and PHS announced a change in the bell schedule.


Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri 8:30-3:20

Wed 8:30-2:50


We were able to move most of the high school students to later hours. If the elementary and/or junior high schools change their bell schedules, we will adjust as we can.


Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this upheaval. Scheduling is always a juggling act, but this last minute scramble has been especially stressful. Thank you for working with us to find solutions.


Thanks,

Christie

Parents and Students:


Well, it wouldn't be the start of school without a curve ball: I just found out that PG&E will be shutting off power on Tuesday, August 16th to repair equipment on our block.


We will close for the whole day, but I will be available by email for any questions or problems.


Please note: without power, our office phone line will not be available.


I don't anticipate teachers giving much-- if any-- homework on the first day. If, however, you want to do a Zoom session with your tutor, please let us know and we will set it up.


I deleted the sessions from the calendar and will adjust the invoices accordingly. If you have already set in your payment, you can reschedule the session or use it as a credit.


Let me know if you have any questions. I am so sorry for the inconvenience. My hope is that this closure now means that things will be smooth sailing later.


We will see you soon!


Christie

Parents and Students:


The cooler weather caught us by surprise, but it has been a welcome change nevertheless. I hope you have been relaxing and soaking up a couple of lazy hours. We need to build our strength. Brace for it: school starts in two weeks. Yikes!


Thank you to everyone who has already signed up for the fall session. Each year has its own idiosyncrasies, and this year is no different. We are still working to place a few students, and some are waiting to see about off periods. The schedule is live, but it will change as we add students. Please contact us to set up a recurring schedule for you.


We switch over to the fall schedule Monday, August 15th.


1. Please take a moment to update your information in Teachworks. Have you changed your address, phone number, or school? Make sure to update your ICE (in case of emergency) contact with the best number to reach that person. We appreciate your help.


2. Our parking lot gets extremely busy. Please be mindful of young children coming in and out of the office as well as patients from the chiropractic office next door. We are staggering start times to help the flow of cars through the lot. We ask students who drive themselves to the office to park on Kent St or around the corner on Lakeville. If your student rides a bike to the center, park it on the side of the building close to Christie's office. Thank you everyone for being safe and considerate.


3. If you are taking an online class with Apex, Silicon Valley HS, or BYU, please check that you will complete the class before school starts. If you need an exam proctored, let us know as soon as you can.


Every new school year is an opportunity for growth. I hope this year will be a time of healing, strength, and resilience. I believe in you.


Christie
