Dear Muraoka Families,
THANK YOU TO ALL PARENTS WHO PROVIDED INPUT ON THE PRINCIPAL SELECTION FOR MURAOKA! The District sent a letter to all Muraoka families announcing that Mrs. Gina Mazeau is the new principal of Muraoka! Mrs. Mazeau will begin at Muraoka on Monday, November 1. This week will be Mrs. Parker’s last week at Muraoka. Our wonderful AP, Mrs. Rayray will support Muraoka during the principal transition.
MURAOKA STAFF WILL CONTINUE TO CALL PARENTS THIS MONTH regarding the LCFF Survey. PLEASE complete and submit the short, simple LCFF Survey, which will ensure that Muraoka receives the maximum amount of funding for our students. Muraoka’s funding will be severely restricted unless surveys are returned. PLEASE USE THE LINK BELOW TO ACCESS THE SURVEY THAT TAKES LESS THAN TWO MINUTES TO COMPLETE.
Benefits for your child(ren) include:
- Instructional materials
- Classroom technology
- Additional staffing to provide support for students
- Extended learning opportunities for students
- Before and after school programs
We kindly ask that you DO NOT BRING LUNCHES, WATER BOTTLES, OR OTHER ITEMS TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE during the school day. We do not have staff to deliver these items and teaching and learning should not be interrupted. Our office staff must remain in the office, and classrooms should not be disturbed. All students are eligible to receive free lunch at school. Teachers and the office have paper cups for students who forget their water bottles. We also have “emergency” bottled water available outside. Although it may seem that delivering one lunch is not too much to ask, our office can receive up to 30 lunches and other items a day. Beginning this week, no items will be delivered to classrooms, and the office staff will not call classrooms for this purpose.
MURAOKA HAD FOUR NEW COVID CASES REPORTED LAST WEEK. To date, Muraoka has had a total of 35 COVID cases. This is just under just 3.5% of our student population. We remain grateful that to our knowledge, none of our students have been seriously ill. We continue to work diligently to ensure mask-wearing, monitor possible COVID symptoms, and notify and follow up with COVID cases and close contacts. Thank you for your continued support with keeping your children at home if they have any COVID symptoms and letting the office know the reason for your children’s absences. Please continue to contact us with any COVID-related questions. Please email COVID test results to our Attendance/Health Clerk, email@example.com
PARKING LOT SOLAR PROJECT UPDATE As you can see, solar panels are currently being installed! The project is expected to be completed around November 1.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE PTO’s Scholastic Book Fair. Over $11,000 worth of books and related items were purchased at school on Monday through Thursday!
FAMILY BOOK FAIR NIGHT on Friday was a huge success! The Book Fair was held outside, and bookshelves and tables were spread out to support social distancing. All participants wore masks, and the number of shoppers was limited and monitored.
CVESD Intramural Sports: With some extra precautions in place, we are excited to announce that CVESD has decided that student intramural sports will resume this year! All sports teams are held after school and are an optional activity for CVESD students.
Coach/Volunteer Requirements: Livescan, TB Clearance, CPR/First-Aid Certification, Proof of COVID vaccination. If you are interested in coaching a fall sport (co-ed flag football or co-ed kickball), please email Mrs. Rayray as soon as possible. Felicitas.firstname.lastname@example.org
