    Week of 5/16/2022

    Happy Sunday Foxboro Families, 

     

    Here’s what you need to know for the week ahead! 

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month 

    You may already know that more than half of all Americans will experience a mental illness or disorder in their lifetime. And just about all of us have times when we feel stressed out, anxious, or down. When that happens to you or a loved one, do you know what to do?

    Recognizing that you or someone you know could use some support for your mental health is the first step. That means checking in with yourself regularly, and checking in with others to see if they may need help. Then you can take action to get support if it’s needed.

    Join us and people across California in taking the Take Action for Mental Health Pledge. This is a way to commit to ourselves and the people around us that mental health is a priority and that we will do what we can to support each other.

    The Take Action for Mental Health Pledge says:

    I Pledge to Take Action for Mental Health

    • I will Check In with myself to identify mental health needs.
    • I will Learn More about mental health.
    • I will Get Support for my own mental health and support the mental health of others. 
    • I will share this pledge with others to help them take action too!

    You can download the pledge and find more resources to help you Check In, Learn More, and Get Support on the Take Action for Mental Health website.

    You can also watch and share this powerful video created by students as part of the Directing Change program to learn how they pledge to Take Action for Mental Health.

    We stand ready to take action. Let’s Check In, Learn More, and Get Support for our individual and collective mental health in our local communities.

    Follow @SolanoCountyBH and visit https://takeaction4mh.com/ for more information about mental health awareness and reducing stigma.

    Mental Health Awareness Month Activities Continue

    Please see the TUSD website for the most up to date information. https://www.travisusd.org/Page/4277  

    Parents are encouraged to enroll as soon as possible to better ensure placement for your child at your neighborhood school.

    Daily Health Checks

    Daily health checks are a critical component of keeping our students safe and school open. Thank you for making these health checks part of your family’s morning routine each day. We are depending on you to screen your children for symptoms of COVID-19 every day before sending them to school.  Our staff will also do wellness self-checks before coming in each day. People with these symptoms may possibly have COVID-19, and must stay home.  If symptoms start while your child is at school, we will call you to pick your child up right away.

    Possible symptoms include:  

    • Fever or chills  
    • Cough  
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing  
    • Fatigue  
    • Muscle or body aches  
    • Headache  
    • New loss of taste or smell  
    • Sore throat  
    • Congestion or runny nose  
    • Nausea or vomiting  
    • Diarrhea  

    We are depending on our whole school community to work together to keep the virus out of our schools.  A morning health check is a critical piece of that effort.  

    Please contact our school office if your child has been in contact with a COVID positive person or has tested positive for COVID.  If your student has any known allergies, such as seasonal allergies, or other health concerns such as asthma, please update this information in your parent portal or contact our Mrs. Staci Cope, our Health Specialist in the Front Office. 

    Dropping Off & Picking Up Students 

    Drop off and pick up continues to improve each week. As a reminder, please do not drop your students off before 8:10 a.m., unless they are eating breakfast. The Foxboro parking lot is closed to vehicle traffic from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The driveway will be coned off, accessible only to those with a handicap placard and school buses. Dropping off and picking up your students in a timely manner is important and we appreciate your efforts!

    Thank you for prioritizing the safety of our school family each day when you drop off and pick up your children. Please be mindful not to park in no parking zones, double or triple park along any of the streets surrounding Foxboro, or make illegal u-turns after dropping your student off.  Also, thank you for being good role models for each of our Foxes by using the crosswalks to cross streets when coming to and from the Foxboro campus. The Vacaville Police Department prioritizes the safety of our families and will regularly be patrolling and ticketing the area before and after school. 

    Volunteers/Visitors on Campus

    According to the State Public Health Officer, everyone working in K-12 schools must provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test weekly. If you plan on visiting or volunteering at Foxboro this year, please provide our school office with a copy of your vaccination card or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the day that you are visiting or volunteering. This order does not apply to families that are just picking up or dropping off their child(ren). This order does apply to anyone that is planning on visiting our campus or attending an in-person meeting of any type (IEP meetings, SST meeting, 504 meetings, etc.). You will need to provide our school office with a copy of your vaccination card or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the day that you are visiting.

    We thank our families for their partnership in keeping all of our students and staff safe and our school open!

    Handle With Care 

    If your family is experiencing difficulties at home, we would like to provide additional support at school. We understand that you are not always able to share details and that’s okay. If your child is coming to school after a difficult night, morning, or weekend, please email their teacher “Handle with Care.” Nothing else will be said or asked. This will let us know that your child may need extra time, patience, or help during the day. Please also feel free to email this message to myself or Mr. Marcoux at - kandrews@travisusd.org or cmarcoux@travisusd.org

    We feel so grateful and blessed that each of you have chosen to be part of our Foxboro family, where every piece has a purpose! 

     

    With grateful hearts,

     

    Miss Andrews & Mr. Marcoux
