January 11, 2021 Message from Ms. Nader
Dear Cambridge Families,
Happy New Year in 2021 and welcome back to school. We were all so excited to return to school this week and hope you had a chance to take a break and rejuvenate over the winter break. Our meal distribution resumed and we will continue to provide meals each Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12:00-1:30. Please remember that meal distribution at Scandia school has been suspended for now. You can still pick up meals at any of the following schools: Cambridge, Foxboro, and Vanden.
Travis Unified Governing Board voted to continue Distance Learning until March 15 for elementary and March 29 for secondary. For the first two weeks, students will begin attending in-person classes 1 day a week, allowing staff to refine planned processes for campus operations. After two weeks, students will begin attending two days per week, with some students attending Monday and Tuesday, and others on Thursday and Friday. Administrators are working on developing these groups with the goal of keeping families together, and families will be notified of their students’ group closer to the time we reopen. Actual start dates will be dependent on Solano County being in Red for two weeks or more. To view the presentation provided to the Board, visit our website at www.travisusd.org
