    Happy Sunday Foxboro Families,

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

    Impact Aid Cards - DUE DATE HAS BEEN EXTENDED  

    We have paper impact aid cards for the remainder of our families that need to complete one. The paper impact aid card needs to be turned into our front office. Please complete the impact aid card in ink and make sure that all four areas are completed, including the checkboxes.  Please complete your card immediately! 

    We are so close to our goal of 100%! If our school completes 100% of our impact aid cards before Winter Break, each student will receive a gift card for a free 5 ounce yogurt at Cultive on Davis Street in Vacaville.

    Foxes Give Back - Play Doh Drive for Shriners Hospital
     


    Foxboro Faces 
    Each week we will be featuring one of the amazing grade levels or teams at Foxboro. This week we are highlighting two members of our social-emotional support team - Ms. Shannon Carter, School Psychologist and Ms. Monica Padilla, School Social Worker.



    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!

    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.

    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.
     
    Masks
    It is our commitment to keep everyone safe while also keeping our school open. When coming to the Foxboro campus, everyone is required to wear a mask. All students are required to wear a mask over their mouth and nose while at school (unless in designated recess areas, PE, or eating lunch or snack outside). Gators, bandanas, or other kinds of face coverings including, but not limited to, mesh, lace, or crochet, are not acceptable.

    Important Dates/Events

     
    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 thankful 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
