April is Autism Awareness month. Redwood Middle School Supports Autism by wearing Blue


What is Autism?

Autism  is a developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them. It is a spectrum condition. This means that, while all people with autism share certain difficulties, their condition will affect them in different ways.

Each spring, students in grades 3-8 and high school participate in the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). English language arts/literacy, mathematics, and science tests are included in CAASPP.

For CAASPP testing, students who have the most significant cognitive disabilities, as designated in their active individualized education program, are eligible to take the California Alternative Assessments (CAAs).

The testing window opens April 2 for NVUSD students. The actual testing period within that window varies at each school. 

This year, your child will take the following test(s), depending on his or her grade level:

  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in English language arts/literacy (grades 3-8 and grade 11)
  • Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment in mathematics (grades 3-8 and grade 11)
  • California is in the process of implementing the California Next Generation Science Standards. As part of that implementation, students in grades 5, 5, 8, and high school will try out a new test called the California Science Test, or CAST.

These tests measure what your child knows and is able to do. Results help identify gaps in knowledge or skills early on so your child can get the support he or she needs to be successful in school.

For more information about tests, results, preparation, and the Alternative Assessments, visit the NVUSD Student Testing webpage.

For information on specific dates and times when your child will take the test in each subject, please contact your child's teacher or the school office.

Spring Break is March 26-30.

Please don't miss school days before or after the break.

 

DOES ATTENDANCE MATTER, REALLY?
Short answer: Yes. Attendance matters. 
 

It matters to your STUDENT 
* Children who miss 20 or more days of school in kindergarten through third grade do poorly in school, and have future problems with truancy, delinquency and substance abuse, and are more likely to drop out of school.
* For low-income students in urban areas, each additional day absent from school in elementary grades is associated with a 7% lower probability of graduating from high school.
* Truancy is a 97% predictor of first-time drug use. The greater the number of truant days, the greater the use. 
This information is from the California Dept of Education.
 

It matters to your SCHOOL
At NVUSD, the average student is absent 7 days each school year. If we can reduce that to an average of 5 days, it would save the District $1.5 million in lost funding from the state. That amount represents nearly half of NVUSD's budget reductions for 2018-2019. Please plan family vacations to correspond to school breaks. 
Thank you!

Winter Break is Dec. 18 - Jan. 5. School resumes Jan. 8, 2018.

 

Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holiday break as families squeeze in a few more vacation days.

 

It’s time to break that cycle. We know that just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school.

 

Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning, right up until each break starts and the first day back. You can help us convey that message. This holiday season, give your children the gift of an education and the habit of attendance.

Four updates:

  • Food service this week
  • The planned non-student day on Friday, Oct. 27
  • Elementary parent conferences
  • Wednesday’s Safety and Security Parent meeting

We want to clarify that school breakfast and lunch are not free to all students this week. We realize that many families have had a change in housing or income status due to the fires, and we will provide breakfast and lunch to those students while we work to get the proper paperwork completed.

 

Secondly, as planned, there will be no school for students on Friday, Oct. 27. We are working with our teachers on options for recovering student learning lost during the fire emergency. We will share those plans as soon as they are available.

 

Next, if your student is in elementary school, you will hear directly from the school about rescheduling your parent conference. The intent is to complete conferences before Thanksgiving break.

 

Finally, we will reschedule the Safety and Security Parent meeting that was scheduled for this Wednesday, Oct. 25, at the District Auditorium. Please watch for the new date.

 

Thank you, and welcome back to school!

Here's why:

  • We committed to making attendance decisions based on air quality, and the forecast for the week continues to include periods in the red (unhealthy) and purple (very unhealthy) zones.
  • There is just too much variability in air quality to be confident for an entire school day.

We are committed to getting students back in school as quickly as possible, but only when the air quality situation is more reliably orange (unhealthy for sensitive groups) or better. 

 

NVUSD staff will get additional information through their usual communication channels.

 

For students with asthma

If your student has asthma but does not have an inhaler at school and you want to send one,  please download the NVUSD medication form and ask your health care provider (doctor) to complete and sign it. Return it to your school office with your student's inhaler.

Worldwide, nationally and locally, humans are being challenged by forces of nature: fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and more. Close to home, we know the anxiety and uncertainty people feel when their world is changed overnight, such as the earthquake of Aug. 24, 2014. So our empathy for those in Texas, Florida, Mexico and other places is real and heartfelt.

 

Many in our community are uncertain and anxious due to the announced changes in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.  

 

Our Board of Trustees, as well as the County Supervisors and municipal councils, resolved in April 2017: “We aspire to be a model for inclusion and equity for all populations, including immigrants, refugees, and other newcomers and are committed to supporting the ongoing inclusion and long-term economic and social integration of newcomers, and to demonstrate values of unity and acceptance.”

 

We will continue to follow the policies put in place nationally, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, until new policies or laws are enacted, and remain committed to our vision of preparing all of our community’s children for college and careers in the 21st century.

 

El NVUSD se compromete a servir a todos los estudiantes

 

A nivel mundial, nacional y local, los seres humanos están siendo desafiados por las fuerzas de la naturaleza: incendios, huracanes y otros elementos. Cerca de casa, somos conscientes de la ansiedad y la incertidumbre que la gente siente cuando su mundo cambia de la noche a la mañana, como pasó con el terremoto del 24 de agosto de 2014. Así que nuestra empatía por aquellas personas que viven en Texas, Florida, México y otros lugares es real y sentida.

 

Muchas personas de nuestra comunidad tienen incertidumbre y ansiedad debido a los cambios anunciados sobre la normativa Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés).  

 

Nuestra Mesa del Consejo Directivo, así como los Supervisores del Condado y consejos municipales, resolvieron en abril de 2017: “Aspiramos a ser un ejemplo de inclusión y equidad para todas las poblaciones, inclusive inmigrantes, personas refugiadas y otros recién llegados, y estamos comprometidos con el hecho de apoyar la inclusión económica y social continua y a largo plazo de los recién llegados, y con el hecho de demostrar los valores de la unidad y la aceptación.”

 

Continuaremos siguiendo las normativas que se implementen a nivel nacional, inclusive la Acción Diferida para Llegadas Infantiles, hasta que se promulguen nuevas normativas o leyes, y permanecemos comprometidos con nuestra visión de preparar a todos los niños y niñas de nuestra comunidad para la universidad y las profesiones del siglo 21.

Napa County Public Health is offering free seasonal flu vaccine shots to anyone over 3 years of age

 

The spray version of the vaccine is not available this year, but the flu shot is still the safest and most effective way to avoid getting the flu. In addition to protecting yourself from getting sick, the vaccine can prevent you from spreading the flu to your family and other people who are more likely to have severe illness.

 

See the attached schedule for dates and locations.

Our board, faculty and staff welcome you to many joyful learning experiences for your child.

 

The consistent vision of our Board of Trustees is 

 

"Transform Lives By Instilling 21st Century Skills and Inspire Lifelong Learning in Every Student."

 

Thank you for your commitment to work together so we all can best serve our students to achieve this vision.

 

Our students are making great progress, yet there is more work to be done. This year, the Board added a fourth goal to ensure that social-emotional learning and healthy living are integrated system-wide. We are fortunate to have amazing parents and generous community partners dedicated to developing well-rounded and empowered students.

 

Here are the academic goals adopted by the Board of Trustees for this school year.

 

Goals:

 

1. Students will graduate college and career ready.

2. Staff will provide equitable access and opportunities to close the achievement gap.

3. Students will master 21st century skills.

4. Develop educational programs that support healthy living.

 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, thank you for your commitment to transform and inspire our students.

 

Here's to a joyful and productive year!

 

Patrick

 

 

Patrick J. Sweeney Ed.D.

Superintendent
