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.

Audience:

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.

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.

Dear New Tech High Students and Families,

 

I must remind you that as a public high school, we take a neutral stance on all political issues.  However, it is important to remind ourselves why we do what we do: to challenge our students to believe no opportunity is out of their reach with the right determination and preparation.  We know that many of our students and families were affected or know someone that was affected by the decision to end DACA.  Now, we will not get into the specifics about potential directions legislation can go, but we will affirm the fact that every student at New Tech High deserves a safe and purposeful space to grow as a learner and we strive to continue to be that place.

 

Whether one of our students is a DREAMER or going through a gender transition process or deciding what colleges to apply to or worrying about how to support teammates in a project, we are committed to the development of every New Tech High student.  When talking about the Road to Success we try to help each student pave, I always reference three things: eligibility, awareness, and preparedness.  We know that regardless of your family's background, beliefs, or opinions, we can all agree that we have a shared interest in making New Tech High the type of learning environment that every single student has the opportunity to chase their own path to success.

 

I just recently shared some surprising statistics with students from our most recent California Healthy Kids Survey:

  • 26% of students had been harassed or bullied in the last year

  • 20% of students were victims of cyberbulling in the last year

  • 20% of students were currently using alcohol or drugs

  • 25% of students were offered, sold, or given illegal drugs in the past year

  • 34% of students didn’t feel close to their classmates at New Tech High

  • 55% of students suffered serious anxiety

  • 21% of students seriously considered suicide at least once in the last year

 

I don’t want to paint a bleak picture (93% of students felt a strong sense of connectedness to New Tech High and 95% of students felt that NTHS was a safe place), but it is important to point out that caring for our students is a never ending job with no end goal.

 

We believe every student, whether currently affected by the decision to end DACA, dealing with personal substance issues, struggling with personal mental health, or a wide variety of other issues, deserves to be a part of a community that wraps them with love.  We know that your student might struggle with anxiety or depression.  We know that your student has a friend that struggles with anxiety or depression.  We know that your student might be dealing with personal substance issues.  We know that your student might know someone that brings drugs to campus everyday.  We know that your student might have a friend that is undocumented.  We know that we are not perfect, but we will continue to try and provide supports and structures for all students to have a safe place to grow as a person.  I encourage you to talk to your child about their personal struggles or struggles a friend might be having.  It truly does take a village and we also know that not every student buys into the culture we have created.  If your student has a personal struggle or know someone that does or is mistreating our school culture, I encourage you to have them reach out to a teacher, Mrs. Martinez, Ms. Miller, or myself.  We have the tools to try to provide the scaffolds necessary to

 

We are committed to every single student that has walked through our doors, that is currently here, and will be here in the years to come.  Recent studies have showed that developing psychological safety (meaning people feel safe to take risks and be vulnerable) is key to building a culture of togetherness and care.  Being human-centered is at the core of our values and what makes the New Tech High culture unlike any other.  Trust, respect, and responsibility are more than just words if viewed correctly.  We must protect that culture, live that culture, and transform that culture.  We will always continue to strive to create project experiences that are relevant, engaging, and real world for students. Thank you for all you do for your student, the fellow students of New Tech High, and our New Tech High family.

May/June topic:

 

In light of recent local and national events, we want to share what’s happening at NVUSD and in our schools, in terms of preventing, reporting and responding to bullying or hazing. Along with our entire community, we deeply value our children, and take their safety and well-being very seriously. For too many of our young people, bullying and/or hazing have been part of their lives, whether at school, at home or somewhere else.
