Superintendent's Message

August 2022

Dear Moreland Community,

 

I hope you’ve had a restful and joyous summer with your loved ones. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and District Administrators, it is my honor to welcome you back to the 2022- 2023 school year. We are so excited to see students back on our first day of school, Wednesday, August 17, 2022.

 

The beginning of each school year is always a time for reflection, preparation, and new beginnings. We will continue to focus on an exemplary education while providing social-emotional tools and enrichment opportunities that will support and encourage our Moreland students along their educational journey. 

 

With transmission rates on the rise in Santa Clara County, we understand that COVID-19 may still be on everyone’s minds as we begin the school year. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. We have revised our COVID-19 Safety Mitigation Plan to ensure that our practices and procedures follow the most up-to-date guidelines from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), with another expected change in guidelines this Friday, August 12, 2022. We will email the  most current Moreland COVID-19 Safety Mitigation Plan out to families on Monday, August 15, 2022. Read below for some additional COVID-19 mitigation strategies we are employing to ensure a safe and positive school experience. (**Update - See COVID Safety Mitigation Plan here)

 

FREE At-Home Test Kits Pick-Up - Thursday, August 11 and Friday, August 12, 2022

On Thursday and Friday of this week, we will be passing out free COVID-19 at-home test kits to our Moreland families in preparation for the first day of school next Wednesday. Interested families should come to the District Office parking lot Thursday, August 11th or Friday, August 12th both from 3-5pm for a drive-thru distribution. If students are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms before coming to school, we ask parents and guardians to keep students home and test for COVID. The district office is located at 4711 Campbell Avenue, San Jose.

 

Stanford Children’s Health Webinar: The Status of COVID-19 & Its Effect on Our Schools

On August 16th from 6:00pm - 7:00pm, we are once again partnering with Stanford Children’s Health to bring a webinar on the current status of COVID-19 and our schools. This event will be held virtually. You can ask questions ahead of time by sharing them here. This webinar will be recorded and posted to our website for future viewing. Here is the link to join us next Tuesday evening.

 

FREE Chromebooks for Any Moreland Student

At last night’s Board Meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the surplus of over 2,300 Chromebooks that the district would like to give to our families at no charge. These are additional Chromebooks that are no longer needed in the classrooms. Chromebooks will be distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis. We will have two different opportunities for families to pick up a free Chromebook. Learn more here.

Care Solace

In an effort to continuously support our commitment to the well-being of our students, staff, and parents, Moreland is incredibly proud to bring Care Solace to our Moreland community. Care Solace is an online resource with a live, multilingual Care Concierge meant to assist individuals in finding local mental health-related programs and counseling services. You can learn more here. Additional information will be provided throughout the school year.

As you return to the school year, we encourage you to follow us on social media for upcoming events, sightings from around the district, and more. And don’t forget to share your school pictures with us by using the #MorelandMoments and #CelebrateMoreland so we can share your posts!

 

With optimism and excitement, it is my honor and privilege to serve as your superintendent and work alongside such a passionate and dedicated community. I wish you an incredible 2022-2023 school year!
