In the Classroom…..

This past week the anatomy and physiology students at Millennium diagramed the structures of the eyeball. After learning the different parts of the eye, they were ready to see them in a real specimen. Our on-campus students conducted a cow eyeball dissection while using document cameras and break-out rooms to allow the distance learning classmates to see the actual structures in the eye of the cow which are very similar to our own eyeballs. The in-person dissectors needed to use their senses and communication skills to express to their classmates how the different parts felt and looked. It was an all-around fun learning experience for the anatomy and physiology students.

 

 

 

MHS Athletics is back!

It has been 46 weeks and 4 days (326 days) since any of our teams last participated in a CIF Athletic Contest. This afternoon that streak was officially broken as the CCAA & MVL Cross Country teams took to the course in Turlock for the 1st time. Rather than racing in the typical male/female groups, school cohorts were assigned start times in 5-minute intervals, with the Millennium squad taking to the line at about 3:40pm.

We had 18 runners representing the Falcons, some of which were wearing a Millennium uniform for the first time. 🖤💛
Granted, their season is very shortened and will only include 4-5 meets, the opportunity to compete has been greatly anticipated. Today was such a renewed energy for the student-athletes, Athletic Directors, and parents, and it’s good to be back!
For the boys, Carson Edwards finished in 3rd place. For the girls, Carrie Weiss placed 2nd, Riley Vatran 3rd, and Sydney Skaggs 4th. Their next meet is Thursday!

Returning to Campus Learning

Primary Charter has limited spots for students to return to campus for class beginning February 16, 2021.

Discovery Charter has limited spots for students to return to campus for classes beginning February 22, 2022.

Millennium High School will accept students that would like to return to campus for classes immediately.

Please email Michele Beringer at mberinger@tracylc.net to see if your student’s class has an opening and schedule a start date.


 

Note: This is a story from a high school opening its doors to in-person instruction. Please read the things students had to say.

Meanwhile, MHS is inviting high school students to return during the month of February. We miss the students and hope they will be returning soon. In-person classes have been open to students since November. We have an excellent record of safety with consistently implemented protocols to protect students and staff.

If your high school student wishes to return, contract Michele Beringer at 290-0511 or mberinger@tracylc.net

—————————

For some high school students, the return to school comes just in time to salvage a year

 

Since mid-March, she had been in her room alone, doing school from her laptop. Like most of her classmates, she usually kept her camera off, her sense of isolation deepening.

She slipped into a depression.

She’s a freshman and until today, she had not met a classmate or teacher in person.

A high-achiever who made straight A’s, her grades dropped last semester, causing her anxiety to skyrocket.

“I can’t do this for another semester,” she told her mother. “I want to try to live.”

The return to in-person learning is coming just in time for Amy, whose identity the Journal is protecting.

On Monday, she and several hundred freshmen were back in the classroom, the next step in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools’ reopening plan. About 2,400 freshmen will return in cohorts, alternating between in-person and remote learning.

For Amy, that will mean going to school two times a week, and though she craves more interaction, it will allow her to connect with teachers and classmates, walk the halls of her school and try to salvage what’s left of this milestone year in a young person’s school career.

Originally scheduled to return on Jan. 25, high schoolers are the last group of students learning remotely. Acting on the advice of local health officials, Interim Superintendent Tricia McManus recommended the return date be pushed to Feb. 22 to give the district time to review all the ways it is trying to keep students and staff safe and limit the spread of COVID-19. Eager to get some high schoolers back to in-person learning, the school board compromised, voting to have freshmen return on Feb. 1 and grades 10-12 on Feb. 22. High schoolers also have the option of continuing with online learning.

Visiting Reagan High School Monday, McManus said having a staggered return for high school students was a good idea because it acquaints them with their new school.

“They haven’t been here before,” she said while touring the high school with its principal, Brad Royal.

A research team out of Duke, the ABC Science Collaborative, is reviewing the district’s data and making sure the safety protocols are in place for three more grades of high school students, a cohort of students that McManus said presents a bigger set of issues than elementary and middle school children. High school students will move around their schools more and because many have drivers licenses and jobs, they interact with more people. In response, McManus told the school board last month that the district will beef up its contact tracing program.

Reagan’s freshmen class is divided into four cohorts that will alternate in-person and remote learning. Monday’s cohort at Reagan was expected to be 125 students.

The return of local high schoolers comes at a time when passions are running high across the country, with both sides pointing to compelling stories and reports that affirm their positions.

Mental health experts warn of a looming crisis among young people, evident in Las Vegas, Nev., where a rash of suicides prompted the school board there to reopen the schools as quickly as possible, according to a story in the New York Times.

For Amy, the isolation was crushing. Many of her friends from middle school are not attending her high school, leaving her with no friends. Online school work was grueling.

She was looking forward to Monday with some trepidation.

“I know we can’t do anything together, but I hope seeing a person makes a difference,” she said.

Much like the decision-makers in the school district, high-school students have varying opinions on whether to return to school.

At Reagan on Monday, Daniel Reyes and Leila Ramirez were the only two students in Marilyn Mercer’s English class.

Leila said she decided to go back to class because she has trouble staying on task in remote learning and for her mental health.

“I’m very, very talkative,” she said. “In May, I had this huge feeling of depression and isolation.”

“I’ve heard my sister talk about it and I wanted to experience it,” he said. “It’s helpful to have Ms. Mercer here to ask questions.”

In a few weeks, Olivia Kuhner expects to return to Reynolds High School for her junior year. She is ready to interact with teachers face-to-face. She found asynchronous learning — which is not live — to be a challenge that can leave students unmotivated.

“Mainly, it’s about hands-on learning,” she said of her decision to return to school. “That’s a big part of Reynolds as a school.”

Meanwhile, Laura Doughton has made the decision to finish her senior year online. The high number of COVID-19 cases over the holidays convinced her to stay home.

She beats isolation by spending time with her twin brother during the school day and playing online card games with friends.

New CDC Research Backs Biden Push for In-Person Schooling

By Sarah D. Sparks & Mark Lieberman — January 26, 2021  8 min read

A staff member holds the door open for kids on the first day of school at Goodwin Frazier Elementary School in New Braunfels, Texas on Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2020.

Research released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is adding fuel to the Biden administration’s push for school districts to return to in-person instruction, even amid the latest wave of the pandemic.

However, at least one of the new studies warns against governors’ moves to restart high school indoor sports in several states.

A handful of new studies, including one released Tuesday in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, add to evidence that students and teachers may be able to safely return to in-person instruction, even in communities with widespread coronavirus infection, if the schools use key health and safety practices such as mask-wearing, social distancing, sanitation, and keeping students in small groups or “cohorts” to limit interaction.

“As many schools have reopened for in-person instruction in some parts of the [United States] as well as internationally, school-related cases of COVID-19 have been reported, but there has been little evidence that schools have contributed meaningfully to increased community transmission,” wrote CDC researchers led by Margaret Honein in an accompanying viewpoint essay in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

“The preponderance of available evidence from the fall school semester has been reassuring insofar as the type of rapid spread that was frequently observed in congregate living facilities or high-density worksites has not been reported in education settings in schools.”

Schools used clear health protections

NOTE

The Tracy Learning Center Schools have been open for in-person since October and early November. We have approximately 45% of our students back on campus. We follow safety guidelines and are proving to be a safe place. In all these months, we have had four positive COVID cases which resulted in closing a room or a school for the quarantine time. None of the cases traced back to exposure at school.

Happy Monday!  We will be passing along more info as we get closer but we have our PCS picture day scheduled for Wednesday, February 24th.

MHS Athletics Video Update

Attention TK Parents – TK will be closed until Monday Feb 1st

tlc-logo
January 22, 2021
Dear TK Parents,
As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 crisis, the safety and well-being of our children, families, and staff remain our highest priority.
For that reason, we wanted to share with you that an individual in our school community tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently under a doctor’s care. This individual was last on campus on Thursday , January 21st, 2021. We wish this individual a speedy recovery.
We have consulted with San Joaquin County Public Health Services and out of an abundance of caution, we will be closing TLC Transitional Kindergarten, TK ONLY at our Preschool Site so that these students and staff can self-quarantine to monitor for symptoms. Any TK siblings can continue to attend campus classes. During this time, we will conduct a deep cleaning by our custodial service. We anticipate these TK Students and their staff will return on Monday, February 1st, 2021. If your child is presenting symptoms, we would encourage you to contact your physician and if your child is tested please make us aware so we can make the most informed decisions for our school. Mrs.Parker will provide homework for the students during this time.

We have been taking and will continue to take the following precautions:

  • Staff members wear facial coverings while caring for children
  • Temperatures are taken of all students and staff and any elevated temp over 100.4 prevents this individual from entering school grounds
  • Students/Staff with COVID symptoms are sent home immediately
  • Continuous Cleaning and disinfecting all areas along with lunch tables thoroughly disinfected between lunch groups
  • Seating areas are socially distanced
  • Focus on handwashing and disinfecting throughout the day
  • Bathrooms are continuously monitored with only two students allowed in at a time
  • Repeated disinfecting/cleaning on “high touch” areas throughout the day (including desks, doors, public spaces, and bathroom fixtures)

Thank you for your understanding and partnership as we navigate these uncharted waters and support one another through these uncertain times. We profoundly regret any anxiety this causes you and your family. We will continue to monitor the situation and update you on any additional developments.
Sincerely,
Virginia Stewart
Executive Director

TLC Charter Chatter – DCS and MHS in-person students return Monday Jan 25th

 

tlc-logo

We have to thank our staff, parents, and students for working together to stay safe.  Moving online can be a difficult adjustment but we take safety very seriously.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.  See you Monday!


This information comes from the California Governor’s safety website portal:

With the Right Precautions, We Can Minimize Transmissions in Schools—Especially in Elementary Grades

Research across the globe shows that children get COVID-19 less often than adults, and when they do get sick, they get less sick than adults. Population-wide studies in Italy and Spain using antibody tests, which indicate whether a person has been infected at any point previously, find that children have lower rates of infection compared to adults.

In studies of open schools in America and around the world, children do not seem to be major sources of transmission—either to each other or to adults. In fact, the greatest risk in school settings comes from adults transmitting it to other adults, often in settings like breakrooms where we sometimes let down our guard. One study in Australia of 10 early childhood centers and 15 schools (>6000 people) found low rates in the schools overall (1.2%), and an adult-to-adult transmission rate almost 15 times higher than child-to-child transmission.

The growing body of evidence is particularly strong for lower risks associated with elementary schools. For example, a study analyzing elementary schools in a heavily impacted region of France found that the risks of transmission inside schools were approximately the same as outside schools. The lower risks associated with younger grades is likely due to, among other reasons, the fact that younger people produce fewer ACE-2 receptors—COVID’s doorway into human cells.

Even in communities with many COVID cases, we do not see many outbreaks in schools. That’s because the right precautions can stop outbreaks before they start. Evidence shows that schools with the right mitigation strategies have been able to prevent in-school transmission among students and staff.

We know what works. We can stop the spread in schools by layering and carefully implementing mitigation strategies, including masks, cohorting, proper ventilation, washing hands, testing and symptom screening.

For more information, please refer to Evidence Summary: TK-6 Schools and COVID-19 Transmission (California Department of Public Health)

 

In-Person Instruction Is Critical for Learning and Growth—Especially in Elementary Grades

While California has made great strides in distance learning—and this option will remain for parents and students who choose it and for those whose health status does not allow them to return to school in the near term—remote learning is still very challenging for many students and their caregivers. In a recent survey by the Alliance for Children’s Rights, 42% of caregivers reported that they are not comfortable supporting youth in their care with technology needs, and 39% of caregivers reported that they are not comfortable providing academic support to the youth in their care during distance learning.

Older students are better equipped to manage technology and benefit from distance learning, but younger students—especially TK-2—are less equipped. Furthermore, the social-emotional skills cultivated in the youngest grades are foundational for future wellbeing. In the classroom, students learn not only academic skills, but social and emotional skills as well. In a classroom of peers led by an expert teacher, students learn to listen and focus, to share, to wait their turn, to encourage others and to allow others to encourage them. They also begin to learn skills such as self-awareness, social awareness, self-management and responsible decision-making that will carry them through life.

There are also immediate health-related benefits for children who are provided in-person instruction, including lower rates of anxiety and depression, higher rates of immunizations, and other positive indicators of public health and wellbeing. These benefits are particularly critical for foster youth, homeless youth, and other students disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, for whom school provides safety and stability. In-person instruction also helps school staff to detect and address child abuse and neglect. For example, the state observed a roughly 40% drop in child welfare referrals following the stay-at-home orders in March 2020 compared to spring averages from the prior year.

Conclusion

Through careful implementation of safety measures and by phasing in our youngest students—who are at the lowest risk and stand to benefit the most from in-person settings—we can build experience, confidence, and trust that our schools can be both safe workplaces and safe learning environments.
