MHS Monday Morning Updates

Good Morning Millennium High School Falcons!

 

Reminder:  We still have a few students who did not pick up their picture packet and ID card.  They are located in the front office and you can come in any time from 7:30am to 4:30pm to collect your packet.


MHS FAST TRACK 2021 – On-Campus and In-Person


We are pleased to offer our unique program for Millennium High students known as FAST TRACK this summer.  FAST TRACK 2021 will take place fully in-person and on-campus this year with all required COVID-19 safety precautions in place – there is no online, distance-learning format available. 
 
FAST TRACK schedules will be mailed home the first week of May.
 
For FAST TRACK 2021 ONLY, students who decline the opportunity to take a FAST TRACK class for any reason must inform us by returning the form that will be enclosed in the mailing. Please do not inform us now – await the letter in the mail the first week of May and follow the procedure outlined therein if you choose to decline. Please be aware that if you decline, the scheduled class will instead be added to the student’s schedule for the 2021-2022 school year.

FAST TRACK is an integral part of our program which gives students the opportunity to take ten credits of a course to remediate or accelerate, and/or to take a Delta College course.  During FAST TRACK, students take a full year (two semesters) of a course for 4.25 hours a day (includes a fifteen minute break) for five weeks beginning Friday, May 21st to Friday, June 25th. The day begins at 8:30AM and ends at 12:45 PM. Students should expect at least an hour of homework each day.

ATTENDANCE: Attendance during FAST TRACK is different from the school year in that students are only allowed to miss 8 hours of time during the entire FAST TRACK. Tardies count as one hour and a day is four hours. Any combination above 8 hours results in a need to withdraw and an F grade for the affected semester. There are no excused absences during FAST TRACK. This is necessary in order to meet the state requirement for issuing credit for a year’s worth of a course. Students may not miss more than two days (8 total hours). Four tardies are the equivalent of one day of school, therefore; two days absent and one tardy will result in a failing grade.

Please watch for your FAST TRACK schedule in the mail the first week of May.  Thank you!

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.

A staff member holds the door open for students on the first day of school at Goodwin Frazier Elementary School in New Braunfels, Texas, last August.

Mikala Compton/Herald-Zeitung via AP

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.
