TLC Charter Chatter – Week of 8/8

TLC Charter Chatter

News, Information, and Updates for Primary, Discovery, and Millennium Charter Schools

A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Thank you to all who attended Discovery and Millennium’s back-to-school nights this week. It was wonderful to see such a great turnout and to welcome parents back to campus. The entire staff is here for you; if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

We have implemented a new safety protocol here at TLC. All staff and students are required to wear lanyards during the school day. Wearing ID badges is an important element of safeguarding in schools- they help prevent unauthorized personnel from entering school property, and wearing a distinctive lanyard in the same color helps to easily identify staff and students.

If your Discovery or Millennium student forgets their lanyard, they will be issued a green loaner, which will have to be returned at the end of the day. If they repeatedly forget their lanyard, a replacement student lanyard will need to be purchased for $5.00. Please help ensure that your student comes prepared with their lanyard each day. (Primary students keep their lanyards in their classrooms).

Thank you for your cooperation!

Mrs. Woods

Primary Charter School

It was a fantastic second week in PCS! All of our students are enjoying the new breakfast time and we love our Friday Unity!

If you are picking up your child through one of the walking options, please have their carline tag with you. This will ensure a safe and efficient pickup process.

Now that our afternoon carline is running smoothly, we will end our carline at 3:35 every day. If you arrive to pick your child up after 3:35, this will be considered late pickup and you will need to pick them up from the office.

Thank you for being on time!

PCS Picture day will be August 24 for grades K-4.

TK picture day will be August 25.

What is a SELPA?

In California, every local education agency (LEA) is required to belong to a Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). The SELPA is a consortium of LEAs responsible for the development of special education policies and procedures, distribution of federal and state special education funds, and providing a range of professional development pertaining to special education. With this support, the Charter SELPA’s partners continue to demonstrate the capacity to provide high quality special education programs to their students. The El Dorado Charter SELPA was the first statewide charter-only SELPA. The Charter SELPA is a cooperative model designed to ensure special education programs are available for all students with disabilities.

Tracy Learning Center is part of the El Dorado Charter SELPA.

SELPA Website: El Dorado Charter SELPA

El Dorado Charter SELPA’s Community Advisory Committee is a group formed to advise the Charter SELPA about the Special Education Local Plan, annual priorities, parent education, and other special education related activities. The CAC is designed to be a dynamic collaborative partnership of educators, parents, and community members. The CAC holds three business meetings annually to address topics of interest to families of children with disabilities and gather information to advise our Special Education Local Plan.

IMPORTANT

As required by California law (Health and Safety Code 120325 – 120375), parents need to provide proof of a Tdap vaccine (pertussis – Whooping Cough Booster) for all students entering the 7th grade. Documentation must state the shot was given on or after their 7th birthday. This means ALL current 7th graders must get up to date NOW.

It is important that you begin now, to ensure your child gets his/her required vaccination prior to school re-opening on August 1, 2022. We suggest you call and arrange this vaccine appointment asap.

Getting them up to date now, will not only protect them against Pertussis but also ensure class placement and prevent exclusion from school once students return to campus.

Remember to ask your physician about other vaccines your child may need, and bring your child’s yellow immunization card to the visit. Please return a copy of ALL up-to-date immunizations to school prior to the beginning of the next year school year.

For questions, please call your primary physician today or call the San Joaquin County Public Health Services Program, at (209) 468-3481.

Students will not be allowed to attend campus classes without his/her completion of all school-required vaccines/immunizations.

New CDPH COVID Guidelines for California Schools

 

 

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

 

We are continuing to follow the guidelines set forth by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to ensure the safety of our staff and students. Upon their recommendation, due to the contagious nature of recent COVID-19 variants, we will not be providing individual exposure notifications at this time.  Instead, please know that there is currently a high potential to be exposed to someone with COVID-19 (both in and out of school) and we encourage ALL students to follow the actions below to protect one another:

 

  • Wearing a mask in indoor settings is highly recommended to protect yourself and prevent the spread COVID-19. High-quality masks with a good fit and filtration provide the best protection.

 

  • If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, stay home and get tested. You may get tested at a local testing site or use an over-the-counter (at-home) test.

 

  • If you test positive for COVID-19, isolate at home and notify us right away at 209-290-0511. When you notify us, we can take additional steps to keep our school community safe.

 

  • Stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations. Vaccination remains the best way to protect yourself against severe disease.

 

We will reassess the situation as updated guidance is released. Note that infections diagnosed in students and school staff are not necessarily the result of exposure at school, and when safety protocols are followed in schools, COVID-19 transmission remains more likely to occur outside of school settings.

 

Thank you for considering this important information.  We consider the health and well-being of our community a priority.

 

Sincerely,

Carolyn Woods

CEO, Tracy Learning Center

A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Welcome back to all of our returning families and big welcome to TLC to our newest additions! I am Carolyn Woods, the CEO of the Tracy Learning Center. My responsibilities are similar to those of a superintendent at district schools. I am responsible for carrying out all of the policies of the governing board. As the CEO, I set the vision for the school culture, serve as the financial officer for all of the schools, ensure that all requirements of the charter are met, provide administrative support for curriculum and instruction, oversee the staff and students from preschool through 12th grade and provide support to all stakeholders including parents and community members . . . among other things! I am dedicated to ensuring that the Tracy Learning Center schools thrive and that the staff, students and parents feel supported.

I have worked at the Tracy Learning Center since 2004, starting as the first kindergarten teacher at Primary. From 2004 to 2018, I taught grades K-4, while also serving as the school leader for Primary for many years. In 2017 I transitioned to a full-time administrative role as the Director of Human Resources and Student Support. Last year, I was humbled and honored to be named the CEO of the Tracy Learning Center, succeeding Virginia Stewart, who had been at the helm for twenty years. I was privileged to work closely with Virginia and learn all that I could from her. TLC is near and dear to my heart, and almost quite literally a second home for my family as my husband, Mr. Woods, teachers at the high school (and has been since 2003!) and my daughters attend Discovery and Millennium. My son graduated from Millennium in 2019, after attending TLC since kindergarten, and is now a senior in college!

I believe in our program and feel we offer an educational experience unlike any other. We are a charter school for a reason, we exist to be different and to try new and innovative ways of teaching. Our students come first! Thank you for choosing to be a part of the TLC family.

Sincerely,

Carolyn Woods

Primary Charter School

Welcome back PCS families! We are excited to start another great school year with our little Falcons!

Thank you for making our first week carline a smooth and efficient system. Remember, there are 3 pick up options this year: drive through the carline, parent walk up, and walkers (must have permission for this option). We would appreciate it if parents do not park along the carline route on Mae, as it slows down the cars that are driving through. Also, as a courtesy, please do not park in carline and leave your car unattended in the moving line as you walk up to get your child. Thank you for partnering with us to get your child to you quickly and safely!

If you have a PCS student and a DCS student, you may drop them both off in the DCS front carline and your Primary student will wait with them until 7:45. No need to wait in both carlines!

Don’t forget to order your Spirit Wear! The online store will close on August 12. Go to: http://www.selectspiritwear.com/ Please put your child’s room number on your order to ensure prompt delivery.

 

PCS Picture day will be August 24 for grades K-4. TK picture day will be August 25. Please be on the lookout for more information to come home soon.
