    Principal's Message

    Good Afternoon, Kaiser Community!

    If you watched the NMUSD Board meeting on Tuesday evening, this will be old news. For everyone else...

    Our school board approved two big avenues to pursue for the upcoming school year:

    1. Offer a Virtual (Online) School - this is a home school option. Parents will be able to opt into this and, if desired, can opt back into their schools at natural transition times (e.g., trimesters).

    2. Flex with COVID (my words) - more officially referred to currently as "Brick and Click" - the intention is to have students at school as much as possible. If there are disease surges that require schools to close for periods of time, students would move with their classes into distance learning.

    At this time, we as a district are preparing for both avenues. We have a lengthy list of  of things to figure out based on ongoing and updated health information while preparing curriculum, etc. 

    Families will be able to select from the two big avenues. Much more information will follow as summer progresses. Each of these options is being fleshed out right now.

    I will do my best to keep you updated as plans are finalized. You also will receive information straight from NMUSD. In the meantime, please enjoy your summer!

    Elbow bumps to you all!
    Deborah Granger

    Buenas tardes, Comunidad Kaiser!

    Si vio la reunión de la Junta de NMUSD el martes por la noche, esta será una noticia vieja. Para todos los demás ...

    Nuestra junta escolar aprobó dos grandes caminos para el próximo año escolar:
    1. Ofrecer una escuela virtual (en línea): esta es una opción de escuela de origen. Los padres podrán optar por esto y, si lo desean, pueden optar por volver a sus escuelas en tiempos de transición natural (por ejemplo, trimestres).
    2. Flex con COVID (mis palabras) - más conocido oficialmente como "Brick and Click" - la intención es tener estudiantes en la escuela tanto como sea posible. Si hay oleadas de enfermedades que requieren que las escuelas cierren por períodos de tiempo, los estudiantes pasarían con sus clases a la educación a distancia.

    En este momento, nosotros como distrito nos estamos preparando para ambas avenidas. Tenemos una larga lista de cosas que resolver en función de la información de salud actual y actualizada mientras preparamos el plan de estudios, etc.

    Las familias podrán seleccionar entre las dos grandes avenidas. Mucha más información seguirá a medida que avanza el verano. Cada una de estas opciones se está desarrollando en este momento.

    Haré todo lo posible para mantenerlo actualizado a medida que finalicen los planes. También recibirá información directamente de NMUSD. Mientras tanto, ¡disfruta tu verano!

    ¡El codo te golpea a todos!
