The Bay Area Quality Management District issued a Smoke Advisory due to the multiple wildfires in the North Bay. Heavy smoke from the wildfires in the North Bay counties is causing very unhealthy air quality throughout the region and the smoke is moving into other parts of the Bay Area due to winds.
The safety and well being of our students and staff are a top priority. We will monitor the air quality for our area. We will implement the following precautions as long as the Smoke Advisory is in effect and the current Air Quality Index remains in the unhealthy range:
Thanks to the support of stakeholders, community members and voters, the District was able to modernize the district facilities in 2007. All classrooms and offices are air-conditioned which allows air to circulate and to be filtered.
Please refer to the AirNow.gov website to access the Air Quality Index for a fast and easy way to monitor the air quality for our area.
Restrictions for specific outdoor school activities will be determined using the Air Quality Index. If your child has a particular medical condition that is exacerbated by the air quality, please notify office staff. Nurse Emma Bihag is on site until 2:30 p.m. every day to assist students with any medical needs they may have.
Open Classroom Meeting Times and October Events Reminders
We would like to invite you cordially to participate in the newly scheduled open classroom meeting times with your child’s teacher.
At the Luther Burbank School District, we are committed to increasing student achievement so that our students are prepared to be successful in secondary school. Parent and guardian participation in a student’s education are crucial to academic progress. For this reason, we want to provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to meet informally with teachers to check on their child’s academic progress, if they so wish. These are drop-in times that you can meet with your child’s teacher informally and are not the same as the Parent-Teacher Conferences in which you receive the official report cards.
Participation by teachers in the drop-in meetings is voluntary, so a teacher may not be available to meet on the scheduled dates. Parents and guardians are encouraged to make appointments to meet with teachers if you or the teacher is not available on the scheduled dates.
Gates will be open for parents/guardians at 3:10 p.m., and they may go directly to their child’s classroom. Drop in times are scheduled between 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Please see the attached reminder of events in October 2017.
