YG Newsletter – November 5

YG Newsletter – November 5

Dear friends and families of Yujin Gakuen,

Thank you to all the families who came today to pick up supplies and teacher-created materials. Most of the supplies were picked up today, but there are still quite a few remaining. Families who have not picked up supplies, please contact the office (541-790-4606) to make arrangements to pick up at another time.

We have just a few announcements this week. See below. Have a good evening and enjoy the rest of the week.

Holiday Food Boxes

Hi everyone!

With the holidays and school breaks coming up, we wanted to share with you the plan for student meals through Nutrition Services.

Thanksgiving: Nutrition Services will provide a four-day meal box with the Wednesday meal bag, available with the normal pickup or delivery systems. The box will have a serving size for four days with: Turkey and gravy (scratch cooked, ready to heat), red potatoes (instant), cranberry sauce (can), rolls (fresh) and other canned or prepared items, and milk. We are working on vegetarian options and gluten free as well.

Winter Break: two meal boxes will be available for pickup, or by request through delivery

Friday, Dec 18 a meal box with frozen/shelf stable items for up to 9 days will be provided per student.
Monday, Dec 28 a meal box for up to 8 days will be provided per student, for those who may need it.

Technology Appropriate Use Expectations

4J established the 2020-21 Summary Tech Appropriate Use Expectations (Spanish version). These serve as guidelines for technology use, summarized, along with the device protection information. We are sharing this with families, students and teachers to help establish expectations for use of technology resources. It includes points that are important to teachers and students, such as expectations that students not record the teacher or others or take screenshots without permission. It also includes information about the Student Device Protection Plan.
Families should note that devices may not be taken out of state, and many learning applications will not work and cannot be supported outside of Oregon.

Key back-to-school information for families 

This is a repeat of information already sent to families, but I thought it would be helpful to send it again.

Do you have what you need for your student’s return to learning? Here are links to some key back-to-school information. For more information see the 4J webpage.
