Posted on: November 2, 2020

Our NAE PTP is hosting a Read A Thon in place of the Jog A Thon this year.

You can participate Nov. 2 – Dec. 1

NAE Fall in Love with a Good Book Read-A-Thon:

With some of our favorite school traditions like School Carnival and Jog-A-Thon on hold till the spring, NAE PTP is excited to share our Fall In Love with a Good Book Read-A-Thon for the month of November. For 4 weeks, students will be asked to read a little bit everyday with a goal for total minutes read during the month. We encourage students to share this reading challenge with their family and friends to help us fundraise for our school and community.

Dear North Albany Families,

North Albany Elementary PTP is excited to bring a fun, new school event to students and their families! The “Fall in Love with a Good Book Read-A-Thon” will run through the month of November and challenge students to read a little bit every day while also raising money to support our school and our community.

We invite our North Albany families to help their children track their daily reading using the Read for My School’s digital platform. We would also love if you would share your child’s progress toward their monthly reading goal and our fundraising drive with friends and family. Students will have opportunities to earn rewards along the way as well as prizes for top readers and top reading classrooms.

Here are some of our reading and fundraising goals for this fundraiser:

  • A school reading goal to reach 50,000 minutes read!
  • A school fundraising goal of $3,000 to help add books to NAE’s library and support future classroom needs as well as lend a hand with relief efforts for a local elementary school that is in need after the recent wildfires.

Dear Parents:
Sometimes we have to close school, delay the start of school, or release early because of bad weather. This is the annual reminder of procedures for school closures or schedule changes due to inclement weather.

When the decision has been made to close school or delay the start, we rely on local radio and television stations for notifications. Closure and delayed start information will ordinarily be broadcast by 6:30 a.m. Closure information will also be posted on the district website at www.albany.k12.or.us.

Our district subscribes to FlashAlert. This service forwards school closure information to local radio and television stations. Staff, parents, or community members wishing to receive these notices directly can register at http://www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=879. Notifications will be sent to you via email.

There are no costs to the recipients for using the email or app notifications. You may want to login to your FlashAlert account now to make sure your contact information is up to date. All addresses registered on FlashAlert will remain confidential. Subscribers should be aware that some email spam filters can prevent messages from being received.

Estimados Padres de Familia:
A veces tenemos que clausurar la escuela, empezar tarde o salir temprano, por causa del mal clima. Esta carta anual es para recordarles de los procedimientos que usamos cuando debemos clausurar la escuela o cambiar los horarios por causa del mal clima.
Cuando la decisión de la clausura de la escuela o la de empezar más tarde ha sido tomada,
dependemos de las radios locales y las estaciones de televisión. La información sobre la clausura y el retraso de las clases, por lo general se empezará a transmitir desde las 6:30 am. La información sobre la clausura estará también publicada en el lugar de la red del distrito en www.albany.k12.or.us.

Nuestro distrito está subscrito a un programa que envía mensajes de alerta llamado FlashAlert. Este servicio envía información de los cierres de la escuela a las estaciones de radio y televisión locales. Los miembros del personal, padres o miembros de la comunidad que desean recibir estas notificaciones directamente pueden registrarse en http://www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=879. Las notificaciones luego serán enviadas vía correo electrónico. Para aquellos de ustedes que tienen una tableta o teléfono inteligente, pueden recibir mensajes bajando la aplicación “FlashAlert Messenger app”. Esta aplicación está disponible en Google Play o en la tienda iTunes app store. No hay costos
para los suscriptores por recibir notificaciones vía correo electrónico o la aplicación. Ahora
mismo, seria bueno ingresar a su cuenta de “FlashAlert” para asegurar que su información de contacto este actualizada.

Todas las direcciones de correos electrónicos registradas en FlashAlert se mantendrán
confidenciales. Los subscriptores deben tener en cuenta que algunos filtros en contra de “spam”
(correos no deseados), podrían impedir que reciba mensajes.
A continuación están algunas de las estaciones de radio y televisión que serán notificadas de los cierres de las escuelas:

Estaciones de Radio FM:

KEHK FM 102.3
KFLY FM 101.5
KKNU FM 93.3

**El canal de televisión puede variar de acuerdo al área de escucha.
Si es necesario clausurar la escuela por el mal clima, el Día de los Presidentes en febrero y la semana después del fin del año escolar en junio, normalmente son días designados para recuperar los días perdidos por el mal clima.

Si usted tiene alguna pregunta acerca de los procedimientos mencionados anteriormente, por favor comuníquese con su escuela o con el Centro de Bienvenida al 541-704-2376.

Atentamente,
J. Tim Mills
Superintendente
