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.

Our district subscribes to FlashAlert. This service forwards school closure information to local radio and television stations.

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

**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

Message to Special Programs Families / Mensaje para las familias de los Programas Especiales

Posted on: April 10, 2020

Dear Parents of Students who have Individualized Education Plans (IEPs),

We know that this is a trying time for all of us, and we look forward to working together to serve our students with IEPs. We realize that as parents you know your students and circumstances best. Our goal is to provide you the option of access to the services in your child’s IEP as well as the general education curriculum. 

We have developed a plan that we believe will meet most of the IEP needs for your children with full awareness that these IEPs were developed to be implemented in a physical school setting under the full time guidance of trained professionals, which is no longer the case. Our goal is meet each of our families where you are in this difficult situation and provide the individual support that you need to the best of our ability. 

You will be hearing from your student’s Case Manager this week to discuss the options to serve your child during distance learning. Here are some important things for you to know:

  • All Special Education Teachers will create a classroom contact site using Class Dojo or Google Classroom.
  • Each Special Education Teacher will have virtual office hours where you and/or your student can choose a check-in time, at least weekly.
  • The district has selected a limited set of resources at this time but will be looking at expanding the options as we move forward. 
  • We are working on providing Chromebooks and internet solutions to students in need, but all of our resources will also have an offline option available if needed.
  • Service minutes on an IEP reflect the total amount of time spent on that content. If you feel that it is too much time in the home setting, please let your case manager know. We want to be flexible with the amount of work we ask for and tailor to individual needs.
  • Students and families will receive direction for how to access each goal area of the IEP.
  • Students who receive speech services will be hearing from their SLP regarding how those services will be delivered.

We understand that this is a challenging time for all of us, and we want you to know that we care about you and are here for you and your family. We invite you to communicate with your school’s Special Education teacher at any time and we will work together to come up with a plan that is workable for your family.

Please know that you and your children are sorely missed by their teachers. We look forward to touching base soon! 

Special Programs Staff

Estimados padres de estudiantes que tienen Planes de Educación Individualizado (IEP por sus siglas en inglés):

Sabemos que este es un momento difícil para todos nosotros, y esperamos trabajar juntos para servir a nuestros estudiantes con IEP. Nos damos cuenta de que, como padres, ustedes conocen mejor a sus estudiantes y sus circunstancias. Nuestro objetivo es brindarle la opción de acceso a los servicios en el IEP de su hijo/a, así como en el plan de estudios de educación general. 

Hemos desarrollado un plan que creemos que satisfará la mayoría de las necesidades de IEP, para sus hijos con plena conciencia de que estos IEP se desarrollaron para implementarse en un entorno escolar físico, bajo la guía a tiempo completo de profesionales capacitados, lo cual ya no es el caso. Nuestro objetivo es conocer a cada una de nuestras familias, en las que se encuentra esta difícil situación y brindarles el apoyo individual que necesitan, de la mejor manera posible. 

Esta semana tendrá noticias del gerente de caso de su hijo/a, para hablar sobre las opciones para atender a su hijo/a durante el aprendizaje a distancia. Aquí hay algunas cosas importantes que debe saber:

  • Todos los maestros de educación especial crearán un sitio de contacto del salón de clase, usando las plataformas “Class Dojo” o “Google Classroom”.
  • Cada maestro de educación especial tendrá un horario de oficina virtual donde usted y/o su estudiante pueden elegir un horario para hacer revisiones, al menos semanalmente.
  • El distrito ha seleccionado un conjunto limitado de recursos en este momento, pero buscará expandir las opciones a medida que avancemos.
  • Estamos trabajando para proporcionar “Chromebooks” (especie de laptop) y soluciones de Internet a los estudiantes que lo necesitan, pero todos nuestros recursos también tendrán disponible una opción fuera del Internet si es necesario.
  • Los minutos de servicio en un IEP reflejan la cantidad total de tiempo dedicado a ese contenido. Si cree que es demasiado tiempo en el hogar, infórmele a su gerente de caso. Queremos ser flexibles con la cantidad de trabajo que solicitamos y adaptarnos a las necesidades individuales.
  • Los estudiantes y las familias recibirán instrucciones sobre cómo acceder a cada área de meta del IEP.
  • Los estudiantes que reciben servicios de habla y lenguaje, recibirán noticias de su Especialista de Habla y Lenguaje (SLP por sus siglas en inglés) sobre cómo se prestarán esos servicios.

Entendemos que este es un momento desafiante para todos nosotros, y queremos que sepa que nos preocupamos por usted y que estamos aquí para usted y su familia. Lo invitamos a comunicarse con el maestro de Educación Especial de su escuela en cualquier momento y trabajaremos juntos para llegar a un plan que sea viable para su familia.

Por favor sepa que usted y sus hijos son profundamente extrañados por sus maestros. ¡Esperamos conectarnos con usted pronto!
