California School Parent Survey, 2020-2021 Browns School Your school needs you to complete this online survey to learn more about your opinions about it. This survey is an opportunity to communicate your perceptions about your child’s school. This letter explains the survey and, at the bottom of the page, provides your URL and access instructions. If you have any questions about this survey, contact Mike Scully 633-2523. The purpose of this survey is to obtain parent perceptions about the school. Your participation is voluntary. It is also very important. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement. • This is an anonymous survey. It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data. You do not have to respond to any questions that you feel could be used to identify you. Simply skip any such questions. • All questions apply to this school only. • The results are for the use of your district. The California Department of Education and WestEd will preserve data confidentiality and refer any data requests to the district.

Good afternoon, Last Tuesday the Browns School Board hired Kerrie Corbridge to be the new Superintendent/Principal beginning the 2021-2022 school year. Mrs. Corbridge has been teaching here for over 15 years. She attended school here as did her daughter. She was by far the most qualified candidate and we are confident that Kerrie will be an excellent administrator. She holds the values and traditions of our school close to her heart and will ensure that Browns will remain the welcoming and safe place to bring your children. Sincerely, Browns School

Browns Elementary School Hello Browns Students and Families, We are a go for getting our students back on campus in a phased manner. Dr. Luu sent us an email late last week given our school permission. Things will start slow and steady until we get the green light to get more students back on campus for longer hours. As stated by the California Department of Public Health we are bringing our students back in two cohorts. Cohort A (Last Names A-L) will be attending school on Mondays and Tuesdays. Cohort B (Last Names M-Z) will be Thursday and Friday. The one exception will be 2nd and 3rd grades. Second grade will be on Monday and Tuesdays. Third grade will be Thursday and Fridays. Wednesday will be distance learning for all students. We will be using Wednesdays for deep cleaning here at Browns. If you have specific needs, please contact your students’ teacher. Starting February 16th, K-3rd grades will return. Starting February 22nd, 4th and 5th grades will return. Starting March 1st, 6th, 7th and 8th will come back. The recommendations from county health have been clear and consistent as far as opening, go slow! Meaning don’t bring everyone back at once. Our goal is to have all students back on campus full days as soon as allowable by our State and County Health Departments. Upon the advice of public health, we will be returning slowly. We will be attending school from 8:30-11:30. Drop off is promptly at 8:30. If a child comes to school with a fever of 100.4 or more they will be sent home immediately. Pick up time is promptly at 11:30. There are no exceptions. We do not have Daycare or Transportation at this time. We hope to train our older students to be models for the younger students when they return. Please be aware that we may have to close classrooms if there are suspected cases of the virus. It will take a big effort on the part of our families to keep your children home with the slightest symptoms. Other topics to be aware of: • **Masks will be required for grades K-8.** • 6’ social distancing will be implemented. • Daily temperatures will be taken each morning and throughout the day. • Students will not be allowed to attend in person if they have a fever, or any cold/flu symptoms, including runny noses, sore throats, coughs, etc. • Transportation will not be available. • Daycare will not be offered. • Meals will not be served daily, but continue for the week on Wednesdays. Lunches need to be ordered by 10 o’clock each Tuesday. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us for any questions. Sincerely, Mike Scully Browns School

Hello to our Browns School Families, Last week the California Department of Public Health came out with a 51 page document concerning reopening schools. All the items must be in place before schools can bring students back on campus. Our legal counsel has informed us that if a school reopens without following this order they will be subject to significant financial risk. Our local health department has told us not to reopen at this time. We can not afford this risk so we will follow all these guidelines before we bring students back. Thank you and take care. https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/CDPH%20Document%20Library/COVID-19/Consolidated_Schools_Guidance.pdf

Browns School 1248 Pacific Avenue, Rio Oso, CA 95674 530-633-2523  530-633-0345 Hello Browns School Families, 1/15/2021 We are still in Distance Learning until we get the permission from the Sutter Health Department to bring students back on campus safely. Hopefully by the end of next week we will have more information. I will give you all a weekly update on our status. Although current public health conditions remain fluid and very dynamic, we continue to work with public health and labor partners on how to reopen schools. We all want to bring students back to school safely. We understand the level of frustration felt by many and ask everyone to stay focused on learning, and to stay vigilant about hand washing, wearing face masks and keep social distancing, especially by avoiding social gatherings. Due to the current high positivity rate currently in the community we are not able to reopen for a few more weeks at the soonest. We are working on getting a date out but the Public Health Department needs to give us the green light. A ray of hope we are following are the recent public announcements that those who work in education will be in the county’s 1b group to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. This is very promising and positive news for all of our staff. Based on recent District data, the threat of COVID-19 impacts not only our teaching staff, but also all of the essential workers who are critical for the operation of our District. Please stay tuned. If you have further questions please feel free to call us or email me directly. I am always willing to have a conversation with you at any time. Please take care and stay safe! Sincerely, Mike Scully Browns School
