COVID update, Picture Day, Logo & Jog-a-thon

We made it through our first full week of school!  I cannot tell you how excited we all are to have our students back on campus full time.  

COVID Update:
According to the SCUSD COVID Dashboard, Phoebe Hearst Elementary has had zero cases on campus for the month of September.  It is my hopes that we keep with that trend. We must all do our part as we all play a vital role with mitigation strategies.  We temperature screen all students before they enter the classroom, have testing on site, and practice the health and safety mitigation strategies as outlined in our Return to Health Plan.  As a reminder, please keep your children home if they have any symptoms.  If you know that your child has been a close contact, please alert me or our health aide as soon as possible.  It is through our collective vigilance that we will keep our children safe and at school.  

Picture day:
Picture day is next Friday, September 24th.  It will be a free dress Friday so have your child wear their best for their 21-22 school pictures. Retakes will be on October 29th.  

New Phoebe Hearst Logo:
A big thank you to parent, Kathryn O’Connell, for designing our new Phoebe Hearst logo! You will see this unveiled on our Jog-a-thon swag in October.  Thank you, Kathryn!

PTO News
Our school-wide jog-a-thon is on Oct 22. Students will run with their grade level for 15 minutes as fast/far as they can on a course on our field. 

Each child is fundraising as much as she/he/they can for the event — the more each student fundraises, the more prizes the student earns. (Prizes include jog-a-thon attire that can be worn as uniform attire.)

We have some additional prizes, including a dedicated parking spot for the family that collectively fundraises the most. 

September 24th is our deadline for accepting donations. When your student turns in his/her/their donation envelopes, please be sure to include the sizes for the earned prizes, which you can do here: 

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend.
