April 30th Morning Event
We had an exciting start to our day today!  PG&E experienced a loss of power out in front of our school before the start of school this morning.  As a result, a few of the A/C units on top of the school buildings overloaded and were damaged.  Smoke from the units went into the multipurpose room and Rooms 3 & 4.  We immediately cleared the buildings and called the Fire Dept.   Our maintenance dept. and the fire dept. found the damaged A/C units and shut them off.  The fire department did not discover anything other than the units and cleared us to bring students back into buildings.  We inspected every classroom and brought students back in after the inspections.  The students in Rooms 3 & 4 are currently in other classrooms.  We are back to business as usual.  PG&E corrected the electrical issue and our maintenance department is currently inspecting all of the units.  
I want to thank all of you for your patience this morning while we addressed the situation.  I also want to thank all of the parents that were at our school helping to monitor students.  If you have any questions, please call me at 830-3325 or email me at wmaslyar@tusd.net.
We will be holding Open House tonight at 7:00 p.m. as planned.  Please join us this evening to see all of the great things our students have been doing this year.  Note:  Mrs. La Velle will not be in Room 4.  She will be doing Open House in Room 23 tonight.  We hope to see you tonight!

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Hello Poet Families,

 
      State Testing is beginning very soon for some of our students.  The students will be heading into the computer lab to complete most of the CAASPP Testing online.  The CAASPP (CAlifornia Assessment of Student  Performance and Progress) is made up of two tests:  Smarter Balanced online testing + STAR 5th & 8th Grade Science (paper and pencil).  The CAASPP is for 3rd through 8th grade at the Elementary Level.  We are hoping to send our 5th & 6th graders to Science Camp during the week of Apr. 20-24, so we are having them test before spring break along with our 3rd graders.  Most of the students in grades 4th-8th will be testing during the 3 weeks after spring break.   The students have between 6.5 to 7.5 hours of testing at each grade level and will be testing one hour per day during a two to three week span.    They will be taking two Math tests and two Language Arts tests with each test taking 1-2 hours to complete.  Please see the testing schedule that was sent along with this edition of the Eagle View.
Attendance during testing is critical.  We are required to test at least 95% of our students and our attendance during the last three months has been well below that level.  Although we do not want our students to come to school sick, we would like you to avoid pulling your student out of school during testing.  We will be pulling students from class to do make-ups  as we go and we would rather have students test with their classmates on their days of testing.
 
Headphones/Earbuds:  The  online testing comes with audio clips and prompts and students are required to use earbuds.  We are encouraging students to bring their own set of headphones or earbuds if they wish.  Although we do have earbuds for all of the students to use, they are not the best quality.  Note:  students will not be sharing the earbuds we have for them.  For sanitary reasons they will be using the same set for the duration of testing and the earbuds will not be used again.  It is very expensive to purchase earbuds every year and therefore we are encouraging students to bring their own set. 
If you have any questions about testing, please talk with your student’s teacher or contact me at 830-3325 or wmaslyar@tusd.net.  Thank you for your help and support during testing!
 
 
 
Mr. Maslyar
