The Latest updates on Fall 2020 School Year
Governor Gavin Newsom has outlined the state’s “COVID-19 and Reopening In-Person time Framework” for all California K-12 schools for both public and private education for the upcoming school year. As of today, this new directive mandates that schools only reopen for in-person instruction once their county has been off the “COVID monitoring list” for 14 consecutive days.
This along with prolonged closures in the City of Fremont has posed a challenge for our school while we are making plans to rebuild and reopen. Covid-19 has severely impacted our timeline for in-person instruction. While we remain optimistic that we will return to in-person instruction sometime during the fall, our reopening plan will need to begin with distance learning.
This will allow our teachers to begin preparing a robust distance learning program eliminating the uncertainty of further school interruptions. Our return to school plan enables our students to begin their school year on time (September 8th) while safely delivering an excellent education for your child. Our school and staff will continue to make plans for in-person learning and when it resumes, distance learning will continue to be an option for families throughout the 2020-21 school year.
We will continue to provide information regarding our distance learning plan and re-opening timeline using our school website.
Our distance learning program will offer:
Several daily, live, class sessions per subject with classmates and teachers (30-45 min sessions for Jr.K-1st gr. and 1 hour sessions for 2-8th gr.) providing a total 6 hours of instruction. Adjustments may be made between teachers and families as grouping may occur. All core subjects including full integration of our Workshop Way philosophy, PE, foreign language and computer class Recorded classes and student resources Teacher feedback and graded work Virtual field trips and clubs Structured social break time using Zoom Options for weekly packet pick up.

Who are we? We are a private, independent school founded in 1988. We were the first school in California to use the Workshop Way educational system. The children are grouped and all academics are individualized. All teachers have been trained in Workshop Way Methods. Our teachers are a great team, responsibility, caring, friendly and enthusiastic! Teachers meet to plan and share ideas with each other. We create a social environment where a child feels comfortable, safe and happy. Our most important goal is a child’s healthy self-esteem. We do not push a child beyond their skill level nor do we hold them back from learning. We are students of how children learn. We praise children for their human skills of taking a risk, honesty, being willing to learn, independence, and initiative. We create an environment that encourages a child to explore and learn. We teach in multiple modalities to emphasize all learning styles.
