Dear Presidio Students and Families,

 

We are looking forward to seeing our Presidio Panthers back together. School starts tomorrow, Monday, August 20th at 9am. The school day ends at 3:25. Late start Wednesdays begin on August 22nd. Please be mindful that parking around school can be difficult and is additionally impacted this year by the construction project going on in our yard. Families are requested not to double-park or to drop their students off across the street without directing their students to walk down to the corner and cross at a designated crosswalk.

 

An easy after school meeting point for students and families is by “the lions” outside the auditorium. Families may prefer to agree a meeting point with their student a block or two from the school building to reduce the congestion of traffic immediately around our block. There is also a designated 38 Geary MUNI bus that picks up our Presidio students on the corner of 30th and Geary and has extra MUNI staff to support students in riding the bus safely home.

 

Students are reminded that they represent Presidio out in the community, please be safe, respectful, and responsible on your journey to and from school.

 

During the 6th grade Ice Cream Social this past Thursday, we became aware of a glitch that had resulted in some incorrect homeroom assignments.

 

Our administration and counselors worked together on Friday to review every students' homeroom. As a result, 6th grade students may see their initial homeroom assignment has changed. All 6th graders should report to the auditorium on Monday morning to meet their homeroom teachers. If you do not know your homeroom, don't worry, we will help you on Monday morning. 6th graders only may enter the auditorium through the doors at the corner of 30th and Clement. New 6th grade parents are welcome to stay and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea outside the auditorium doors once their student has gone inside; provided by the Presidio PTSA.

 

Due to a change in responsibilities of their teachers, 7th and 8th graders who were previously in homerooms assigned to Ms. Berry, Ms. Jean, Mr. Jenson, Mr. Kyle, and Ms. Ruiz may be assigned to a new homeroom. It is recommended that students from these homerooms check their schedules on Synergy on Monday morning to determine their new homeroom assignment, or check in with a counselor, administrator, or previous homeroom teacher.

 

As a result of construction of our new schoolyard, students and families are requested to note the following: Any students arriving at school prior to the 9am entry bell should enter the lower yard through the 29th Ave gate (the exception being 6th graders entry through the auditorium at 30th on Monday, August 20th).  

 

To support safe and smooth entry to the school building once the 9am start bell rings, 8th graders should enter the building through the main courtyard doors, 7th graders should enter the building using the courtyard entrance to the cafeteria, and 6th graders should enter the building using the courtyard entrance nearest the auditorium. Administrators, Counselors, and School Security will be on hand to direct students to the appropriate entry points.

 

Students are reminded that they may not leave campus once they have entered the yard in the morning, regardless of the time.

 

We are excited for students to enjoy the completed sections of our new school yard. Students are reminded to be Respectful, Responsible, and Represent Presidio on the yard by keeping the space clean, disposing of all trash, recycling, and compost in the appropriate containers, and following all adult directions to ensure a safe and fun area for all to enjoy and share together as a both a place to relax and a place to learn.

 

The remaining section of the yard under construction has been fully enclosed with a fence. All the exposed dirt in the construction area will be watered down to keep the dust down and any exposed soil will be covered. The construction crew is keenly aware of concerns about dust and will take all measures possible to reduce dust. The construction company has assured us that noisy activities will not taken place during instructional time. Please direct any questions or concerns about the construction project to Ms. Dunbar.

 

yours,

 

Ms. Dunbar,

Principal

Dear Presidio Community,

 

I want to inform you of a situation that was brought to our attention by one of our students this morning. A student alerted us that on her way to school today a man approached her on 25th Ave between Clement and California Streets.  The man reached out to her, took her hand and tried to get the child to come with him.  The child is safe and was not abducted or harmed by the man.  The child came immediately to the school and the police were contacted.  The San Francisco Police Department responded, took the report and are on the look out for the man.  The child is safe and she and her parent have been working with the school and the police.

 

Our greatest concern is for safety of our children and incidents like this are frightening to children and families. This is an important reminder to talk with our children about ways to stay safe.

 

Below are a few tips for talking with your child about prevention and staying safe:

• When possible, walk in pairs or groups.
• Make sure parents/guardians know where children are, where they are going and who they are with.
• If your child needs to walk alone, tell them to be VERY aware of their surroundings. NO earbuds or distractions. If a car is driving by slowly, stay away from the sidewalk.
• Do not talk to adults they don't know, especially if the adult is in a car.
• If someone approaches your child or touches them without permission, tell them to scream or yell loudly using words like "no", "help", etc. to make it clear they need help. YES, It is okay to fight back physically in these situations.

 

Sincerely, 


Thomas Ekno
Principal

Starting next Tuesday, all Presidio Middle School students will be taking the SBAC in Math and English. Eighth graders will also be taking the state Science test. We will be on a special bell schedule for three weeks to allow everyone plenty of time to take the test. All students who have earbuds or headphones of their own may use them for audio sections of the exam, your child can bring their earbuds or headphones on Tuesdays and Thursdays for testing - please remind your child to keep them safe as they are their possessions and their responsibility, we do not want them to be lost. Students who need headphones should let their English teacher know, we have limited quantities to lend out during testing. 

 

During testing it is especially important for your child to get a good night’s sleep the night before, to eat breakfast on the day of the test, and to take a deep breathe and relax before they begin. 

 

Please remind your child to bring an independent reading book to class during testing. If they finish early they may read. Any student who has a phone out or on during testing will have violated state testing policy; which is a serious incident - please remind your child make sure to have any electronic devices turned off and put completely away before any testing session begins.

 

SBAC tests are an opportunity for your child to show off all he or she knows and has learned; with your reminders and encouragement we know they will do their best.

If you must drop off your student in front of the school, please drive north on 30th Ave or south on 29th Ave so that they don’t have to cross in front of cars and traffic moves smoothly. Please consider arranging an alternative drop-off/pick-up spot with your student a couple of blocks from the school to help relieve traffic congestion. In all cases, DO NOT BLOCK ANY DRIVEWAYS.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

An increased number of students are absent or have become ill at school with gastroenteritis.  Symptoms of gastroenteritis include vomiting, diarrhea, nausea and/or stomach cramps.  

 

All persons feeling sick should stay home.  Any person with diarrhea and/or vomiting should not return to school for 48 hours AFTER the symptoms have resolved.  

 

The following measures are recommended to prevent the spread of illness: 

• Frequent hand-washing

• Thorough cleaning and disinfecting of contaminated surfaces immediately after an episode of illness with a diluted bleach solution

• Immediate removal and washing of clothing or linens that may be contaminated with virus after an episode of illness (use hot water and soap)

• Washing and sanitizing all utensils after each use and not sharing utensils, food and drinks

 

Frequent hand-washing is being encouraged by school staff;  the custodial staff has taken appropriate steps to clean and disinfect classrooms and other areas in the school.    

 

While almost all people who get gastroenteritis recover completely, it is important to prevent dehydration (severe loss of fluids) during this illness.  

 

For more information refer to the Communicable Disease Control and Prevention, San Francisco Department of Public Health website at www.sfcdcp.org  

 

For any questions, please consult our school district nurse or your child’s health provider.  

 

With your support at home, we will be able to keep our school a healthy place to learn.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Thomas Ekno

Principal

Presidio Middle School’s AVID team encourages all families to support their students in taking Cornell Notes and using them as a study tool. Cornell Notes are a proven form of effective, organized two-column note-taking where the notes appear on the right-hand side of the page and key questions or terms relating to the notes are added in a column to the left. The notes are then summarized in the student’s own words at the end of the page. Cornell Notes are a proven study tool that allows a student to repeatedly engage with class material in a number of ways: note-taking, highlighting key terms and study questions, summarizing material and then returning to the notes to review and study them in the days following class and prior to a test or quiz. Research shows that students who return to material through their notes, after initially receiving information in class, can increase their memory and command of the material by up to 80%. In other words, reviewing Cornell Notes within ten minutes, 24 hours, and again 7 days later reduces the rate of forgetting. Cornell Notes are used in middle schools, high schools, colleges, and universities around the world.

 

AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. Advancement Via Individual Determination

The safety of your child is our primary concern. This is an important reminder to talk with our children about ways to stay safe. 

Below are a few tips for talking with your child about prevention and staying safe.

* When possible, walk in pairs or groups. 
* Make sure parents/guardians know where children are, where they are going and who they are with. 
* If your child needs to walk alone, tell them to be VERY aware of their surroundings. NO earbuds or distractions. If a car is driving by slowly, stay away from the sidewalk.
* Do not talk to adults they don't know, especially if the adult is in a car. 
* If someone approaches your child or touches them without permission, tell them to scream or yell loudly using words like "no", "help", etc. to make it clear they need help. YES, It is okay to fight back physically in these situations. 
* Students should not go to the neighborhood stores before or after school.  The school does not provide supervision off our campus so please remind and encourage your child to stay on the campus before school and to go straight home after school.

Thank you for helping us keeping our children and school safe.

This is a perfect opportunity for new & returning parents to mingle and ask & answer questions.

 

If you are a 6th grade parent, you will escort your student to the door of the auditorium, kiss them goodbye and head outside for adult conversation.  Once your student is seated and the bell rings, their homeroom teachers will call their names and escort them to homeroom, much like they practiced at Step-Up in June. They will receive their class schedules and report to their classes throughout the day.
