SLCSD COVID19 (Coronavirus) Update 3-12-2020

 

March 12, 2020

Dear Glendale Community,

It has come to our attention that several students and families from our school attended the Utah Jazz game this past Monday and came into contact with a Jazz player who now has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Immediately upon learning of this, we reached out the Salt Lake County Health Department and asked for their help.

The Salt Lake County Health Department, along with the Utah Department of Health and local hospitals, are investigating this situation and working to determine if anyone locally may have had contact with individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 while the individuals were experiencing symptoms. The Salt Lake County Health Department has not yet identified anyone at risk, but health officials assure us that they will be in contact with anyone they determine may have been exposed. There is no evidence to suggest there is currently any risk to our students or staff.

As a precaution, some of the families who attended Monday’s Utah Jazz game have chosen to self-quarantine for 14 days. While the health department has informed us that there is no reason to believe our staff or students are at risk, we wanted to communicate this information to you. We are aware of this situation and will accommodate any students who need to miss school for an extended period of time.

Please be assured that we are doing everything we can to keep your children safe. We will continue to work closely with the Salt Lake County Health Department and the Utah Department of Health to keep you up to date as the COVID-19 situation unfolds.

Sincerely,

Dr. Lexi Cunningham
Superintendent

Update Letter


12 marzo 2020

Queridas familias,

Nos hemos enterado que varias familias y estudiantes de nuestra escuela asistieron al partido de los Utah Jazz el lunes pasado y estuvieron en contacto con un jugador de los Jazz que ha sido diagnosticado con COVID-19. Inmediatamente después de enterarnos, contactamos al Departamento de Salud del Condado de Salt Lake y solicitamos su ayuda.

El Departamento de Salud del Condado de Salt Lake, junto con el Departamento de Salud de Utah y los hospitales locales están investigando esta situación y estan trabajando para determinar si alguien pudo haber tenido contacto con personas que dieron positivo para COVID-19 mientras las personas experimentaban síntomas. El Departamento de Salud del Condado de Salt Lake aún no ha identificado a nadie en riesgo, pero los oficiales de salud nos aseguran que estarán en contacto con cualquier persona que determinen que pudo haber estado expuesta. No hay evidencia que sugiera que actualmente exista algún riesgo para nuestros estudiantes o personal.

Como medida de precaución, algunas de las familias que fueron al partido de los Jazz el lunes han optado por la cuarentena por 14 días. El departamento de salud nos ha informado que no hay razón para creer que nuestro personal o estudiantes están en riesgo, pero quisimos comunicarle esta información de todos modos. Estamos conscientes de esta situación y habra flexibilidad para los estudiantes que necesiten faltar a la escuela por un período de tiempo prolongado.

Tenga la seguridad de que estamos haciendo todo lo posible para mantener la salud y seguridad de sus hijos. Continuaremos trabajando directamente con el Departamento de Salud del Condado de Salt Lake y el Departamento de Salud de Utah para mantenerlo al tanto de la situación  con el COVID-19.

Sinceramente,

Dra. Lexi Cunningham
Superintendente

Carta de actualización

SLCSD Coronavirus Update 3-3-2020

 

COVID-19 Update

We know in recent weeks our community has paid close attention to the outbreak of novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19). In response, the Salt Lake City School District has been in regular communication with the Salt Lake County Health Department (SLCHD) and the Utah Department of Health (UDOH) as they monitor the progress of COVID-19. Our district relies heavily on the expertise of these agencies on issues related to public health. We follow their recommendations closely and are grateful for their support in informing us about these important topics. 

 

To date, there have been no confirmed cases of coronavirus contracted in Utah, although one person has been quarantined in a Utah hospital as part of a transition plan to his home in St. George. While UDOH says immediate risk of this new virus for most of the American public is believed to be low at this time, everyone can do their part to help prevent spreading illness.

 

Here are some tips for what you can do right now to prevent the spread of any flu-like illness.

  • Talk with your children about the importance of good hygiene habits, including proper handwashing instruction.

  • Stay home if you are sick, and keep you students home if they are sick.

  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and encourage your students to do the same.

  • Wash your hands regularly.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • If you or your child do have flu-like symptoms – sore throat, fever, cough, runny nose – please call your doctor.

 

If you need help accessing medical care, please speak with your child’s teacher or school principal for help in connecting to local resources.

We will work with our local health departments as they continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 in our communities, and we will provide you with updates when needed. In the meantime, you can find more information on the following websites.

 

 

SLCSD Parent Letter

2019 After School Teacher of the Year! JUST ANNOUNCED!

Congratulations to Lucas Tucker who has been nominated After School Teacher of the Year

This is what was said about him:

“Lucas Tucker is essential to the afterschool program and is the epitome of selflessness, service, and dedication every day, for every student, an in every opportunity. He acts as a bridge between the day school and afterschool programming and encourages students to conquer barriers and holds them to the highest of standards. Lucas recognized many students cannot afford the fees to participate in afterschool, sports, or summer school programming, so each year he collaborates to raise money for scholarships. Over the last five years, Lucas raised over $7,000 to cover student fees so that all students can participate. Even with the recent loss of afterschool funded sports, Lucas connected with district administrators to gain their interest and commitment to create school teams that play one another. When asked to describe his contributions, one administrator said, “He is a teacher, educator, mentor, leader, colleague, friend, confidant, motivator, cheerleader, believer; there is no single word to describe him and there is no single statement that could qualify or quantify the impact he had, has, and will continue to have on the community. He is the reason so many students connect to school and is often the reason students push themselves to be successful academically.” 

Lucas Tucker

Thank you Coach Tucker for everything you do for our school!

SHARON MOORE-UTSTA OUTSTANDING 7TH GRADE

Our very own, Sharon Moore, received UtSTA Outstanding 7th Grade Science Teacher of the Year Award. Each year the organization recognizes exceptional and innovative science educators. The
program was created to raise awareness and exposure of the outstanding work being done in the science education field. New to Glendale, she immediately became a favorite amongst her students.

ELECTIVE CLASS HIGHLIGHT OF THE MONTH

The Glendale Buzz in Glendale Middle School’s video broadcast that is written, produced, and directed by students. Each week, the publication of the Buzz provides students with a steady stream of feedback, affirmation and ownership, while also strengthening their ability to work in a self-directed environment. In addition to building academic skills such as writing, proofreading, presenting and
speaking, students practice professional broadcast skills, such as media production and behind-the-scenes technology. And woven through all of their work are skills critical to our professional and personal lives: collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, responsibility, flexibility, and the problem-solving prowess that comes from working under pressure to produce a daily news show in a room full of people and unreliable technology. Check out the episodes on our school website.

MATHEMATICS GROWTH AT GLENDALE

MATHEMATICS GROWTH AT GLENDALE
We are pleased to announce that Glendale Middle School has the second highest growth scores in mathematics in the state among schools with similar
demographics. Last year 40% of our 8th graders met or exceeded the state benchmark in mathematics and are very prepared for their high school classes. We thank the math department for their efforts in helping every single student reach their potential in math.

Afterschool math tutoring and homework help is held every day after school.

Glendale Rising

At our annual cultural education conference, invited speakers from the Glendale community and beyond, delivered a selection of student-centered sessions, which shared knowledge and resources about recognizing and addressing implicit bias, as well as ways to find and share our unique voice as a community. The keynote speaker Dr. David Parker, engaged and delighted Glendale students and faculty with his energetic, humorous and highly relevant presentation.
Glendale Middle School would like to offer its grateful thanks to all our community partners and to the many presenters who participated in the event, in addition to our Counseling Dept; Cassie Bell, Dan Del Porto and Jerly Alcala who organized the conference.

Newsflash: Advisory Classes have begun!

What is Advisory?

To support Glendale’s school-wide goal of providing a safe, connected and caring learning environment for every student, this year we added a homeroom class (Advisory) to our schedule.

Why Advisory?

Middle school can be a challenging time. The primary purpose of our Advisory classes is to support our students to develop academically, socially, and emotionally by ensuring that they are connected and cared for members of our school community. Advisory classes are very much like small ‘families’ of students, with an advisory teacher whose role is to act as their teacher-advocate.  In addition to addressing any everyday concerns, Advisory class is also a time when teachers and students can address school-wide issues in a safe setting. Each week, students attend their Advisory classroom on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays before the school day begins. 

In September, our focus was teaching our school-wide expectations; to ensure that all students knew how to act in the classroom, cafeteria, halls, bathrooms, auditorium, and outside at recess.

More importantly, we started a school-wide conversation about what it means to be an upstander instead of a bystander. This is a particularly important skill for students to learn, to prepare them if they ever encounter difficult or unsafe situations, such as bullying and fights during and after school.  

Parents Empowered:

Here are some tips to help you continue this important conversation at home; 

bystander is—someone who witnesses bullying or unsafe situations, but doesn't get involved.

An upstander is—the person who knows what's happening is wrong and does something to make things right and just. It takes courage to speak up on someone's behalf, or to go and get help - to be an upstander instead of a bystander.

We understand that building a great school community is a long term endeavor, and we still have a long way to go; however, the students are using the terms upstander and bystander in every day conversations.

Glendale's school-wide expectations

Glendale Middle School is pleased to announce the launch of its school-wide student behavior expectations. In collaboration with our stakeholders, Principal Jill Baillie consolidated a plan to crystalize our school values into a series of beautifully designed posters which grace the hallways of Glendale.

We encourage parents and community members to read and discuss the school behavior expectations with their students.

New iPad Protocols 2019-2020

This and last year at Glendale we have implemented class sets of iPads for students to use in their core classes. This means students will no longer have to carry devices from classroom to classroom, but instead will share iPads housed in specific rooms.  To support our students to remain safe, responsible, respectful and kind, we have created a new student protocol for the shared devices. Information about these protocols can be found on the student iPad contracts which will be distributed in September, as well as in the Student iPad Expectations video
