Estimadas Familias de CAP,

 

Estoy muy orgullosa del trabajo que nuestros maestros y estudiantes han estado haciendo este año escolar durante este tiempo tumultuoso. Los maestros pasaron los meses de verano planeando esta nueva normalidad y trabajan duro todos los días para satisfacer las necesidades de sus hijos. He estado especialmente orgullosa de que en el primer semestre, hemos tenido estudiantes de educación especial, estudiantes de inglés, jardín de infantes, primeros y segundos grados, días de la comunidad y cualquier otro estudiante que pidió venir a la escuela todos los días o híbridos. Nuestra facultad ha estado entrando a la escuela todos los días para enseñar a sus hijos con todos los recursos que necesitaban para tener éxito en la enseñanza de sus hijos.

 

Es con gran tristeza que a partir de ahora, no podemos seguir haciendo que los estudiantes entren temporalmente en el edificio debido a la alta tasa de positividad en el condado de Filadelfia. El Departamento de Salud Pública de Filadelfia ha recomendado el cierre para los estudiantes hasta que la tasa de positividad baje de nuevo. A partir de ahora, la tasa de positividad en Filadelfia es de alrededor del 9%, que está etiquetado, un nivel "sustancial" para la transmisión comunitaria. CAP reabrirá a un horario híbrido el 19 de enero. Después del Año Nuevo se proporcionarán encuestas sobre las decisiones familiares relativas a la preferencia por el aprendizaje híbrido o virtual.

 

Los grados 2 a 12 serán virtuales completos a partir del lunes 9 de noviembre.

Kindergarten y primeros grados harán recogidas de material para estudiantes virtuales el lunes y Martes, 12:30 – 2:00 PM

Los estudiantes híbridos de kínder el último día serán Blue Group: lunes, 9 de noviembre y oro Grupo: Jueves 12 de noviembre

Los estudiantes híbridos de primer grado el último día serán Blue Group: lunes, 9 de noviembre y oro Grupo: Martes 10 de noviembre

Los estudiantes híbridos del complejo de Educación Especial irán completamente virtuales el miércoles, 11 de noviembre.

Los estudiantes híbridos de Inglés 11.

Los Días de la Comunidad ya no continuarán hasta nuevo aviso.

Los estudiantes crepusculares harán todo el trabajo restante virtualmente.

 

Es importante tener en cuenta que Lintons seguirá dando comidas en el Lote B de 10 a 2 PM todos los martes y jueves.

 

El rasgo del orgullo de Bruin en octubre fue RESPETO y para noviembre es INTEGRIDAD. Los temas actuales de nuestra nación nos han impactado a cada uno de nosotros en diferentes niveles. Una pandemia mundial de salud, un malestar social y una división política han abierto la puerta al malestar y al descontento.  Como comunidad escolar, es importante, ahora más que nunca, liderar con RESPETO, empatía y aceptación.  Las diferencias no deben apartarnos, sino que debemos esforzarnos por aprender más unos de otros para que podamos ayudarnos unos a otros a alcanzar al más alto nivel, juntos.  Nuestros consejeros aún pueden ser contactados. Consulte el sitio web para obtener más información.

 

Por favor, tenga cuidado,

Department of Human Services Warns Pennsylvanians of Potential Scam Involving Pandemic EBT Benefits

Harrisburg, PA – The Department of Human Services (DHS) is warning of a possible scam concerning Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits and reminding Pennsylvanians to be skeptical of unsolicited or random calls or text messages about public-assistance programs – especially when the calls or text messages solicit personal information, such as Social Security numbers.

“We are all living through difficult times, and unfortunately, there are people who will try to take advantage of others who may need help meeting essential needs. Be mindful, stay aware, and if you think something looks off, it probably is,” DHS Secretary Teresa Miller said.

DHS is investigating a report of individuals receiving calls with pre-recorded messages advising them to expedite their P-EBT benefits issuance by providing their Social Security number and case record number. In the message, the speaker claims to be from a County Assistance Office (CAO).

DHS and other government agencies do not ask for information about P-EBT, SNAP, or any other public-assistance programs via unsolicited or random calls or texts, and Pennsylvanians should not reply to such a call or text or share any personal information if they are contacted in this way. If you or anyone you work with receive unsolicited or random calls or text messages telling you that you qualify for assistance and then asking for personal information, it is most likely a scam. Do not respond. Delete the message so you do not get caught in an identity theft scam.

Pennsylvanians who have questions about whether a call, text, letter, or other communication is legitimate should contact DHS’s Office of Income Maintenance. Clients in Philadelphia should call the Philadelphia Customer Service Center at 215-560-7226. Clients in all other counties can call the Statewide Customer Service Center at 1-877-395-8930.

The federal government authorized P-EBT in the spring to allow states to assist families with school-age children who qualified for free-and-reduced price meals through the National School Lunch Program – and who lost their easy access to breakfast and lunch at school as a result of the school closures related to COVID-19 earlier this year.

DHS began distributing P-EBT benefits to Pennsylvania families in late May. To date, more than $360 million has been distributed to about 680,000 households to help families feed nearly 1 million children.  Families received about $370 per child.

DHS administered this program in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Education and schools across the commonwealth. The program was recently reauthorized by the federal government for the 2020-2021 school year. Pennsylvania and other states are currently awaiting guidance from the United States Department of Agriculture to begin the program for the current school year.

Additional information about Pennsylvania's P-EBT can be found here

If Pennsylvanians need help purchasing or affording food for themselves and their families, help may also be available through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP helps nearly 1.9 million Pennsylvanians by providing assistance each month for groceries, helping households purchase enough food to avoid going hungry. SNAP is our country’s most important and most impactful anti-hunger program. For every meal provided by a Feeding Pennsylvania food bank, SNAP provides nine. While SNAP is intended to be a supplemental program, during a pandemic and historic unemployment, resources are strained, particularly for our lowest-income Pennsylvanians.

Applications for the SNAP and other public assistance programs can be submitted online at www.compass.state.pa.us. All Pennsylvanians experiencing financial hardships due to the pandemic, a lost job, or a change in income are strongly encouraged to apply and see if they qualify for assistance with food, health care, and other essential needs.

For more information about food assistance resources for people around Pennsylvania impacted by COVID-19 and the accompanying economic insecurity, visit the Department of Agriculture’s food security guide.

Dear Families of CAP,

 

I am very proud of the work our teachers and students have been doing this school year during this tumultuous time.  The teachers spent the summer months planning for this new normal and work hard every day to meet the needs of your children.  I have been especially proud that in the first semester, we have had special education students, English Language Learners, kindergarten, first and second grades, Community Days, and any other students that asked to come into school daily or hybrid.  Our faculty has been coming into school each day to teach your children with all of the resources they needed to be successful in teaching your children.

 

It is with great sadness that as of now, we cannot continue to have students come into the building temporarily due to the high positivity rate in Philadelphia county.   The Philadelphia Department of Public Health has recommended closure for students until the positivity rate drops again.  As of right now, the positivity rate in Philadelphia is about 9%, which is labeled, a “substantial” level for community transmission.  CAP will reopen to a hybrid schedule on January 19th.  Surveys about family decisions regarding preference for hybrid or virtual learning will be provided after the New Year.  

 

Grades 2 through 12 will be full virtual beginning Monday, November 9.

Kindergarten and first grades will do material pick-ups for virtual students on Monday and

                  Tuesday, 12:30 – 2:00 PM

Kindergarten hybrid students last day will be Blue Group: Monday, November 9, and Gold 

Group: Thursday, November 12th

First-grade hybrid students last day will be Blue Group: Monday, November 9, and Gold 

Group: Tuesday, November 10th

Special Education complex need hybrid students will go fully virtual Wednesday,

November 11.

English Language Learners hybrid students will begin virtual learning on Wednesday, November

11.

Community Days will no longer continue until further notice.

Twilight students will do all remaining work virtually.

 

It is important to note that Lintons will still be giving out meals in Lot B from 10 – 2 PM every Tuesday and Thursday.

 

The Bruin Pride Trait in October was RESPECT and for November is INTEGRITY.  The current issues of our nation have impacted each one of us on different levels. A global health pandemic, social unrest, and political division have opened the door for unease and discontent.  As a school community, it is important, now more than ever, to lead with RESPECT, empathy, and acceptance.  Differences should not drive us apart, rather we should strive to learn more about each other so that we can help one another achieve at the highest levels, together.  Our counselors can still be reached.  Check out the website for more information.

 

Please take care,

Dr. Alberta P. O’Brien

Chief Executive Officer
