So my niece was being bullying by the teacher ms. Vera. Yes she is a good teacher my daughter was in her class. Nothing ever happened with her bcuz I was a volunteer and was at school all the time. But with my niece was a different story. Ms vera use to poke my niece head with her nail. To the point that my niece was scared to go to school. And see the teacher.
My sister went to speak with Ms. Sovereign but like always it seem she didnt care about what was going on. She acted like she had never heard this before. So please pay attention to your kids when they came home and specially if they have ms vera as a teacher.
Report it. Go to the district.
Like? I love Ibarra Elementary!! 💚

[03/22/21]   Ibarra Families,

We are happy to announce that soon we will be able to bring your children back to school for in-person instruction. Beginning on Monday, April 12th, there will be two options for families to choose from for the remaining nine weeks of the school year.

The first option (1) is for your child to return to school for in-person learning four days each week, Monday through Thursday. School hours will be 8:40 – 2:10, with students completing one more hour of work at home after school. All safety protocols will be followed with children and adults wearing masks and remaining physically distanced throughout the day. Meals will be served and students will eat outdoors. Fridays students will work from home.

The second option (2) is for students to continue working from home five days a week. Teachers will continue to teach via zoom each morning, with children working independently in the afternoon.

Your child’s teacher will be reaching out to you in the next week to ask for your plans for the rest of this school year.

Please let your teacher know which option you choose. If we do not hear from you by the end of this week, Friday, March 26, 2021, we will assume that your child will continue learning from HOME for the rest of the year (Option 2).

There will be more details and a parent meeting to answer your questions on April 6th at 4:45 PM (Link: 82370057119). If the meantime, feel free to contact your teacher or myself.

Thank you very much!

I remain,

At your service,

SDUSD update!

NEWS RELEASE: Joint Statement from San Diego Unified, Los Angeles Unified School Districts Regarding Online Start to School Year

July 13, 2020

On March 13, four months ago today, we made the difficult decision to close our schools to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Much has changed since that time: New research is available, additional information on school safety experiences from around the world, and updated health guidelines from state and county leaders.

Unfortunately, much of the research is incomplete and many of the guidelines are vague and contradictory. One fact is clear: those countries that have managed to safely reopen schools have done so with declining infection rates and on-demand testing available. California has neither. The skyrocketing infection rates of the past few weeks make it clear the pandemic is not under control.

Therefore, we are announcing that the new school year will start online only. Instruction will resume on Aug.18 in Los Angeles Unified and Aug. 31 in San Diego Unified, as previously scheduled. Both districts will continue planning for a return to in-person learning during the 2020-21 academic year, as soon as public health conditions allow.

This announcement represents a significant disappointment for the many thousands of teachers, administrators and support staff, who were looking forward to welcoming students back in August. It is obviously an even greater disappointment to the many parents who are anxious for their students to resume their education. Most of all, this decision will impact our students in ways that researchers will take years to understand.

Our leaders owe it to all of those impacted by the COVID-19 closures to increase the pace of their work. No one should use the delay in the reopening of classrooms as a reason to relax. The coronavirus has not taken a summer vacation, as many had hoped. Indeed, the virus has accelerated its attacks on our community.

The federal government must provide schools with the resources we need to reopen in a responsible manner.

In the past four months, we have provided more than 47 million meals to families, distributed more than 250,000 computers to students and trained more than 35,000 educators in online learning. In the weeks ahead, we plan to continue this breakneck pace.

* The school year will resume on schedule.
* Teachers will receive expanded training in online education to better meet the
needs of students.
* Students will receive additional training at the start of the year to become better
online learners.
* Online supports for parents will be increased to make it easier for them to
participate in the education of their students.
* Principals will continue customized planning for the safest possible reopening
this fall.
* Free meals will continue to be provided at the current distribution stations.

On Friday, the American Academy of Pediatrics reversed course and said it was no longer confident that opening schools in the middle of a public health crisis is the best option for children. That reversal symbolizes the speed with which schools continue to receive vague and conflicting information from the medical and scientific communities. It is clear our two systems will need to create our own source for reliable scientific information.

Los Angeles Unified plans to update the community in early August. San Diego Unified will provide a public assessment on Aug.10 of how soon (after the first week of school) a physical return to class would be possible. That assessment will be based on local measures of whether the virus is sufficiently under control, as well as progress on testing and federal action on funding. On Aug.10, San Diego Unified will also outline the physical measures planned for each school to guard against the pandemic and detail the online learning program for the 2020-21 academic year.



Declaración conjunta del Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Diego
y del Distrito Escolar Unificado de Los Ángeles
sobre el comienzo del nuevo año escolar

El 13 de marzo, hoy hace cuatro meses, tomamos la difícil decisión de cerrar nuestras escuelas para prevenir la propagación del coronavirus. Mucho ha cambiado desde entonces: Ahora hay nueva investigación disponible, información adicional sobre experiencias de seguridad escolar de todo el mundo, y directrices actualizadas de salud de líderes estatales y del condado.

Desafortunadamente, mucha de la investigación no se ha completado y muchas de las directrices son vagas y contradictorias. Un hecho es claro: los países que han logrado reabrir sus escuelas con seguridad, lo han hecho con índices de infección en declive y pruebas disponibles a pedido. California no tiene ninguno de estos. Los índices de infección subiendo rápidamente en las últimas semanas han evidenciado que la pandemia no está bajo control.

Por lo tanto, anunciamos que el nuevo año escolar comenzará sólo en línea. La instrucción reanudará el 18 de agosto en al Unificado de Los Ángeles, y el 31 de agosto en el Unificado de San Diego, como estaba programado previamente. Ambos distritos continuarán planeando el regreso a clases con aprendizaje en persona durante el ciclo académico 2020-21, tan pronto como las condiciones de salud pública lo permitan.

Este anuncio representa una desilusión significativa para los muchos miles de maestros, administradores y personal de apoyo, quienes esperaban con gusto dar la bienvenida a los estudiantes en agosto. Es obviamente una desilusión aún mayor para los muchos padres que esperaban ansiosos que sus hijos reanudaran su educación. Más que nada, esta decisión afectará a nuestros estudiantes de forma que los investigadores pasarán años tratando de entender.

Nuestros líderes se comprometen ante todos los afectados por los cierres del COVID-19 a aumentar su ritmo de trabajo. Nadie debe usar el retraso de la apertura de las aulas como razón para relajarse. El coronavirus no ha tomado vacaciones de verano, como muchos esperaban. Ciertamente, el virus ha acelerado sus ataques a nuestra comunidad.

El gobierno federal deber proporcionar a las escuelas los recursos que necesitamos para reabrir de manera responsable.

En los últimos cuatro meses, hemos proporcionado más de 47 millones de alimentos para familias, distribuido más de 250,000 computadoras a los estudiantes y capacitado a más de 35,000 educadores en aprendizaje en línea. En las siguientes semanas, planeamos continuar este vertiginoso ritmo.

● El año escolar reanudará puntualmente.

● Los maestros recibirán capacitación ampliada en educación en línea para satisfacer mejor las necesidades de los estudiantes.

● Los estudiantes recibirán capacitación adicional al comenzar el año para saber aprender mejor en línea.

● Los apoyos en línea para padres serán incrementados para facilitar su participación en la educación de sus hijos.

● Los directores continuarán ajustando sus planes para la reapertura con la mayor seguridad posible este otoño.

● Los alimentos gratuitos continuarán siendo provistos en las actuales estaciones de distribución.

El viernes, la Academia Norteamericana de Pediatría se retractó y dijo que ya no pensaba que la reapertura de las escuelas en medio de una crisis de salud pública fuera la mejor opción para nuestros niños. Esa retracción simboliza cuán volátilmente las escuelas continúan recibiendo información vaga y discrepante de las comunidades médicas y científicas. Es claro que nuestros dos sistemas necesitarán crear sus propias fuentes de información científica confiable.

El Unificado de Los Ángeles planea dar información actualizada a la comunidad a principios de agosto. El Unificado de San Diego proporcionará una evaluación al público el 10 de agosto sobre qué tan pronto (después de la primera semana de clases) será posible un regreso físico a las aulas. Tal evaluación estará basada en medidas locales sobre si el virus está suficientemente bajo control, así como en el progreso de las pruebas y medidas federales de financiamiento. El 10 de agosto, el Unificado de San Diego también delineará medidas físicas planeadas para cada escuela para protegerse de la pandemia y detalles en el programa de aprendizaje en línea para el ciclo académico 2020-21.




Have a safe Fourth of July Iguanas!
