Estimadas familias,

Hoy les enviaremos otras 4 semanas de recursos de aprendizaje modificados.  Por favor, informe a su maestra o supervisora de su centro si no los recibe antes del final de la semana.

He agregado estas actividades de aprendizaje a nuestra página web de Recursos de Aprendizaje Modificado y también he incluido algunos sitios web que pueden ser útiles.

Como siempre, si necesita ayuda para acceder a los recursos de la comunidad, déjele saber su maestra o supervisora del centro.  Si no puede conectarse con ellos, por favor déjenos un mensaje al 707-462-2582.

Estamos aquí para continuar apoyando a su hijo y a su familia.  Gracias por su continuo apoyo y comprensión mientras navegamos juntos por esta emergencia de salud.

Por favor, manténganse seguros y espero se encuentren bien.
