Week of February 28, 2022

Finney will celebrate National Read Across America day on March 2nd. Here are some tips for parents for reading to your children. Reading to and with your children throughout elementary school is one of the best ways to support them as readers.

Please join us for our next Coffee Chat/ELAC Meeting this Friday, March 4 at 8:30 via Teams.

Weekly testing at Finney helps us slow the spread of Covid-19. It also removes the burden from you to take your children to get tested after every exposure and will fill the weekly testing requirement for sports team participation. You can sign your child up for Tuesday testing at school.covidclinic.org. For questions about testing, contact k12@covidclinic.org. Those who have had Covid-19 within the past 90 days should not test with Covid Clinic.

When a student in your child’s classroom or group tests positive, all the parents of exposed students receive an exposure letter. Exposed students do NOT need to stay home unless they have symptoms or test positive. Exposed students need to test on day 3, 4, or 5. Any test is acceptable and results must be reported to the district via this form: https://forms.office.com/r/uzEF13QrRE.

Chula Vista Community Collaborative’s Family Resource Centers can help with Medi-Cal, Covered California, Mental Health Services, assistance with filling out forms, Domestic Violence, and more. This FREE help in English & Spanish is available at Resource Centers located on CVESD school campuses. The closest FRC to Finney is Rayo de Esperanza at Otay Elementary. Visit the website or call 619-425-4458.
