Dear Box Springs Families,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I hope you and your family are safe and healthy.
I know you are curious and have questions as we address schools and COVID19. I want to assure you Box Springs Elementary will do EVERYTHING we can to give our children positive experiences. Along with all schools in the Moreno Valley Unified School District, we will begin the year with distance learning beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.
Throughout the year, please know your questions will be addressed and you will be well informed on your child’s progress and other related concerns. In addition to telephone calls and written notices, we will communicate with you using two media based platforms (Class Dojo & Q Communications). More information on Class Dojo and Q Communications will be shared under a separate notice. Please note, both platforms will have very informative information that you will find helpful.
Addressing your curiosity on distance learning and the format for the instructional day, it is important to know the Governor has given strict guidelines on the number of “instructional minutes” a student must have each day. Currently, kindergarten students have a requirement of 180 minutes, 1st-3rd grade 230 minutes, and 4th-6th grade 240 minutes. Please note these are daily minutes and requirements within those minutes will be shared with you at a later time.
I know your curiosity and questions will continue and as always, please feel free to email me at [email protected] or call me at (951) 571-4530. I’ll do the best I can to address your concerns. Within the next few weeks, we will share a lot of information. For this notice, I wanted to welcome you and let you know that everyone at “Box” look forward to working with you and our children.
Again, if you have any questions, please contact me.
Gregory White, Principal
