    Hello,                                                                                                                                       

    My name is Darian and I work for the Pacific County Health and Human Services Department as a Youth Program Specialist.  I’m reaching out today to see if you can help spread the word about the collaborative social media campaign between WellSpring, Road 2 Resiliency, and Pacific County Teen Advocacy Coalition (TAC).                                                                                                             

    We’re sharing ideas and activities to help identify strengths to get us through these uncertain times. Many of your students are familiar with Sources of Strength, which is what we’re basing most of our campaign on. While our main focus is on students, activities are encouraged for both youth and adults. 

    We’ll be posting on our social media pages (@pacificcountytac @WellSpring.Community.Network @Road2Resiliency on Facebook and Instagram) and asking followers to participate by sharing, liking, commenting, and/or posting photos. It would be great if you could help us out by sharing and engaging on your personal or school’s social media pages.                                                 

    Each week we’ll be choosing a winner by random draw. To enter, followers just need to interact with us (as mentioned above). Each interaction is an additional entry.

    This week is Spirit Week! Please feel free to share the attached flyer with your students. Additional campaign information and activities for download are available on the TAC’s website. If I can help in any way, please let me know.                                                   

    Respectfully,                                                                                                                                                                                                               Darian Johnson|Youth Program Specialist

    Hello to our Fisherman Family:  
     
    I hope this note finds you and yours well.  As we navigate our way through these strange times, please keep yourselves, your families, and your friends and loved ones safe.  
    The best ways to do this, as you know, are to:
    -  WASH YOUR HANDS thoroughly, frequently, and with soap & water (20 seconds)
    -  PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING ... That's why we're out of school
    -  AVOID TOUCHING YOUR FACE
    -  STAY CONNECTED virtually, electronically, and by phone  
    -  STAY HOME when you're sick
    -  WE CARE ABOUT EVERYONE OF YOU!
        -  We intend to:
        -  Put our students first
        -  Take care of our students, their families, and ourselves to the best of our ability     
     
    A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THE ONLINE, or PAPER, WORK COMING YOUR WAY:
     
    -  Please be aware that starting on Monday, March 30th the work that is coming to your student(s) via their student email accounts, Google Classroom or, in some cases by paper, IS REQUIRED (and should be very doable)
     
    -  As directed by the state, we are sending work designed to help all of our students meet the standards for each of their subjects, keep them thinking and learning, and give them the opportunity to PASS THEIR CLASSES in order to earn the credits so as not to fall behind (Freshmen, Sophomores, & Juniors) and/or to GET THEM TO GRADUATION (Seniors).  
     
    -  If you have NOT been contacted, please contact the school) 360) 642-3731 and leave a message.
    -  If you have needs that we can help you with (food, Chromebook, requesting that paper copies of the work be sent home, and more) please do not hesitate to contact us at (360) 642-3731 (and leave a message).  We will get back to you.
     
    -  Our goals include getting seniors to graduation and to keep our underclassmen on track to graduate while at the same time meeting basic needs (where necessary) and helping everyone (students, staff, parents/guardians) to get through this closure with their physical and mental health intact, with minimal academic loss, and with peace and happiness in their hearts.
     
    And, to reach these goals, WE NEED YOUR HELP!  We can't do it alone.
    -  Parents, please encourage, expect your student(s) to engage fully with the work and get everything turned in
    -  Students, take advantage of the opportunity you have.  Get engaged, reach out to your teachers if you need help, do the work, turn it in, and move on to graduation (Seniors) or to getting/remaining on-track to graduate (Juniors, Sophomores, & Freshmen).
     
    This is a difficult time for all of us!  We understand and we will all work together to help one another successfully navigate this closure, stay healthy physically and mentally, navigate the academic piece, keep hope alive and, know that  WE CARE ABOUT EACH OF YOU!
     
    Parents and/or Students, lease reach out to us if we can help in any way!
    -  (360) 642-3731 (and leave a message)
     
    Together, we will get through this and come out stronger for having done so,
    DT

    Hi All,
     
    I want to clarify something that slipped by me yesterday when I sent out the newest edition of A Week at the Beach ...
     
    Spring Break is NOT from April 6 - April 24!  I apologize for any confusion. Instead, Spring Break is designated as follows ...
     
    FOR STAFF:
    Wednesday, April 8
    Thursday, April 9
    Friday, April 10
    Thursday, April 16 and ...
    Thursday, April 23
    And, remember, that Staff are working Monday - Thursday most weeks with Friday off to make up for the extra week (June 15 - 19) should we return to school
     
    FOR STUDENTS:
    The district is looking at the first week that students had off, technically, as their early Spring Break. ... This was the week of March 16 - 20!
     
    What is the WHY behind these dates?
    -  By breaking the staff spring break up like this
    -  Students will have help and services each week now that we have started providing work that counts for a student to pass their classes and/or, get to graduation (for seniors).
     
    So please, students (and parents), know that ... we WILL be sending work out next week (April 6 - 10) that you will be expected to complete 
    -  In order to maintain passing grades (so you don't fall behind), 
    -  Earn your credits (so underclassmen stay on track to graduate) and ...
    -  Get to graduation (for seniors).   
     
    Please, if you have any questions call the school at (360) 642-3731 or contact High School Principal, David Tobin by email at ... david.tobin@oceanbeachschools.org
     
    Stay safe and Be well,
    DT

     IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING OCEAN BEACH SCHOOL DISTRICT’S PROCESS IN THE EVENT OF POWER OUTAGES:

    Our top priority is to ensure the safety of all students. In the event of a power outage at one or more of our schools, the district will communicate directly with the PUD to determine the source of the outage and the estimated time until power will be restored. That information isn’t always immediately available, which can make it difficult to decide whether to wait or send students home. That being said, if we determine that it will be longer than one hour before power will be restored, please know that we will be sending students home. We are not able to keep the buildings warm enough or provide enough lighting for it to be safe to keep students beyond an hour. This information will be posted on our district website as soon as a decision is made, along with district Facebook pages and Flash Alert. Our buildings will also do their best to post the information, but many times they won’t have access to phones or internet during a power outage.
