Dear Parents of 8th Grade Students,

 

This year, Harper Junior High School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on March 7, 2019. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. NAEP is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the US Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it is a common measure of achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.

 

Your child may take an assessment in reading, mathematics, or science. You will receive a letter in the mail if your child has been randomly selected. The assessment will take about 120 minutes for most students, including transition time and directions. The information collected is used for statistical purposes only:

  • Your child’s grades will not be affected.
  • Students may be excused for any reason, are not required to complete the assessment, and may skip any question.
  • While the assessment is voluntary, NAEP depends on student participation to help policymakers improve educations.

 

Thank you for your support. Please feel free to contact Adrianne Simon-Carlson at asimon@djusd.net if your child has been selected and you have questions.

The 2018 Adopt A Family Program-Update

 

   Thank you so much to the many of you who have offered to “adopt” a Harper family or child during this holiday season.   At this point the only thing left that we could still use to help these efforts would be gift cards to local grocery stores or Target.  Please bring them to the office, labeled “Adopt A Family”, with your names on them,  so we know who to thank.  Each card will go to our identified students in need.  All donations need to be in the office between Monday, the 17th and Wednesday, December 19th.

Thought for Today:  Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized. ~ Albert Einstein

 

On This Day in History: 1942 Pearl Harbor was bombed in a surprise attack.

At 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time, a Japanese dive bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault. The surprise attack struck a critical blow against the U.S. Pacific fleet and drew the United States irrevocably into World War II.

1884, in Washington, D.C., workers place a nine-inch aluminum pyramid atop a tower of white marble, completing the construction of an impressive monument to the city’s namesake and the nation’s first president, George Washington.

   Thank you so much to the many of you who have offered to “adopt” a Harper family or child during this holiday season.   At this point the only thing left that we could still use to help these efforts would be gift cards to local grocery stores or Target.  Please bring them to the office, labeled “Adopt A Family”, with your names on them,  so we know who to thank.  Each card will go to our identified students in need.  All donations need to be in the office between Monday, the 17th and Wednesday, December 19th.

Adopt a Child or Family

2018

The holidays are almost upon us, and although we have much to be thankful for, we cannot forget the significant needs of so many families and children in our Harper community. This year, we have identified many Harper families, or individual students, who can really use our help. We have families that range from just one child to five school age children, including some children who are homeless or living in Shelters.

 

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

 

Please let Ms. Kerin Kelleher or Ms. Liza Lopez know, through email or a phone call, as soon as possible, if you would like to participate as a donor in one of the options listed below:

1.     Adopt-a-Family:  Provide the entire family with some food, basic household items and gifts.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)

2.     Adopt-a-Child: Collect gifts, clothing, and/or money that could be used to purchase gifts/clothing for just one child.  (Food and household items will not be needed.)

3.     Adopt-a-Family with another group:  example, two or more families might join together to adopt a single family.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)

4.     Collect food or household items to be donated to a local family or the local food bank. (These items could be organized into a gift basket to be given to a family.)

5.     Donate a gift card from Save Mart, Target, Safeway or Walmart, or? 

 

 

If you choose to participate, items will need to be brought to Harper between Nov. 26, 2018 – Dec. 10, 2018.   Please bring gifts wrapped and labeled.   Our goal is to collect all contributions and deliver them by Friday, December 14, 2018.

 

If you elect to “Adopt- a Family,” will provide you with a description of the family, without naming names, and a list of suggestions.  Please email Kerin Kelleher and Liza Lopez to let us know that you are interested. 

Thank you so much for your consideration!

Adopt a Child or Family

2018

The holidays are almost upon us, and although we have much to be thankful for, we cannot forget the significant needs of so many families and children in our Harper community. This year, we have identified many Harper families, or individual students, who can really use our help. We have families that range from just one child to five school age children, including some children who are homeless or living in Shelters.

 

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

 

Please let Ms. Kerin Kelleher or Ms. Liza Lopez know, through email or a phone call, as soon as possible, if you would like to participate as a donor in one of the options listed below:

  1. Adopt-a-Family:  Provide the entire family with some food, basic household items and gifts.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  2. Adopt-a-Child: Collect gifts, clothing, and/or money that could be used to purchase gifts/clothing for just one child.  (Food and household items will not be needed.)
  3. Adopt-a-Family with another group:  example, two or more families might join together to adopt a single family.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  4. Collect food or household items to be donated to a local family or the local food bank. (These items could be organized into a gift basket to be given to a family.)
  5. Donate a gift card from Save Mart, Target, Safeway or Walmart, or? 

 

 

If you choose to participate, items will need to be brought to Harper between Nov. 26, 2018 – Dec. 10, 2018.   Please bring gifts wrapped and labeled.   Our goal is to collect all contributions and deliver them by Friday, December 14, 2018.

 

If you elect to “Adopt- a Family,” will provide you with a description of the family, without naming names, and a list of suggestions.  Please email Kerin Kelleher and Liza Lopez to let us know that you are interested. 

Thank you so much for your consideration!

Due to to worsening air quality, and out of an abundance of caution, Davis Joint Unified School District, along with all other school districts in Yolo County, is closing all schools and offices on Friday, November 16. 

Over the last few days, DJUSD has been regularly monitoring worsening the air quality and conferring with the Yolo County Office of Education, Yolo County Health Department and the Yolo/Solano Air Quality Management District. The decision to close schools due to air quality is not taken lightly and is unprecedented. Our top priority is the health and safety of our students and staff. 

We anticipate the conditions to improve significantly over the next week and look forward to a return to normal school routines, outdoor activities and athletics after Thanksgiving Break. Any updates over Thanksgiving Break will be shared as quickly as possible with our school community by email and available here on the DJUSD website as well as on DJUSD Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you for your partnership and understanding.

Adopt a Child or Family

2018

The holidays are almost upon us, and although we have much to be thankful for, we cannot forget the significant needs of so many families and children in our Harper community. This year, we have identified many Harper families, or individual students, who can really use our help. We have families that range from just one child to five school age children, including some children who are homeless or living in Shelters.

 

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

 

Please let Ms. Kerin Kelleher or Ms. Liza Lopez know, through email or a phone call, as soon as possible, if you would like to participate as a donor in one of the options listed below:

  1. Adopt-a-Family:  Provide the entire family with some food, basic household items and gifts.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  2. Adopt-a-Child: Collect gifts, clothing, and/or money that could be used to purchase gifts/clothing for just one child.  (Food and household items will not be needed.)
  3. Adopt-a-Family with another group:  example, two or more families might join together to adopt a single family.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  4. Collect food or household items to be donated to a local family or the local food bank. (These items could be organized into a gift basket to be given to a family.)
  5. Donate a gift card from Save Mart, Target, Safeway or Walmart, or? 

 

 

If you choose to participate, items will need to be brought to Harper between Nov. 26, 2018 – Dec. 10, 2018.   Please bring gifts wrapped and labeled.   Our goal is to collect all contributions and deliver them by Friday, December 14, 2018.

 

If you elect to “Adopt- a Family,” will provide you with a description of the family, without naming names, and a list of suggestions.  Please email Kerin Kelleher and Liza Lopez to let us know that you are interested. 

Thank you so much for your consideration!

Vaping on the rise in junior high and high school students

“Vaping” or “juuling” are terms that refer to the use of any electronic vaporizer, such as e-cigs, vapes, vape pens, Juuls, and e-hookahs. The devices can be discreetly hidden in clothing and are often mistaken for a flash drive as they charge in a computer USB port. The term vaping can incorrectly lead people to believe that these devices produce a harmless water vapor, but in reality, they produce potentially harmful aerosols that are inhaled into the lungs and exhaled into the environment. The added flavorings (e-juice) are made of glycerol and propylene glycol which, generally regarded as safe for ingestion, when heated can break down into toxic compounds such as formaldehyde. The liquid e-juice is often a medium for inhaled nicotine and/or cannabis. One Juul cartridge (about the size of a dime) contains the same amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides information on vaping, including Talk with Your Teen About E-cigarettes: A Tip Sheet for Parents.

Air Quality Update: Schools Remain Open Thursday, November 15


The air quality forecast in our region continues to predict poor air quality levels for the remainder of the week. 

Davis schools will remain open and the restrictions on all outdoor activities will remain throughout the week so as to limit exposure to poor air quality. 
 

  • Restrictions on outside activities continue:
    All students shall remain indoors - this includes recess, lunch period and physical education class.
  • Doors to classrooms will be kept closed to limit exposure to poor air quality.
  • Outside activities, field trips and sports are suspended until further notice.
  • All athletic programs through Davis Senior High School have been postponed or moved indoors. Keep updated on athletics at Davis Senior High Athletics. 

Parents are advised to contact their school office directly for the latest information regarding school-specific plans about physical education classes, lunch schedules, or other questions and concerns. 

DJUSD continues to monitor the Air Quality Index (AQI) and will keep our school community updated with any changes. We recognize that individuals may have questions about their individual student or personal needs and these can be directed to school offices or the Public Information Office at communications@djusd.net.
 

Frequently Asked Questions:



How are decisions made to cancel school?
DJUSD is carefully monitoring the air quality reports and forecasts. Staff continues to consult and confer with Yolo County Office of Education, Yolo County Health Department and the Yolo/Solano Air Quality Management District (Y/S AQMD) to help inform decisions about whether schools will remain open. 

DJUSD is using the guidance from EPA Air Quality Guide for Particulate Pollution (image below) and Yolo/ Solano Air Quality Management District to determine what activities are safe for students and staff to do during the course of the day. We have imposed restrictions and are limiting activities based on the guidelines.

It is important to note that DJUSD has taken an even more precautionary approach by restricting all outdoor activities, even further than the EPA guidance provides given air quality levels this week, so as to limit outdoor exposure during the school day as much as possible. 



If my child stays home because of air quality, is this an excused absence?
Yes. If you report an absence because of health concerns related to air quality, it will be counted as an excused absence.

Do classrooms and school buildings have filters in air systems to block smoke? 
We have filtrations systems on all HVAC systems throughout the District that filter particulates down to three microns in size. 

What if my child has asthma or doesn’t feel well?
Students and staff who have asthma or other health concerns should consult with their health care provider. If students become ill at school they should report to the school nurse or office and a parent will be contacted.

Are there plans to cancel school later this week, since the air quality forecast does not suggest improvements in the next couple of days?
DJUSD is carefully monitoring the air quality reports and forecasts. Staff continues to consult and confer with Yolo County Office of Education, Yolo County Health Department and the Yolo/Solano Air Quality Management District to help inform decisions about whether schools will remain open. We will let our school community know of any updates or changes.

Dear DJUSD Parents and Guardians,

 

We continue to experience smoky conditions in Davis from the ash blown from the Camp Fire in Butte County.  Throughout this weekend and all through today we have been monitoring the Air Quality Index (AQI) as it has changed.  Today all DJUSD students remained indoors for lunch and physical education class, and doors to classrooms were kept closed to limit exposure to poor air quality.  Forecasts suggest that while winds may cause fluctuations in particulate matter, the air quality will likely remain unhealthy for several days.

 

All schools in DJUSD will remain open tomorrow; we will continue to monitor the air quality index to ensure safety of students and staff throughout the week.

 

DJUSD, in consultation with the Yolo County of Education and Yolo Health Department, recognizes the  EPA and Yolo Solano Air Quality Management District (YSAQMD) guidelines available at EPA Air Quality Guide for Particulate Pollution. It is important to note that DJUSD has taken an even more precautionary approach by restricting all outdoor activities, even further than the guidance provides, so as to limit outdoor exposure during the school day as much as possible.

 

Please know that DJUSD staff at every school site are working hard to monitor student needs and to put student health and safety first.  Considerations to protect children and sensitive groups from smoke, ash and poor air quality include:

  • Keeping children indoors with the doors and windows closed.

  • Suspending athletics and any outdoor school activities during or after school.

  • Monitoring students with medical conditions. Students with asthma, allergies, or a chronic health condition are at high risk from health effects related to wildfire smoke and ash.  Please consult your physician if you have concerns.

 

If you have concerns for your child’s health or they have medical conditions that may be aggravated by poor air quality, please keep your child home or contact your school office.

 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact your school office.

Vaping on the rise in junior high and high school students

“Vaping” or “juuling” are terms that refer to the use of any electronic vaporizer, such as e-cigs, vapes, vape pens, Juuls, and e-hookahs. The devices can be discreetly hidden in clothing and are often mistaken for a flash drive as they charge in a computer USB port. The term vaping can incorrectly lead people to believe that these devices produce a harmless water vapor, but in reality, they produce potentially harmful aerosols that are inhaled into the lungs and exhaled into the environment. The added flavorings (e-juice) are made of glycerol and propylene glycol which, generally regarded as safe for ingestion, when heated can break down into toxic compounds such as formaldehyde. The liquid e-juice is often a medium for inhaled nicotine and/or cannabis. One Juul cartridge (about the size of a dime) contains the same amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides information on vaping, including Talk with Your Teen About E-cigarettes: A Tip Sheet for Parents.

Adopt a Child or Family

2018

The holidays are almost upon us, and although we have much to be thankful for, we cannot forget the significant needs of so many families and children in our Harper community. This year, we have identified many Harper families, or individual students, who can really use our help. We have families that range from just one child to five school age children, including some children who are homeless or living in Shelters.

 

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

 

Please let Ms. Kerin Kelleher or Ms. Liza Lopez know, through email or a phone call, as soon as possible, if you would like to participate as a donor in one of the options listed below:

  1. Adopt-a-Family:  Provide the entire family with some food, basic household items and gifts.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  2. Adopt-a-Child: Collect gifts, clothing, and/or money that could be used to purchase gifts/clothing for just one child.  (Food and household items will not be needed.)
  3. Adopt-a-Family with another group:  example, two or more families might join together to adopt a single family.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  4. Collect food or household items to be donated to a local family or the local food bank. (These items could be organized into a gift basket to be given to a family.)
  5. Donate a gift card from Save Mart, Target, Safeway or Walmart, or? 

 

 

If you choose to participate, items will need to be brought to Harper between Nov. 26, 2018 – Dec. 10, 2018.   Please bring gifts wrapped and labeled.   Our goal is to collect all contributions and deliver them by Friday, December 14, 2018.

 

If you elect to “Adopt- a Family,” will provide you with a description of the family, without naming names, and a list of suggestions.  Please email Kerin Kelleher and Liza Lopez to let us know that you are interested. 

Thank you so much for your consideration!

Dear DJUSD Families,

 

On this Veterans Day as we honor the many men and women who serve our country in the U.S. Military, we also recognize the heroic efforts of countless firefighters as well as the tireless efforts of many dedicated citizens in our community who are working to support the victims of the wildfires raging in our region as well as in the southern part of our state. Many in our school community have friends and loved ones who have been affected by the devastation.  DJUSD is partnering with the Davis Police Department to support relief efforts; the DJUSD District Office at 526 B Street will be a drop off point for supplies and donations for fire victims this week.

 

Air Quality in Davis

The fires also sending smoke and ash causing very poor air quality in and around our community.  While school will continue as scheduled, school administrators and staff will be monitoring the local Air Quality Index (AQI) regularly to determine safe levels of student activity each day.  In general, the next two days are predicted to be unhealthy for all groups, and so we anticipate the following protocols for schools:

  • All outside activity will be cancelled or moved indoors until air quality improves

  • After school athletic practices and games at our junior high schools and Davis Senior High will be rescheduled or moved inside

  • During the school day, classroom doors will remain closed to ensure safe air quality

 

Reminders for Parents

Thank you for your patience as we navigate the air quality and make decisions to keep student health our priority.  We also recognize that many students may choose not to commute to school by bike or on foot, so there may be more vehicle traffic at drop off or pick up.  Please plan your schedule accordingly.

 

Finally, if your student has allergies, asthma, or other medical conditions that are aggravated by the poor air quality, please be sure to contact your school office so our staff can help to monitor student health and well-being.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your school office.

It debuted as part of an Armistice Day radio special on November 10, the day before Veterans Day.

Adopt a Child or Family

2018

The holidays are almost upon us, and although we have much to be thankful for, we cannot forget the significant needs of so many families and children in our Harper community. This year, we have identified many Harper families, or individual students, who can really use our help. We have families that range from just one child to five school age children, including some children who are homeless or living in Shelters.

 

For the past many years we have been blessed to have numerous classrooms and Harper families, “Adopt a Family” or “Adopt an Individual Child”.    This year we are once again seeking individuals or families, or classrooms, to once again, “Adopt a Family.” With this in mind, we are also considering a number of different ways you may assist or get involved.

 

THIS IS VERY OPTIONAL !!!

 

Please let Ms. Kerin Kelleher or Ms. Liza Lopez know, through email or a phone call, as soon as possible, if you would like to participate as a donor in one of the options listed below:

  1. Adopt-a-Family:  Provide the entire family with some food, basic household items and gifts.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  2. Adopt-a-Child: Collect gifts, clothing, and/or money that could be used to purchase gifts/clothing for just one child.  (Food and household items will not be needed.)
  3. Adopt-a-Family with another group:  example, two or more families might join together to adopt a single family.  (We will provide the sizes and a general list of needed food items.)
  4. Collect food or household items to be donated to a local family or the local food bank. (These items could be organized into a gift basket to be given to a family.)
  5. Donate a gift card from Save Mart, Target, Safeway or Walmart, or? 

 

 

If you choose to participate, items will need to be brought to Harper between Nov. 26, 2018 – Dec. 10, 2018.   Please bring gifts wrapped and labeled.   Our goal is to collect all contributions and deliver them by Friday, December 14, 2018.

 

If you elect to “Adopt- a Family,” will provide you with a description of the family, without naming names, and a list of suggestions.  Please email Kerin Kelleher and Liza Lopez to let us know that you are interested. 

Thank you so much for your consideration!

Vaping on the rise in junior high and high school students

“Vaping” or “juuling” are terms that refer to the use of any electronic vaporizer, such as e-cigs, vapes, vape pens, Juuls, and e-hookahs. The devices can be discreetly hidden in clothing and are often mistaken for a flash drive as they charge in a computer USB port. The term vaping can incorrectly lead people to believe that these devices produce a harmless water vapor, but in reality, they produce potentially harmful aerosols that are inhaled into the lungs and exhaled into the environment. The added flavorings (e-juice) are made of glycerol and propylene glycol which, generally regarded as safe for ingestion, when heated can break down into toxic compounds such as formaldehyde. The liquid e-juice is often a medium for inhaled nicotine and/or cannabis. One Juul cartridge (about the size of a dime) contains the same amount of nicotine as a pack of cigarettes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides information on vaping, including Talk with Your Teen About E-cigarettes: A Tip Sheet for Parents.

FDR remains the only president to have served more than two terms. Roosevelt rose above personal and political challenges to emerge as one of the nation’s most revered and influential presidents.

STUDENT NEWS:

 

Did you know…. Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

November 11th is a special day to honor the men and women who serve our country so that we can enjoy freedom every day. In addition, behind each of those Veterans, there is a family who sacrifices a lot while their loved one serve their country. Veterans Day is important because of the precious freedoms that we take for granted every day. Saying "thank you" to a person in the military is a very small price for our glorious freedom.
