Dear Taft students and Families,

The 2020-2021 school year has brought many changes and challenges on our community, students, families and staff.  The wild fires and pandemic have made this school year stressful and full of anxiety.  I would like to thank all of our families, staff and students for your patience as we endure through these trying times.  Taft is working to establish some normalcy into the year by continuing to work with our students each day to meet their social, emotional, and educational needs.  On the website you will be able to find multiple resources for food, clothing, shelter, mental health, and staff support.  Taft is here to support our families and will do their best to assist families in anyway they can.

Taft is headed into the winter months of the 2020-2021 school year.  As of December 18th, 2020 Taft will be continuing with Comprehensive Distance Learning(CDL) for all students until January 28th.  Students will be asked to follow their schedules for CDL and join our teachers each day for their virtual meetings.  Each week, Wednesdays are set aside to be a break in the week from the virtual meetings.  We still require students to complete work and communicate with teachers on Wednesday in order to count present on attendance.  On Wednesday’s teachers will be holding office hours from 8:30 to 10:00, please contact your teacher for a meeting link.  If you have questions about attendance or the structure of the school day please communicate with the office at Taft for more details.

Have a wonderful winter break…School will return to session on January 4th, 2021.
