News & Announcements

5th grade promotion

Baker will be holding its 5th grade promotion on June 10th. In order to maintain our Health and Safety protocols we will be having two different promotions. For our AM cohort the promotion will be held at 9:15 am and the PM cohort will be at 1:15 pm. Each student will be allowed to have 2 quests, NO EXCEPTIONS. All guests must wear a mask at all times and stay socially distanced from other families. We will have chairs set up in pairs that will be socially distanced. At the conclusion of the promotion we ask that all families leave campus immediately.

Return of devices (Chromebooks/iPads)

Students who have a district provided device (Chromebook or iPad) will need to return the device on the last day of school, June 11th. Please be sure to bring the device and charge. The classroom teacher will be collecting all devices. It is important that we get all of them back so that we can get ready for the next school year. NOTE: If for some reason your child will not be here on the last day of school please bring it in on Thursday.

Are you moving?

As we near the end of the year we understand that some families may be moving over the summer. In order to help us plan for next year, we ask that you let us know if you are moving and will not be attending Baker next year. You can send an email to Mr. Barbara at cbarbara@moreland.org stating that you are moving. Please include your child's name and the area you will be moving to. Thanks in advance.

Students Ages 12-15 Eligible for Covid Vaccine

Children ages 12 to 15 are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations. The Santa Clara County Public Health Department recommends you get your child vaccinated as soon as possible. Youth ages 12 and older need two doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine, given 3 weeks
apart. Studies with thousands of children whose families volunteered to test the vaccine
found that it provides strong protection against COVID-19. Several federal government
agencies and panels of independent public health experts that advise the federal and state
government reviewed the studies and recommended vaccine use in 12- to 15-year-olds.
16- and 17-year-olds became eligible for vaccination a few weeks ago. If you have not yet
had a chance to get your older teen vaccinated, please don’t delay. Learn more about where you can get the vaccine here.

Response to CDC Requirements on Wearing Face Coverings

Good Afternoon Moreland Families,

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced recommendations to relax face covering guidelines for individuals fully vaccinated against COVID-19, suggesting they may be removed in most but not all indoor and outdoor settings. While this news is certainly encouraging, it’s important to remember that we are still required to comply with state and local health orders, which have not yet relaxed their requirements on face covering guidance for indoor settings or for schools. In addition, Moreland must also follow its approved Covid Safety Plan (CSP), approved by the Santa Clara County Office of Education to safely open our schools. Until that time, all of our educational facilities will continue to adhere to state and local requirements, which continue to require the use of face coverings by all individuals while on school property. We will continue to monitor the state’s guidance as they are likely to make changes in response to the CDC’s recommendations, and will keep you posted on any changes that impact school operations.
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding

Santa Clara County Health Department Advisory: Information and Resources for Travelers Arriving from India

The County of Santa Clara stands in solidarity with the Indian/Indian-American community in the Bay Area as the COVID-19 crisis continues to devastate India. The County has information and resources to support community members impacted by the crisis. The County understands that many community members have assisted family and friends by facilitating their travel to the Bay Area to ensure their safety, as well as community members who have recently returned or are returning from travel to India for business or personal reasons. To read guidance to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, protect the health of the entire community, and provide support and resources to those who have traveled recently, click here. Although the US government is restricting travel from India as of May 4, 2021, this guidance applies to those who have recently arrived from India, as well as any travelers who are exempt from the travel restriction.
