If you do not have access to a recorder at home, we are making the school recorders available to check out when you pick up your other assignments at Manzanita. Please take good care of the school instruments. I will be checking the Flipgrid while we are not at school to see which belts I can award when we meet again.

    Dear Manzanita Families:
    The health and safety of our students and staff are a top priority, and we understand the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing concern for many of our parents.  At this time, there have been zero reported cases in Butte County, but our school district is taking precautions to prevent the spread of all infectious diseases. 
    We have instructed our custodial staff to place additional attention on disinfecting high contact areas like door handles, tabletops, desks, counters, equipment, and faucets in accordance with CDC guidelines.
    We are asking staff, students, and parents to take the following preventative actions suggested by the California Department of Public Health:
    • Use “respiratory etiquette”
    • Wash hands frequently.
      • Encourage hand washing by students and staff, schedule time for handwashing.
    • Stay home when sick.
      • Remain at home until fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
      • Seek immediate medical care if symptoms become more severe, e.g., high fever or difficulty breathing.
    • Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces.
    • Separate sick students and staff from others until they can go home.
    • Encourage flu vaccine for those who haven’t had it this season to reduce illnesses and absences on campus (but won’t prevent coronavirus illnesses).
    Information about the Coronavirus can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
    We will continue to provide further updates from the CDC, CDE, and Butte County Public Health Officials. More information can be found on our school website at http://www.manzanitaelementaryschool.com/

    Estimadas familias de Manzanita:
    La salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y el personal son una prioridad principal, y entendemos que el nuevo coronavirus (COVID-19) está causando preocupación en muchos de nuestros padres. En este momento, se han reportado cero casos en el condado de Butte, pero nuestro distrito escolar está tomando precauciones para prevenir la propagación de todas las enfermedades infecciosas.
    Hemos dado instrucciones a nuestro personal de conserjería para que preste atención adicional a la desinfección de áreas de alto contacto como manijas de puertas, mesas, escritorios, mostradores, equipos y llaves de acuerdo con las pautas de los CDC.
    Estamos pidiendo al personal, estudiantes y padres que tomen las siguientes acciones preventivas sugeridas por el Departamento de Salud Pública de California:
    • Use "etiqueta respiratoria"
    • Lavarse las manos con frecuencia.
      • Fomentar el lavado de manos por parte de los alumnos y el personal, programar un horario para lavarse las manos.
    • Quédese en casa cuando esté enfermo.
      • Permanezca en casa hasta que la fiebre haya desaparecido durante al menos 24 horas sin el uso de medicamentos para reducir la fiebre.
      • Busque atención médica inmediata si los síntomas se vuelven más severos, por ejemplo, fiebre alta o dificultad para respirar.
    • Rutinariamente limpie las superficies frecuentemente tocadas.
    • Separe a los estudiantes enfermos y al personal de los demás hasta que puedan irse a casa.
    • Fomentar la vacuna contra la gripe para aquellos que no la han tenido esta temporada para reducir enfermedades y ausencias en el campus (pero no evitarán las enfermedades por coronavirus).
    Puede encontrar información sobre el coronavirus en https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
    Continuaremos brindando más actualizaciones de los CDC, CDE y los funcionarios de salud pública del condado de Butte. Se puede encontrar más información en el sitio web de nuestra escuela en http://www.manzanitaelementaryschool.com/

    Welcome to Manzanita

    Manzanita Elementary provides an exceptional learning environment for students ranging from grades TK to eight. We strive to create a safe, engaging and dynamic learning environment full of support for our students while also promoting a personalized experience helping them capitalize on their strengths and unique individual characteristics.

    We believe education provides opportunity. We are committed to giving our students the foundational skills and knowledge needed to give them as many options as possible when they graduate from high school. We believe that students must be challenged with rigorous coursework and opportunities to think critically to solve problems.

    At Manzanita, we value risk taking and perseverance while emphasizing academic achievement through collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. Our focus is building the mindset for learning that supports students in becoming resilient, flexible and entrepreneurial learners ready to tackle the technological demands of our current world. We provide a variety of learning opportunities that, when appropriate, utilize technology as a tool for learning and student engagement. We strive to create learning spaces across our school that foster the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth of each of our students. As a learning community, we value and expect consideration and respect for others, empathy, responsibility, initiative, resourcefulness, and self-advocacy.

    One of the many amazing things that sets Manzanita apart from other schools is our active parent support and involvement. Parent participation is a key component to student success and we encourage each and every parent to become a part of our community in some way. We take great pride in the strong partnerships we have with our families.  Together, we work as a team to ensure that our Manzanita Mustangs develop to their fullest potential and become entrepreneurial learners ready to make a difference in the world! 

    Manzanita is a truly special and amazing place. Please feel free to contact me as we work together to continue the solid traditions of the Manzanita Elementary School District. Thanks for visiting our website.
