GSE: February 25, 2021 Dear Gil Sanchez Parents and Students: As many of you are aware we will be transitioning back to Hybrid learning next week on Monday, March 1st. In preparation for the re-opening we have been working hard to make sure we do this as safely as possible. We are excited to welcome students back in person. If you have not spoken to your child’s teacher or the office about your preferred model of learning please make sure to call the office ASAP. We will help you with their placement during this transition. If you need bus transportation, please make sure your child is registered. We will be following all safety measures outlined in the NMPED Toolkit. We will follow the same procedures we had in the fall. One added measure of safety is that all rooms now have air filtration machines to ensure proper ventilation. All will be required to wear a mask. Please make sure that your child has a mask that is clean and fits properly each morning. Screening and temperature checks will still take place upon arrival and prior to anyone entering the building. Anyone with a temperature higher than 100.3 will not be allowed to enter the building and will be sent home. At this time parents/visitors are not allowed in the building unless otherwise scheduled by the office or teachers. For arrival, please remain in the drive-thru line. First bell is at 8:45, tardy bell is at 8:50. We will start the screening process at 8:40 every morning. For dismissal, again remain in your vehicle in the drive-thru line. We will get your child or children to you as safely and quickly as possible. You’ll need to make sure to show your “orange pick up card” to the duty staff at dismissal. If you need a new card, we will issue them in the drive thru line in the AM, or you can come by the office during office hours. Please remember that we have “school” 5 days a week. Students are always expected to participate or notify teacher or the office when they cannot attend in person or remotely. In choosing the Remote model you and your child are agreeing to attend virtually when assigned a class meeting and submit work according to the teacher’s requirements. In choosing the Hybrid model you and your child are agreeing to attend two-days a week in person and to continue with Remote learning on the other 3 days of the week. Attendance will be taken daily. Close communication and collaboration will need to continue. As you know the need for a strong parent/teacher/student partnership has been more important than ever before. The good news is practice makes perfect, we have experience with hybrid, we all have experience with remote learning and now this transition will be much easier. We will still have obstacles and in our Gil Sanchez way we will overcome them together with teamwork, patience and understanding. We are looking forward to next week and a strong finish to this historical school year that we will all remember for the rest of our lives! Let’s do this! We are “Gil Sanchez Strong” and we will ensure excellence in all we do. Mrs. Martinez

4 de diciembre de 2020 Para: Padres o guardianes de niños que asisten en la Escuela Gil Sanchez, La Escuela Primaria Gil Sanchez está trabajando con el Departamento de Educación Pública de Nuevo México (NMPED) y el Departamento de Salud de Nuevo México (NMDOH) porque un miembro del personal o un estudiante que asiste a nuestra escuela ha dado positivo por COVID-19. Esta carta es para informarle sobre los próximos pasos necesarios para proteger a su hijo y a nuestra comunidad de COVID-19. Según la guía de NMPED y NMDOH, estamos obligados a investigar quién tuvo "contacto cercano" con el miembro del personal o estudiante que dio positivo para COVID-19. Un "contacto cercano" se define como una persona que estuvo a menos de seis pies durante más de tres minutos de alguien que ha dado positivo por COVID-19 y todo el personal y los estudiantes que estaban en el mismo salón o en el mismo autobús que el individuo infectado. Según NMPED y NMDOH, todo el personal que estaba en "contacto cercano" con el individuo infectado debe ser probado de siete a 10 días después de la exposición de contacto cercano a la persona que haya dado positivo por COVID-19. Se recomienda encarecidamente a todos los estudiantes que estuvieron en contactos cercanos que se hagan la prueba. Tanto el personal como los contactos cercanos de los estudiantes deben permanecer en cuarentena en casa durante 14 días, independientemente del resultado de la prueba. Mientras tanto, si usted o su hijo comienzan a desarrollar síntomas de COVID-19, que son fiebre, escalofríos, tos, falta de respiración o dificultad respiratoria, fatiga, dolores musculares o corporales, dolor de cabeza, nueva pérdida de olor o sabor, dolor de garganta, congestión o escurrimiento nasal, náuseas o vómitos, diarrea [https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html], llame a su proveedor de atención médica o a la línea directa COVID-19 al 1-855-600-3453.

Las áreas de la escuela (incluyendo los autobuses) en las cual el individuo que fue dado positivo por COVID-19 estuvo serán limpiadas y desinfectadas y se le notificara a aquellos que estuvieron en estrecho contacto del caso positivo. Por favor, continúe enviando a su hijo a la escuela a menos que se le notifique que su hijo fue un contacto cercano de una persona que ha dado positivo por COVID-19, su hijo desarrolla síntomas de COVID-19, o su hijo tiene una prueba de COVID-19 positiva.

GSE December 4, 2020 To: Parents or Guardians of children who attend Gil Sanchez Elementary, Gil Sanchez Elementary is working with the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) and New Mexico’s Department of Health (NMDOH) because a staff member at our facility or a child who attends our school has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last on campus on November 20, 2020. There is no closed contact exposure. This letter is to inform you about the next steps necessary to protect your child and our community from COVID-19. Per guidance from both NMPED and NMDOH, we are required to investigate to see who had “close contact” with the staff member or student who tested positive for COVID-19. A “close contact” is defined as being closer than six feet for more than three minutes to a person who is positive for COVID-19 and all staff and students who were in the same classroom or on the same bus as the infected individual. According to NMPED and NMDOH, all staff who were in “close contact” with the infected individual must be tested seven to 10 days after close contact exposure to the positive COVID-19 individual. All students who were close contacts are strongly encouraged to be tested. Both staff and student close contacts must self-quarantine at home for 14 days, regardless of the test result. In the meantime, if you or your child begin to develop symptoms of COVID-19, which are fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of smell or taste, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea [https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019- ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html], please call your healthcare provider or the COVID-19 Hotline at 1-855-600-3453. It is important that you call ahead to your healthcare provider before presenting to the physician’s office, clinic, urgent care or emergency room so that they can be prepared for your arrival. They may also refer you to a testing clinic. Areas of the school (including buses) in which the COVID-19 positive individual spent time will be cleaned and disinfected and those who were close contacts of the positive case will be notified. Please continue to send your child to school unless you are notified that your child was a close contact of a positive COVID-19 individual, your child develops COVID-19 symptoms, or your child has a positive COVID-19 test. Likewise, your household members do not need to quarantine unless your child tests positive for COVID-19 or your household members are identified as a close contact of a positive COVID-19 individual. You may call Deborah Baca at 505-966-1271 or NMDOH at (505) 827-0006, if you have questions. Thank you for your support in these efforts. Sincerely, Lawrence Sanchez

Puede llamar a Deborah Baca at 505-966-1271 o NMDOH al (505) 827-0006, si tiene preguntas. Gracias por su apoyo en estos esfuerzos. Sinceramente Lawrence Sanchez

November 25, 2020 To: Parents or Guardians of children who attend Gil Sanchez Elementary, Gil Sanchez Elementary is working with the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) and New Mexico’s Department of Health (NMDOH) because a staff member at our facility or a child who attends our school has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last on campus on November 19, 2020. This letter is to inform you about the next steps necessary to protect your child and our community from COVID-19. Per guidance from both NMPED and NMDOH, we are required to investigate to see who had “close contact” with the staff member or student who tested positive for COVID-19. A “close contact” is defined as being closer than six feet for more than three minutes to a person who is positive for COVID-19 and all staff and students who were in the same classroom or on the same bus as the infected individual. According to NMPED and NMDOH, all staff who were in “close contact” with the infected individual must be tested seven to 10 days after close contact exposure to the positive COVID-19 individual. All students who were close contacts are strongly encouraged to be tested. Both staff and student close contacts must self-quarantine at home for 14 days, regardless of the test result. In the meantime, if you or your child begin to develop symptoms of COVID-19, which are fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of smell or taste, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea [https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019- ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html], please call your healthcare provider or the COVID-19 Hotline at 1-855-600-3453. It is important that you call ahead to your healthcare provider before presenting to the physician’s office, clinic, urgent care or emergency room so that they can be prepared for your arrival. They may also refer you to a testing clinic. Areas of the school (including buses) in which the COVID-19 positive individual spent time will be cleaned and disinfected and those who were close contacts of the positive case will be notified. Please continue to send your child to school unless you are notified that your child was a close contact of a positive COVID-19 individual, your child develops COVID-19 symptoms, or your child has a positive COVID-19 test. Likewise, your household members do not need to quarantine unless your child tests positive for COVID-19 or your household members are identified as a close contact of a positive COVID-19 individual. You may call Deborah Baca at 505-966-1271 or NMDOH at (505) 827-0006, if you have questions. Thank you for your support in these efforts. Sincerely, Lawrence Sanchez

GSE- I want to touch base with each or you regarding attendance. Our attendance policy has been added under documents and in Schoology messages. When school started you should of signed a Hybrid or Remote Learning Contract. Please refer to those as well. I want to thank many of you for doing such a great job with turning in assignments, attending online as required, watching all videos on Schoology and meeting your teacher's requirements. As we are now in full swing we must do better with attendance, participation and completion of work when you are working from home either hybrid (3 days at home) or fully remote (all 5 at home). This is the new norm for school. If you need assistance please contact your child's teacher. I can't stress enough how important it is that you keep in contact with your child's teacher and ensure that your child is keeping up with his or her school work. Also please remember to submit doctor's notes and written parent notes when your child is absent. Regular school hours should be attempted to be kept when possible at home. Regular bedtime is also important at this time. School is in session and we are half way through our first quarter already. We have so much to cover as is with our late start due to COVID-19, so every single day is so important and cannot be wasted. Our district attendance coach is starting to make contact with families that are not complying with attendance contracts. Thanks for your attention to this and let's do our best to continue our hard work as a Blue Ribbon School. Mrs. Martinez

GSE-Good afternoon! Our teachers have returned to work and are working harder than ever in preparing for the start of this year. As you know this new year will start much differently than anything we have ever done before. I ask that you all be patient with us, and we will do the same with you. We are all in this together and we must be united for our students. Flexibility, as things may and probably will change as we go will be important. This week your child's teacher will be calling you to give you more information about expectations for next week. Individual conference times will be set up and will vary by grade levels. Please make every effort to attend the conference. K-3 and special education students will be asked to stay a little longer to complete some reading testing. Please bring the device you are planning to use with your child to the conference. If you are receiving a device your classroom teacher will have it. As we are provided with more devices we will be able to give out more later. As always call the office at 966-1900 if you have questions.

As we prepare for the upcoming school year there are many uncertainties. Belen Consolidated Schools is working on preparing for students to re-enter school in the fall. The Public Education Department is working with a task force to provide guidance. The link to access the 2020-2021 Student Calendar that was approved by the School Board is: https://go.aws/37m3V2p. We are anticipating that we will start school as scheduled on August 18th. We are hopeful that it will be in-person with all our students but are preparing for variations that may need to take place do to COVID-19 CDC guidelines. We recognize that students are our foundation and will make decisions that positively impact their learning and well-being.

Dear parents, In planning ahead for the 2020-2021 school year, parent requests will be taking into consideration but not guaranteed as it is our goal to have equally balanced classrooms. If you would like to submit a possible request it must be done in writing via email to: martinezca@beleneagles.org by April 30th. In this email please include your name, a call back number and describe your child's learning style and justification for the request you are making. No exceptions to this deadline will be accepted. If the teacher you request is no longer in that grade level your child will still be assigned to that class. Keep in mind we are a distinguished school because of the high level of teacher expertise in the building. We are looking forward to a great upcoming school year with your child.

Exciting News for Gil Sanchez Elementary Gil Sanchez Elementary has been chosen as one of the two schools to represent New Mexico this year as a National Title I Distinguished School. The program is a project of the National Title I Association that publicly recognizes schools for their positive educational advances in one of the following three categories: Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two consecutive years Category 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups Category 3: Excellence in serving special populations of students (e.g., homeless, migrant, English learners, etc.). Gil Sanchez Elementary was chosen under Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two consecutive years. Because only two schools per state can be selected as a National Title I Distinguished School each year, this award is an especially prestigious honor for the school, staff and students. Gil Sanchez Elementary students, community and staff will be honored at the next school board meeting on Tuesday, December 10th at 5:00 p.m. Please join us to help celebrate our success.
