School is now back to its regular daily schedule and calendar. We are continuing to monitor the air quality on a daily basis. There are N95 filtration masks for each student and staff member. The outdoor spaces on our campus are being watered down daily as to break down ash deposits. Staff met Monday to discuss the challenges many of our staff and students faced throughout last week. We invited our Positive Discipline trainer to facilitate student and staff centered processing groups and to discuss strategies and systems for managing the transition back to school. We wanted our practice to be trauma informed and to feel prepared to meet the needs of our students mentally and emotionally as they ease back into their daily routines. Love and prayers for all impacted by such devastation and tragedy.
Be sure to mark your calendar and join for the following up coming events!

The REACH Parent Foundation (RPF) is a non-profit 501c3 organization established for the purpose of operating a California charter school (Link to REACH Charter). The foundation is operated by a Board of Directors that is charged with monitoring the school’s fiscal responsibilities, staffing, and facilities. The board typically meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month. We encourage REACH families and community members to attend board meetings as a way of staying connected to the bigger picture decisions that are made at this level of the organization.
We also encourage parents and community members to consider applying to become a RPF member of the Board of Directors. The RPF strives to recruit board members with a passion for creating a high quality learning environment for our students. Please contact the RPF President of the Board of Directors, Angie Powers, for more information at email@example.com.
Here is a list of current board members and their contact information.
