Good evening CSUS caregivers and scholars,

We hope everyone had an enjoyable week and weekend. This week, teachers began posting the status of your scholars’ online assignments in Aspen. You can see whether your scholar is completing work/receiving credit when you log into Aspen by following these instructions.

On Monday you will receive a Progress Report detailing your scholars’ grades and assignments for second semester up to March 13 (we apologize for the emails sent earlier this week - accurate March 13 grades have not yet been shared with you). This "Progress Report" details your scholar's graded assignments as of March 13, when the school building closed. This is not a complete picture of your scholar's grades. On March 13 we were only a little more than a month into the second semester, and many scholars were only beginning to complete and turn in work. Moving forward, these grades will not be visible in Aspen, so we wanted to share them with you now. Scholars will not be penalized for low/failing grades as of March 13; we know they have been working hard to complete assignments remotely since then. If you have any specific concerns or questions, please feel free to connect with me or your child's classroom teacher.

Cobra Dens continue to grow and experience success. CSUS administrators were recently interviewed by the MA Statewide Family Engagement Center about Cobra Dens as a “best practice” for promoting connection and social / emotional support during building closure. You can view the interview here. This past Friday Cobra Dens shared this video produced by CSUS teachers and staff. If you have a minute to watch, we know it will start your week with a smile! 

Last Friday scholars in Cobra Dens also received information about the upcoming Virtual Youth Forum on Mental Health. More information on the forum and how our scholars can get involved is available here. We hope you will tune in to CCTV on May 18th to watch, listen, and participate!

We hope that this update has been helpful. If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions please do not hesitate to reach out to any staff member. We may not be in the building but we are as always here to serve you.

Stay safe everyone!

Peace, 

Manuel and Christen
