We are definitely lucky to have our kids back 5 days a week in a classroom together but let's learn learn a little history about Leprechauns. According to the legend, the fairies pay the leprechauns for their work with golden coins, which the “little people” collect in large pots–the famous “pots of gold” often associated with leprechauns. ... The Americanized, good-natured leprechaun soon became a symbol of St. Patrick's Day and Ireland in general.

We are pleased to announce that in person instruction will open to five days a week, beginning Monday, March 15th. Students will attend Monday through Friday. The schedule is as follows: TK & Kinder 8:00 a.m.- 11:30 a.m. 1st - 3rd 8 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. If you have chosen to keep your child home on the Distance Learning model, you may continue to do so. Those students will need to connect online with their Distance Learning teacher: Monday - Friday, from 12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Students can arrive no earlier than 7:45 a.m. They will continue to enter through the gates at the front of the school. Buses will be in full service as well. Richard M. Moon School remains a closed campus, so we ask that parents drop their children off either in the parking lot with a crossing guard, or at the gate. Breakfast and lunch will not be served at school, but will be sent home with students every Monday. All of our safety protocols remain in place: students are required to wear their masks in the classroom and outside, more importantly as we all come back. We will continue to follow the social distancing guidelines. Classrooms will be set up so that students are at least four feet apart from each other, and further apart when possible. Attendance is very important. Please make sure that your child arrives on times each day ready to learn. Remember to notify the school if your child is unable to attend. The school nurses will continue to call home regarding absences every day. Teachers are excited to have the opportunity to have more instruction time. Please know that they have worked very hard to provide the best possible education under these conditions, and are continuing in making the transition back to a full school day. Classwork and homework will continue to be sent home. Thank you for your support and cooperation. If you have any questions you can call the office at (209)874-2371 The Spanish Version is attached.

“American Heart Month is a time when everyone should focus on their cardiovascular health. Nearly 1 in 2 adults have hypertension, and many go undiagnosed. That can lead to other issues such as risk for heart disease, stroke, heart failure, kidney failure, vision loss, peripheral artery disease, sexual dysfunction, pregnancy complications, and cognitive decline. Take a minute to check in on your own heart health with your care team. Over the past year, many of us may have put off medical appointments because of COVID-19, but please remember to put yourself at the top of your to-do list, and get your annual physical exam. Staying healthy is not only necessary for your school community but for you as well. https://www.cdc.gov/heartdisease/american_heart_month_patients.htm Women and Heart Health: Heart Disease Is Not a “Man’s Disease” https://www.elitecme.com/resource-center/nursing/women-and-heart-health?utm_campaign=WSNURS21%20US%20NEWS%20ALL%20Newsletter%2040424&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=111836208&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9jnCE_UfuE3324NfGOz-JYuDghh9JMDcUFGBO7nkUVHo-WX0smix7L-Ur_TDDWB2xiXBdj4TeydM8PiTfJDHtihi0goA&utm_content=111836208&utm_source=hs_email
