Thank you!

Students and Parents,

We want to thank you for your involvement in preparing your students to be ready for school each and every day. This year’s opening has been very smooth due to great planning, flexibility, and especially your involvement. The turnout for our Breakfast Social was tremendous! I want to remind all our families that Haynes is a closed campus. We ask that starting Monday, parents are tosay their goodbyes at the gate and not come onto campus before or during school without signing in or out.

In addition, this coming Monday, August 21st , we will be experiencing an extraordinary event. The Solar Eclipse (more information is posted below) is a beautiful event but can be a dangerous event as well if proper equipment is not worn. In light of this potential danger, we will be altering our daily schedule to keep our students inside the classroom during the major cycle of the eclipse. School will start and end at the same time so the school schedule will not affect your drop-off or pick-up plans. We will simply have in class activities to better monitor the students. We expect all students to attend school on Monday and carry on as usual.

Thank you,

Barbara A. Meade

Solar Eclipse

As many of you are already aware, there will be a solar eclipse occurring on Monday, August 21 st across North America. The eclipse is scheduled to begin at 9:05 am PST and end at 11:44 am PST. The peak of the eclipse will occur at approximately 10:21 am PST. Because this event will occur during school hours we want to make sure our students and staff are able to experience this event in a safe manner. The school district has provided guidelines as well as information from NASA to follow during a partial eclipse. Parents, please review the following with your child to insure their safety.

Students must not look directly into the sun, even during complete solar eclipses. The danger of retinal burn comes from the invisible infrared rays, which penetrate light filters and instantaneously damage eyes. The retina is not sensitive to pain; therefore, the victim might not immediately be aware of eye damage. Retinal burns are incurable and destroy the field of fine vision. The victim’s ability to read can be lost forever.

The only safe way to look directly at the un-eclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or handheld solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the Sun. It is recommended by NASA that eclipse glasses be ISO approved. (They should be marked ISO 12312-2)

Welcome Back!

Dear Haynes Family,

Welcome Back to School! I hope you have had a rejuvenating summer. We are proud to be starting off our sixth year as an Affiliated Charter School of LAUSD. We have been working through the summer to prepare for a smooth school opening. The school office opened July 20th for enrollment between 8a.m. and 1p.m. Office hours are Monday – Friday, from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. If you have a child to enroll, please do so before school starts, so your child can be placed in a class before school opens.
The District’s focuses is on improving school attendance, and continue implementing “Common Core” national standards for ALL Students.” We want all students to graduate High School being college and career ready, and this starts in elementary school! More information will be coming about these goals. Parents and students are invited to the Breakfast Social on Monday, August 14th, to meet your child’s teacher and our staff. Be sure to mark your calendar and plan on coming!
