Principal's Update

December 5, 2021

It’s hard to believe, but we are already in the last few weeks of the first semester! Students and staff have done an amazing job transitioning back to in person learning while keeping the Irvington community as safe from COVID transmission as possible. With only 7 reported cases since August 1st, and a school population of 2478, IHS has a 0.28% positive rate, which is far less than the overall rate in Fremont. Go Vikings!

 

December Calendar

Final exams will be the last three days before Winter Break and students will want to be sure to bring snacks as there will not be time to go off campus between exams.  These days will be both a late start and early release (please see specific schedules below). If you have a 0 or 7th period class or ROP course off campus, please check with your instructor to see if and when they plan on giving a final exam.

 

First Final          9:30-11:40 am

Break                11:40-12:05 pm (may not leave campus)

Second Final    12:05 - 2:15 pm

 

Monday, 12/20         3rd & 6th period exams

Tuesday, 12/21         1st & 4th period exams

Wednesday, 12/22   2nd & 5th period exams 

We will not have Flex or Advisory on these Final Exam days.

Please note that while we would like everyone to be here to take their final exams on the designated days and times, if your student has ANY of the symptoms listed on the COVID screener, please keep them home and contact your attendance clerk and teachers to let them know of your absence status.  Follow the protocols listed by the Alameda County Health Department in order to be able to return.  

Also note - if you plan on traveling over Winter Break, please follow the travel guidelines included in Superintendent Cammack’s 12/1/2021 update.

 

COVID & Flu Vaccine Clinic

The second weekend of vaccine clinics at IHS completed this past weekend.  Both the November and December clinics allowed FUSD, in partnership with Safeway pharmacies, to deliver COVID and Flu shots to over a thousand Fremont students and family members.  Thank you for helping keep our community as safe as possible!
 

Irvington Conservatory Theater presents

“A Wrinkle in Time” will be playing again next weekend in the Vahalla Theater.  Please join me in the audience this Thursday, Friday or Saturday 12/9-12/11 (tickets available at https://www.ihsdrama.com).

 

Fall Sports Results 

A HUGE congratulations to Samuel Forbes for being the first Irvington young man in almost 20 years to make it to the Cross Country meet at the state level!  Samuel placed 13th in our division (Div 2) so remember to give him a thumbs up next time you meet.

 

Winter Sports 

The Wrestling, Basketball, Cheer, and Soccer teams are all in high gear, with league play commencing this month.  I had the opportunity to see a nailbiter Boys Varsity Basketball game this past Thursday against Milpitas.  Please come and join me in supporting our athletes from the stands.

Effective 12/1/2021, in accordance with the 11/24/2021 California Department of Public Health update, FUSD student-athlete indoor Winter Sport participants (Wrestling, Cheerleading, Basketball) who do not wear a mask during heavy exertion/active participation in their sport (practicing, conditioning, competing, or performing) will COVID test weekly through on-campus Color Testing.  If preferred, COVID testing through a personal medical provider is also allowed, provided written proof of weekly testing is submitted.

On-campus weekly COVID Color testing will be available at no cost to student-athletes on Tuesdays, with Irvington Athletes testing in the Athletic Training Room from 11:00am to 12:00pm .  All Basketball, Wrestling and Cheer coaches have given their athletes the needed information regarding how to register for these tests.

 

Student Parking Permits

Parking permits are required for students to bring vehicles onto campus.  If they do not display their permit they will get a warning, and if a second offence occurs a ticket will be issued.  Please be sure to stop by Room 27 during passing periods if you need to complete a parking permit application.

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful winter holiday season and a safe New Year!

Lock up your valuables

Please be sure to either keep your valuable on your person or in your locked locker.  Bags left unattended on the field, in the locker room, or any where else are more likely to be taken and/or rummaged through.  And don’t forget to actually click the lock closed on your locker.

 

Traffic

Please remember if you use the horseshoe to only turn right onto Grimmer or go straight onto Blacow.  Attempting to move to the far left across multiple lanes backs up traffic for everyone. Thank you!

October 25, 2021

Trial run - Horseshoe open for drop off/pick up

Tuesday-Friday of this week, we will have the horseshoe (in front of the office extending to the library) open for drop off in the morning and pick up in the afternoon.  It will be a single lane, close to the curb.  Have your student(s) on the passenger side for the safest pedestrian route.  Please do not line up in advance in the afternoon, as you will not be allowed to wait for your student, as everyone behind you will be blocked. Upon exiting the horseshoe only a right hand turn onto Grimmer, or straight on Blacow, will be allowed.  Please remember to follow all the safe driving rules to make this trial as successful as possible - THANK YOU!

 

Homecoming

This past week has been a wonderful display of student pride, creativity and hardwork.  The football team won the game under balmy skies on the 15th, and each class did a marvelous job of decorating the stage and courtyard on their designated day!  Wind, rain and wet cardboard could not dampen Irvington spirit, and luckily the clouds ceased their downpour to allow over a thousand students to dance the night away on the 22nd.  Thank you to ALL the parents and community members for the wonderful treats students enjoyed from the PTSA’s generosity!

 

Great America ShakeOut

Students and staff did a great job at practicing DROP, COVER and HOLD for a potential earthquake and remained calm and organized while evacuating to the football field.  This event helped us to pinpoint a few areas we will need to review/update with the IHS community - which is exactly what a drill is for.  Please know Irvington is prepared in case of an emergency!

 

Second Quarter

It’s hard to believe that we are already 25% through this school year, but grades for first quarter were submitted on Friday, October 22nd.  Please view your student’s marks via Infinate Campus Parent Portal.  If you would like to get more information on how to use IC, please refer to the parent FAQ here.

 

Rainy Weather = Traffic Cautions

Please be sure to slow down when driving in the parking lot and areas surrounding IHS now that wet weather has arrived.  Rain not only increases the breaking distance for cars and bicycles, but reduces visibility for everyone, including students using hoods and umbrellas to stay dry.  Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe.

 

Looking Ahead to November

Please note there will be no school on Thursday, November 11th in observance of Veteran’s Day.  Because it will be a four day week, all days will be block days.

Monday and Wednesday will be 1st, Advisory/Flex, 3rd, and 5th periods

Tuesday and Friday will be 2nd, Advisory/Flex, 4th, and 6th periods.

We will also be having Minimum Days on November 18th and 19th to allow time for Parent teacher conferences.  More information will be coming out closer to that time, but note, all conferences will be held via video (Zoom).

 

Thanksgiving Break is November 22-26th and the office will be closed during this time.  

 

 

嘗試新運行 - 開放馬蹄彎道供接送學生 (Trial run - Horseshoe open for drop off/pick up)

這週的周二至週五,我們將開放馬蹄鐵彎路(從辦公室前面延伸至圖書館),以供上午送孩子和下午接孩子之用。這將是一條靠近路邊的單行車道,。吩咐您的學生行走在乘客一側最為安全的行人路線上。請不要在下午提前排隊,也就是您不允許坐在車內等候學生前來,因為您後面的每個人都被您擋住了。當您離開馬蹄彎道後,只允許右轉進入 Grimmer 或直駛進入 Blacow。

請記住要遵守所有安全駕駛規則,以使本次試驗盡可能馬到成功 - 謝謝!

 

回校之夜 (Homecoming)

過去一周精彩地展示了學生的自豪感、創造力和努力不懈。 15日,在晴朗的天空下,足球隊贏得了比賽,每個班級都在指定的日子裡出色地裝飾了舞台和庭院!風、雨和濕紙板都阻擋不了Irvington 精神,幸好烏雲阻擋了大雨來臨,讓一千多名學生能在 22 日晚上狂舞盡歡。感謝所有家長和社區成員使學生享受到 PTSA 的慷慨和美好款待!

 

全美地震演習 (Great America ShakeOut)

學生和教職員工在練習 “落下”,”覆蓋” 和 “保持”, 以應對地震的潛在發生做好準備,並且在疏散到足球場時能保持冷靜和井井有條。這次活動幫助我們確定了一些需要與 IHS 社區一起審查/更新的領域——這正是演習的目的。請知道 Irvington 已準備好應對緊急情況!

 

第二季度 (Second Quarter)

難以置信我們在本學年已經完成了 25%,而第一季度的成績已在 10 月 22 日星期五提交。請通過  “無限的校園家長平台” ( Infinite Campus Parent Portal)  查看您學生的分數。如果您想獲得有關如何使用 IC 的更多信息,請參閱 此處是家長常見問題解答.

 

下雨天 = 注意交通 (Rainy Weather = Traffic Cautions)

由於潮濕的天氣已經到來,請在停車場和 IHS 周圍地區行駛時務必減速。下雨不僅增加了汽車和自行車的剎車距離,而且降低了每個人的能見度,包括使用兜帽和雨傘不被淋濕的學生。感謝您的幫助以確保大家的安全。


 

展望十一月 (Looking Ahead to November)

 

請注意,為了紀念退伍軍人節,11 月 11 日星期四將不用上課。 因為這一周只有四個上學日,所以每天都是 “分段日” ( block days )。

週一和周三將是第一,諮詢/靈活 ( Advisory/Flex ),第三和第五節課。

週二和周五將是第 二,諮詢/靈活  ( Advisory/Flex ),第四和第六 節課。

 

我們還將在 11 月 18 日和 19 日定為短日上課天,以備為 “家長教師會議”之用 。 屆時將有更多信息發布,但請注意,所有會議都將通過視頻 (Zoom) 舉行。

 

感恩節假期是 11 月 22 日至 26 日,辦公室將在此期間休假。

Principal's Update 9/20/2021

Hello families,

 

I'm writing in partnership with you about an issue that has begun to impact us here at Irvington High School.

 

Tik Tok Video School Theft-USA Today

 

One of the latest Tik Tok challenges has students across the country stealing soap dispensers and other school items and then posting and bragging about their exploits.  Kids try to one-up each other both in the difficulty and value of what they take and in the number of views they get on their posts.

 

Multiple sites have seen this occurring this past week here in Fremont.  I'm asking that you discuss this with your children.  Any theft or vandalism to school property will have consequences.  Depending on the level of theft law enforcement will be involved as well.  In particular, any items or supplies related to the health and safety of students and staff will not be tolerated as it relates to PPE and Covid-19.

 

Even students that don't actively take anything contribute to this annoying (and potentially dangerous and illegal) trend continuing if they encourage such behavior by liking or commenting.

 

If your child has been involved in any of the thefts so far I am happy to have a conversation with them on how they can repair the choices that they made.  It will result in a different outcome if they come forward now of their own accord.  Those that are caught stealing or vandalizing will face the consequences of such actions.

 

The vast majority of "our" kids have comported themselves in ways that reflect genuine respect for the health and safety of each other.  I don't mean to generalize and have you think that all students are participating in this "trend."

 

Thank you for reading.  Please let me know if you have any information you can share with me on this matter.

 

Ms. Chaney Aiello



 

In other news

 

“Navigating Irvington” 

This week we will be hosting “Navigating Irvington” at 6 PM on Tuesday-Thursday.  Each evening is targeted to a specific age group; Tuesday is for sophomores and juniors, Wednesday is for seniors, and Thursday is for freshman.   Counselors and administrators will be there to go over frequently asked high school questions. Zoom links will be posted shortly on the IHS website.

 

Mid-Autumn Festival

Tomorrow we will be hosting our mid autumn wellness faire, a joint effort between clubs as well as our partner, Bay Area Community Health. One of the four goals for Irvington is student and staff wellness, including both physical and mental health.  I hope a variety of classes are able to join us in the courtyard outside the office to explore new ideas.

 

Dress Code

I would like to ask families to remind their students to come to school dressed within FUSD dress code, as is shown in the following diagram. Your assistance is appreciated.

 

 


 

Principal’s Update 9/6/2021

 

It has been wonderful to see students and staff back on campus learning and enjoying each other’s company over the last two weeks. As the world, and our community are still battling COVID, please be sure to do the following.

 

DAILY SCREENER

Please be sure to go over this questionnaire with your student EVERY morning before they come to school.  If they are experiencing any of the symptoms or answer yes to any question, please do NOT send them to school.  Instead, contact your health professional to see what is the cause of the symptoms and follow the directions on this flowchart

 

PPE (personal protective equipment)

All have done a great job of adjusting to in person learning while wearing masks and following hand sanitizing protocols.  Please see the article from the CDC regarding preferred mask types and how to wear them. Please note masks with respirators are not preferred. 

 

If you find the cost of obtaining cloth masks for your students a difficulty, please let the front office know, as some families have generously donated packages of washable cloth masks for student use.  We will always be happy to provide a mask for a student that has lost/soiled the one they brought at the beginning of the school day.

 

 

 

COVID TESTING

Free testing for staff and students (sorry, no family members at this time) will be available at IHS every Wednesday from 7am-3pm, outside Room 43.  Parents, you do not need to be present while your high schooler takes their own sample, but you do need to fill out a one-time registration/permission for your student.

 

TRAFFIC

More single cars than ever are being driven to take students to/from school.  This is evident in both the drop in AC Transit ridership (only 1/3-1/2 of the number of students that took the bus pre-COVID) and the time people spend waiting to get through the line in the main lot.  If your student is self-mobile, please consider dropping them off at alternate locations, such as Carol Ave., where they can walk across the fields, Walgreens parking lot, or the Community Center.  

Please note that drop off/pick up in the horseshoe is reserved for students that have mobility challenges.  

 

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT (BTSN)

Thursday, September 9th will be BTSN.  This will be held via Zoom, with each teacher sending out links for each period via Google classroom and Infinite Campus Messages.  The evening will start at 6 pm, with an introduction to administrators, counselors and other staff.  At 6:30, families will follow their student’s schedule for 10 minute classes.  More information will be posted soon.  

 

Thank you for continuing to support your child and the entire Irvington High School Community.
