News

Two Rock Elementary School was awarded the designation of Purple Star School. This is the inaugural award; only 32 schools in the state of California were awarded the Purple Star Designation. Purple Star Schools are committed and equipped to meet the needs of military connected students and families. California Purple Star School Designation Program (Purple Star Program) seeks to reduce the burden on military-connected students and their families by articulating the most critical transition supports for military-connected students and their families by publicly designating schools that meet certain requirements. Two Rock offers student enrichment in areas of outdoor education, yoga, legos, garden club; interventions in math and reading, counseling service for students, and rich learning environments for all students who attend Two Rock Elementary School.

COVID-19 Testing for Students

COVID-19 testing is an effective way to help prevent the spread of the virus. In thelast two weeks leading up to Winter Break three students tested positive for COVID-19. I strongly encourage families to sign up for the COLOR PCR TESTING Platform for COVID-19 if they have not yet done so. There is no cost to the families, students test on campus regularly or if a student tests positive in their class. Students who test may be placed on modified quarantine and continue to attend school with negative

COVID-19 test results. Parent Consent for COVID-19 Testing


COVID UPDATE

On Wednesday February 16, 2022 Sonoma County will rescind many mask requirements for indoors use. However, this new order does not include schools. All students in the state of California will still be required to wear a mask. This link Order of the Health Officer (Feb 9, 22 contains information for the new masking guidelines.


Attendance

Please bring your child to school prior to 8:30. It is disruptive to the class when a student arrives late. When students arrive late, they may miss out on important information.
