Dear Bandini Parents and Guardians,

I hope you are healthy and in good spirits. Bandini Elementary is committed to providing quality distance learning to all of our students.  The rapidly changing information on what we need to do to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic has forced everyone to make difficult yet necessary adjustments.   We realize there is no substitute to a face-to-face learning experience which takes place in a classroom, we are working to ensure our students continue to learn and grow academically during our school closure.  Our teachers have been working tirelessly the last few weeks in order to provide your child with the best online instructional opportunity possible.  Our staff has been utilizing district resources, researching new programs, and consulting with one another in order to make this difficult transition as easy as possible.  

Part of your child’s online instruction may include staff-led video and audio conference classes/meetings which can take place through Google Meets, Zoom, Google Hangouts, or a similar type of platform. Video and audio conference meetings are intended to improve academic collaboration and a way for our teachers to support your child’s online instruction.  If you choose to opt out of this resource please make sure to email your child’s teacher.

Please keep in mind, it is illegal to record any online instructional meetings without the teachers consent per Ed Code 51512.   We ask you to communicate this information to your child and help monitor their use of technology while at home.  We will continue to hold behavioral expectations for all of our students in order to ensure we provide a safe learning environment for all participants.  


Kind Regards, 

Phillip Nolasco, Ed.D.
