On July 2, OUSD provided an update on the progress the district is making on recommendations for reopening schools. We thank everyone who joined the online meeting and apologize for the technical difficulties.

Linked below please find the recording of the presentation which includes: key survey feedback, a message from our Superintendent, a presentation by Dr. Lee Atkinson-McEvoy on the latest science around COVID-19, and recommendations for an instructional model for this fall.

Additionally, there are two opportunities for the community to provide feedback. We encourage you to take the survey and comment on the working group recommendations.

This summer, Edna Brewer will be offering incoming Brewer 6th graders, current 6th graders and current 7th graders a free opportunity to bring engineering and science into your home through the Mr. October Foundation and @stem_101. This opportunity will be supported by Ms. B and Coach Corin. This is not formal schooling or distance learning, it is an at-home engineering opportunity with some coaching and community building with Ms. B and Coach Corin a couple times a week!

Dear Panther Community,

I am trying to find the words to express the varying emotions I have experienced across this past week. I cried when I first saw the video of an officer kneeling on the neck of George Floyd. Every time I see the video, I feel a pain that cuts very deeply. It is disheartening, frustrating, and saddening. I am also saddened by the violence, rioting and looting within and outside of our city. These behaviors overshadow the peaceful meassage of protesters marching to impact change, and that is very unfortunate.

I am still trying to process everything, and I know many in our school community are as well. Lil Panthers, some of you may be feeling hurt, angry, confused, and fearful. We love you, and are here to support you. If you need to talk someone, please reach out to me or your grade level admin and we will connect you with an adult.

As a Brewer community, we have been committed to authentic, open conversations around race equity, and we will continue to do so. If you are interested in engaging in such discussions, we welcome your participation when those opportunities are announced. Collectively we can do our small part to contribute to larger systemic change.

I have attached a poignant communication from Superintendent Dr. Kyla Johnson-Trammell. I find it a worthy read.

In Solidarity,

Principal Layne
