Teacher Work Stoppage/ Strike

Hello Pioneer Families,

As many of you may be aware, the New Haven Teachers Association has planned a strike starting on Monday, May 20th. School will be open during regular school hours 8:00-2:05. Site administration and other district staff will be leading students in various enrichment activities throughout the day.
Our before and after school program Kid’s First will be open during its regular hours. Please keep in mind that it is a Kids First policy that students must attend school during the regular school day in order to utilize the program.

Student safety is always our first priority. To ensure your student(s) have an enriching, safe space to work in, we are asking all students to enter school through the front of the Cafeteria double doors. After we take attendance we will begin our enrichment activities for the day. It is important to note that your child will not be doing their regular classwork on these days. Due to this there is no need for students to bring their backpacks to school. They are welcome to bring water and their lunch. We plan to give students any and all materials needed to complete their activities.

Our office staff will be available and ready to receive your calls if you have questions or if you need to get in touch with your student for any reason. Please be on the lookout for dialers and email updates as this will be our main mode of communication through the teacher work stoppage.
We hope a settlement can be reached soon.

Thank you,
Jeannette Alday
