March 30, 2020

Dear Parents, Student and Staff:

First, I hope this finds you and your loved ones doing well.   Thank you to everyone that continues to go above and beyond to support our students during this difficult time- from our plant staff who has worked daily to clean our campus to our teachers that have been trying really hard to meet the educational needs of our students while balancing those of their immediate family members.   Despite the struggle that we currently face, we continue to maintain our students at the center of all we do.  Whether inside our classrooms or remotely from home, Roybal Staff and Teachers continue to demonstrate their commitment to our school and community.  As such, we have collectively developed a continuity of learning plan to support our efforts in ensuring every student receives the best education possible during these times. 

Below you will find information on how we plan on supporting our students during this time.  Our administration, teachers and staff will continue to ground our work in our school’s instructional foci and overall WASC critical areas of need.  We have used these as the framework for our plan.  Each teacher will have office hours twice a week, at minimum, where students will be able to log on and receive direct support from all of their different teachers.  Additionally, each teacher will provide standards-based lessons and assignments to ensure that during this time, each child is not only learning, but has an opportunity to work independently on refining different skills and receiving the intervention needed to support them through their respective courses. Lastly, our teachers will continue to use Mastery Based Grading this year and we will continue to ensure all of our students' grades reflect their mastery of the standards. We ask all of our students to log on to Schoology regularly.  The online instruction and learning are a continuation of in-seat courses which are credit-bearing; attendance is important, and it is critical that students receive their virtual lesson and are regularly engaged in the learning taking place in order to complete credit requirements. Attendance is tracked by logging into Schoology and interacting with the content and your teachers. 

Our school team, teachers and administrators, are receiving professional development during this time in an effort to support our work given what we are experiencing today is new to all of us.  Again, I want to assure you that instruction continues to be our number one priority at Roybal, and our entire school team will do our best to provide our students with meaningful learning opportunities and academic support. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me should you have any questions or concerns.  Together, we will get through these times.  On behalf of the Roybal Teachers and Staff, thank you for your support, flexibility and patience during this time. 

Take care,

Blanca Cruz, Principal

Resources for students of all ages

Taken from Khan Academy:

These schedules are meant to be templates that you could adopt as is or copy and modify to better suit the needs of your children, classroom or district. As you see in the schedules below, Khan Academy does have self-paced, interactive content--exercises, videos and articles--for students in every grade and in most major subject areas. It is all free and non-commercial...Teachers and parents can also use our teacher tools to monitor progress and assign specific work.  This could be made even more powerful if it is complemented with Google Hangout, Zoom or Skype video conference sessions with teachers and classmates. For example, teachers can hold video conference “office hours” during the day where students can go to get questions answers and teachers can monitor student progress on goals. The video conference office hours could also be done by parent volunteers or older students (different parents can choose to “cover” different parts of the day or different subjects based on their expertise). We are also having daily (weekdays) 9am PST/12 EST live streams on Facebook and YouTube for students, parents and teachers navigating school closures.


Go here if you have general questions about how to use Khan Academy as a teacher or parent.


Go here for teachers resources (videos and articles) to understand Khan Academy generally and how to get your class set up.


Student schedules:

And here’s a little inspiration.

Preschool, kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade



8am - 9am

Breakfast/Get ready (Yes. Change out of PJs)

9am - 9:30am

Khan Academy Kids (ideally doing it while sitting next to a parent or older sibling giving them positive feedback for effort). Khan Academy kids starts at the basics of letters, numbers, and social emotional learning and goes through the first grade standards in math, reading, writing and social emotional learning.



For students with stronger literacy and motor skills:

Khan Academy  Kindergarten, 1st grade and  2nd grade math can be appropriate. Ideally a parent or older sibling sits next to them while doing this. One practice that we’ve seen teachers use to great effect is to have all students start on Kindergarten and then move to 1st grade, 2nd grade, etc. This helps ensure that older students are filling in any knowledge gaps that may have accumulated. It also helps build momentum and confidence.


Course challenges and unit tests can be used to accelerate through material. For students with minimal gaps, they should be able to get through a previous year’s content in 1-3 hours.

9:30am - 10am

Play. Ideally outside if weather permits.

10am - 10:30 am

Reading time. Ideally this would be time to read next to a parent or sibling. If students are ready, they can read on their own.


Suggested books (by reading level):


10:30am - 11:20am

Break. Ideally run around and play outside. Have a snack.

11:20am - 12pm

Writing practice

  • Write and illustrate a story about someone having a funny adventure when they stay home sick.
  • Draw a picture of what you think a virus looks like. Tell about the different parts and how you think they work.

12pm - 1pm

Lunch - Listen to an educational podcast! Try Wow in the World! If you like science, Stories Podcast or Circle Round to hear a story, or Noodle Loaf to learn about music!


Relax, go outside, play, time with family.


Lights out, time to sleep!






Grades 3 - 5



8am - 9am

Breakfast/Get ready for an awesome day! And yes, change out of PJs :)

9am - 9:40am

Assuming you’ve gotten a good night of sleep, your thinking will be sharpest in the morning so let’s start the day strong with some math! Whoo hoo!


Khan Academy math practice has got your back. Depending on your confidence and grade level, one of the following courses are likely good for you:


One practice that we’ve seen teachers and students use to great effect is to start, regardless of age, on Kindergarten and then move to 1st grade, 2nd grade, etc.


Course challenges and unit tests can be used to accelerate through material. If you don’t have too many gaps, you should be able to get through a previous year’s content in 1-3 hours. If you do have gaps, it may take a bit longer, but that is good!  This is your chance to fill in those gaps that might otherwise hold you back in the future.

You’ll see that if you are able to put in at least a solid 30 minutes a day of math practice and keep leveling up skills, you’ll see big gains and, most importantly, really see the world in new and exciting ways!


One you are at your grade level, try to set a goal of leveling up at least 3 skills a week.

9:40am - 10am

Play. Ideally play outside. Get that heart pumping.

10am - 10:30 am

We just released the first version of reading comprehension practice on Khan Academy. It is grouped by grade level:


We recommend starting at your grade level and doing 1-2 practice sets per day (or 10 practice sets per week). This should take about 10-20 minutes per day.  If you find it difficult, completely okay to start at an earlier grade level. Likewise, if you find the passages and questions to be easy, feel free to move to higher grade levels.

10:30am - 11am

Silent reading. Curl up with a favorite book or magazine. Here is a great list of titles that you might want to get your hands on:

11am - 11:20am

Break/walk/play. Try to get that heart pumping again!

11:20am - 11:40am

Khan Academy Grammar:


Recommend starting by taking the course challenge a few times to figure out what you know and don’t know.


11:40 am - 12pm

Journaling/writing. Things to write about/prompts:

  • Write a funny or exciting adventure story about what happens when school is closed.
  • What are you excited or worried about?
  • Write a letter to yourself 10 years in the future. What do you want to tell your future self?
  • How do you think the world will be different after the novel corona virus?

12pm - 1pm

Lunch -  Listen to an educational podcast! Try Brains On! If you like science, Forever Ago if you like history, or Story Pirates to hear funny stories written by kids.




Programming computers is far more fun and creative than you probably ever imagined. Both these resources start by creating fun cartoons and animations and work your way up to creating fun games that your friends can play.

Khan Academy math practice. Depending on level, one of the following courses are likely appropriate:


One practice that we’ve seen teachers and students use to great effect is to start, regardless of age, on Kindergarten and then move to 1st grade, 2nd grade, etc.


Course challenges and unit tests can be used to accelerate through material. If you don’t have too many gaps, you should be able to get through a previous year’s content in 1-3 hours. If you do have gaps, it may take a bit longer, but that is good!  This is your chance to fill in those gaps that might otherwise hold you back in the future.

Recommend starting by taking the course challenge a few times to figure out what you know and don’t know.



Things to write about/prompts:

  • Write a letter to yourself 10 years in the future. What do you want to tell your future self?
  • How do you think the world will be different after the novel coronavirus?
