Good afternoon Keppel Academy Families, I want to advise you that we were informed today of a posting on Instagram from more than a month ago referencing potential gun violence on our campus. We have thoroughly investigated this allegation and have found there to be no credible risk to our students and staff. We will continue to be vigilant as safety is our top priority. Please speak with your child to reinforce that it is imperative to report any real or perceived threats immediately to any adult on campus as soon as the child becomes aware. Should your child need support in any way, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or me. Sincerely, Mrs. Crawford, Principal (661)944-2152 Office —- 12 de mayo de 2022 Buenas tardes familias de la Academia Keppel, Quiero informarles de que hemos sido informados hoy de una publicación en Instagram de hace más de un mes que hacía referencia a una posible violencia con armas de fuego en nuestra escuela. Hemos investigado a fondo esta alegación y hemos encontrado que no hay ningún riesgo creíble para nuestros estudiantes y personal. Seguiremos vigilando, ya que la seguridad es nuestra máxima prioridad. Por favor, hable con su hijo/a para reforzar que es imperativo informar de cualquier amenaza real o percibida inmediatamente a cualquier adulto en la escuela tan pronto como el niño se da cuenta. Si su hijo/a necesita apoyo de alguna manera, no dude en ponerse en contacto con el/la maestro/a de su hijo/a o conmigo. Sinceramente, Sra. Crawford, Directora (661) 944-2152 Oficina

NO CHANGE TO START TIMES IN KEPPEL IN 2022-23: Keppel schools will not change the start times in the upcoming year. Based on Bill No. 328, instruction in California must start after 8:00 a.m. for middle schools and after 8:30 a.m. in high schools next school year. All schools in Keppel already have start times after 8:00 a.m. so there is no need for any changes to the bell schedule.

MASKING MANDATE TO BE LIFTED As of Saturday, March 12, 2022, indoor masking in TK-12 schools will no longer be required for students and staff. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals are included in the removal of the masking requirement. The Los Angeles Department of Public Health aligned masking guidance to the California Department of Public Health criteria, shifting masking to “…strongly recommending indoor masking at childcare sites and TK-12 schools.” Staff and students in Keppel schools will be able to be unmasked beginning Monday, March 14, 2022. However, if another surge or severe variant is encountered, actions may be reinstated by State and County officials to protect the health and safety of individuals.

Many of you may have seen the news and understand that California is slated to lift the mask mandate in schools later this month. All Superintendents in Los Angeles County have a meeting tomorrow, March 1st, with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the Los Angeles County Office of Education staff, in which we will hear and discuss the newest information on masking. As soon as the district receives clarification based on the CDC, State, and County's information, we will communicate the changes to students’ families. We are hopeful to have information to share by this Wednesday. Thank you for your continued patience as we endeavor to keep our students, their families, and our staff safe as we continue “Opening Doors to Infinite Possibilities" in Keppel. Sincerely, Dr. Cardenas (Chief Door Opener/Superintendent)
