Hello Cypress Families,

These times continue to be challenging for all of us but all of us are still collaborating, cooperating, creating, caring, sharing and being COURAGEOUS as best we can! We do not know when we will resume classes and Afterschool at Cypress. So far we will be closed until June 5, 2020 but conditions remain fluid and we will continue to provide weekly updates every Friday.

Nate, Joe and I worked this Spring Break on negotiating the new rates for 2020-2021, and worked on the School, Afterschool and BOOST budgets for 2020-2021.

Cypress School staff and therapists are hoping that our team solutions for our distance learning are working for your child and family. Laura and Nate will lead an all family ZOOM meeting this Monday, April 13 at 2:30pm. If you haven’t signed up for ZOOM, please access the Zoom.us website and sign up for free. Get your family to help or call your teacher for support in accessing this remarkable technology.

Each teacher has organized distance learning options to meet you and your child’s needs. If you are having any difficulty accessing this material feel free to contact your teacher, therapists, and/or me at 415-720-9328 or Assistant Director Nate Yates at 415-867-2881.

All of our therapists are available to receive emails, text and/or Facetime/Zoom. Most of our therapists have children so they are scrambling to figure out how to support their students and families, so please be patient. Again, if you are having any difficulty accessing your therapist(s), please connect with your classroom teacher immediately.

We will continue the fabulous ZOOM Music class with Dominic Bianco, please join in 🙂 Domenic will be doing music Monday, Wednesday, Friday.
