All Schools Parenting Empowerment Network (ASPEN) Presentation
Please join us for a special presentation and opportunity to help the youth in our community continue to connect with those they know and care for in situations where alternate placement from their home is necessary. On February 13th, from 3:30-4:30 in Blue Forum, Kathy Hannemann, retired Assistant Superintendent for Atascadero United and Foster Youth advocate, will be providing information on ASPEN. She will be giving attendees direction on how to become a safe option for a child you already know in the event that he/she might need to be temporarily placed in an alternate living situation. I have deep respect for Kathy, her work and expertise. My husband and I have been inspired by this program and will be taking the steps to register ourselves as options for children who know us and might identify us as a safe place to go during a turbulent time. I encourage you to join us in learning about ASPEN and hope to see you in Blue Forum on the 13th.

Bellevue Santa Fe’s Renovation Project
The long-awaited and much-needed BSFCS construction and renovation project is ramping up. The funding has been secured through measure “D” and a grant from the State of California. The plans have been approved by the Department of State Architect (DSA). A general contractor has been selected (Wysong Construction). Three very big hurdles cleared!
While there are many undertakings going on behind the scenes, there are two that will directly affect the school. The first is the placement of twelve c-train storage units. The storage units will be placed on the grass field along the fence line by the creek. This will encroach on some of the play area on the grass field. The c-trains will serve as temporary storage until we are allowed to move back into the new classrooms and the renovated main building. Basically, every space at the school will need to be emptied before construction begins. Movers will be onsite over spring break and after school gets out for the summer to assist teachers and staff. On June 16 Wysong Construction will take over the entire site. The c-trains are scheduled to be delivered April 3.
The other action that will be taking place is the installation of safety fencing along the top of the berm at the back of the garden. This safety fencing will create a staging area in the open field for the contractor to stage equipment. The safety fencing will also separate this staging area from the rest of the school. When it is installed the school will lose the overflow parking in the open field which will reduce parking availability. It is anticipated that the fencing will go up sometime in the spring, possibly around May.
More information concerning the construction and renovation project will be provided as we receive it from the district and contractor.
