Happy Friday OPA Hybrid families,
First, I would like to thank all of you for your cooperation and patience during our Champions’
drop-off and pick-up. Over the past month, we have monitored the traffic, and the staff has
worked diligently to refine this process and improve our morning drop-off times. Currently, we
can cycle through all of the morning traffic in 20 minutes or less.

It has been a very exciting week for OPA. On Wednesday, December 3rd, OPA-Saddleback Valley was awarded the first 7-year charter renewal in California! Under the newly adopted AB1505, schools designated by the California Department of Education as High Performing are eligible to receive a 7-year renewal. Therefore, OPA-Saddleback Valley is approved to operate through 2028. OPA-South Orange County is due for renewal in 2024 and will hopefully also be eligible for a 7-year renewal at that time.

Dear OPA Families,
I hope you had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with your loved ones. I am sure this
Thanksgiving was different than others, but will always be thankful for our families, friends and
our health. We thank you in advance for helping us keep everyone safe and
healthy. Please remember to keep your Champion at home if they have any COVID-19
symptoms. If you traveled out of the state/country during the break, we strongly encourage you
to quarantine for 14 days after your return.

Thank you all for your patience, dedication, and support of our OPA champions throughout these difficult times. As I reflect about what I am truly thankful for this season, it is definitely our OPA community. Although there have been many challenges to overcome in 2020, our students have remained focused, engaged, and on track for academic, social, and emotional success. You have all played a tremendous role in ensuring that our champions have the support they need to overcome these incredible obstacles. Thank you for all you do. I can’t express my gratitude enough!

Sunday Message November 15, 2020

I hope you have had a safe and relaxing weekend with your family. On behalf of our SOC staff, I

unprecedented times. We are one

recharge.

It has been a great week at OPA! Students are getting into the swing of thigs with the virtual and hybrid classes and it has been fun to see all of the great learning happening at each campus.

We had a wonderful English Language Advisory Committee meeting on Tuesday evening. Ms. Didion shared information regarding our English Learner program and the different supports available to help our English learners excel academically. Next week at our Board meeting, we are excited to honor our students who have recently been reclassified as English Language Proficient.

I hope you had a safe Halloween with your family! I want to thank all of our families and staff
for following drop-off and pick-up procedures. In the past four in-person days, we have
significantly decreased the amount of time it takes to drop-off and pick-up our Champions. Enrichment classes will resume on November 2nd. Please use this Enrichment/Club link for
more details.
