Good Evening Computech Tiger Families,
This is Principal Berrett. I hope you have all enjoyed your 3-day weekend in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. He was a powerful force for good in promoting equity, kindness, and love for another. We would do well to look for ways to improve the world by promoting these values.
As we strive to prepare our students for their future, it is very important that students attend every class and actively participate in their learning. Students, please begin this semester the right way by attending meetings, asking questions, turning in assignments, and when you are able, by unmuting and speaking, and interacting with your teachers and peers in productive ways. Families, please encourage your students to be focused on their learning during the school day, and ask them to check ATLAS for grades and assignments that they are completing to demonstrate their learning. We must work together to be successful, especially over distance learning.
In an effort to support our students and families, we have adjusted our staff page at www.computechstudents.com. This is where families are now able to click on a teacher’s agenda and syllabus link below their picture to view that teacher’s contact information, syllabus, weekly agenda, and office hours. You do not need a password to access this information, as it is public. Please take some time to view the page and view the agendas for the week with your student. There is a brief video on our website under “For Families” and “Tips for Families.”
Tomorrow, Tuesday, January 19th, students will attend odd period classes, 1, 3, 5, and 7. They will be attending even period classes on Wednesday, odd classes on Thursday, and even classes on Friday. As a reminder, next Monday, January 25th, will be the first asynchronous work day that students will have. They will be attending their advisory class from 9 to 9:30am that morning. Students can see their advisory teacher on ATLAS and on their schedule for period 0 advisory for that day. There will be reminders about this next week.
Our 7th grade students will soon be taking the second iReady diagnostic in Math and English. This helps us to monitor learning progress and plan for future instruction. We ask that students give a good effort to complete these in a timely manner, as some of the diagnostic may be assigned to them to work on independently.
Tutor.com is still available through Clever and our ASES After School Program is available through Teams each day between 2:45 and 5:30pm.
Our Tiger Pantry is available to students that have needs, including clothing, hygiene items, and school supplies. That is found on our school website under “For Students.”
To check out books from our Library, students can go to the Library tab on our website, or call or text our librarian, Mrs. Ward, at 559-549-3758. We encourage students to read regularly, as this helps to improve literacy skills.
Our main office is open between 8am and 4pm Monday through Friday. If you are in need of support, you can call us at 457-2640. In the event that you need to visit our office, you are able to park in our new visitor parking lot off Belgravia, directly in front of the office. Please make sure that you conduct a self-health screener prior to coming to campus, and it is helpful if you would call ahead to let us know you are coming.
Our quote of the week from Martin Luther King Jr., “Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?” How are we trying to make the world a better place? Who are we serving and how are we helping others in their lives, and improving ourselves in order to be of greater service? Treat one another with kindness and look for opportunities to learn about others and their stories, and then look for ways to serve others. It will bless your lives and the lives of others, and make this world a better place. Have a great week Tigers!
Good Evening Computech Tiger Families,
This is Principal Berrett. Our Computech Family hopes that you have all had a wonderful winter break and a happy holiday season, though it may have been different than years past. We are happy to welcome you back to the second semester of the school year, even if it is not how we had hoped to resume. We will begin the second semester with all students over distance learning. As a result of the current Covid-19 case rate and the Governor’s direction, we will not have any cohorts of students on campus while the stay at home order is in place.
As was shared prior to the break, our schedules within Fresno Unified have changed, and details of those changes can be found on our website at www.computechstudents.com under General Information and Bells. Mondays we will have advisory meetings for all students from 9-9:30am, and the remainder of the day will be asynchronous independent work for each of your classes. Tuesdays and Thursdays will be odd block schedules and Wednesdays and Fridays will be even block schedules. Our times for our daily schedules have not changed, and will remain the same as the first semester on Tuesday through Friday.
This Monday, January 11th, is a staff professional learning day, so there is no school for students. Students will attend odd period classes, 1, 3, 5, and 7 on Tuesday, January 12th. They will be attending even period classes on Wednesday, odd classes on Thursday, and even classes on Friday. As a reminder, next Monday we observe the holiday honoring Martin Luther King Jr, so there is no school on that Monday.
As we begin this new semester, we encourage students to be engaged, to actively participate in class through use of unmuting and responding online, use of the chat, as well as email. Communication is a critical factor to your success, especially in distance learning. Families, we encourage your partnership with us by checking Atlas for assignments and speaking with your student about their classes, their learning, and their progress. We are in the midst of making adjustments to our staff page on our website to create a more consistent method for viewing weekly agendas and assignments by clicking on each teacher’s image and being able to view their agendas, expectations, and contact information. Be on the lookout for that to be updated during this week.

Our quote of the week from Martin Luther King Jr., “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” With the recent events that have taken place over the last week in society, I would like to remind our Tigers that hate and violence do not solve problems. We can and must be better than what we have seen taking place, and we do so by seeking understanding and knowledge, and by communicating in productive ways. Our school must be a safe place for all of our students and staff. We value all perspectives and voices, and want what is best for all of our Tigers and their families. Though we may have different ideas, we become better when we seek to understand one another and honor and respect one another’s ideas, cultures, beliefs, and perspectives. Have a great week, and welcome back Tigers!
