Hola a todos,
Mi nombre es Angela Valley. Estoy muy
contenta en anunciarles que el Distrito de
Educacion de Centralia me ha contratado para
ayudar a mejorar la comunicación entre
ustedes los padres y representantes quienes
solamente hablan español y las escuelas de sus
niños. Al mismo tiempo así poder brindar a sus
hijos una mejor educación.
Hasta hoy, cuando ustedes han llamado a la
escuela se han encontrado que en la oficina de
la escuela no hay alguien quien hable español
y es difícil para ustedes comunicar a la escuela
el motivo de su llamada. Por esa razón y para
asegurarse de que ustedes tengan siempre una
persona que habla español, el Distrito de
Educación de Centralia me ha contratado como
intérprete y me ha brindado un teléfono al que
ustedes pueden llamar y hablar conmigo en
español si tienen la necesidad de comunicarse
o tienen preguntas acerca de sus niños o la
A partir de hoy si tienen preguntas o algo que
quieran comunicarle a las escuelas de sus
niños, ustedes pueden llamar al teléfono: 360623-3062. Yo estaré aquí todos los días de
lunes a viernes. Mis horas de trabajo son de
7:30 a.m. a 9:30 a.m. y de las 2:00 p.m. a
4:00p.m. También, si ustedes llaman en otras
horas que no son las horas mencionadas
anteriormente, ustedes pueden dejar un
mensaje y yo los llamaré o contestaré sus
llamadas en mis horas de trabajo. Estaré aquí
esperando y contestando sus llamadas en
español. Luego, yo le comunicaré a la escuela
de sus niños el mensaje o preguntas que
ustedes tienen o el motivo de sus llamadas.
Esperando servirles a todos y por favor llamen
al número 360-269-3458 si tienen preguntas o
