These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT. More information can be found here: https://ca.p-ebt.org/en/info. The application can be found here: https://ca.p-ebt.org/en/

We know that these events have created heightened anxiety for staff, students, and families. Given this, we are going to offer a free screening of the critically-acclaimed one-hour documentary Angst for any interested member of the LVUSD community. This documentary normalizes conversations about anxiety and helps individuals make connections to their feelings along with strategies to support them. The film is accompanied by a family discussion guide. During the week of May 4th, we invite you to screen the film in your own home with your family. If interested in this opportunity, please view the trailer and register at Community360.me/events.
With the Governor’s guidelines compelling individuals to have their faces covered in public/when around people, our community has a high demand for face coverings. We need you! It’s essential that we mobilize our sewing community to donate and support the increasing demand for face coverings for critical LVUSD staff who are feeding families, as well as local essential workers. If you have fabric and elastic and are interested in learning to make masks to donate go to Community360.me/support and share your email address. A member of our team will reach out to you with further instructions and can even teach you how to make a mask if you need help. We are also taking fabric and elastic donations to help this effort. You’ll also notice on this site that there is an opportunity to have your students and family members upload pictures, letters, and uplifting messages. Local hospitals have requested these for posting in their hallways to lift the spirits of our heroic healthcare workers on the front lines.
Dear LVUSD Families, Earlier today, Governor Newsom announced that all California school campuses will remain physically closed. Importantly, while campuses are closed, school is still in session and distance learning will continue for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Please remember that Spring Break, April 10-17 and Memorial Day, May 25 will still be observed as non-instructional days.
Dear Parents, We are continually updating and adding new resources to our Parent Resources for Online Learning, and have decided to move them to a new easier-to-use site. There you will find resources organized by grade level and topic in a simpler format. To view the new site, you may go to the Parent menu above and select Parent Resources for Online Learning
Dear LVUSD Parents, As I shared in my video message yesterday, LVUSD continues in its commitment to you and the learning, connection, and well-being of your students. In accordance with this approach, as well as the recommendations from state and local authorities, LVUSD is officially extending our distance learning until Friday, May 1st with the hope of a possible return to school on Monday, May 4th. The current modeling of COVID-19 suggests that we need to plan for potential distance learning even beyond that date, but the situation is evolving quickly and we want to be prudent in our monitoring and dismissal decisions. I will continue to send you updates and keep you informed on the latest information.
Dear LVUSD Families, I hope that this message finds you doing well as we prepare for significant changes in our daily lives. Maintaining some sense of community is going to become critically important in the days and weeks ahead for all of our wellbeing. The entire LVUSD team is hard at work creating plans and resources for your children and you. We’ll have much more information in the coming days. Our team wanted to offer the following recommendations as we start the week:
