We are getting closer to the start of our 2020-2021 school year and additional details are ready to be shared. Thank you so much for your partnership, patience, and flexibility. We are so excited to meet all the new faces and say hello to old friends.
If your child is in third grade their laptop will be distributed on the first day of school between 10:00 - 11:00 am during our materials pick up. Please make an appointment with the office if you are unavailable for the first day of school materials pick up (see schedule below).
Any student who needs help with their district device at any time should make an appointment via https://support.lvusd.org/ to be ready for August 19th.
Dual Virtual and On-Campus (Distance Learning)
We were able to delineate the specifics in our first Café y conversaciones tonight. The video is included below for your review and there are a few key takeaways. We are focused on consistency and quality. The virtual academy classes will plan, facilitate, and follow the same schedule as our "distance learning" counterparts. Essentially, the virtual academy classes exist within our Sumac program, and the Spanish instruction, minutes, and supports will be consistent across classes. The major shift would occur if/when we come back to on-campus learning and then virtual academy classes will continue to follow the remote learning plan.
Class Lists and Welcome Letters
Class lists will be posted on ParentSquare on Tuesday, August 18th at 4:30 pm. Directly following the posting of our class lists, teachers will post a welcome letter for their students. The welcome letter will include their schedule for the first day and week and include all necessary links. Teachers will post communication weekly and monthly for their classes. All classes will have a whole group welcome Zoom on the first day of school at 8:15 AM.
In the first couple of weeks, we are focused on building relationships and Zoom stamina. Please know your child's teacher will be facilitating small group sessions the first Thursday and Friday to introduce his or her self and to get to know you, your child, and your goals for this year better. Sign-ups will be posted in their welcome letter.
First Days of Schoool & Student Materials Drive Thru Pick up
All classes will hold their first welcome virtual meeting at
8:15 am on Wednesday, August 19th. Links will be sent in the teacher welcome letters on Tuesday. Afterward, please join us for the student drive through materials pick up. Meet your child's teacher, get a picture, and your necessary academic materials for distance learning success. Please only come in cars to practice safe social distancing, wear a mask, and have your child on the passenger side.
Supply lists are attached to this post.
