FVES Weekly Memo, May 11, 2020

Thank you for helping to recognize our amazing staff last week for our Virtual Teacher Appreciation Week! We appreciate you recognizing them for who they are, what they do, and how they love and support your children! 

  • Latest WCPSS COVID Information Please see the latest COVID-19 update from the district HERE. Please note, while school buildings have been ordered closed for the remainder of the year, online learning will continue. Please stay connected with your teachers, the school, and the district.
  • Field Trip Refund Updates| Our school secretary has been busily working to process your student's field trip refund. We hope to begin mailing these in the next few weeks. Please be on the lookout for your check to come in the mail prior to June 1st.
  • School Access and Book Return | With the announcement that school will continue with remote learning through the end of this year, you will eventually need to enter the building to get your child’s items. We are waiting to schedule this day when we have all of the items you will need… including yearbooks that were ordered, as well as end of the year information. The district directive is for this to occur closer to the end of school, so hopefully it will be safer for everyone. Please keep a watch out for this date in a later newsletter.  If you are wondering about returning library books, please hold those and you will be able to return those at the beginning of the 20-21 school year at ANY school or Library!
  • Special Education Information | Our students with IEPs are being supported additionally with their learning from our Special Education team. All students have access to our resources here, have opportunities for support on Google Meets weekly and have access to our Special education teachers. Your teachers have already reached out to you regarding the learning plan, however, if you have questions, please let them know!
  • Student Engagement| We are super proud to report that on week 1, we had 88% of our students engaged in learning. Week 2/3, 93% of our students were engaged in Remote Learning. We are hoping for 100% by the end of this week! Parents, we know that without your support of your child, this engagement would not be possible, so thanks for keeping your child on a schedule, reminding them of their assignments and helping them connect virtually. We hope that you are finding your virtual learning experience as manageable as possible.Our teachers have really tried to streamline by working to ensure that formats are familiar, websites are easy to access and assignments are clear. We know it is not perfect, but please know we are trying, while still hoping to keep our kiddos engaged with meaningful learning that can be fun, whenever possible. Please continue to give us feedback if you have suggestions to make our Remote Learning even better! 

 

Wishing you Well,

Heather Johnson, Principal
