JL Update: June 12, 2020

Hello Juarez-Lincoln families,

I hope everyone is enjoying the first week of summer break.

CVESD is finalizing plans for the 2020-21 school year. At this time, CVESD has targeted Monday, August 31, as the date students will begin school. Rest assured that our school district is currently working on safety protocols to ensure our schools are ready to safely re-open.

At Juarez-Lincoln, we believe Black Lives Matter. We are dedicated to embodying this truth in our words and our actions. We are listening and learning so we can make tangible change in our community and in the world.

Thank you everyone and have a relaxing summer break.

Mr. Pollack, Principal

Hello Juarez-Lincoln families,

I hope everyone’s summer break is off to a healthy start.

I wanted to share my appreciation for everyone’s collective efforts in adapting to school closures this school year.  Though school closures have caused unprecedented changes in many of our lives, I have heard many success stories of new and innovative ways teachers and students connected to keep learning alive and well. Thanks again to teachers, parents, and students for working as partners as we overcome this pandemic together.

Moving forward, we still do not have the exact return date for the 2020-2021 school year.  This topic will be addressed at the upcoming June CVESD Board meeting.  Once we have that date and other important information, I will communicate it to the Juarez-Lincoln community via School Messenger and on our website, www.JuarezLincolnSchool.com.

We Need Your Input: Parent Survey on Distance Learning Plan and School Reopening

With the current school year winding down under distance learning, plans for the next school year are being developed with a number of possible reopening plans under consideration.

The purpose of this SURVEY is to measure your experience and the experience of your child(ren) this 2019-20 academic year, and to assist schools in planning for the 2020-21 school year. The survey takes just a few minutes. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hello Juarez-Lincoln families.

I hope everyone is enjoying the long three-day weekend.  In honor of Memorial Day, we’d like to acknowledge the courage and legacies of the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military.

We are almost now at the end of the school year and in week 8 of Distance Learning!  Our continued goal is to keep student learning alive and well until health officials determine that our school is safe to reopen. We will continue providing access to flexible academic opportunities to  extent possible this week through Distance Learning.

What next?

There are many questions related to what learning may look like at Juarez-Lincoln next year as we strive to safely overcome the pandemic. You may be wondering when the next school year will begin. Will it begin in July? August? September? You may be wondering what school and learning will look like.  

Our school district leadership is currently working with multiple stakeholders to establish guidelines in key areas so that our schools can safely reopen.  Some of these areas include, school calendars, daily schedules, social-emotional wellness, safety guidelines, budget, and blended learning approaches.  

As this important information becomes available, I will share it via School Messenger email and on our school website.  You can visit our website and sign up for our blog at JuarezLincolnSchool.com.
