JL Sunday Messenger: Week of May 25-29, 2020

 

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.

JL Update- April 5, 2020

 

Dear Jaurez-Lincoln Families,

Our team misses you greatly and hopes this finds you well. I look forward to the day we are back on campus together.  Please let your children know we miss them, and our staff is so excited to connect with them this week.

Distance Learning
During Quarter 4, due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, CVESD will embark upon a distance learning instructional model for all students until further notice.  To view our District newsletter regarding distance learning & other related items, please CLICK HERE.

Juarez-Lincoln’s goal is to keep student learning alive and well until health officials determine that our school is safe to reopen.  This week (April 6- 10), our teachers will be planning and preparing curriculum for distance learninginstruction.  Teachers will not, however, assign academic work this week.  Distance learning for students will start, to the extent possible, on Monday, April 13.     

This week, your child’s teacher will contact you by email or phone.  It’s important that you reply in a timely manner, as we need to assess the distance learning resources available at your home and confirm that all students are able to communicate with their teachers.     

We’ll strive to provide your child with a quality education in a nurturing, virtual classroom environment during this last quarter of the school year.  Since distance learning is new for both teachers and students, I respectfully ask that you are patient with our instructional team.  Rest assured, we’ll work hard to support you and your child through this new model of learning. 

Lastly, CVESD will not be distributing any digital devices (e.g., laptops) at this time.  However, our teachers will ensure that assignments will be flexible and equitable for all students. 

 

Meal Distribution

The District will resume meal distribution at Juarez-Lincoln and 9 other school sites for much of the week following Spring Break: Tues., April 7 – Friday, April 10.  Meal bags will contain breakfast and lunch servings. District and school staff will start distributing the meal bags at 10 a.m., and will stop once all bags are distributed on a first come, first served basis. Meals are intended for children between the ages of 1 to 18.

As always, thank you for your partnership and support.

 

Warm regards,

-Robert Pollack, Principal
