PVMS Friday/Pre-Winter Break Update - 12/18/2020

PVMS Tiger News

Friday, December 18, 2020

Happy Friday Tigers! I can hardly believe we are closing out our first semester of the 2020-2021 school year today! I am incredibly humbled by our school community's collective willingness to make sure that LEARNING STILL MATTERS regardless of COVID and the strangeness and change that 2020 has brought about. Thank you for your partnership and willingness to support OUR TIGERS, for giving us grace and feedback as we modernize the Thinking Classroom, and for being our teachers' greatest fans as they knocked it out of the park this first semester. 



Important upcoming Dates: 

December 21, 2020 - January 1, 2021 - Winter Break
January 5, 2021 - Remote learning resumes for all students (semester 2 schedule begins this day( 
January 7, 2021- Grades are due for 1st semester
January 12, 2021 - Projected return to in person learning for those families that have chosen that option
There will be a change in schedule expectations for our blended learners on their remote days occurring upon our return. Our hope with this change is that we are able to increase student participation on their remote days in order to progress appropriately on our in person days. There will be more information as well as schedules in upcoming Tiger News.

Please check out our Facebook page for holiday messages from each of our teaching teams and please follow us on Facebook if you have not already done so! May you find peace during this holiday season and comfort in those close to your hearts. From all of us at PVMS, we wish you a restful and blessed Winter Break.

Our office will be closed during the winter break. Responses to emails and phone calls will be delayed during this time.

PVMS School Schedules for December 1, 2020 - January 12, 2021

Please note that during the window of December 1, 2020 - January 11, 2021 all students will be learning remotely. Students will continue to learn NEW grade-level content during this time and are expected to be fully engaged in all their classes. Semester grades will still be earned through-out this time frame. 

Please help your student be successful by setting up a quiet work space where they can learn uninterrupted from 8:00 am-4:32 pm. 

If your student is already a full online (4 days a week) student their schedule will remain the same. If your student is a blended learner please look below for their grade-level schedule and have them follow it with fidelity Tuesday-Friday during our remote learning window. Attendance will be taken for all students every class, every day. In order to be marked present, we MUST SEE your student on camera. Your student must be logged in on time and stay in the google meet until the teacher dismisses them for the day. 

From December 1, 2020 to January 11th, 2021 all 27J schools will be operating fully remote. Students that are currently enrolled in our online program will continue their schedule with no changes. Students that are enrolled in our blended learning program will follow the following modified schedules. They will have synchronous classes everyday and attendance is required for these classes.  Electives classes will remain on the current schedule. 

Schedules for blended learned can be found here.
