Tueday, March 3rd

27J Remote Day Information - 3/9/21

27J Schools has worked with local health providers to ensure that over 1,600, 27J frontline employees receive both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. To accomplish this task, many employees are scheduled to receive their second dose on Monday, March 8. It is estimated that up to 40% - 50% of people who receive the second vaccine dose (Moderna or Pfizer) will experience side effects that may include fatigue, chills, headache, muscle aches and pains, and even a fever. If this percentage holds true, we will not have enough staff to engage fully in in-person learning on Tuesday, March 9. With no way of predicting who or how many will be impacted, and wanting to avoid last minute cancellations, we are asking schools, teachers, and parents to prepare in advance for a district-wide remote learning day on Tuesday, March 9.

What this means for PVMS Tigers: 

If your student is an online learner, nothing changes.
If your student is a blended learner who is in-person Tuesdays / Thursdays (Blue Students) your classes will be live online with your teachers and you will follow your normal schedule. 
If your student is a blended learner who is in-person on Wednesdays and Fridays (Silver Students) your classes will be remote per usual. 


Conference Sign-Up

Parent Teacher Conferences are happening virtually on March 8th.  Each grade-level team will have a celebration time to honor students that have excelled academically and have exemplified our core values. If you would like to sign-up for a conference for your student and have not already been contacted, you can find the links to do so on the following document. Please note there are different links for in-person vs. virtual teams.

Kids Eating Lunch

Our brains need food! Please chat with your TIGER about the importance of eating lunch. We are noticing a larger number of students each day who are choosing to opt out of eating lunch, we predict that this is making learning a little more difficult for them. Please encourage your TIGER to either get a lunch (it is free) or bring a lunch each day. Thank you for your support with this. 



Device Overload 

While we have been concerned for many years now about students’ potential over exposure to electronic devices, the need to monitor this has become even more important this year as they spend a significant amount of their school day learning online. Please take time to check in with your students about their computer and cell phone usage late at night and early in the morning. We are seeing a lot of tired and burnt out students and many are reporting to us that they are staying up late using technology. 



COVID Info to report? 

Korri Stauffer is our PVMS COVID-19 Site Coordinator. Please reach out to her with questions, concerns, or health updates. If your student has symptoms at any point, please contact Ms. Stauffer immediately - it is easier to deal with concerns and keeps students and staff safe the sooner we know about potential illness!

CMAS Testing

The Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) are scheduled to occur from April 12th to 20th. These annual state assessments measure a student's proficiency related to state English Language Arts, math, and science standards. These assessments provide us with invaluable data to help us plan to meet the needs of our students. This data is even more important than ever for us considering all the changes and interruptions that have occurred in the last year - we are excited to see where all of our students are so that we can plan accordingly for their learning in the upcoming school year. Schedules for testing will be shared in March. Virtual students will be tested on selected Mondays in April and Blended Learning students will test on their in-person days. Testing must be completed at PVMS and the state has not approved any remote testing options.
