Teachers will be working from home, and many will be phone conferencing with you during your previously dedicated time. If your child’s teacher did not send home a report card already, they will email you a copy of your child’s report card by March 20th. If you have any questions regarding report cards or conferences, please contact your child’s teacher.
While at home, we encourage children to READ, READ, READ. A great way to practice writing is to keep a journal and to write letters to family and friends.
Students have access to their various computer programs. Here are some ideas for keeping kids happy and busy during this time. Also, students have at-home access to the computer programs they use at school. For Achieve3000 (2nd-6th), Smarty Ants (1st and some 2nd & 3rd), and Imagine Learning English and Imagine Learning Espanol, go to the CVESD students page. If using a tablet, many of the programs have a free app you can download.
CVESD has posted some helpful information about the district’s response and about staying safe during the pandemic on the district website.
Updates about school closures will be sent out via the CVESD messaging system, so please ensure we have your correct phone number and email on file. Let us know if there are any family members or care providers you would like added to our distribution list. Text YES to 67587 to receive all CVESD and Loma Verde info via text message.
Stay safe, healthy, and calm. We will see you all on April 6th!
