Live Bell

Help for students to keep track of their schedule during the day.

Attendance matters during remote learning!

New calls and emails will be made starting Monday, January 11th 2021, to inform families of students who have missed 7 or more class periods for the previous week. This is just an attempt to increase communication and partnership with parents, not a punitive measure. Attendance is important to the success of our students and we want ot help to remove barriers for students and families with these contacts.


Students are in attendance when they make contact with a teacher, access Canvas within 24 hours on school days, or attend their class Zoom sessions that are posted on their teachers respective Canvas pages. If there is no contact or access, it will be counted as an absence, and you will receive a phone call, email, and text message. If your child performs one of these actions and an attendance message is sent in error, please let us know.


Messages will be sent around 4:45 p.m. for the previous school day and on Mondays if a student did not participate on the previous Friday. Absences can be excused by notifying the school within three days. To excuse an absence, you can call 360-313-4220, email skyview.attendance@vansd.org or enter the absence in your Family Access account. You have 3 days to excuse an absence. Excusable reasons - Health Care Appointment, Illness, Family Activity, Family Emergency, Pre-Arranged Absence. You can check Skyward Parent Access to see what class is marked Unexcused.


In order for your student NOT to be marked absent for a period -


A- attend ZOOM class; and/or

B- log on to CANVAS for class that day; and/or

C- connect with the teacher

ATHLETICS

Fall Sports Update

Under the guidance of the WIAA, GSHL will be competing in Cross Country, Boys Tennis and Boys Golf starting Feb. 1. Students will need to be cleared through Family ID in order to participate in any sports. Football, Volleyball, Girls Soccer and Slow Pitch sports will start practicing with their teams but are considered moderate and high Risk. The phases outlined in the Roadmap to Recovery issued by the state requires Clark County to be in phase 2 for the start of competition in moderate and high risk Fall sports. In order for Clark County to reach phase 2 we must meet all four metrics set by the state. Hopefully we will reach those metrics soon and be able to compete in all Fall sports this year.

Linked is a letter that was sent out by GSHL that explains the contingency plans that have been developed in case the remainder of Fall sports aren't able to start by Feb. 1 (GSHL Letter)

Please make sure to be up to date with your physicals so there is no delay in getting cleared and participating this season. Vancouver School District will be waiving all ASB and athletic fees for the 2020-2021 sports season.

​ROLL STORM!
Big picture
With the sports season scheduled to start on Feb. 1, if you need to get a physical now would be the time to start making plans to have that done before the start of the season. We will be sending an email to all athletes we have on file who need a physical this year. If you have any questions please email Kim.Anthony@vansd.org.

Men's Soccer is getting started!

Beginning Monday, Oct 6, VPS will be allowing coaches to work with small "pods" of student-athletes in alignment with WIAA guidelines for Phase 2 of Washington's Safe Start plan. This is a unique opportunity for our athletic programs to lead and demonstrate how students can safely return to some form of in-person activities in a responsible and safe manner. Listed below are documents needed for participation and a description of the guidelines that will be followed. Skyview Athletics is thankful for the opportunity to connect with our athletes during these times.


  • Students will need to complete and turn in the COVID Screening and Waiver Form prior to participating.

  • Coaches and student-athletes will need to strictly adhere to the COVID Workout Guidelines.

  • Coaches will also screen student-athletes each day for COVID symptoms and take and record temperatures.

  • All activities and workouts must occur outside of regular school hours so that there is no disruption to classes.

  • This is entirely voluntary for both coaches and students.
