Continuous Learning Plans for April

Our second round of continuous learning began on Monday, April 13th.

If your child has been completing work digitally, the next week's lessons will be available via Canvas by 2:00 p.m. each Friday. For example, the assignments for the week of April 20th were available by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, April 17th.

If your child has been completing work via packet, nearly all of you have picked up the second set of packets which contains the 9 lessons to be completed by May 1st. Some of you picked up the second packet, but still need to return your child's first packet. The Vienna-Finley office is open every Monday-Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. or you may call VFES to make alternate arrangements if you are unable to get to the school during these hours.

Teachers will continue to be available to answer questions for all students via phone/email from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from April 20th through May 1st.

Meals are available every Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. until noon at each of the six Scott 2 schools. Food is also available from 11:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at 13 remote sites throughout the county. A map is located on the Scott 2 website as well as the Vienna-Finley Facebook page.

Please call the VFES office at (812) 752-8925 if you have any questions.

Continuous Learning Grades

Scott 2 students in grades K-8 will be graded on a pass/fail basis for the last quarter of the school year. Teachers will enter a weekly score for each subject area from their continuous learning work. Students will earn a 10, 8, 6, or 0 based on the amount of engagement they demonstrate related to completing their assigned tasks each week.

Scores will be entered in Harmony each week for students who are completing work digitally.

Scores will be entered in Harmony the week after our periodic packet pick up/drop off for students who are completing work via paper/pencil.

The VFES Walk-a-thon has been postponed until a later date (possibly in the fall).

If you have collected money for the Walk-a-thon, you can hold it until registration dates prior to the 2020-2021 school year. PTO representatives will have a table at registration and will be available to collect the money at that time.

PTO officers are in contact with the online donation company to get those funds rolled over to the new Walk-a-thon date.
