LVJUSD Reopening Plan

Parents of students in grades TK-12 received communication about LVJUSD's intent to offer in-person learning at the start of Trimester 3 on March 10, 2021 for all grade levels. Parents also received a survey for each student asking for a commitment to transition to in-person learning or remain in distance learning for Trimester 3.

Elementary students were asked to commit to one of the following:

  • In-person learning
  • Distance learning
  • Follow their teacher regardless of their teacher's assignment to in-person or distance learning

Please make sure you complete the survey for each of your children so that we can plan classes when we reopen.


To learn more about the district reopening plan please check the district website.

Habit 5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood

This month we will be learning about Habit 5, Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood. Our fabulous first graders will be presenting the Monday Morning Announcements. Here students learn about listening carefully before making a decision about something. They also learn to look at things from another's perspective.

New Friday Announcements and Recognitions

Today we started Friday Announcements and Recognitions with the help of our leadership students. Each Friday I will spotlight a few students for great work in their classroom, either during one of my observations or from their classroom teacher.

Attendance

The criteria for attendance during distance learning is:

1. Log into class meetings each day.

2. The camera is kept on during all instruction.

3. Students are engaged in lessons and responding to the teacher.

4. Assignments are submitted, either electronically or returned to school.

Students failing to meet these criteria may be marked absent.

Attendance greatly affects student learning. Students who have many absences suffer gaps in their learning and are not prepared for the next grade level. Excessive absences can result in retention. Please make sure that your student follows the distance learning criteria, so that they are prepared to move on to the next grade.

PTO Meeting

We had a PTO meeting last night and discussed different ideas for fundraisers. We are looking for new board members as our current president and vice president will no longer have students at Marylin next year. Check out our new instagram account @marylin_avenue_pto. If you have ideas for fundraisers or are interested in running for the PTO board next year contact marylinavenuepto@gmail.com or dnathanson@lvjusd.org. Our next meeting will be March 4 at 5:00 via Googlemeet.
