Update from Ms. Porter, RN

Hello VCS families!


Compliance for your child’s immunizations is so important! The Salud Family Health Center is offering back to school immunizations every Friday by appointment. See the attached flyer for more details.

Attendance

Attendance in every class every day is essential for your child's academic growth. In the event that your child cannot be in class, make sure to call the front desk at 303-691-2384. You will receive an automated phone call in the evening if your child was absent from any classes throughout the day if you do not call in to notify us of the absence. You may email teachers to get make up work, but call the front desk, as well.

Introducing Tools to Students and Families

As we facilitate remote learning at home VCS would like to eliminate as much stress for our Vanguard families as possible. To help us do that we would like you to send an email to msebastiani@vanguardclassical with suggestions of what you feel would be helpful tips for technology topics . Here is a short video to help students use Google Classroom.

A Note from Ms. Sterling, Social Worker

Hello Vanguard Families,

It’s important to have a “healthy” mental health. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being, it affects how we think, feel, and how we handle situations. Here are some tips to help support your child’s mental health during remote learning.

1) Stick to a routine, have your child wake up and go to bed each day at the same time.

2) Validate your child’s feelings, it’s very important that you listen to your child and let them share with you how they are feeling.

3) Stay connected with family and friends. Socializing helps us feel better, you can set up virtual playdates, make weekly phone calls to family and friends.

4) Plan family time activities that you can enjoy together, you can dance together, play games, do a puzzle together, cook together, have a scavenger hunt.

5) Practice self-care as a family. Incorporate some type of exercise, use mindfulness daily.

Social Groups

VCS is excited to share that starting next week the mental health team will be providing social groups for students. This is a great way for students to interact with their peers outside of their classroom and get to know other students and have some fun. If you need any support, or have any concerns for your child please feel free to reach out to the mental health worker.
