School Newsletter — January 15th, 2020
Note from the Principal
Dear families of Hazeldale,
Like many of you, I was rather hoping for big fluffy snowflakes resulting in a day of snowman making and hot chocolate with my family at home. Also like many of you, I was hoping not to have that as I know it makes travel so tricky for many, as well as work schedules. I thought we escaped with no slick roads—my personal largest worry for all. But I hear it was very slick at the top of Miller Hill this morning.
While Portland Metro area definitely reacts in a dramatic way to snowflakes in the forecast, it is a good opportunity to make sure you and your family know what the plans are for getting your child safely home in the event of an early closure or buses on snow routes. Hopefully by now you have verified with the school office and your child's teacher, also checking ParentVue, what your early closure plans are. Additionally, if you are wanting a neighbor or friend to pick up your child, you need to have them added to the emergency contact list in Synergy. Have any questions? Call Kathy Cook or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please copy the classroom teacher also.
REPORT CARDS GOING PAPERLESS BEGINNING JANUARY 31st
Report cards will be viewable through ParentVue soon, January 31st. This information has been heavily publicized through BSD Updates and our school newsletter. Our office staff has snail mailed home ParentVue information to all families without an account. Your child's teacher also gave you a copy of the information at Fall Conferences if you didn't have an account. Please make sure you have set this up before January 31st. Please contact your school if you need help setting up or accessing your ParentVUE account or need assistance with a printed copy.
The Beaverton School District is transitioning to electronic report cards for all students. The electronic report cards will be accessed through ParentVUE (mobile and desktop). If you have not set up your ParentVue account, you will need to do that by January 2020.
There are resources and guidance on how to set up a ParentVue account. Please view the FAQ for instructions on setting up your account. There are several benefits to moving to paperless report cards. You will be able to view grades days after grading days, rather than wait up to two weeks for a report card to come by mail or in your child’s backpack. In addition, moving away from paper is environmentally friendly and cost-effective for the District.
Las boletas de calificaciones se enviarán electrónicamente y no en papel
El Distrito Escolar de Beaverton está haciendo la transición a las boletas de calificaciones electrónicas para todos los estudiantes. De ahora en adelante usted podrá obtener las boletas de calificaciones electrónicas a través de la aplicación ParentVUE (por celular y computadora). Si todavía no ha configurado su cuenta de ParentVUE, deberá hacerlo antes de enero de 2020.
Tenemos recursos e instrucciones sobre cómo configurar una cuenta de ParentVue. Por favor consulte la sección de Preguntas Frecuentes donde podrá encontrar esta información.
Hay varios beneficios de solo recibir las boletas de calificaciones de manera electrónica. Usted las podrá ver de tres a cuatro días hábiles después de los días de calificación, en lugar de esperar hasta dos semanas para recibir una boleta de calificaciones por correo o en la mochila de su hijo. Además, deshacerse de la opción de papel ayuda al medio ambiente y es mas económico para el Distrito.
Por favor comuníquese con su escuela si necesita ayuda para configurar o entrar a su cuenta de ParentVUE o si necesita ayuda con una copia impresa. Estaremos compartiendo más información sobre esta transición en las próximas semanas.
