Dear Families,

Greetings from V. B. Glencoe Charter School!


We hope you and your families are safe and healthy. As you are aware, the number of COVID 19 cases continue to rise in our area. I am pleased to report that at this moment we do not have any positive cases at V. B. Glencoe Charter, although we do have a few students and a staff member in quarantine due to exposure outside of school.


In the event that Governor Edwards transitions the state back to Phase 2 in the future, it is important to know that we have been following and continue to follow all Phase 2 guidance, including limited class sizes and safety protocols. If a Phase 2 mandate is issued we will need to reduce capacity on our school buses; however, all other regular school operations can remain in effect. We will continue to monitor cases in our area and be in direct conversations with our local and state officials.


On another note, we have had quite a few changes since our last newsletter. On October 15 we welcomed over 100 virtual students back to campus as we amended our reopening plan due to the Phase 3 proclamation. In addition, we moved to a 5 day in-person model for all grades Pre-K through 10th grade. This change has gone very well. Students quickly learned our procedures for social distancing and personal hygiene. Arrival and dismissal procedures are flowing smoothly.


About forty students are remaining virtual for the remainder of the year. Transitioning to our new learning platforms has gone well. If you are a virtual family, you should be very familiar with our facilitators, Ms. Cindy Lassalle, Mr. Kerry Martin, and Ms. Samantha Bourque. As a reminder, students should be keeping up with lessons daily. An estimated 3-6 hours, depending on the grade level, is expected for success in the program.


I'd like to take this time to thank our teachers, students, and families for being resilient and dedicated to following all protocols to keep our campus safe and for your continued support of our school.


Have a great week and Thanksgiving Holiday!
