Continuous Learning Plans for May

Our second round of continuous learning ended today. Our final round will be May 4th through May 20th.

Packet pick up and drop off will take place next Monday, May 4th and Tuesday, May 5th from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. As a reminder, we are using Door #2 in the car line for packet distribution and collection. If these days/times are not feasible for your family due to work schedules, etc, please call the VFES office so we can make other arrangements.

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 May 4th were available by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 1st. Please make sure you are using your time wisely during these final two and a half weeks of school because we are collecting iPads on May 21st and 22nd.

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 weekday from May 4th through May 20th.

Meals are also 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 packets are released to the teachers following 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.
