Inclement Weather and Online Learning

Decisions to close school due to inclement weather will continue to be made based on safety and access to learning/school site. While students are all in CDL or enrolled in the WLWV K12 Online Program (WKOP), there is a strong likelihood that school could remain “open” and students can continue learning at home during inclement weather such as snow or ice. When inclement weather includes heavy winds or power outages that affect internet access, there may be a reason to delay or close school depending on the impact and access to online learning.

If the school district closes due to inclement weather, any on-site classes or activities would also be canceled. This includes Limited In-Person Instruction (LII) and co-curricular or evening activities. Any delays or closures will apply to both students in CDL and the WLWV K12 Online Program.

The district will continue to provide communication about the status of school (delay or closure) through FlashAlert and alerts on the district website. We encourage families to sign up for FlashAlert early, and families can always check the district website for the latest information.

Happy Friday!

We have completed forecasting for quarter 3.

In order to try to get a higher and more consistent level of engagement from students, we are implementing a system to help. Each morning, WKOP staff will receive a report outlining how much time each student was actively using FuelEd on the day before. Anyone with less than 60 minutes of activity on the previous day will be marked with an unexcused absence unless an absence has already been reported to the school and entered into our tracking system as an excused absence. At approximately 11:00 AM, families will receive a phone call, email, and perhaps text message if a student was marked as an unexcused absence on the day before. We realize that there are other ways (besides FuelEd) that students may engage in their education. If you get such a notification and there were other circumstances, you can contact your school office, or Julie Nesbit, nesbitj@wlwv.k12.or.us to have the data updated. Please understand that these absence markings do not directly impact your student's grade - your student will not be punished for being absent. However, we believe that this will provide a higher awareness of your student's engagement day-to-day. Note that if you know your child will not be able to engage on a given school day, you can access ParentVUE and report that attendance pro-actively. This will prevent a notification at 11:00 that day.


Learning Coach Homework

Confirm your student is caught up with all of their assignments. Reach out to teachers if you have any questions.


Counselor’s Message

We've had quite the start to 2021... If you're raising a family, the past year has created a wave of change that is often hard to ride. How are you doing? Are you taking time to nurture your own needs? It can become a quick and easy pattern of behavior to slip into tending to others before tending to one's self. As a parent myself, I try to carve out time to read a real book and not just listen to an audio book or read on a screen. It's harder than it sounds! Saving space to sit in silence with zero distractions seems to be all the more challenging while living in this time of Covid, all cozied up at home.

Here are a few links that give quick and simple reminders for parents/grandparents/guardians that you're not alone, caring for yourself is important, and small mindset shifts can make a big difference:

Self-Care Is Possible During a Pandemic

Trauma-Informed Care; Self-Care During the Covid Crisis

*Personal favorite* Preventing Parent Burnout

In case you're interested, this is the book I am reading for personal and professional purposes. It's fascinating... : https://www.5lovelanguages.com/screenkids/

If you ever need to chat about your children or just provide parental insight around how we can better serve your family, please don't hesitate to reach out. gwink@wlwv.k12.or.us.

Be well.

Ms. Gwin

Dear Online Families,


TWO WEEKS LEFT IN THE FIRST SEMESTER

I can’t believe that we are almost halfway through the school year! The semester will come to an end on February 4th. There will be no school February 5th as teachers will be using this as a grading day. The new quarter/semester will start on February 8th. We ask that all students have their Q1 and Q2 classes wrapped up by the 4th. Please reach out to teachers if you have questions or need help finishing courses by the end of the term.


QUARTER 3 SCHEDULES

Please check your schedules on Parent/Student Vue and let us know if you see anything amiss. We have been making our way through student schedules adding electives. If your student is missing a course, or you have any questions whatsoever about your student’s schedule, please reach out now. We have plenty of time to get things looking and feeling good for your student by the beginning of quarter 3.


VIRTUAL GAME NIGHT

The student leadership team has been planning a virtual game night that will take place on January 29th from 7-8 pm. Students will have the option of playing four different games that will be taking place in different Zoom rooms. The games that will be played are: Among Us, Bingo, Pictionary, and Kahoot. Students are working hard to organize this event which includes getting prizes donated. If you would like to donate a prize to our event please contact me directly! If your child is interested in attending game night, please have them fill out the following survey so the team can get a sense of who will be participating and what games they would like to play: VIRTUAL GAME NIGHT STUDENT SURVEY.


Thank you for your continued partnership this year,


With gratitude,

Becca
