Status of Classic Learning

  • Last evening, the VUSD School Board met to discuss reopening plans at the high school level. Ultimately, the Board decided to adopt a two-pronged approach to returning Classic students, beginning on March 8th. Below are preliminary details; more will be shared as we get closer to the 8th.

    Option A: All Classic students back on campus, five days per week

    • All Classic students on campus every day for in-person learning
    • Contingent upon County being in the Orange Tier & approval from state and local health officials.

    Option B: All Classic students on campus one day per week. This option would be exercised if we are not in the Orange Tier by March 8th and/or do not have approval from the health officials for Option A.

    • Students will be split into two groups, based on the alphabetical order of their last name.
    • All students will attend classes virtually three days per week (i.e., Monday, Thursday, Friday).
    • Students in group A will be on campus for in-person instruction on Tuesday; students in group B will learn asynchronously on Tuesday.
    • Students in group B will be on campus for in-person instruction on Wednesday; students in group A will learn asynchronously on Wednesday.

    This information is preliminary, and as more details are sorted out, I will share with our community.

Academic Planning Sessions Were Held this Week

The Counseling Department hosted a series of webinars for grades 9, 10, and 11 that focused entirely on academic plans and course selections for the 2021-2022 school year.

Resources, as well as recordings from each webinar can be found on the Academic Planning webpage.

The deadline to update the academic plan and submit courses selections for the 2021-2022 school year is February 25th.

The Spring term represents a clean slate and new opportunity for success. For students who need some help along the way, we recommend the following resources:

Academic Support:

  • Attend class every day, with camera on
  • Take advantage of teacher support during the class period -- this means speaking up via microphone, a chat message to the teacher, or via email.
  • Make an appointment during office hours. All teachers are available from 2:30-3:00 Mon.-Fri.

Social-Emotional Support:

  • Find low-risk ways to "speak up" and get support by visiting our Social-Emotional webpage
  • Reach out to a trusted adult on campus (teacher, counselor, administrator, staff member). We care about you, and we all know how to point you in the right direction
