***Valentines Exchange Update***

We just got word late last week that the County of San Diego WILL allow Valentine's Day Card exchanges! We are SOOOO excited for this tiny piece of normalcy!

Here are the rules and they must be strictly enforced.

Hybrid AM/PM Cohorts In-Person Learning

-All Valentines are due to your child's classroom by Tuesday, February 9th.

(We will not accept late Valentines)

-Students will "exchange" Valentines on February 9th, and they will be placed in the recipient's Valentine's bag for safe keeping.

-The valentine cards will stay overnight for quarantine in their classrooms.

-Valentines will be sent home with students on Thursday, February 11th.


BRIDGES Online Learning Families-

-turn Valentines into your homeschool's office SSES/VES by Feb 9th.

We will sort and organize for you.

Pick up from SSES/VES office on 2/11 or 2/12


Basic Rules:

-Late Valentine cards will not be accepted.

-We will send home reminders to parents about the due dates of the Valentines, but we will be strict about deadlines for safety reasons.

-If you choose to participate, you must bring enough Valentines for the entire class (AM/PM cohorts are 1 class)

-See your teacher's newsletter for additional information

-No food is allowed in the Valentines

**For New to School In Person Students ONLY** CUSD Parent/Guardian Health and Safety Agreement for In-Person Instruction

CUSD Parent/Guardian Health and Safety Agreement for In-Person Instruction


MOST IMPORTANT: Safety Agreement MUST be handed in, in person, on the first day that your student returns on February 1st. If you already filled this out in October, you will NOT need to fill this out again.


We will be collecting signed forms at the gates. We will have additional copies onhand. To avoid congregation, we advise printing and signing BEFORE you arrive at school. If home printer is not avaiaible, we will have additional copies in front of school.


Inorder for your student to be allowed in school on the 1st day back, they MUST have this form filled out by an adult in the home and handed in at the gates. This form will only need to be filled out ONCE, and is your committment to check daily for symptoms before heading to school.


Link to Form: CUSD Parent/Guardian Health and Safety Agreement for In-Person Instruction.


Once your student arrives at school, the school will do visual wellness checks when students walk through the gate, and teachers will continue to monitor for symptoms throughout the day. Details below for information on our "decision tree" below.

No Place for Hate

No Place For Hate

NO PLACE FOR HATE (NPFH) UPDATE AND INFORMATION:


No Place For Hate was founded in 1913 by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to stop the defamation of Jewish People and secure justice and fair treatment for all. Today, the NPFH program is used across the country to help school districts create a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone. Coronado Unified School District has committed to join this movement and a group of our Village Explorers are proud to be the first committee members to help kick it off. Our NPFH committee includes students, parents, and staff members. We are excited to use our talents and passion to bring awareness, advocacy, and empowerment to ALL students at Village.


Last week, committee members made posters to promote the NPFH program. These posters were then displayed throughout our campus. On the week of February 1st, teachers will show a brief power point presentation. The Power Point includes an explanation of what the NPFH program is and a reminder of the NPFH pledge. The key focus of the power point is to show them the picture montage of the posters. Click the play button underneath the picture below the picture to check it out! A special thanks to Grant McGuire, Caroline Foster, Santiago Zavala, Tyler Garson, Ellie King, and Keanna Prentiss for making these wonderful posters! To help spread awareness and action towards being a part of a community that is welcoming and inclusive, we encourage you to talk with family and community members about the message on these posters.

Here is a video that shares a little more about No Place for Hate:

Here is a good video to play to further explain what the pledge is about. Village students who are on the committee will be making their own videos to share.

This video also shows a good example of what it looks like to be committed to being kind to everyone and showing that we are committing to be a school that has no place for hate.

Counselor's Corner

HAPPY MINUTE UPDATE AND INFORMATION:

We are excited that students are able to go back to in person learning! Don’t forget that we are offering Happy Minute for grades 4th and 5th. (Due to little or no attendance, Happy Minute for 2nd and 3rd grade will be put on hold until future notice.)

Happy Minute is a semi structured peer cyber social weekly event. The kids will engage in socializing activities and just get to know each other in a low stress, monitored environment. We have organized a few games, but will also let the students set the pace and conversation topics.

We adjust the Happy Minute schedule to accommodate Bridge and the in person learning schedules. Therefore, the Happy Minute schedule will return to 11:00-11:45 on Tuesdays starting on the week of February 1st! Below is the link 😊
