Big picture

Dear VBL Families,

The Vail Governing Board approved to move all schools in our district to Remote Learning from January 4th- January 22nd. We will be moving temporarily to the remote learning phase immediately following our winter break and plan to return to hybrid on January 25th.

During the remote phase, students will follow the same schedule and have the same class times. The only thing that is changing is their location. We will continue to have social groups on Zoom with Ms. Wrona as well as check-in office hours with teachers for extra help or just to say hi.

Students are expected to follow their schedule Monday - Thursday from home exactly as they are now, including using the Learning Lab time for Edmentum.

Please remind students to be on time for each class with camera and microphone on and follow the same behavior and academic expectations that would be expected if they were here. Our goal is to make this as close to being at school as possible.

Students and parents are assigned and notified if they have re-teach classes from 3:00-3:30 each week through email. Please help your student adapt their schedule when they are assigned re-teach. This is the time students have the opportunity to change their formative grades and learn concepts they are struggling with.

The office will be open by appointment only. Click here to make an appointment.

Thank you for all of your support in this unusual circumstance. Please reach out for any reason.
