Castle Rock Communiqué

Welcome Back Knights!

School Starts Tomorrow!

Hello Castle Rock Families!


We are so excited to welcome our students back to class tomorrow! Class starts online at 8:00am sharp; please be ready to learn with a full tummy and a productive space to work. A huge thank you to the many people who have been working tirelessly to ensure tomorrow is a wonderful success for our students.


By now you should have heard from your child's teacher about how to access their class. Please remember to check your spam/junk mail folders to ensure their messages have not ended up there! Sometimes messages from our Aeries email system filter in to junk mail boxes. If you find it there, please add us to your "safe sender" list.


For help at any time, please email our technology help desk (wvhelp@wvusd.org), or call our office. We have Google classroom codes and Zoom links ready to go just in case!


Now...breathe! While there will undoubtedly be bumps in the road, we will get through them. If your child has not yet logged into their Chromebook, google classroom, etc., we recommend you do so today. If you are having trouble logging in, please scroll down for some tips and suggestions.


Happy distance learning!

Please watch our school reopening webinar that was held on Thursday, August 6.

On Thursday, August 6, we hosted a school reopening webinar to discuss instructional schedules, expectations for distance learning and more. Please click the link above to review this information if you were not able to join us. Thanks!
Students should go to myportal.wvusd.org to get to their Google classrooms. To log in, students should type their six digit permanent ID (also known as their lunch number) followed by @stu.wvusd.org, and enter the password they used last year**


**Note, if your child is new to Walnut Valley, default passwords were included in the email you received today. Please check that email for the default password.


***If you are logging into a district chromebook, the username is XXXXXX@stu.wvusd.org (six digit lunch ID first; your chromebook may default to @g.wvusd.k12.ca.us; keep typing and it will disappear). The password is the same as the one your child used last year, OR the default passwords provided in today's email (dated 8/9/2020).
