Hello Parents of Our K-8 Students–

As we begin this first week in our distance learning format, there are a few items in which we need to be mindful to ensure the health and safety of our school community:

n  If your child’s teacher has communicated with you that he or she will have learning packets for you to pick up at the school, please note that the packets will be distributed to you outside of the school building with the help of a school aide. Therefore, you will not enter the school building to receive your child’s packet.

n  The same will occur for picking up student and sibling free breakfast and lunch combo, take-with-you meals. The pick-up time for the meals is 10:30 am to Noon, Monday-Friday. Please stay in your car (and please ensure any children with you remain in your car as well). When you are greeted by a school employee or principal, let them know the number of meals you need for your student(s) and siblings, ages 1-18, and he or she will retrieve them for you. (There might be a line, so please be patient with the school employee as he or she works to take care of each and every one of you.)

The above items will keep physical contact with each other to a minimum and within the parameters of Idaho’s Stay-Home Order, especially ensuring no one enters the school building, unless approved to do so.

Please know, too, that during this first week back we will carefully sterilize the school and pack up your student’s desk, placing their personal items in individual bags, along with other items they will need for week two and beyond. (School employees will wear masks and gloves to do this work.) Beginning Monday, April 20, from 8 a.m. to Noon, parents may pick up their student’s bag by driving up to the front of the school with an employee runner then retrieving your student’s bag from the school building and bringing it to your car.

Thank you for understanding the need to follow these strict guidelines of no entry into the school during this unprecedented time. Our purpose in doing so is to ensure everyone’s health and safety while also ensuring our school is clean, safe, and ready to go for when (hopefully) the Stay-Home Order is lifted.

There is nothing our teachers and we want more than to be in the classrooms with your students. It has been especially hard for us to accept that this won’t be the case come tomorrow. However, if we are diligent in following the items above, adhering to the State’s Stay-Home Order, and doing our best to provide your students with a positive, distance-learning experience we hope we’ll be together again sooner rather than later.

Thank you, and please keep watching your emails for continued communications.

Stay safe and well,

Dr. Marianne Saunders and Mrs. Tera Luce

Hola padres de nuestros alumnos de K-8–

Al comenzar esta primera semana en nuestro formato de aprendizaje a distancia, hay algunos elementos en los que debemos estar atentos para garantizar la salud y la seguridad de nuestra comunidad escolar:

n  Si el maestro de su hijo se ha comunicado con usted que tendrá paquetes de aprendizaje para que recoja en la escuela, tenga en cuenta que los paquetes se le distribuirán fuera del edificio escolar con la ayuda de un ayudante escolar. Por lo tanto, no ingresará al edificio de la escuela para recibir el paquete de su hijo.

n  Lo mismo ocurrirá al recoger a los estudiantes y hermanos, desayuno y almuerzo combinados, comidas para llevar con usted. El horario de recogida para las comidas es de 10:30 a.m. a mediodía, de lunes a viernes. Por favor, quédese en su automóvil (y asegúrese de que los niños con usted permanezcan también en su automóvil). Cuando sea recibido por un empleado o director de la escuela, hágales saber la cantidad de comidas que necesita para su (s) estudiante (s) y hermanos (as), de 1 a 18 años, y él o ella los recuperará por usted. (Puede haber una línea, así que por favor sea paciente con el empleado de la escuela mientras trabaja para cuidar de todos y cada uno de ustedes).

Los elementos anteriores mantendrán el contacto físico entre ellos al mínimo y dentro de los parámetros de la Orden de permanencia en el hogar de Idaho, especialmente asegurando que nadie ingrese al edificio de la escuela, a menos que esté aprobado para hacerlo.

Tenga en cuenta también que durante la primera semana de regreso esterilizaremos cuidadosamente la escuela y empacaremos el escritorio de su estudiante, colocando sus artículos personales en bolsas individuales, junto con otros artículos que necesitarán para la segunda semana y más. (Los empleados de la escuela usarán máscaras y guantes para hacer este trabajo). A partir del lunes 20 de abril, de 8 am a mediodía, los padres pueden recoger la bolsa de su estudiante conduciendo hasta el frente de la escuela con un corredor empleado y luego recogiendo el de su estudiante. bolsa del edificio de la escuela y llevarla a su automóvil.

Gracias por entender la necesidad de seguir estas estrictas pautas de no ingresar a la escuela durante este tiempo sin precedentes. Nuestro propósito al hacerlo es garantizar la salud y la seguridad de todos y, al mismo tiempo, garantizar que nuestra escuela esté limpia, segura y lista para cuando (con suerte) se levante la Orden de quedarse en casa.

Nuestros maestros no tienen nada y queremos más que estar en las aulas con sus alumnos. Ha sido especialmente difícil para nosotros aceptar que este no será el caso mañana. Sin embargo, si somos diligentes en seguir los puntos anteriores, cumplir con la Orden Estatal de Residencia y hacer todo lo posible para brindarles a sus estudiantes una experiencia positiva de aprendizaje a distancia, esperamos volver a estar juntos más pronto que tarde.

Gracias, y siga vigilando sus correos electrónicos para comunicaciones continuas.

Mantente seguro y bien

Parents – Thank you for your quick replies to the email yesterday, March 24, regarding your home WIFI access. We’re receiving good information from you that is greatly helping us put in place what we now know will be the need to use remote learning our first week back from spring break, April 13-17.

More details will be coming regarding the approaches we’ll use April 13-17 so you and your students can prepare. If you’ve yet to reply to yesterday’s email, please do so as soon as possible, letting us know if you do not have WIFI access, and if you will have challenges in providing devices (i.e., PCs, laptops, etc.) for your students to use at home. Although, we have access to limited devices, we will try our best to provide those with no devices. Once this information is collected we will be able to determine the best arrangements for offering school attendance options to ensure our students are learning in the most effective ways possible.

Also, for April 13-17, free, cold-lunch combo meals for students and their siblings, ages 1-18, will be available daily for curbside pickup at the school between 10:30 am –Noon while supplies last. The meals are to be taken and not consumed on site. Children must be present to receive a free meal.

If you know of parents who might not be receiving these emails for some reason, please let us know, so we can contact them another way, or please ask them to call the school office. We want to make sure everyone is receiving these updates. The way in which our school community is coming together has been incredible and we appreciate all our efforts in helping each other. Thank you for your ongoing support.

We will keep updating you as we approach April 13, and we will be working with families individually as necessary to ensure all our students have access to their education that week. Please keep checking your email inbox, the school website and Facebook for information.

We continue to stay positive in our hopes you all are well and that tomorrow, the first day of spring break, is one you can enjoy among the uncertainties.

Hello Victory Parents – we wanted to touch base with you before we technically begin our scheduled spring break, which runs from March 26-April 10.

As we continue to work to stay ahead of the COVID-19 curve while following the directives by health officials, our Governor, and the State Board of Education, we are committed to maintaining our high standards of education and safety for your students. Realizing this might require an online component, depending on where things stand in a couple of weeks, we want to be as prepared as possible.

Therefore, we need your assistance by providing the following information to us as soon as possible:

If you do not have WIFI access at home, please reply to office@victorycharterschool.net saying so, making sure to include the names and grades of your students attending our school. While our teachers have a pretty good idea of which families might be without WIFI service, we want to do our best to confirm the information. Thank you for your quick replies.

We will remain in contact with you over spring break, so please be sure to check email often, as well as the school’s website and social media.

Take care and stay well,

Dr. Saunders and Mrs. Tera Luce
