Continuous Learning Plan and Packet Delivery Instructions
Thursday April 2, 2020
Good afternoon Vanoss! As you know, all school buildings in Oklahoma are closed for the remainder of the school year. However, we all need our Wolves to finish out the year strong and be ready to ‘move on up’ when we return hopefully in the fall. The Vanoss administration, faculty, and staff have been hard at work preparing a way to make sure that all of our students have a way to finish their classes, and even have great opportunities to raise their final semester grades.
This coming Monday, April 6 we will be rolling out our Continuous Learning Plan, which will consist of both paper packets and online use of technology. We fully understand that internet use is not available to all students. Therefore, our teachers have devised a plan to blend both paper packets and tools available over the internet to further your child’s education.
For those students with internet access, some lessons will be provided electronically, while some classes still need to be done paper/pencil. These lessons will be sent home in packets on Monday, April 6th.
For those without internet access, teachers have designed packets that will cover the lessons for the rest of the year. These will also go out April 6.
Packet delivery method: We are currently dividing up all of the student’s packets into groups according to which morning bus route they belong to. On Monday morning at 10am, the Vanoss school busses will roll and fan out across the entire district, stopping at each normally assigned bus stop. Vanoss employees aboard the busses will hand out packets for each student/family at their normal bus stop. We will be following the CDC’s recommendations during the delivery of the packets, so we ask that only one member of the household be present at the bus stop to aid in preventing the spread of this virus. Students do not have to be present. It is, unfortunately, impossible to predict exactly what time each bus will be at each bus stop. We will do our best to keep the busses moving and have everyone’s packets delivered as smoothly as possible.
Please keep all paper packets in a safe central location, as this will be the only packet available. After everyone's packets have been disbursed your students teachers will be notifying you with further instructions on how to begin your child's Continuous Learning Plan. We would like to thank you for working with us to get this task accomplished for all 535 students.
Online delivery method: Each teacher will be using whichever online platform works best for their individual classes. However, all teachers and all class lessons will be located on the Vanoss school website.
Our school website will be meant to be your one-stop-shop for all things Vanoss. You will find each of your teachers lessons as well as contact numbers, class resources, announcements, etc.
There are, of course, many more details to be worked out, and you will have many questions. Please continue to watch the Vanoss website and Facebook page for more announcements, and we will try to answer as many questions as possible. If you have any new contact information such as cell numbers or email addresses, please get those to us ASAP in order to help you stay connected.
For students in grades PK-5, email email@example.com
For students in grades 6-12, email changes to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any phone numbers that need to be added to the School Messenger robocall system, just text the word YES to the number 67587
For now, take care of your families, stay safe, and stay healthy!
