Greetings SJVA Students, Parents, Guardians,
(Traducción al español haga clic aquí)
We hope that all is well with you and your family during this time. As you know starting the week of April 20th, we will be transitioning into teaching new material, assigning assignments, and entering those assignments into the grade book for Triad 6. The well being and continued development of each student is important to the SJVA teachers and staff. Providing a continuation of learning will help minimize an achievement gap, keep students engaged, on path for graduation, and prepared for great achievements in the school year to come! While we would never have guessed that this is how the 2019-20 school year would conclude, we recognize and are proud of all the hard work, dedication, and grit demonstrated thus far by SJVA students, parents, guardians, and staff.
As we transition into this new phase of distance learning, we understand that you may have questions, concerns, or require assistance to effectively complete and support this next phase of distance learning. Please don’t hesitate to contact your teachers, Deans, and/or counseling department. See Aeries Parent Portal, SJVA.net, or below for contact information.
A distance learning plan has been developed to help to provide increased structure, expectations, and support to ensure the success of all students.
