Dear Eagleview Families,

As we are set to embark on an unprecedented school year, I want to than you for your ongoing support.  This year will truly to be a partnership and we can not be more grateful for your grace and understanding while we navigate this journey together.

There is a lot of communication to sift through and understand, and therefore I wanted to provide you with the essentials to help you get started this week.  School is set to start this Thursday, August 27th.  It was wonderful seeing so many of you at our Back to School Nights last week.  We recognize not everyone was able to attend the events, so here is an overview of important information you need!  There are a lot of links, and therefore I have tried to organize by specific topic. 

General Information

Technology Information
If you’ve requested a district-loaned learning device to support your child during remote learning, you will hear directly from your child’s school (if you haven’t already) regarding when and where to pick up the device. If you still need a device to support your child with remote learning you can submit a request via our Family Tech Support website.

Tips for Remote Learinng

  • Create a calm workspace: Your child should have a study environment that encourages focusing and learning. This could be any place in your house where your child has a work surface such as a table or a desk, and relatively few distractions. If you will have multiple children working in the same space, try to find ways that they can spread out and consider having them use headphones to minimize extra noise in the workspace. 

  • Set and keep a schedule: Five Star students will be following a consistent schedule while in remote learning this year. You can view the elementary schedule here and the secondary schedule here. This should help provide students with structure and routine to help them succeed in remote learning. We also encourage families to consider having a regular morning routine, making sure students have time to eat breakfast and get dressed before school starts. 

  • Use a timer: A timer can help students navigate their day and help you as they transition through their schedule.

  • Build self-care into the day: When students have a break from online instruction and learning, consider activities they can do to allow for physical movement, outdoor time and connecting with others. 

  • The power of naming and knowing emotions: Anxiety and stress can manifest in many different ways. While it may seem like misbehavior, your student may be just communicating their feelings about the loss of going to school. Identifying the stages of grief:

    • DENIAL:  “This virus won’t affect us.”

    • ANGER:  “You’re making me stay home and taking away my activities!”

    • BARGAINING:  “Okay, if I social distance for two weeks everything will be better, right?

    • SADNESS:  “I don’t know when this will end.”

    • ACCEPTANCE:  “This is happening; I have to figure out how to proceed.”

  • Create a strong connection with the classroom teacher: Understand the best way for you and your student to communicate with the teacher. Reach out when you need help. 

Learning Pods 

  • Communication to families who requested a learning pod will be sent tomorrow August 24th (from the district office).  Specific school information will be sent on Wednesday from Jordan Martin and myself that will include information about the pods at our site to begin on Monday, August 31. 

In Conclusion 

We will continue to keep you up to date with information and will post on our website as well.  As always, your child's teacher is the best point of contact for information related to their specific grade and class information.  Our district communication department is constantly updating information on the Onward Website as well. This is the most comprehensive location for information - click HERE for direct access.  Teachers will also be updating their specific web pages on a regular basis. 

Our theme for the year here at Eagleview is "Rising to the Challenge!"  We've got this, and together we will make this a great year! 

Sending my best wishes to each and every one of our families!  

Warm Regards, 

Bianca Porter, Principal
