Parent Conferences are coming soon. . .

Tuesday February 24th and Wednesday February 25th. Remember, you don't have to wait until Parent Conferences to check grades (use Infinite Campus) or to talk with teachers. Simply send them an email or place a phone call. We are here to help!

 

ACCESS Testing

Testing is scheduled for January 26-30. This assessment is for ELL students who are continuing their mastery of the English Language. Testing will take place during elective blocks.

 

iPad Insurance

This is a reminder that the 2nd semester has begun.  Now is the time to pay for the second installment of your child's iPad insurance.  Please note that this insurance covers iPad damages. In addition, iPads must be in their case with the screen protector on at all times for insurance to be valid. It does not include insurance for a lost or stolen iPads. Please log onto parent/student portal to find the balance due.  To pay the fee, please click here to go to the online payments.

 

Digital Diet

Beginning in the second semester, we are implementing an additional support for students who might be struggling staying up with their academics. Students who have two or more D or F grades will be placed on a "Digital Diet" with their iPads. This means that they will meet with their academic counselor and all non-academic apps will be deleted from their iPads. They will remain on this "diet" until they raise their grades, and will not be able to add any apps without administrator permission. If you would like to investigate how to set restrictions on your child’s iPad look through the LTP Parent FAQs and Parental Restrictions links.

 

PowerTalks

We are looking for volunteers to speak at our monthly TRMS PowerTalks. It is our version of TEDtalks. Any expert is welcome. The format is a 20 minute talk followed by a Q & A session. PowerTalks happen on the first Thursday of each month. If you or someone you know might be interested in presenting please email Kara Jostes, jostes_kara@svvsd.org to find out more.
