Meal Service Letter

April 27, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

Over the last several weeks we have seen an increase in the demand for meals at our distribution sites. To better serve those in need, Longview Public Schools will be expanding the grab and go meal delivery service starting Wednesday, April 29, 2020.

Last week, we sent a meal survey to families of students who take the bus to school. From the survey, we created seven bus routes that will be stopping at existing bus stops, to serve a grab and go breakfast and lunch. Families that requested meal service will be contacted by the transportation department with pick up times and locations.

Interested in meals, but didn’t respond to the survey?   Please contact the transportation department at 360-575-7866 or email infoteam@longviewschools.org.  Please remember, any child, from birth to age 18, can pick up a grab and go breakfast and lunch each weekday. You don’t need to qualify or register to receive meals – the kids just have to show up.

As always, be ready at the bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled arrival time.  Students must be visible at the bus stops to receive meals and please remember to practice social distancing. Routes will be posted to the school district website with the times and locations. Be sure to check the longviewschools.com web site for updates as the needs may increase. Bus delivery meal service will continue through June 19, 2020.

Thank you.

COVID-19 Update 4/24/2020

April 24, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

 

I want to start off by thanking all of you for getting your kids engaged in the remote learning process. In the first two weeks of remote learning, students attended video-conference lessons, completed assignments in on-line and print formats, and interacted with teachers and classmates.  Overall, it is going pretty well.

Looking ahead, we hope students get into a regular routine that will allow them to have an effective remote learning experience. If you need help with this, reach out to your teacher or principal.  We want to be sure we are doing all we can to meet your needs during this difficult time.  We know you are doing the best you can under this unique circumstance and appreciate your continued support of the learning we are providing during the closure of our schools.

For those of you with students taking high school classes, who are wondering about grades and graduation, we posted grading and graduation guidelines on the district web site.  These guidelines are consistent with the direction provided by Washington’s Superintendent of Public Instruction and are being shared by your school principal.  As I’ve said in the past, any high school senior who was on track to graduate before the school closure – will graduate this year.

The district is experiencing increased demand for meals. The number of kids showing up at our meal distribution sites keeps growing. To meet the demand, additional meal distribution options are under consideration. Please remember, any child, from birth to age 18, can pick up a grab and go breakfast and lunch each weekday. You don’t need to qualify or register to receive meals – the kids just have to show up.

Thank you for supporting our schools, take care and stay safe.  Please let your school principal or me know if you need any assistance.  We will do our best to get you the support you need.

 

Respectfully,

Dan Zorn, Superintendent
Longview Public Schools

A Letter to Parents

Hello Mustang Family,

We are now in our second week of distance learning. I know that many of you are having success, but some are experiencing problems accessing online lessons. Please know that we are working very hard to create a model that will make it easy for students and parents to access. We hope to send out tutorials, calendars and other information soon. We ask for your patience as we continue to navigate this new model of teaching. Below I have included some helpful information.

 

Offline Packet Pick Up

Friday, April 24th will be the next homework packet distribution day. Students can enter through the front door starting at 12:00pm.The packets will be located in the lobby. We ask that you follow social distancing guidelines by leaving at least 6 feet between you and the next student. Only one student at a time will enter the building. It is important to remember that only students that do not have access to the internet should be picking up packets. All lessons have been placed online for students to access remotely. If you are having trouble accessing the online lessons, please email us at smerzoian@longview.k12.wa.us  or   bpiper@longview.k12.wa.us

 

Returning Offline Work to Teachers

Due to health concerns, we are asking that you do not return your packets to the school. After students complete their work, we would like them to take a picture of it and email it to their teacher. You will see a list of teachers and emails at the bottom of this letter.

 

Math Workbooks

If a student still needs to pick up their math workbook, they can pick it up on Friday from 12:00-3:00pm.

 

Breakfast/Lunch

Breakfast/Lunch bags are served every day from 12:00-12:30pm in the Monticello Lobby Monday through Friday. All students from 0-18 years old can grab one and go.

 

Wi Fi Locations

If you are having trouble connecting to the internet, many of our schools have wi fi access from their parking lots. Below is a list of schools and the locations that allow you to access the school’s wi fi. Student chromebooks will link up automatically to the LPS-Student wireless network when in range, and personal devices can connect to the LPS-BYOD wireless network.

Star Polisher – Ms.Velke

What is your first name?
Delfina – Monticello

Tell us who you would like to thank for being a “star polisher”.
I would like to thank Ms.Velke

How did this person make a difference in your life?
I would like to thank Ms.Velke because I come into school every morning to her smiling at me and other students. She also asks how I am. She believes in me, and if I push myself I can do great things in life.

If you’d like to submit a Star Polisher please send it to infoteam@longviewschools.org.

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our high school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.

Remote Learning Begins April 13th

April 10, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

While school facilities are closed for the remainder of the school year, we are excited to get teacher driven remote learning started. Our focus is to work closely with you to help students learn and grow.

On Monday and Tuesday, April 13-14, teachers will be finalizing plans for providing remote learning for our students. Throughout the week, teachers will be contacting parents and families to discuss learning plans and needs. Please look for phone calls, and/or emails.

We expect all students to be engaged in learning approximately 11-13 hours per week. We understand this may be difficult for some, as each family has different challenges. In partnership with your child’s teacher/s, please do your best to set a learning schedule for your child.  Your help in assuring that your child is engaged in their learning for the remainder of the school year is needed and appreciated.

Teachers will be providing regular feedback to students to support learning.  At the high school level, grades will be assigned in a relatively traditional manner while at the middle and elementary level it may look a bit different.  For those of you with high school seniors, if your senior was on track to graduate before the school closure – they will graduate.  As we get deeper into our remote learning delivery, you are likely to see some adjustments in our grading practices so that we meet the needs of our students during this unique circumstance.  The goal is to help your child learn and grow.

Understandably, you will have questions. Please reach out to your teacher, principal or me with any questions, we are here to help and support you.

While we would rather see you in school, we are excited to get remote learning started. Our teachers and support staff are fantastic and will find the best ways to help students learn.  It will take some time for us to establish the best ways to deliver instruction remotely but know that we will make it a successful learning experience for your child.

I hope you are enjoying time with your family, reading with your kids and staying healthy.

Respectfully,

Dan Zorn, Superintendent

Thank You Food Service & Transportation Staff

We would like to give a huge thanks to our nutrition services and transportation teams for getting food to kids in need. The Longview Public Schools team serves an estimated 400+ kids a day and will continue to do so during the school closure. We cannot thank you all enough for the wonderful work you do for the students in our district.

School Closure Update

April 6, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

I’m writing to share some important news. Today, Governor Inslee made the decision to close schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.  Instruction will continue, however.  This closure is an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community safe and healthy. During this closure extension, all schools and facilities in the district will remain closed.

We understand that the continued closure of schools presents many challenges for students and families. It also raises many questions. The information outlined below is what we know now. We will continue to share further guidance as information becomes available.

  • Remote Learning: Remote learning will be expanded to include regular engagement with teachers on April 15 and continue through the remainder of the school year, now scheduled to end on June 19. Your teacher(s) will be contacting you next week to answer your questions and get our teacher directed remote learning started. Please be patient as this evolves.
  • Meal Distribution: We will continue to provide meals Monday through Friday at the same locations and times. Once the school year ends we will start the summer time meal program as in years past.
  • High School Seniors: The Department of Education is meeting this week to make decisions about high school graduation. As this information becomes available we will send it to you. If your student was on track to graduate before the school closure – they will graduate as planned.
  • Graduation Ceremonies: In-person graduation ceremonies are likely to shift to virtual ceremonies and/or be delayed. A final decision related to graduation ceremonies will be shared soon, so families can make plans.
  • School Activities: All school events, including sporting practices and matches, field trips, dances, etc. will be canceled during the extended school closure. We plan to engage with our employees and students to come up with creative alternatives to celebrate milestones. We will keep students and families updated on these decisions, so you can plan your participation in advance.
  • Summer School: We are awaiting information from Governor Inslee on whether school facilities will be open to provide summer school this year.

Please visit the district web site and Facebook page as updates are being posted regularly. If you have questions please reach out to your school principal.

Please continue to take good care of yourselves and your families. This is a difficult time for all of us, but we will get through it together.

Sincerely,

Dan Zorn, Superintendent
