CONNECT ED ANNOUNCEMENT 9-27-20
Hello Guilford eLearning Virtual Academy Families!
This is Lisa Jordan with our weekly announcements.
To begin, I want to welcome our new families who have enrolled their children at the Virtual Academy. Our district has extended the enrollment period to Wednesday, September 30.
If you just registered your child at the Virtual Academy, please give us 2-3 school days to get them in our PowerSchool system. Once their information is transferred from Schoolmint to our PowerSchool system, they will be assigned a classroom teacher. Their assigned teacher will make contact with you and provide you with the needed information in order for your child to join live small group lessons and to have access to their teacher's Canvas page.
In the meantime, I would suggest that you view our website at www.gcsnc.com/virtualacademy . Once there, scroll to the bottom and you will see “View More School News”. Click on that button and it will take you to another page. I just held “Town Hall Meetings” 2 weeks ago and we recorded the sessions. Check out the K-2nd grade and/or the 3rd-5th Grade Town Hall Meeting. I did share a great deal of information with our families and it will give you a clearer picture of the flexible schedule and personalized learning that makes us different at the Virtual School. It will also explain the entire enrollment process and procedures.
We also have added the most recently asked questions to our website, so I would encourage you to check this out, too.
Monday, September 28 is scheduled as a teacher workday, so students will not have live instruction tomorrow. Live instruction with your child’s classroom teacher will begin again on Tuesday, September 29-Friday, October 2.
Finally, we started mailing Interim Reports to our students’ families on Saturday, but we still have many more to mail on Monday and Tuesday of this upcoming week, so please be looking for your child’s interim report in the mail this week.
This concludes my weekly announcements. Thank you for all that you do to support our students at the Guilford eLearning Virtual Academy and have a wonderful week!
