COVID-19 Update

August 26, 2020

Dear Families,

We hope this update finds you and your family safe and well. The year continues to surprise us and throw challenges our way. We are so grateful that our students have been successful in continuing their learning over the last few weeks. The Vista Oaks community has continually worked together (while maintaining distance) to see our students adapt to this ever changing world.

Staying Connected - As we settle into weekly routines, we feel it is appropriate to pivot these weekly emails to the Friday Weekly Update. This past Friday you should have received the Weekly Update in your email with site based information. If you did not receive the Weekly Update please contact your Advisor.  The Weekly Updates are available on the website under each learning center as well.  

Frequently Asked Questions - As new frequently asked questions arise, we will add them to the current list and share those with you.  For easy reference, the latest FAQ is attached.

School Text Alerts - Most of you currently receive school text alerts via SchoolMessenger.  For those of you who are new to our school community, we are working to get you added to this notification system. More information will be sent out in an upcoming Friday Weekly Update about how to opt into text alerts for schoolwide updates. 

Annual M.A.P. Assessments - Over the next few weeks, your Advisor will be reaching out to you to arrange remote MAP testing. The annual MAP allows students, parents and Advisors to see one measure of student growth. As a charter school, the data that is gathered during MAP helps show the value of our program and the learning that is occurring.  We appreciate your time and energy in helping to make this successful.

As 2020 continues to be a year of unexpected challenges, we are grateful for our Vista Oaks’ Community and the opportunity to serve your children. 

Let’s continue learning together!
