Hello Diablo Families,
First, I can only imagine how many emails you have received this past week so I will try to keep my update brief. MVHS teachers are ready for Monday, March 23, as we launch distance learning. Students should have checked in with their teacher by 3:00 pm Friday, March 20. If your student has not checked in, please make sure they do so as soon as possible. We plan to reach out to students via phone next week who have not made contact with his/her teacher.
Our goal is to engage in learning and not inundate our Diablos with extensive work at this time. We are mindful as a school community that it is a stressful time in the lives of many and it is our intent to provide instruction, engagement, focus on essential standards, and continuity for students. In collaboration with our exceptional Secondary Chairs of each respective department, the following schedule has been created to post work for students in the following subject areas:
MVHS School Guidelines
World Language/VAPA: Wednesday
Social Science/PE: Friday*
As I drove to school early yesterday morning, I noticed a beautiful rainbow over our MVHS campus. I am confident we will move forward unified and strong. For my senior families, I know this is an especially difficult time for your student. I will send a separate communication to my seniors next week. Please let them know they are in my thoughts. In closing, I am proud of the work of MVHS Teachers, Secondary Chairs, Academic Coach, Classified Staff, Custodial Staff, Guidance Department, and my Administrative Team as we maintain a positive outlook and look forward to a new school day virtually on Monday. Sending wishes for good health!
