Continuity of Learning Plan

4/11/20 - A message from Principal Salazar:

Happy Passover and Happy Easter to all who are celebrating. The first three weeks of distance learning were challenging but we got through them, together. I hope we are ready to get back to our remote learning which resumes on Monday.  

Our incredibly hard working teachers and staff collaborated on a schedule that provides parents, students, teachers and staff structure to make at home learning a little more consistent.  This schedule is designed to ensure teachers can host live interactive lessons and activities that will not overlap. This schedule has students start their day at 9am and end at 3pm, Monday through Thursday. On Fridays we encourage students to catch up on their work and, when appropriate, participate in any small group support that teachers or out of classroom staff may schedule. Every Friday at 11:30am we will have Zoom with the Principal, an opportunity to check in with each other, ask questions, and play a game together.  

 

Please review the schedule carefully and be sure to check Schoology often.  Please make sure you have a parent account set up and are actively checking Schoology as many of the resources, lessons, and zoom invitations will be posted there.

 

Let's continue to work together, let's continue learning together. Our school day looks different, but the learning continues. Students, keep up with your work.  For our students who have been earning top marks, keep it up.  Take this opportunity to dig deeper, expand your horizons, and learn new things.  For our students who have been struggling this year, take this opportunity to raise your grades, ask questions, review challenging concepts, and develop good habits.

 

Recognizing that each family will have its own set of circumstances and challenges, please reach out to us with any questions or concerns. 

For any questions about:

 

During uncertain times, I appreciate how our community has come together to support one another.  Thank you for all you are doing. I am so proud of our community. I can't wait to see many of you for our Zoom meeting on Friday at 11:30!  I'm already looking forward to it. 

Please continue to be safe and stay home, everyone.

 

3/13/20 - A message from Principal Salazar:
Thank you to our entire team of students, parents, teachers and staff for their resilience during times of uncertainty.  LAUSD Superintendent Beutner announced on Friday 3/13/2020 that all LAUSD schools, including Woodland Hills Academy, will be closed effective Monday, March 16, 2020 for the next two weeks.

 

Our dedicated teachers have diligently prepared assignments for our students to complete remotely from home in order to ensure continuity of learning. All students will receive updates via Schoology. We will assess their progress when school resumes. Should you have any questions or concerns, please email your child's teacher or administration via Schoology. We will be monitoring emails and will get back to you as soon as possible. You can find our Continuity of Learning Plan here.

 

The social emotional well-being of our students is important to us. We encourage families to use this time to connect with each other. Please remember to engage in meaningful conversations with one another; learn about our students' interests; spend one-on-one time with your loved ones; and monitor any social media activity. Should anyone need emotional support, please see the attached document on the right hand side of this message.

We deeply appreciate your understanding and support.
