On Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, orientation videos about tools and strategies for online learning success will be available for students and families to watch independently on Schoology, the computer program we use to post lessons. You can access Schoology either through the ipad we are distributing to you, or Log on to lms.lausd.net with your username and password to access your lessons. A letter will be U.S. mailed to you with this information if you need it. However, we will be distributing the information tomorrow as well.
 
On Tuesday August 18th I will hold another Town Hall meeting presenting the same information presented last Tuesday August 11 from 2pm - 3pm. Please join us if you can.

Greetings LoVE Family, 

This is Dr. Smith with a brief message as we prepare for the start of the school year. 

   I hope this message finds you all well and safe as we prepare to end our summer vacations and begin the start of our 2020-2021 School Year. Welcome to our New Families that have chosen LoVE to be the school where their children will experience a great blend of Arts and Academics merging harmoniously together. Welcome Back to our Returning Families! You could have chosen any other school, and I'm thankful you chose to continue with us. 
 
LoVE Families in anticipation of a great year to come, we want to be sure that all of our families are signed up for Parent Portal. I will be hosting my Weekly Check In with Dr. Smith Zoom meetings beginning Thursday August 06th at noon. August 06th Weekly Check in  will focus on Parent Portal log in and support. If you haven't accessed or not sure how to access Parent Portal please log in on Thursday August 06th for our first weekly check In. I have posted as a pop up on our website the link and directions to Parent Portal if you would like to explore it on your own. If you're not able to attend the Weekly Check In on August 06th don't worry I will record this particular Check In and post it to the website.  I have no doubt that every family at Loyola  will be ready and enrolled in Parent Portal by August 18th. 
 
Also SAVE The Dates, During the Week of August 10th - 14th I will be hosting multiple meetings to address any concerns, questions, and updates as we prepare for the upcoming school year. 
I will send out a survey with time block suggestions for these meetings to be held. That survey will be sent out with this Sunday's (August 02nd) Weekly Message.
 
Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to sharing more details about Parent Portal and our upcoming school year updates.
