Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 School Year! I'm so glad you will be a part of the Lo.V.E. family this year. We will be starting our school year Virtually. In preparation for the start of the year, we will have device (Ipad), and school materials pick up The week of August 10-14th at that time, please also bring back the devices that were checked out to you in March last year to receive an updated device.
If you are new to our school, we do need to receive your enrollment packet. Please check our website under the Academics tab or in the Parent Resources on the menu bar. The enrollment documents can be filled out and emailed to us or delivered during our daily office hours. Our website is www.loyolavillageartsmagnet.org
As we prepare for the start of the school year, I would like to host a few "Check In with Dr. Smith" Town Hall meetings with you. As I prepare for these meetings, I would like your feedback as to the discussion topics. I will share the start of school information, the technology platforms we will be using, website updates, textbook and online access, and Parent Portal. I will be hosting two meetings the week of August 11 - 14th. Please select two days and two time blocks that work best for you. By Wednesday August 05th I will send a Connect Ed message sharing the times of our upcoming Town Hall meetings. Thank you and I look forward to meeting with you all. All meetings will be VIRTUAL through Zoom.
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.
