I wanted to check in with all of you to let you know I am thinking of you and to update you on some important information! This evening, our district superintendent, Dr. Harwick, sent out a message to all families with some important information. First, school closures have been extended through Friday, April 17, 2020...but things are changing fast so we will update you if that gets extended. The next important thing is about learning...we got some guidelines today from the state superintendent and from the California Department of education for distance learning and enrichment activities. These guidelines will help us ensure equity and access for all students as we work on our educational plan while you are off campus. State testing will be suspended, but we are still monitoring AP/IB. As soon as we know more for those tests, we will get information out to you!
I know many of you may be feeling different things right now. Some of you might be anxious, upset, worried about school work, tests, senior events, etc...or some of you may be liking the break. No matter what it is you’re feeling-you are right and it’s ok to feel that way. I am feeling the same things...just know we are all in this together. There are many people working behind the scenes, from the district office leadership to everyone at OV, for all of you. As soon as we hear more and have things ready for you, we will let you know! I miss all of you...I even miss the sounds of those skateboards riding on parts of the campus you are not supposed to be riding on :). Take care of yourselves...do some mindfulness strategies :).
I love all of you and remember...you can’t spell love without OV :).
