Dear Parents and Students of St. John's Lutheran School and Preschool:
Grace and peace to all of you in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Below are some notes and news for you.
When will school open again?
Things are changing daily. You may have heard that Oxnard School District will be closed until Monday, May 4. This may indeed happen, but we are hopeful and prayerful that the COVID-19 will subside sooner. We will follow the lead of OSD and the Pacific Southwest District of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod School Ministries Office regarding this issue. St. John's will give you a full update on our school schedule at the end of Spring Break on Friday, April 3.
How prepared are our teachers?
The faculty has met early this past week to discuss individual classroom plans for remote distance instruction. Obviously, each grade level will work out instruction differently. We are fully preparing to provide quality lesson planning with the goal of completing curriculum for each grade level on time. More information will be provided by each teacher.
In order to be even better prepared for distance learning, the teachers have also attended a great webinar entitled "Transitioning to Remote Learning During School Closures Due to Corona-virus / COVID-19".
We have also provided you with a large number of resources for at home curriculum supplementation. See the email sent to you on Tuesday.
What about report cards?
Please be aware that the issuing of Trimester 2 report cards may be delayed.
What can parents do?
Feel free to email your student's teacher with questions. Turn this "at home" time into a wonderful opportunity to be together as family. Teach cooking, play games, and read, read, read!
On a personal note, I will be working from home starting on Monday, March 23. You are welcome to email me with any questions or special needs. You can also leave a voice mail at the office at: 1.805.983.0330 x15. I will check voice mail daily.
My prayers remain with each of you, individually each day. Remember that Jesus said: I am the Good Shepherd. I know My own and My own know Me. John 10:14. There is no greater assurance than this.
