On Campus Instruction

Having been approved for “on campus” instruction, students will be required to comply with all LA County Department of Health mandates including, but not limited to,  the wearing of masks and adhering to social distance guidelines at all times.  Parents are requested to reinforce these guidelines by reducing the number of social interactions when dropping off and picking up their children at school to ensure the safety and well being of all students.

Should we be alerted by the Department of Health to suspend on campus learning, we will immediately convert to a distance learning format.  The daily schedule will remain the same for the duration of the summer session however students will receive instruction from their teachers via remote learning.  Please see DISTANCE LEARNING POLICIES below.

Distance Learning Policies

If we must transition to distance learning, every student enrolled must have a laptop or tablet with working camera and audio features, reliable Wi-Fi and capability for face-to-face and voice/text contact with faculty. Students will be unable to participate in the summer programs without these items as they are critical to their access to course materials and their class participation.

Unfortunately, PVPSS ​does not have equipment available “to loan” to students who wish to enroll.

 

You will be required to complete the below Data Confirmation in the Aeries portal after your registration is completed. Information below is for reference only.

PVPSS Distance Learning Responsible Use Guidelines

PVPSS believes all students deserve a safe, secure & positive learning environment. We expect students to:

  • Respect others.
  • Be kind.
  • Share positive messages

Be Ready to Learn

  • Arrive at online meetings on time or slightly earlier.
  • Focus on learning and connection activities.
  • Dress appropriately, as you would at school.
  • Use school-appropriate language.
  • Choose an appropriate location, with few distractions.
  • Complete all assignments with academic integrity.  Copying or allowing someone to copy work is unacceptable. Sharing information regarding quiz or exam content is academically dishonest. Taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them on as one’s own (​plagiarism)​ is not permitted at any time.

PROTECT YOURSELF

  • Think before you post.
  • Refrain from publishing personal information.
  • Report any cyber-bullying to your teacher, parent or trusted adult.

DO YOUR BEST​​

  • Ask for help when you need it.
  • Communicate with your teacher.
  • Distance learning is different from at-school learning and can be challenging … talk about it with someone.
  • Take breaks & engage in activities that don’t always involve a screen.

DAILY PARTICIPATION

  • Must have a laptop or tablet with working camera and audio features
  • Must have reliable WIFI
