COVID-19 Update 5/22/2020

May 22, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

Thank you for supporting Longview Schools. Our teachers and staff members continue to work hard every day providing lessons and interacting with students and this wouldn’t be possible without your help.

In the midst of remote learning and celebrating our seniors, the district is planning for next year. The state may require us to start the year normally or in some combination of remote and in class learning. At this point, we do not have clear direction, but expect to have more information in mid-June. We are making plans to support whatever learning model the state orders. We know you will have questions about this and will get information out as soon as it becomes available.

If you haven’t checked out the district Facebook page or web site please do. Photos and videos from the cap and gown pick up celebrations for the class of 2020 are up and they are fantastic. The events were successful and reactions very positive. The Mark Morris Choir also put together two amazing videos that were aired on KGW channel 8 and are well worth watching and listening to.

If you need help with anything related to school, please contact your teacher or principal. We are here to help and support you through this challenging time.

Thanks again for supporting our schools.

Respectfully,

 

Dan Zorn, Superintendent

COVID-19 Update 5/16/2020

May 16, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

Thank you for supporting the district’s remote learning efforts. We are hearing great reports about students staying involved in learning.

As remote learning continues, hopefully the process is getting easier for you to manage. We appreciate your patience as we continue to refine our system.

You may be wondering about what school will look like next year.  We are closely monitoring guidance from the governor’s office and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.  As we wait for this guidance, we have begun preparing for multiple scenarios.  Whatever direction is taken, we will be prepared to provide the best education we possibly can within the parameters provided by the state.  We will keep you informed as we learn more.  Your patience continues to be greatly appreciated.

Some of you have gotten connected with our expanded meal distribution service. We are providing a breakfast and lunch to hundreds of kids each day. If you have a question, or need to get connected to receive meals, please email infoteam@longviewschools.org.

Our high school senior celebrations continue on social media and the district web site. If you visit the district Facebook page, you will see senior spotlight videos and photos of many graduates. The Class of 2020 is an amazing group of young adults.

Kindergarten registration is open online at longviewschools.com. Our student enrollment web page includes a how to video to help you get your child registered. Now is the time to get your 5 year old signed up and ready to go for the upcoming school year.

If you need help or support, please contact your teacher or school principal. We are here for you and want to help.

Thanks again for supporting our schools.

Take care, have a great weekend and stay safe.

Sincerely,

Dan Zorn, Superintendent

Meal Service Letter

April 27, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

Over the last several weeks we have seen an increase in the demand for meals at our distribution sites. To better serve those in need, Longview Public Schools will be expanding the grab and go meal delivery service starting Wednesday, April 29, 2020.

Last week, we sent a meal survey to families of students who take the bus to school. From the survey, we created seven bus routes that will be stopping at existing bus stops, to serve a grab and go breakfast and lunch. Families that requested meal service will be contacted by the transportation department with pick up times and locations.

Interested in meals, but didn’t respond to the survey?   Please contact the transportation department at 360-575-7866 or email infoteam@longviewschools.org.  Please remember, any child, from birth to age 18, can pick up a grab and go breakfast and lunch each weekday. You don’t need to qualify or register to receive meals – the kids just have to show up.

As always, be ready at the bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled arrival time.  Students must be visible at the bus stops to receive meals and please remember to practice social distancing. Routes will be posted to the school district website with the times and locations. Be sure to check the longviewschools.com web site for updates as the needs may increase. Bus delivery meal service will continue through June 19, 2020.

Thank you.

COVID-19 Update 4/24/2020

April 24, 2020

Dear Parents and Families,

 

I want to start off by thanking all of you for getting your kids engaged in the remote learning process. In the first two weeks of remote learning, students attended video-conference lessons, completed assignments in on-line and print formats, and interacted with teachers and classmates.  Overall, it is going pretty well.

Looking ahead, we hope students get into a regular routine that will allow them to have an effective remote learning experience. If you need help with this, reach out to your teacher or principal.  We want to be sure we are doing all we can to meet your needs during this difficult time.  We know you are doing the best you can under this unique circumstance and appreciate your continued support of the learning we are providing during the closure of our schools.

For those of you with students taking high school classes, who are wondering about grades and graduation, we posted grading and graduation guidelines on the district web site.  These guidelines are consistent with the direction provided by Washington’s Superintendent of Public Instruction and are being shared by your school principal.  As I’ve said in the past, any high school senior who was on track to graduate before the school closure – will graduate this year.

The district is experiencing increased demand for meals. The number of kids showing up at our meal distribution sites keeps growing. To meet the demand, additional meal distribution options are under consideration. Please remember, any child, from birth to age 18, can pick up a grab and go breakfast and lunch each weekday. You don’t need to qualify or register to receive meals – the kids just have to show up.

Thank you for supporting our schools, take care and stay safe.  Please let your school principal or me know if you need any assistance.  We will do our best to get you the support you need.

 

Respectfully,

Dan Zorn, Superintendent
