Principal's message 2020 - 2021 School Year

August, 2020 
Good Afternoon Parents, 
The first day of school will be August 18 – a beginning like no other we have seen in the past. The first two days of school, August 18 and 19, will be focused on preparing for online learning to ensure we all get off to a strong start. Here is an overview of the schedule: 
Monday, August 17, is for teachers and other school staff only. Teachers and staff will spend three days planning and training for online instruction. On Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, starting at 9 a.m., orientation videos about tools and strategies for online learning success will be available for students and families to watch independently on Schoology, the computer program we use to post lessons. Log on to lms.lausd.net with your username and password to access your lessons. A letter will be U.S. mailed to you with this information if you need it.  
At 1 p.m. Tuesday, I will hold a virtual meeting to welcome you to our school. For those who are unable to attend, a video recording of the meeting will be posted on our school’s website. And at 1p.m. Wednesday, teachers will hold online meet-and-greet sessions with each of their advisory classes. Meeting information can be found on the Advisory Schoology page.  
Online instruction will start at 9 a.m. Thursday. We encourage your child to be logged in on time and ready for this exciting start to the school year. 
I encourage you to take a moment to visit halecharteracademy.com for information about our school and the opportunities available for our students. In addition, take a look at the Family and Student Handbook for information about student enrollment, sample schedules and how to navigate online learning. Printed copies will be available at all schools beginning Monday, and an electronic version will be sent to all families.  
Another major change is to our instructional schedule. Teachers are expected to adhere to instructional minute minimums and requirements for synchronous/asynchronous instruction outlined in the example provided. The student’s school day will begin at 9 AM and conclude at 2:15 PM. Attached to this email you will find a few documents that should help clarify the first few days of school.

Continue to enjoy your time off and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, August 18.
