A Message from Ms. Sloan: Planning for Another GREAT School Year!

Dear Lees Corner families,

On Tuesday night the school board supported Dr. Brabrand’ s recommendation to start the 2020-21 school year virtually for all students. We understand this decision has caused a range of emotions among families, students, and staff. These are uncertain and unprecedented times.

What remains certain and unchanged is our commitment to all of you to provide the best educational experience for all our students.  As a Lees Corner community, we will unite and continue to find creative ways to engage our students and remain a strong and connected school community. We are forever grateful for the way in which our PTA continues to connect with our families and school team to keep us all informed with timely information and resources!

We could not be prouder of our school staff for their teamwork and dedication to our students! Many of our staff are participating in professional development opportunities over the summer to further develop their skills so they can once again create highly engaging virtual learning environments that support the success of all students. While the beginning of the school year might be different than what many had hoped and planned for, we are busy preparing for a successful 2020-21 school year.  

We are fortunate to support a variety of learners at Lees Corner! Once staff return to work in mid-August, we will participate in ongoing professional development and planning sessions to create an instructional program to support the needs of our students. We are strengthening our digital learning model so that we can provide an even more rigorous and engaging virtual-learning program with greater connections for all students at all grade levels. Before school begins, we will create opportunities to connect with our students and families to share final instructional schedules, specific to program and grade level information. We are planning for the virtual start, while also keeping in mind the need to transition smoothly into another plan, when directed by FCPS.

Next week, we will share our technology plan for all K-6 students with you. We will begin soon with a laptop collection event, as FCPS has acquired additional devices for some elementary grade level students. Please stay tuned for more information regarding our specific plan.

We are working diligently to shape a successful school year for our students and families. As we finalize details regarding our virtual school opening, we promise to keep you updated. Continue to enjoy the summer, and please stay safe and healthy!

A Message from Ms. Sloan & the Chantilly Pyramid Elementary School Principals

Dear Families,

Thank you to those of you who were able to join our Chantilly Pyramid ES Town Hall this morning!I apologize to any family that had difficulty joining the Town Hall due to the size limit of the session. Below is a link to a recording of the meeting.

To view the recording of the Chantilly Pyramid ES Town Hall please click on this link.

I would also like to share the following information and reminders:

  • At the school board meeting yesterday, it was decided that for in-person classes students with last names beginning with A-K will attend school on Tuesday and Thursday and for students with Last names beginning with L-Z will attend Wednesday and Friday. For siblings at different schools and/or with different last names, adjustments will be made to allow families to have the same schedule for their children’s in-school attendance, whenever possible.
  • To see the PowerPoint from yesterday’s School Board session, please click on the link below and scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the PowerPoint regarding Return to School

https://go.boarddocs.com/vsba/fairfax/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=BE6FYC414EF0

  • The deadline for selecting online or in-person instruction is needed by tomorrow, July 15.  Parents can select the preferred option here.  

Our Lees Corner staff is ready to support our students with both options. We miss our students and we miss our families. Again, there are no easy answers and many questions that remain to be answered. 

More information will be coming out from FCPS in the weeks to come, so please read your emails carefully and visit the FAQ page on the Return to Learn website.  These questions will be updated weekly.  I am also happy to answer any questions and will reply as soon as I can.

We will certainly get through this together!

LCES Updates 6/19/20: So Many Summer Resources!

GovDelivery 1 month 3 weeks ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

 

On June 18, 2020, Fairfax County Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Scott Brabrand, announced, " While we have taken steps toward creating an inclusive and compassionate environment, there is clearly much more work to be done. So today, as a step on that journey, I am announcing that FCPS will observe Friday, June 19, as an official holiday for FCPS employees, in recognition of Juneteenth"

Together We Did It!

Dear Lees Corner Families and Friends,

The 2019-2020 school year has officially ended for both students and staff and our attention is now focused on planning and preparing for the 2020-2021 school year. Before we move on, it is important for us all to take some time to reflect on all we accomplished together and to express our gratitude.

We were awed by the flexibility and perseverance of our staff, students, and families during such challenging times. Although the shift to distance learning had a few bumps, we must recognize the colossal efforts and accomplishments of our school community!

We are so glad you were able to witness how our staff continued to build community with our students, found ways to provide instruction via completely new platforms, and worked to keep the lines of communication and collaboration open through weekly emails, phone calls, and small groups/lunch bunches!

It is also essential that we recognize the great shifts and sacrifices our families and students have made. Students learned a different way of attending school and became more independent learners away from their teachers and friends.

Parents juggled multiple tasks, varying work situations, and stressors that did not exist a few months ago. Hats off to you for figuring out how to navigate these factors while remaining positive, hopeful, and supportive!

Please know we remain committed to the academic, social, and emotional success of your children. Whatever final plans for the coming school year will be, we will continue to nurture your child’s strengths, find ways to connect with them, and provide meaningful learning opportunities.

We hope this summer is filled with activities that bring you joy. Stay safe, Lees Corner!

Your Proud LCES Team,

VaRonica Sloan, Principal

Laura Tapper, Assistant Principal &

The Lees Corner Staff

A Message from Mrs. Yellen, School Social Worker

Hello Lees Corner Families! With the clinical staff being out of the building for most of the summer, I want to offer a resource to help support your student’s social and emotional well-being. I have created a virtual Google office for you and your student to explore together that is full of activities, music, read-alouds and ideas!

Almost every picture in the office is a link! You will also find a “Parents Corner” which will connect you to FCPS provided resources, videos made by the clinical team, and articles focused on how to talk to your child about current events. I hope you and your student enjoy exploring my office this summer! Please note, you will need to be logged in to your child’s FCPS google account to view the page.

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/163V46QXOe0NBDC0lWbaxf8CYWo4Q2oDpX3YkiuSEx2Q/edit?usp=sharing

Stay well!

Mrs. Yellen

Digital versions of the books will also be posted on the Continuity of Learning Blackboard page. These books will provide recommended practice activities for students to review essential content from the 2019-2020 school year; they are not intended to preview content from next year’s grade level but rather reinforce essential learning from this past year.

Yearbook Update--ICYMI

The GREAT news is that we will have a wonderful yearbook that truly captures what learning and growing in the 2019-2020 school year was like at Lees Corner and during Distance Learning!

We had hoped the yearbooks would be ready for distribution during curbside pickup, but the printing and delivery has been delayed due to COVID-19. We will share more information with you when we have it. 

Now we have ANOTHER great thing to look forward to!

Curbside Pickup of Student Materials: Details and Schedule

Dear Families,

Our Lees Corner staff has been working hard to pack-up classrooms and collect students' materials and we are ready for tomorrow's curbside pickup!

Please understand that during the collection and preparation process, some unmarked items may not have been able to be identified as belonging to a particular student.

We will be hosting the contactless vehicle drive-thru pick up of these items by grade level..

Grade 6 students & families ONLY are scheduled to pick up items on Friday, June 12 from 9:00-10:30 a.m.

We have reserved this date and time for 6th grade students and families ONLY to allow us all to celebrate their promotion from elementary school to middle school. Please allow us to focus on them and their celebration during this time slot from 9:00-10:30 a.m.

If you are a parent of a student(s) in grades K-5 and you were unable to make it to the school last Friday, great news! We are offering you another opportunity for curbside pickup!

Grades K-5 families are scheduled for pickup, round 2, Friday, June 12th from 11:30 a.m. --12:30 p.m. This time slot will allow us to finish with 6th grade and then transition to a successful curbside pickup for the rest of our Blizzard buddies!

Please note that this time slot is for 1 hour only. This will allow our staff to break in time for lunch and then spend the afternoon wrapping up and closing out this school year so they will be ready to help in the summer or pick up right where they left off for the start of school year 2020-2021. We are already so excited to see what great things the next school year brings!

We are asking that you drop off textbooks, library books, patrol belts, reading bags for grades 1-3, and book club novels for grades 5 and 6 during this curbside pick up. Please bring these items with you and be prepared to drop them off while observing safe social distancing and contactless collection guidelines. 

Families will also be able to pick up medication left in the clinic or in SACC. Medication and instrument pickup will take place in the bus loop/parking lot directly in front of the school.

If your child is currently a 6th grade band or strings student and you have, or are renting, a school or FCPS owned instrument OR you are moving, you will need to return the instrument to school during the time below, or by June 12th. Regardless of next year’s instrument choice, 4th and 5th graders are permitted to keep their current school rentals through the summer and do not need to return them until next school year. Please see the schedule below and the map above:

Grade Level(s):

This will help the distribution to go smoothly. Staff will direct you to the front loop of the school if you need to pick up medication and/or manage musical instruments.

If you have any questions, you may call the school at 703-227-3500.

We look forward to seeing so many of you on Friday!

"Magic Happens Here" 

What About the Laptop?

6th Grade Students ONLY:

Mr. Lis & Mrs. Fisher will be collecting laptops on Friday, June 12th from 9:00 -10:30 a.m.from any 6th grade students who are moving or will not be continuing distance learning through the summer months. Laptops will be distributed by the middle schools to rising 7th graders later this summer. You will not receive a laptop from the middle school until your laptop is returned to LCES. Please make sure you return the laptop, charger and case either on Friday or at future date,TBD, in August.

 

Kindergarten - 5th Grade Students Not Returning to LCES in the Fall:

Mr. Lis & Mrs. Fisher  will be collecting laptops on Friday, June 12th from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. only.

If your child(ren) will be going to a different school in the fall, please make sure you return the laptop, charger and case. Students who are returning to LCES next school year may keep their laptops through the summer to continue distance learning.

Contactless Collection Reminders

We are so very excited to see our students and families on Friday. We've missed everyone so much! While we will be excited to see you, please remember (and remind the kids too!) that we still need to follow safe social distancing guidelines to keep ourselves and our community safe & healthy.

Here are a few helpful reminders:

  1. We will be wearing our personal protective equipment and we ask that you wear yours as well. This includes face masks and gloves.
  2. Help us maintain safe social distance by waving, sharing air hugs, air fist bumps, air high fives, etc. We want to hug you, but we can't right now!
  3. Please be prepared for contactless pick up and return of student materials. What does this mean for you?
    • It will be most helpful to us if we can put your child's or childrens' bag(s) of materials in your car without you coming out of your car. We can put items in the trunk or back seat of your car. Please make sure there is room in your trunk or backseat for the materials.
    • We will have plastic tubs we will use to collect or distribute smaller items. If you've been to a Chick-fil-A drive-thru, you know what we mean.
  4. If you have many bulky items to return, such as library books, or multiple patrol belts, please return them in a bag or box with handles to make them easier for us to retrieve safely.
  5. If you need to hand something off to us such as a bag, please wear gloves.
  6. Be prepared to wave, smile, sing and shout to share your love and good wishes! 
Yearbook Update

The GREAT news is that we will have a wonderful yearbook that truly captures what learning and growing in the 2019-2020 school year was like at Lees Corner and during Distance Learning!

We had hoped the yearbooks would be ready for distribution during curbside pickup, but the printing and delivery has been delayed due to COVID-19. We will share more information with you when we have it. 

Now we have ANOTHER great thing to look forward to!

LCES Updates 6/2/20: A Message from the Chantilly Pyramid Principals & LCES Staff

GovDelivery 2 months 1 week ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

A Message from the Chantilly Pyramid Principals

Dear Chantilly Pyramid Families and Community,

We reach out to you today as a united group of educators to acknowledge the events that have transpired portraying the anger and hurt that exists in our country.  Racism and hate have no place in the Chantilly Pyramid; rather, our schools are places that strive towards inclusiveness and compassion for all, while providing hope for the future. To our Black and African American families and community members, we echo the words of our Superintendent, Dr. Brabrand as he shared with FCPS staff, “We see you, we believe in you, and we stand with you.”

During this time, we will not sit silently. We have all worked together to create places and spaces where all are welcome and seen. In our classrooms and within our school communities, we will continue to learn about, value, and embrace each other’s differences while working to change the conditions that allow injustice.

At each of our schools, we have committed to bringing awareness to social and emotional issues within our buildings through an equity lens.  Every school in the Chantilly pyramid has an equity lead who partners with the Principal to ensure staff have the tools to recognize and take action on inequalities within our buildings. We are committed to this work and to our schools being beacons for change.

For many in our community, these events are recent, raw and understandably quite upsetting. It is important yet impossible to comprehend centuries of horrifying injustice against minorities in this nation, particularly African Americans. As a result, we work to educate our students to better understand. Two poignant resources for parents and teens include:

Please know that your schools are here for you and stand with our Black and African American community. It is the diversity of our community members who make the Chantilly pyramid a wonderfully unique place to live, work, learn and grow.  

We recognize that everyone may be impacted by these recent events differently and we welcome you to reach out to your school’s principal, school counselor, or clinical staff with any questions or concerns. Our email addresses can be found below. 

As a community, we are here for each other and we stand together.  

Sincerely,

Your Chantilly Pyramid Principals

While at school, staff members are collecting and bagging up all items from student desks, classroom wardrobes, and around the building. Please understand that during this process, some unmarked items may not have been able to be identified as belonging to a particular student.

We will be hosting the required contact less vehicle drive-thru pick up of these items by grade level. Grades K-5 families are scheduled for pickup on Friday, June 5th. Grade 6 families are scheduled to pick up items on Friday, June 12.

If you have multiple children at Lees Corner, you will only need to go through the drive-through once. Choose one of your child’s assigned grade level times, and you will be able to retrieve and/or drop off items for all your children at that time.

We are asking that you drop off textbooks, library books, patrol belts, reading bags for grades 1-3, and book club novels for grades 5 and 6 during this curbside pick up. Please bring these items with you and be prepared to drop them off. 

Classroom teachers may also send you a more specific list of items to be returned to school. Assigned devices should be returned ONLY for students moving to a new school. We are waiting on more details for 6th graders. 

Families will also be able to pick up medication left in the clinic. Medication and instrument pickup will take place in the bus loop/parking lot directly in front of the school.

If your child is currently a 6th grade band or strings student and you have, or are renting, a school or FCPS owned instrument OR you are moving, you will need to return the instrument to school during the time below, or by June 12th. Regardless of next year’s instrument choice, 4th and 5th graders are permitted to keep their current school rentals through the summer and do not need to return them until next school year. Please see the schedule below and the map above:
