Good Evening Alamosa Park Families, Thank you to all Alamosa Park students, teachers, support staff, and families for working together in making our first three weeks of learning successful. Collectively, everyone has been doing a nice job of working through login challenges and technology setbacks. I also appreciate all families who were able to attend our Virtual Back to School Night on the evening of last Thursday, 09/17. It was a nice way of communicating the learning plans from each teacher.
The purpose of this email is to inform all students and families about (1) a minor change in school-wide dismissal times that begins on Monday, September 28, and (2) the Dine-Out event sponsored by our Alamosa Park Education Foundation (APEF).
Dismissal Time Change starting Monday, 09/28/20 Starting this Monday, September 28, the daily school start and dismissal times for all students (Vista Classic, Vista Virtual, and DLI in-person students) will change from the current schedule to the new schedule (in orange below). Current Daily Schedule (ending on Friday, September 25, 2020)Grade LevelsMondaysTuesdays - Fridays Transitional Kindergarten & Kindergarten8:00 a.m. - 12:41 p.m.8:00 a.m. - 2:08 p.m. Grades 1 - 58:00 a.m. – 12:51 p.m.8:00 a.m. - 2:18 p.m. NEW Daily Schedule (starting Monday, September 28, 2020)Grade LevelsMondaysTuesdays - Fridays Transitional Kindergarten & Kindergarten8:00 a.m. - 12:50 p.m.8:00 a.m. - 2:06 p.m. Grades 1 - 58:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.8:00 a.m. - 2:16 p.m.
This change of dismissal times is due to all VUSD elementary school minutes not being in compliance with Senate Bill 98 standards. As a result, nine (9) minutes were added to the end of the day on Mondays and two (2) minutes were subtracted from every Tuesday through Friday. ALL students (Vista Classic, Vista Virtual, and DLI in-person) will be on this new daily schedule for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year and until further notice. Thank you for your understanding of this change in dismissal times for all VUSD elementary school students.
