Weekly Updates

March 22, 2020

Hello VAPA Community! This is Dr. Trimis with a few announcements! ¡Hola Comunidad de VAPA! Este es el Dr. Trimis con algunos anuncios!

Please note that schools in LAUSD including school offices are closed for the next week. Superintendent Beutner is planning to provide an update on Monday, 3/23/20, 11am to be broadcast on KLCS-TV and online in English and Spanish. We will more information after the update on Monday.

It is critical that all of our students continue to meet with their teachers in Schoology or Zoom live conferences, stay in contact their teachers through e-mail, and continue to complete assigned school work and assessments. Grades are due next week from teachers and I am concerned that many students are not on track. Though we frequently hear “school is closed”, in fact, though our buildings are closed, we are continuing with teaching and learning through an online or virtual platform. Online learning is a legitimate form of instruction and can be effective, but students and their teachers must be engaged and participate for the system to work.

Grab N Go centers, like the one at South Gate High School, will be open next week from 7am-11am. Thousands of meals were served last week.

Free home WiFi options are posted on the ITD HomePage: bit.ly/itdhelp and can be coordinated via Charter Spectrum or Comcast.

Technical Support Most technical support issues can be resolved over the phone via the Crisis Hotline posted on the ITD Homepage. For families: (213) 443-1300 and For employees: (213) 241-2700. Call centers are open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Los Angeles Unified, PBS SoCal | KCET, and KLCS-TV have partnered to provide free supplemental educational resources on live television and online to help your family support learning during the school closures. Grades 9–12 KCET (Channel 28.1) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. KLCS (Channel 58.1) from 2 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Please check the LAUSD website at www.lausd.net or the VAPA website at www.vapalegacy.com for updates. There are two hot lines available for info, as well. For families at 213-443-1300 and for employees at 213-241-2700.

Please be careful, be safe, for students, engage in our virtual learning. I’ll plan on seeing you as soon as possible.

Take care,

Dr. Edward Trimis, Principal
