Hello Tournament Hills Families,
"Welcome Back to the 2020-21 school year! The District is working with our leadership teams to change the 1st day of school from August 6, 2020, to August 10, 2020, providing the teachers additional time for collaboration and professional development for virtual learning. The start date will be confirmed this Friday, in the weekly communication from the District. If this is confirmed the 2020-21 Instructional Calendar will be modified to add October 9, 2020, and June 4, 2021, as student days.
The online virtual learning model is mandatory for all districts in our county at this time. If your child experienced virtual learning in the spring, it will now include live teacher/student interaction daily supported by a routine schedule. Teachers are prepared to deliver grade-level instruction using standards-based curriculum in the virtual platform. Many of our families are anticipating the complex challenges of our students learning from home, and as parents of school-aged children, we completely understand. We will do our best to create a positive and engaging experience for our students while online. Thank you, in advance, for your patience, flexibility, and support as we work through the challenges together.
What is "Virtual Learning"?
Virtual learning is connecting to the classroom and teacher from home. Students connect with their teacher by logging in to a virtual classroom using a District issued Chromebook or personal device. Teachers will provide live online instruction daily as well as independent work for students to complete on their own.
Virtual "Back To School" Night - Friday, August 7th
We are creating a Tournament Hills Elementary School Google Site with lots of information for our new virtual setting. The Google Site link will be available on August 5, 2020, and will be sent to you via e-mail and linked through our website. Back to School Nights Virtual Links will be sent via email and uploaded to our Google Site on August 6, 2020.
Also, please follow the time slots listed below so you don't miss the presentation by our teachers!
TK/Kindergarten: 5:20-5:55 pm
1st-5th Grade: 6:00 pm (session 1)
6:30 pm (session 2)
(You should only attend one session for each child)
In the past, we have used the “Illuminate Parent Portal” to provide our families with the ability to look up their child’s teacher after the yearly initial forms are completed through the system. The student's information system has now changed to Aeries which you will be receiving an email from them to create a log-in and complete the necessary yearly forms for your child. Once completed you should be able to view your child’s assigned teacher in the portal. Our teachers will also be reaching out prior to Back to School Night with any additional information they may have for their virtual classroom.
All school and teacher communication will be sent through the Parent Square communication system. Please check your email often for important information. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. If you have questions, you can call the front office at (951) 769-0711 or check our website at the.beaumontusd.us
