CVHS Update 3/29

Wildcat Families,

I hope everyone is doing well.  By now, I’m sure most of you have read Dr. Brabrand’s message about the distance learning plan.  Please be sure to keep up with the latest information by visiting https://www.fcps.edu/news/coronavirus-update

CVHS staff will be meeting virtually and participating in training throughout this week to be best prepared for delivering online lessons.  I will send an update to the community after we have a chance to further review the plan with the staff.  Stay tuned for an update later this week with more details and answers to some frequently asked questions.

Thank you, and continue to stay positive and stay healthy.

Update from the Principal

March 23, 2020

Wildcat Families,

I hope everyone is staying healthy during this extended closure.  I wanted to answer a few commonly asked questions below that I have been receiving from parents and students.  I expect further developments this week and will send another update when information is available. 

1. What should students be doing for classes and learning?

  • Establish a regular learning routine and schedule for each day.
  • Students should engage in reading every day both for class activities and choice reading for pleasure.
  • Check Blackboard and/or Google Classroom regularly along with the student fcspschools email account. Teachers will use these platforms to post optional assignments and to communicate with students.
  • Exercise and engage in other wellness activities of your choice daily.
  • Check out the FCPS learning activities available at https://www.fcps.edu/node/40447

As Dr. Brabrand stated in his last communication to parents on March 19, the division is currently working hard to further develop a distance learning plan should schools remain closed beyond April 14.  Further details will be shared when ready.

2. What is happening with SOL and AP testing?

  • I expect language from the division about testing soon and will send it as soon as possible.
  • The U.S. Secretary of Education announced on March 20, 2020, students impacted by school closures due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic can bypass standardized testing for the 2019-2020 school year. In response to this announcement, additional guidance from VDOE and the State Superintendent on SOL testing is forthcoming.
  • College Board posted updates about AP exams on their website. Here is the latest from FCPS about AP testing - https://www.fcps.edu/news/fcps-shares-important-updates-ap-and-ib-students

3. What is happening with 3rd quarter grades?

  • A decision about 3rd quarter grades, or a timeline for grading, has not been finalized. I will share any updates soon.

4. Are we able to use the athletic fields and track?

  • FCPS has asked that fields be closed. This is to help reduce gatherings of people and our ability to maintain the fields is limited at this time.

5. When can I come to the school to pick-up items?

  • For now, the school remains closed. We will let you know ASAP if an opportunity to visit the school is allowed.  If your student needs their laptop, please email ndavis@fcps.edu. 

6. What is happening with prom and graduation?

  • FCPS is determining what might need to happen with these events. No decisions have been made at this time.  These events are very important, and all options are being explored.

7. What if I need a transcript, or need to contact my school counselor?

I recognize that we don’t have definitive answers for many questions at this point; you can email me if you have a specific question or need.  For updates and further information such as food and mental health resources, please continue to visit the FCPS website at https://www.fcps.edu/news/coronavirus-update.

I greatly appreciate the support and patience the Wildcat community has shown school staff during this difficult time.  Having two children at home myself, I appreciate the challenges we are all facing in trying to balance home-schooling, work, and family demands.  We are fortunate to have an amazing CVHS school community, and I am grateful to be partnered with you as we work through this challenge together.  Please continue to enjoy time with your families, and I will send any new information as soon as possible.

Update 3/15

GovDelivery 2 weeks 4 days ago

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

Wildcat Families,

I hope everyone has been able to enjoy some time this weekend despite our current challenges.  As you saw from Dr. Brabrand’s email this afternoon, all schools and offices are closed.  The scheduled opportunity for students and staff to retrieve their belongings has been postponed. Student and staff well-being is paramount at this time, so there is no access to the building until further notice.  I will let you know as soon as this changes.

Given the nature of all that is going on, I recognize that we are all feeling nervous and anxious about the impact on students and the community.  For now, please take any opportunity to rest and take care of yourself and your loved ones.  I know there are a lot of questions about instruction and online learning opportunities.  At this time, there is to be no required instruction or required assignments for any course.  Any activities are optional and not graded.  Our current concern is about health and safety and not about assignments. More information is expected from the division about continuity of learning opportunities, so I will send any updates as they are available.

I will be sure to keep you updated while also trying not to be redundant and not inundating you with information that only changes a few hours later.  You can reach out to me via email if you have any questions or concerns.  Again, please stay safe, healthy, and positive.  More information coming soon.

Wildcat Community,

As a follow-up to Dr. Brabrand’s message, I want to reiterate that the most important thing to keep in mind is the health and well-being of our students, families, and staff.  

The school will be open from 9:00 - 2:00 on Monday, March 16, for students to access their belongings.  Please make sure students have their laptops and any other materials they may need from the school.  Students will need to enter the main entrance and come to the main office when entering the school. 

Please note the language in the Superintendent’s message around student learning during this school closure.  Staff will be working to provide continuation of learning opportunities and resources for students.  As directed, these are to be optional and non-graded.  We encourage parents to partner with us as we seek to keep students engaged in learning.  We know this will require a great deal of flexibility and understanding on everyone's part as we navigate this new territory.  We want students to continue learning, but also recognize this is an unprecedented circumstance requiring a lot of patience.

I know many students will be concerned about grades, SOL tests, AP exams, graduation, college acceptances, etc…  I ask that we do our best to take a deep breath and relax for now.  Everyone’s health is the priority, and we will get through this together.

I will share more guidance as I have information, but please enjoy this weekend and stay safe.

Message from the Principal

Wildcat Parents,

Thank you for your patience and flexibility over the last couple of weeks as FCPS grapples with the impact of the COVID-19 virus.  These are challenging times, but I am proud of the way the Wildcat community has supported each other and demonstrated a partnership with the school in working through the complexities.  We are continuously monitoring the situation and will adjust as needed.  As a school staff, we are taking the steps outlined by the division to address concerns and to be prepared as best we can for any next steps.  We remain focused on staying positive while supporting students and ensuring quality daily instruction.   Please continue to check FCPS' Coronavirus page for all COVID-19 updates.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  March 12, 2020

VHSL state basketball tournament will play Friday and Saturday with limited family attendance;

Thursday’s tournament schedule will go as planned

 

Charlottesville, Va. – Due to the rapidly changing landscape regarding COVID-19, the VHSL Basketball Tournament is announcing that the games for Friday and Saturday will be played with only direct family members in the stands from both teams due to the threat of the novel coronavirus. Today’s schedule will go as planned.  

“The VHSL continues to assess the impact of COVID-19 and has had continued discussions with public health officials and key stakeholders," VHSL Executive Director Dr. John W. “Billy” Haun said. "Based on that advice we have made the decision to conduct Friday and Saturday games to only allow immediate family attendance, with only essential tournament staff and credentialed media present.

“While we understand how disappointing this is for all fans of our teams, our decision is based on discussion we have had on how COVID-19 is progressing in the Commonwealth.

Eating Disorder Parent Letter and Fact Sheet

GovDelivery 1 month 2 weeks ago

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

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Eating disorders are behaviors that can lead to serious health problems. These behaviors can begin as a child, and affect both girls and boys. When discovered early, eating disorders are treatable. In 2013, Virginia passed a law requiring every school system provide information to parents annually about eating disorders. This information is given to parents of students in the fifth through twelfth grades.

 

It is important to note that eating disorders are not identified based on weight changes as much as behaviors and attitudes. Signs of eating disorders may differ between males and females and in different age groups. Often, a young person may not recognize the signs that they might have an eating disorder. Parents/guardians and family members are in a position to notice behaviors that cause concern. It is important that a child with an eating disorder be treated early by someone who understands this type of care.

 

After reviewing the information at the bottom of this letter, if you think your child may be showing signs of a possible eating disorder, please contact your doctor, school nurse, or one of the resources listed below.

Eating Disorders Fact Sheet

What Are Eating Disorders?

Eating disorders are conditions that can have a serious effect on health. They are serious behaviors that affect every aspect of the child’s life. Eating disorders may be identified based on weight changes, but also based on behaviors and attitudes. Be alert for any of these signs in your child.

 

Key things to look for around food:

  • Eating a lot of food that seems out of control (large amounts of food may disappear, you find a lot of empty wrappers hidden)
  • Develops food rules—may eat only a particular food or food group, cuts food into very small pieces, or spreads food out on the plate
  • Talks a lot about, or focuses often, on weight, food, calories, fat grams, and dieting
  • Often says that they are not hungry
  • Skips meals or takes small portions of food at regular meals
  • Cooks meals or treats for others but won’t eat them
  • Avoids mealtimes or situations involving food
  • Goes to the bathroom after meals often
  • Uses a lot of mouthwash, mints, and/or gum
  • Starts cutting out foods that he or she used to enjoy 

Key things to look for around activity:

  • Exercises all the time, more than what is healthy or recommended – despite weather, lack of energy, illness, or injury
  • Stops doing their regular activities, spends more time alone (can be spending more time exercising)

Physical Risk Factors:

  • Feels cold all the time or complains of being tired all the time. Likely to become more irritable and/or nervous.
  • Any vomiting after eating (or see signs in the bathroom of vomiting – smell, clogged shower drain)
  • Any use of laxatives or diuretics (or you find empty packages)

Other Risk Factors:

  • Believes that they are too big or too fat (regardless of reality)
  • Asks often to be reassured about how they look
  • Stops hanging out with their friends
  • Not able to talk about how they are feeling
  • Reports others are newly judgmental or “not connecting”

Eating disorders affect both males and females of all ages.

Weight is NOT the only indicator of an eating disorder, as people of all sizes may be suffering.

 

If Your Child Shows Signs of a Possible Eating Disorder

Seek help from your doctor as soon as possible; a child with an eating disorder should be seen by someone who understands the treatment of eating disorders. The earlier a person with an eating disorder seeks treatment, the greater the likelihood of physical and emotional recovery.

 

How to Communicate with Your Child

  • Understand that eating disorder sufferers often deny that there is a problem.
  • Educate yourself on eating disorders
  • Ask what you can do to help
  • Listen openly and reflectively
  • Be patient and nonjudgmental
  • Talk with your child in a kind way when you are calm and not angry, frustrated, or upset
  • Let him/her know you only want the best for him/her
  • Remind your child that he/she has people who care and support him/her
  • Be flexible and open with your support
  • Be honest
  • Show care, concern, and understanding
  • Ask how he/she is feeling
  • Try to be a good role model- don’t engage in ‘fat talk’ about yourself
  • Understand that your child is not looking for attention or pity
  • Seek professional help on behalf of your child if you have ANY concerns

Safety Drill Conducted

CVHS Parents,

Every school facility in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) has in place crisis management and emergency preparedness plans, designed with the help of the school system’s security planning staff, local law enforcement, and emergency management officials. Plans are regularly reviewed and updated. The plans include procedures to respond to critical incidents, like fire and tornadoes, and we practice these drills regularly.

A lockdown is a well-established procedure designed to protect students and staff members in a case in which there might be threats of violence within a school. During a lockdown, students remain in their classrooms or are escorted to classrooms if they are in the halls, and all interior and exterior doors are closed and locked. Once the facility is rendered safe and students are accounted for, the school is returned to normal operation. 

While we have no reason to believe that any threat of violence will arise, it is always best to be prepared. It is important to train students and staff members so that we can effectively implement a lockdown in the event one becomes necessary. Training helps ensure a calmer, more effective lockdown.

To implement this training, our school has conducted a lockdown drill today. This drill went smoothly and students are back in class and have resumed instruction. This drill was conducted in collaboration with the FCPS Office of Safety and Security. 

We appreciate your continued support in these matters.

Volunteer Hours Deadline for Seniors

Attention seniors: Wednesday, April 22, 2020 is the deadline for submitting volunteer hours in X2VOL and cleaning up any issues relating to hours claimed. Remember that you need 40 verified service hours over a 4-year period to earn a black service learning cord for graduation. Cords will be handed out at graduation practice at no cost. To receive the Virginia State Civic Service diploma seal, you need 50 hours of verified service as part of a larger award criteria that includes grades, attendance and overall behavior.

If you have submitted service hours but they have not been approved, it may be because the adult point of contact has not verified your hours. The hours MUST be verified by the adult supervisor (not a parent and not a student) before they will be approved. When volunteering, please tell your adult contact to verify your hours when they receive the email. If you have questions, please see Mrs. Armstrong in the 3rd floor subschool.
