Weekly Update July 23, 2018

Welcome to the 18-19 school year. “This is your year.”  We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. After all, together we are building a community of learners. 

Please join us for one of our curriculum night open houses on the 24th at 5:00 and the 26th at 3:30 to meet our staff and learn how to navigate through Schoology, Edgenuity and Powerschool in order to support your child at home. Please bring your student computers and your students to curriculum night. 

I have included instructions for Schoology if you’d like to get a head start. Schoology will be used by each teacher to communicate assignments, important dates and communications home. Edgenuity is the online curriculum that your child will be using each day both in school and at home. Powerschool is the SIS in which your child’s grades are posted and accessible to you. We will also be informing you of all of the exciting upcoming events you can be a part of this year. 

Our school day starts promptly at 8:45 and ends at 3:10. Please do not drop students off before 8:30, as they will not be supervised until that time. Until I see you next week, here are a couple of notices. Please call or email with any questions or concerns. 

Please accept this invitation to open your Schoology account if you haven’t already.

How? 

  1. Login to PowerSchool at https://ps.vail.k12.az.us with your parent account.
  2. Once you have logged in, you should find a link to Schoology on the left side.
  3. After clicking that Schoology link, a new screen will appear that will provide step-by-step instructions for setting up your Schoology account.

Problems? 

  1. Did you forget your PowerSchool login info? Never received a PowerSchool logon? Please contact Kathleen Arvizu or email her at arvizuk@vailschoolistrict.org for assistance.
  2. Technical issues? Contact Wayne Gritis at 879-3007 or DeAun Nieto at 879-3060 or nietod@vailschooldistrict.org for assistance. We’d be happy to help!
  3. Like to figure it out yourself? Here is a nice set of instructions, including more background info regarding Schoology and info on setting up Schoology from a mobile device.

Planning on playing sports? All sports packets will be due before Friday, July 27th. There is transportation from VIC to Esmond Station after school for practice.
