7th Grade

 

Dear Masuda Seventh Grade Families:


We hope that you are doing well during this unique and ever-changing situation.  FVSD remains dedicated to supporting students during school closures by providing Distance Learning Activities.  We understand this is an unsettling time for you and your children, and want to reassure everyone that our entire FVSD staff is committed to continuing to support student learning.  


Please know that student work during closures will not be graded, and that our goal is to provide families of middle school students with no more than 30-minutes of learning activities per content area on a daily basis. 

 

Quick Note to Parents/Caregivers: 

Every child is at a different level and works at a different pace. Please adjust and modify the work as needed. Learning at home will look different than it does in our classrooms. Most students work best in the morning hours. You may want to create and post a schedule that works well for your family.

 

Virtual Connecting:

Academic subjects will be meeting/offering video connection twice weekly.  Students should continue to check their SchoolLoop daily.  Teachers will post sessions as “assignments” which should show up on the students’ calendars.  Alternately, students will receive an email invitation to the session. *Elective/PE will also be meeting--possibly less frequently.

 

FVSD does not authorize any recording of audio or video, or screen captures of any Distance Learning Activities by students or families.
