Good morning SCVTS Educational Community,
Today marks the end of the 2019/20 school year, and what a year it has been. I hope you have been able to make the best of these trying times and remain hopeful about our future.
We at SCVTS are working hard to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our students and staff both during any allowable summer programming and at the start of the 2020/21 school year. Of course much is contingent on the trajectory of the coronavirus. We will, however, do whatever is necessary to
provide the best academic, career and technical education available including all of our student support systems.
SCVTS staff will be focused over the summer on the school's reopening plans in consultation with the Departments of Health and Education and also with guidance from the Office of Emergency Management and law enforcement. We will share those plans once available. Teachers will be focused on increasing their expertise in remote learning and we will move to more rigorous models of learning, be it in person, remote, or a hybrid in the Fall.
Linkages school-based and SCVTS school counselors will be available over the summer for students with social/emotional, or health and wellness concerns (or just to reach out and stay connected with our community).
On July 6th we will begin transitioning some administrative and support staff into the building and our hours of operation will be from 6:30 AM- 3:30 PM Monday through Friday, unless otherwise posted. Most teachers are 10-month employees and may not be readily available, whereas administrators are available throughout the school year. Email provides the safest and most efficient way to message us.
We are all following the Governor's executive orders and restrictions as they develop, and sometimes have to read the "fine print" in order to make decisions that sometimes encompass conflicting parameters issued by other entities affecting us. Be assured that we will provide every available safety measure before moving to in-person instruction and programs. The summer will provide us with opportunities to develop and test best practices on our site.
Please check our website periodically for updates and your emails for our requests for information. Your information and feedback will assist us in developing our multifaceted and multidirectional plans.
Thank you all, for your hard work and perseverance during this most challenging and uncertain time. We look forward to tackling the next challenges we face, together as one SCVTS school community.
Have a wonderful summer!
