Distance Learning Updates

Last night, Dr. Brabrand emailed the community with a comprehensive plan on addressing the challenges that have arisen with the current distance learning format. That letter can be found here. Details are as follows:

  • Students will resume asynchronous (independent) assignments today.  Your child's teacher will send a class email today with guidance on learning opportunities for today and then each day this week. 
  • Staff will be available to answer questions via email for students needing further assistance.
  • There will be no synchronous instruction on BBCU (Blackboard Collaborate Ultra) this week.
  • Additional learning resources beyond teacher directed learning are available: https://www.fcps.edu/academics/distance-learning/instruction/continuity-learning-resources/elementary-school

We will continue to provide updates regarding next steps beyond this week in the FCPS distance learning plan.  Please know that our teachers and staff have been working and adapting with every change to best teach our students in this new environment. As new plans are identified, the staff will continue to create assignments to engage students in meaningful learning activities.

Please let your children know that we miss them very much and we look forward to seeing them in our virtual classroom again very soon!   We thank you for your trust, your patience, and most of all, for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, or if we can support you and your child in any way.

Access to Live Learning Sessions

We look forward to the start of a great week of learning tomorrow morning!

Last week FCPS installed new procedures for students to access  their synchronous learning sessions. This new process starts tomorrow. 

Access to Blackboard Collaborate Ultra for the synchronous learning will be directly through your student's Backboard 24/7 Learn account log in.  Each course your student  is enrolled in will have a Collaborate Ultra Tab on the left which will provide this access.  

This short video highlights these steps.  Please watch the video  and practice this procedure prior to the start  of your learning session.  

Please delete any links that were previously sent to you as these are no longer valid.

Thank you for your patience throughout this process.  Our Sunrise Valley team is excited and ready to go for tomorrow!

Update on Today's Learning

Good Morning!

For today, Wednesday, April 15, teachers will not hold synchronous or live learning sessions in order to make the adjustments to the learning platform with the enhanced features.   

As you are aware, there has been a change in our schedule today that was determined by the division. During this delay, the Sunrise Valley staff is being trained on a new feature provided in Blackboard to all teachers in the division. This new feature will provide a better learning environment for teachers and students in every class.

The Blackboard Collaborate links that your child received prior to today are no longer valid, and students should delete that email. Students will now be able to access their teachers’ Blackboard Collaborate Ultra sessions directly from their class page in Blackboard 24-7.They will need to login to Blackboard 24-7 to access the session link. This new feature will also make keeping track of each teachers’  Blackboard Collaborate Ultra sessions easier for students. A helpful video to assist students in finding the link for their class session can be found here.

We truly appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we continue to navigate this new type of learning and the platforms by which we provide instruction. We are working diligently to ensure we provide the best experience possible for all our amazing students.

 

All the best,

Kevin West

Thank you for your patience!

Down in the Valley- Open Mic Session

We are excited forr Down in the Valley Open Mic Session 2, on Thursday, April 16 at 5pm via Blackboard Collaborate.  This week’s session will include SVES students, parents and teachers.  Be sure to tune in to see the show!

Here’s how it works: Click on this link.

  1. If your child has a talent to share (Singing, Instrument: guitar, piano, band or strings, recorder, Dance, Painting they made) click the Raise Hand at the bottom of your screen.  If your child doesn’t want to share, no problem, they can be the “audience.”
  2. I will moderate the session and call on acts in the order the hands are raised.  When I call your name unmute your mic (click on the mic button at the bottom of the screen) and be sure your video is on (next to the mic button) and your child can perform or show their artwork.  When your child is done performing lower your hand and mute your mic.
  3. Please be patient – this will be our first attempt at a live virtual student showcase.  😊

All acts must be school appropriate.

Future open mic sessions will include fun themes!  Family acts, Teachers, SVES alumni, the possibilities are endless!  If you have a theme in mind, just let me know! 

Helpful Hints:  Have a parent or capable sibling hold the computer or phone for the performer.  Be close enough to the camera for the audience to hear and see clearly.  If the first attempt at performing doesn’t go as planned, just re-raise your hand when you’re ready and I’ll call on you for a second try.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Jody Delaney at jmdelaney@fcps.edu and Heather Smith at hmsmith@fcps.edu

Thanks everyone, hope to see you at the “show!”
