HES School House News June 11, 2020

 

Hayfield Elementary Families:

What a whirlwind of a year it has been! None of us could have predicted the magnitude of the situation our world has been in and that we would end our 2019-2020 school year virtually. Our staff continues to miss our students on a daily basis and look forward to the day when we can see each other again. We have to share how grateful we are to our teachers and resource/support staff for all of their hard work and dedication as they took on the new challenge of Distance Learning. We are also grateful to you for the unending support you have provided to your children and to our staff as we figured all of this out together. Hayfield continues to be a very strong community of people who do whatever it takes to support one another.

As we finish this school year strong, we are also doing all we can to prepare for next school year. We would like to share the following changes to our staffing for the 2020-2021 school year:

  1. Janey Markon will be moving to 5thgrade
  2. Jeff Brown will be moving to 6thgrade
  3. Lauren Joseph will be moving to 6thgrade
  4. Tracy Henderson will be moving to 4thgrade

We also want to wish the following Hawks all the best as they spread their wings and take on new challenges for next school year:

  1. Lynn Schwartz, 1stGrade Teacher
  2. Kate Cordell, 6thGrade Teacher
  3. Nicole McGuigan, Instructional Assistant
  4. Ruth Drickey, Health & PE Teacher
  5. Maggie Gawen, Advanced Academics Resource Teacher

We wish you and your family a safe summer. As we learn more about what the 2020-2021 school year will bring, we will be sure to communicate with you early and often.

Take care,

Jessica Lewis and Samantha Goldstein

  Reminder Regarding Teacher Requests at HES for the 2020-2021 School Year

As we begin planning for the next school year, one of our most challenging tasks is creating class groupings. It is very important to have balanced classes that reflect the diversity of our students. These decisions are made with input from your child’s current teacher. We ask parents who have special considerations to submit their requests in writing, telling us about your child’s learning style, strengths and weaknesses. You may also want to list characteristics of a teacher that would best match your student’s needs. Requests for specific teachers will not be honored. All requests should be emailed to jrlewis@fcps.edu. The deadline for submitting requests is the last day of school for students (June 12). We appreciate, in advance, your support and cooperation with this process.

 

  HES Distance Learning

Students may continue to use online resources provided by HES and FCPS over the summer. Hayfield’s Distance Learning Site will remain accessible in the Blackboard 24/7 Learning Portal. Any laptops that were distributed to students will remain with the student until more information is provided by FCPS.

STANDING STRONG TOGETHER

GovDelivery 1 month 1 week ago

Dear Hayfield Families,

There is so much going on in our world today! In addition to navigating the changes of living life in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are aware of the many emotions in response to the civil unrest that has been occurring in our country over the last several weeks. Both sets of events have shed light on how much work we have ahead of us to establish and provide a culturally responsive learning environment for our students, staff, and school community. We are proud of the diversity that is represented within our Hayfield community and are committed to making sure each and every student feels safe and valued.

Part of that work will include engagement in the hard conversations of race and justice. We recognize how hard this task will be, and we ask for your support and collaboration. While it may be uncomfortable, children are capable of understanding and having developmentally appropriate conversations about race. We have shared, below, additional resources to support you in this process of clarifying and disseminating difficult thoughts and feelings with the adults and especially the children around you at this time.

In addition, our teachers have been provided with resources should our students have questions or desire to talk about these issues during our last few days of Distance Learning and in the future. Know that, even virtually, we are still here to support your family. Take good care!

 

Jessica Lewis and Samantha Goldstein

HES School House News May 7, 2020

We were so excited to see our students in their virtual classrooms for the past two weeks!  The students are doing a great job participating in their lessons and being good digital citizens. Our staff continues to work hard planning and preparing for synchronous and asynchronous learning. We appreciate our teachers year-round, but this week is a special time to say thank you and honor their service to our students and our community. We appreciate their dedication and commitment to all of our HES Hawks!

  Tips for FCPS Families

Dear Hayfield Families,

As we all navigate through these challenging times, the student support team has come together to share some resources you might find helpful when working with your children. These resources include, but are not limited to, stress relief tools, internet safety and student wellness. As always, we are here to support you and your family and know that we will all come out of this as stronger and more resilient citizens. We hope you find these tools helpful.

Visual Schedule

Most students are more comfortable knowing what is coming next in their day so a visual schedule can be a very helpful aid. We all know that flexibility is necessary as well, but it is still beneficial for kids to have a basic outline. This can be as easy as a chart you draw on a white board or paper that breaks up the day into chunks. Wake up time, breakfast, quiet reading, TV time, online school work, outside time, exercise, and lunch times are all examples of different categories to incorporate.You can work with your child to create this schedule and don’t worry about scheduling every minute, just use a broad approach to breaking up the day. The students are used to seeing their days broken up and it prepares them for transitions. Some students may even need a 5 minute warning before transitioning to the next activity. This may be particularly needed when a student is moving from a preferred activity (video games) to an unpreferred activity (reading). Some students benefit from doing a little school work then a break and then returning to school work while others may do best getting all the work done and then transitioning to activities they choose. Choose the system that you think will work for your child and let them know that you can work together to make changes if something isn’t working. Here are a couple articles and examples of visual schedules.

http://gelds.decal.ga.gov/Documents/LearningResources/PositiveBehavioratHomeTipsheet.pdf

https://blog.chocchildrens.org/establishing-structure-and-routine-for-kids-during-covid-19/

Calm Corner

Creating a calm corner or "take a break" spot can be really beneficial for kids that are dealing with big feelings. This is not a punishment but an opportunity for a child to calm him or herself down so that they can discuss and work to solve whatever situation is causing the turmoil. There are a lot of different resources you could have at this space but it will differ for each child. Some may want his/her headphones with music, drawing tools and paper, or a stress ball and bubbles.Talk to your child about what works for him/her and then make a list of the options they came up with so they have some choices available. See the link for more ideas on creating a calming corner in your home.

Breathing Strategies

Breathing strategies may seem simple and cliche but they really work when they are done effectively. Think of times when you are frustrated or angry and how a few minutes away from the situation with some deep breaths can help you regain composure. The same is true for children. We have worked with our students on breathing exercises at school so they should be familiar with the term “Elevator breathing”, “Hot Cocoa breathing”, and “Figure 8 breathing”. No matter what it is called, the best strategy is to breathe in through your nose and hold for 4 seconds and then exhale slowly through your mouth.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaCACkuZ2bU&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR3G7BO71x7Pf6MiSSEmjYU2AKSYJStIlgOlB9y9DJKH24vUCiNFbI7a1P4

This site offers some great mindfulness and breathing tools for students and tips for parents.

https://positivepsychology.com/mindfulness-for-children-kids-activities/

Grounding Technique

Utilizing grounding techniques can be useful for anxiety in kids and adults. Try this simple one if someone in your home is struggling with anxiety.

5-4-3-2-1 Coping Technique for Anxiety

5: Acknowledge FIVE things you see around you. It could be a pen, a spot on the ceiling, anything in your surroundings.

4: Acknowledge FOUR things you can touch around you. ...

3: Acknowledge THREE things you hear. ...

2: Acknowledge TWO things you can smell. ...

1: Acknowledge ONE thing you can taste.

Model

One of the best things you can do for your students during this time is to talk to them about how hard this is and ask them to tell you how they are feeling. However, there is a fine line between complaining and venting to our children and talking to them about our feelings. A great strategy is to use “I feel” statements as much as possible. “I feel really frustrated that your class was cancelled today. How are you feeling?”. It is also important to think about the next step in the process, the “now what” part. It is great for you to talk to your student about what you do when you feel angry or even model it in the moment. “I feel really angry and overwhelmed right now so I need to take some deep breaths before I talk with you” or “I feel frustrated and I need to take 5 minutes outside”. You can show your kids that it is okay to feel those big feelings but that you also need to use strategies to help cope with them. Of course, none of us do this perfectly every time and we can still use it as a learning tool when we let our frustrations get the best of us. Once everyone has calmed down, you can go back and address the situation. Something like “We both lost it earlier. I wish I would have walked away instead of yelling like that. What do you wish you did differently?”.

Internet Safety

Students are spending a lot more time online these days and for good reason. The internet is full of great learning resources and is a way for kids to connect with their peers. We have gathered a few online safety resources for you to review with your students to ensure they are being safe with this extra time online.

Student Wellness Tips

Let’s make sure we are trying to keep our immune systems as healthy as possible during this time. Try to keep a healthy diet and work some fruits and vegetables into each meal. It can also help to stick to a routine bedtime/wake time to ensure kids are getting the sleep they need (8-10 hours). Try some mindfulness videos or soothing music as you (or your student) is getting ready for bed to try to unwind your brain and prepare for sleep. Try to get outside as much as possible! Vitamin D can make a huge difference in our mood and is important to building our immune system. Bring your lunch outside and have a picnic, take the dog for a walk together, play tag, or just sit outside and take some deep breaths. Make sure to model the self care that you need so that your kids can see how important it is!

HES School House News April 24, 2020 Third Quarter Grading Updates

Due to last week’s pause in teacher-led “live” instruction, the third quarter has been extended until Friday, May 1, 2020. Students will work with their teachers to make up third quarter missing/incomplete assignments and complete reassessments by May 1, 2020. 

ParentVUE/StudentVUE access will be turned off to allow for teachers to enter grades from Friday, May 1 through Friday, May 8. Grades will be available in ParentVUE/StudentVUE on Saturday, May 9.

Report card mailings will begin on May 12, 2020 to elementary school level parents and/or guardians.

Parents and/or guardians at the elementary school level do not have the “Go Paperless” option this school year. If they have secondary students, they may opt to “Go Paperless” to discontinue printed secondary level report cards but they will still receive printed ES Progress Reports for their elementary students this school year. We anticipate releasing the paperless option to elementary school students in school year 20/21.

 

Student Support During School Closure

Hello Hawk families,

The student support team wants you to know that we miss you and we are here for you! We know how challenging this time is for our students and parents so we wanted to offer some resources to help during this time. We have also added some activities and resources on the Blackboard site under the tab labeled “Student Support”. You will see there are folders for students in K-2, 3-6, and parent resources and we will continuously update the folders. We have also included some essential information below so that you can have it all in one spot.

  • Tuesday will be Proud to be an American – wear red, white and blue. 
  • Wednesday will be Purple Up Day – wear purple.
  • Thursday will be Camo Day – wear your camouflage clothes.

Please take a photo (jpeg format please) of your messages and spirit wear and send to Lisa Warden, lbwarden@fcps.edu

We are so pleased to celebrate you!

 

From Our Parent Liaison

Given the community spread of COVID-19 occurring in Fairfax, the Health Department cannot complete contact investigations on all COVID-19 cases. Therefore, the Department has developed a toolkit for people to use to prevent the spread of the disease as well as how to communicate with your contacts about it.

Toolkit Site: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/health/novel-coronavirus/toolkit-slow-spread

You can easily change the language of the page by choosing a language near the top and can find copies of the toolkit to download in seven languages by scrolling down.

The three primary sites that you can use to find information about COVID-19 are below. In each, one can easily access many more resources and information.

Neighborhood Health – All locations providing services. Services have transitioned to telehealth visits. Call 703-535-5568 prior to accessing services so patients can be screened over the phone. COVID-19 Updates at http://neighborhoodhealthva.org/patients-service-changes/

HES-Blackboard Update

GovDelivery 2 months 3 weeks ago

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

Hayfield Families:

Thank you for your flexibility and patience this past week as we needed to take a step back to take steps forward regarding the use of Blackboard. Moving forward, students will access their teacher’s Blackboard Collaborate Ultra session by logging in to Blackboard. Emails with links to sessions and recordings will no longer be needed. These emails that contain previous Blackboard Collaborate links should be deleted. Please take a moment to view this very short video about how you will support your student in joining the synchronous one-hour sessions for each grade level by clicking here.

Should Blackboard not be functional on Monday, our teachers are prepared to send you an email with activities that your children will be able to work on asynchronously. Hayfield Elementary teachers are committed to continuing the learning and supporting all of our Hawks! We continue to miss our students and are excited to reconnect very soon.

HES School House News April 16, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are so grateful for your patience and flexibility as we work through the journey in Distance Learning. Our teachers have been working hard to plan exciting lessons and were elated to be reconnected with their students in the virtual classroom. We will continue to communicate any updates regarding Distance Learning as needed. As always if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher or an administrator. We hope that your families are doing well through this challenging time.

Jessica Lewis and Samantha Goldstein

 

Here is some additional information about Distance Learning:

What is synchronous versus asynchronous learning?

Synchronous Learning

Asynchronous Learning

 

  • Direct interaction between teachers and students in real time
  • Students learn at the same time, often at a scheduled class time
  • Requires students and teachers to be online at a specific time
  • Allows for instant feedback and clarification
  • Checking in, Q & A, discussions and presentations occur at specific times in an online setting
  • Communication is not live in real-time
  • Teachers provide materials (videos, assignments, activities, links) that students can access at different times
  • Students learn at different times throughout the week
  • Flexible and allows students to work at their own pace
  • Feedback is provided to the student through collaborative tools and email

 

 

What resource will my student be working on?
  • FCPS 24-7 Learning/Blackboard
Where will they complete the assignment?

 FCPS 24-7 Learning/Blackboard, Google Classroom, or an alternative application

How will I know what grade they earned?
  • No grades will be assigned to work completed after 3/13/2020. Teachers will provide feedback on the work being completed moving forward.
Essential Tips for Working and Learning from Home

 Here are a few tips to help students find success in this new environment:

  1. Take a deep breath
  2. Continue to maintain family norms and be supportive
  3. Know that you are doing the best you can
  4. Celebrate your accomplishments and progress

Dear Hayfield Families:

We are excited to start Distance Learning tomorrow, April 14, 2020. Included in this message you will find important information that will be useful as we embark on this new adventure. The HES Distance Learning Site will be available for access in Blackboard 24/7 Learning the morning of April 14.Teacher-directed instruction might look different each day. Sometimes teachers might be speaking with students live and it may be interactive. On other days they might be pre-recorded videos and check-in with students later in the day to provide feedback. This is new learning for all of us. Our teachers will make virtual content lessons available so that you can watch at a convenient time with your child. We know that some families have several children sharing devices.  Please stay flexible, positive and communicate regularly with your child’s classroom teacher.

As always, do not hesitate to reach out with questions. We look forward to embarking on this journey together!

 

24-7 Learning Instructions

The course your child(ren) will access is titled: HES Distance Learning Site

When a student logs into Blackboard 24/7 Learning they will see:

 

The main menu is set up similar to our school website which allows for easy navigation to your child(ren)’s grade level(s) as well as other academic areas. Be sure to check out our WHES News Show! This production will be added weekly and will be available every Monday (first episode available April 14).

Dear Hayfield Elementary Families:

As we continue to prepare for Distance Learning, which begins Tuesday, April 14, we wanted to give you a few more details about what you can expect. Please review the information below and continue to communicate with your child’s teacher, counselor, and administration about any questions you might have. Thank you for your continued flexibility and understanding as we continue to navigate these unchartered waters together.

GRADING

No fourth quarter grades will be assigned to elementary students due to equity issues of access to technology and limited student ability to submit work during distance learning.  Teachers will provide ongoing feedback to students through the Distance Learning experience.

 

PACKETS

Elementary students will engage in teacher-led and independent learning.  Learning packets will continue to be distributed by mail to all PK-6 students on a weekly basis through the end of the academic year. Both review material and new content in literacy and math will be included in the packets. In the coming weeks, science and social studies content will be added. There is no expected order or schedule to begin working on the packet. Teachers will not be collecting or grading them; however they may be referenced from time to time during virtual instruction. 

 

CABLE LESSONS

Content lessons in math & literacy are available on FCPS Cable Channel 21. Families can also access these programs online at www.fcps.edu/tv. Read alouds will be available in different languages. 

 

TEACHER INSTRUCTION

What’s most important to remember is that this instruction will never be as powerful as our classroom experiences. We’ve shared with our teachers that they are moving from a role as a facilitator to a coach. Students have moved from a highly structured daily schedule at school to a fluid, more self-directed schedule. Our expectation is that families will continue to work in ways that best support their entire family’s needs. 

Please expect adjustments as teachers are learning to teach in this new “classroom.” One day may look different from the day before as teachers figure out how to meet the many needs of students and families. Here are some ways your child’s teacher will be providing instruction and learning activities:

  • Leading instructional activities for up to an hour via Blackboard Collaborate. Each teacher will email a link to enter their live video-conferencing session. Instruction might be a discussion or a morning meeting or reading a story together or solving a math problem together. These sessions will be recorded and can be watched later if a student cannot access them at the scheduled time for the live session.
  • Posting tasks & activities on the Blackboard website that support learning. Specialists in Art, Music, STEM & PE will also be posting activities. Again, there is no schedule for completing these. Your child’s specialist teacher will be available during posted office hours for questions/check-ins.
  • Some teachers have set up Google Classroom for their students. If your child has tasks to complete in Google Classroom, they will post that in Blackboard first.
  • Here are the 1-hour blocks that each grade level will be on Blackboard Collaborate for synchronous learning time:

Grade

Day of the Week

Time

Kindergarten

Monday - Thursday

8:30-9:30

1st Grade

Monday - Thursday

9:30-10:30

2nd Grade

Monday - Thursday

10:30-11:30

3rd Grade

Monday - Thursday

11:30-12:30

4th Grade

Monday - Thursday

12:30-1:30

5th Grade

Monday - Thursday

1:30-2:30

6th Grade

Monday - Thursday

2:30-3:30

 

COMMUNICATION

Teachers will provide a scheduled time when they are available to connect with students and families (aka “office hours”). It’s a time to ask questions and share any updates, not for individualized instruction. Teachers may use Blackboard Collaborate, the telephone, or email to connect with students/families and to answer questions.
