Dear Parents/Guardians, On behalf of everyone at Vaughn, we wish to thank you for your continuous support throughout this school year and look forward to partnering with you again in 2022-2023. While this year has been eventful for all, with a lot of celebrations and challenges for our school and for our community, we want to assure you that we will continue to work with you to ensure a safe, secure, and rigorous learning experience for your child going forward. Here are a few important updates: The 2022-2023 school year will start on Monday, August 1, 2022. Our registration and compact signing for the 2021-2022 school year will be online using our Aeries Parent Portal. The registration and compact will be available in the Aeries Parent Portal beginning July 6, 2022 and we ask that you complete it by July 22, 2022. You will login to your Aeries Parent Portal Account and complete the registration and compact in the same manner as last year. If you forgot your Parent Portal password please click on “Reset Password” on the login page and it will send an email with instructions for resetting your password. If you don’t have an email please visit www.gmail.com or www.yahoo.com and set one up for free. Once you have your email address please call your child’s school site and let them know so they can add it to our system. You can use a cell phone, laptop, Chromebook, tablet or other computer to register. If you need any help our school offices will be open for support July 11-29 . Our summer office hours are: Elementary Campuses (Pandaland, G3, Mainland): Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Secondary Campuses (MIT, VISA): Mondays 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Tuesday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Your child must be present on the first day of school. We have many new students on a waiting list to enroll. The only exception to this would be if your child is ill on the first day at which time we would ask you to communicate with your child’s school site to report the absence. Be sure to look over the 2022-2023 school calendar which shows when we have school days (regular, shortened and minimum), and school holidays. The first week of classes will be shortened days. School attendance is critical not only to your child’s education but also for the quality of programs we are able to provide all students. Please partner with us to assure good attendance by using the calendar to plan vacations and other family events. By doing this you can help us provide your child and all of the children of the Vaughn community with the quality education they deserve. If you will not be returning to Vaughn please contact the site office that your child attends to notify them and to begin the formal disenrollment process including returning any Vaughn Chromebooks, hotspots, and materials. If you have any questions about the information in this letter please contact your school site office. We wish you a safe and restful summer and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back on August 1, 2022. Sincerely, Fidel Ramirez, Chief Executive Officer Vaughn Next Century Learning Center
Dear Vaughn Families, This is an important message for parents and guardians. The safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. We would like to take a moment to remind you of the importance of school safety on our campus as well as on route to and from school. We have been informed of some unfortunate situations where students who are walking are approached and questioned. In other cases, students have seen weapons brandished. We are actively engaging with our local law enforcement for support. We urge you to talk to your child about following safe practices, such as: Not walking alone or in isolated areas Going directly home following school dismissal. Be alert, look at your surroundings, and not be distracted by your cellphone. Whenever possible, walk with an adult or friend Do not walk with headphones on. It is unsafe when you cannot hear what is happening around you. Wear VISA school shirts Avoid wearing any hats with lettering. Avoid wearing any solid color pants, shoes, or shirts- blue, red, purple, yellow, green, brown, etc. If you observe any dangerous situation, report it immediately to an adult or call 911 Please know that all of our school personnel are here to help you and your student with any safety concerns and will work collaboratively to develop a safety strategy during their travel time. We thank you for your continued support and resiliency. Finally, we encourage our school community to follow our school message, if you see something, say something.
Dear Vaughn Family: The Vaughn Community is grief stricken by the news of the school shooting in Texas today. Our hearts go out to the students, families, teachers and staff at Robb Elementary School. The last two years of the pandemic have reaffirmed to us all how interconnected and interdependent we are. No technology can ever replace the day-to-day interactions that build our relationships with each other. This senseless tragedy emphasizes why it is so important that we look out for one another and work together to build a more peaceful and just world. This tragedy also affirms our commitment to keeping students and staff safe as the top priority. We are committed to having all our campuses be safe and secure. We recognize that this event may be frightening to some of our students. Know that we have counselors, school psychologists and other caring adults here on site who are available to assist students. How can you help your children at home? The American Psychological Association recommends the following: Talk to your children and listen. Acknowledge what happened and reassure them that people are working to keep them safe, including you as a parent, teachers and local police. Limit exposure to news coverage. Monitor how much exposure your children have to news reports. Maintain a “normal” routine for dinner, homework, chores, bedtime, etc. Make sure your children get appropriate sleep, exercise and nutrition in order to combat stress. Know the warning signs of anxiety that might suggest a child needs assistance. Yours Truly, Vaughn Next Century Learning Center
