    Virtual Field Day Info

This is a fun event that can be done right at home, with very little preparation, and you can pick the day that works best for you. Please have a look at the Virtual Field Day folder on the BF Day homepage for details! All files are under 1 Virtual Field Day Guidelines in on the Home Learning Page
  • Summer of Learning

  • Looking for an opportunity to support your child's success next school year? We're here to help — Seattle Public Schools is expanding our successful summer learning program!
  • While Seattle Public Schools continues to prioritize students furthest away from educational justice, the 2020 summer learning program is open to all students. Enrolling in the summer learning will help your child sharpen their academic skills for next school year and beyond. Even though we can't run our traditional, in-person classrooms this summer, we encourage all students to enroll in these online programs.
  •  
  • Seattle Public Schools educators have been chosen and trained to provide the most effective instructional strategies for your child's success. We have hand selected educators from our great staff, who are ready and excited to support your child in sharpening their academic skills.
  •  
  • This summer's learning programs will include social-emotional supports, enhanced tutoring for students who need an extra boost, and will be providing wraparound care at select school sites. If your child's teacher recommends them for enhanced supports, you will be contacted directly by the school.
  •  
  • Registration is open and closes on June 12. The program runs from July 6 through August 7. All students must register to be considered for the program.
  •  
  • Communication for students and families during the summer program: Email will be the primary mode of communication for the Summer of Learning. On May 26, Seattle Public Schools launched email accounts for all students. When you register your student for summer learning programs, you are welcome to use the new student email. Student email address will be their SPS Student Username — what students use to login to Schoology, Clever, etc. (ex: 1jrsmith@seattleschools.org) Read more about student email and meeting tools.
  • Summer Learning Highlights

  • Virtual Summer Learning is happening. If you are interested in this opportunity, the link is live on the SPS website. This is self-paced and students will have access to a teacher. It is Schoology based: a weekly learning packet and one videotaped lesson each day (five social emotional, 10 math, and 10 Literacy) will be uploaded to the student’s Schoology page. It runs 7/6-8/7
  • In addition, these other programs and services will be operating:

  • • Hardcopy, supplemental K-5 learning packets, student meals, and book distribution at the current 26 student meal sites.
  • • Enhanced basic need supports (e.g. counselors) will be provided at select school sites.
  • • Online summer course options for secondary students through Apex Learning to help them prepare and build confidence ahead of the 2020-21 school year. Learn more about Apex Learning.
  • • High school credit recovery for any SPS high school student that needs to recover credit from the previous year or who received an "incomplete" due to the COVID-19 health crisis. Students will have the opportunity to recover up to 1.0 credits this summer.
  • • New Bridge programs for 5th and 8th grade students. This is a self-paced program and will help students develop the skills and mind-sets needed for a strong transition to middle school and high school.
  • • 1:1 teaching and conferring sessions for students requiring more intensive supports; teacher recommendation required.
  • • A flexible schedule that meets your family needs including 25, K-8 on-demand learning videos for math, reading, and social-emotional learning. Lessons will focus on the key content, concepts, and skills students need to start strong in school year 2020-21. Each cohort of students will have an assigned teacher.
  • • On-demand virtual field trips hosted by community partners including the Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle Aquarium, and others.

  • Pick-up and drop-off of student items

  • BF Day will be open for parents to pick up and drop off items Tuesday to Friday, June 9 th through the 12th. Items will be bagged up by teachers and placed in the 2nd floor hallway in designated areas. The lost and found will also be available for you to look through. Each teacher will have a box clearly labeled for you to drop off classroom books, library books, etc., as well.
  • Physical distancing and preventative health measures will be in effect during this process. We require that you enter wearing your mask, and that one parent or their adult designee enter the building at the north door. Maps will be available to show you the location of where your child’s classroom has placed their items on the 2nd floor. To avoid as much cross traffic as possible, we will ask that you exit the building using either the center doors or the east side door by the library entrance.
  • The building will be open daily for pick-up Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 – 2:30. To minimize the number entering the building at any one time, please adhere to this schedule as best as you can. For any extenuating circumstances, please feel free to contact me at scjaskot@seattleschools.org to set up an appointment. Classroom access will not be possible during this time. We appreciate your understanding in the reasons for this limited access, especially since we are an operational daycare site.
