Distance- Learning Program

Based on recommendations by the Ventura County Office of Education in consultation with the County Public Health Officer, Linda Vista Adventist Elementary School will maintain a closed campus through the end of this school year.  We will continue to provide a quality distance-learning program, and we will be continuing to monitor the situation as we plan graduations and end-of-the-year celebrations for a later date.

 

In these challenging times, I am thankful for the opportunities to connect that technology provides.  Our school is not shut down; our campus has merely expanded, with each home and each room being an extension of our school home and family.  We are continuing to look for creative ways to connect and encourage each other, but I am looking forward to the day when we can see each other face to face.  This reminds me of 1 Corinthians 13:12,13, “For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.  And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”  In spite of the chaos and uncertainty unfolding around us, we know that Jesus is coming soon, and there is no uncertainty or fear in that.  So, may we all stay strong in faith, hope, and love.


We recognize that this crisis has changed the life situation for each of you.  Some of you are out of work and feeling the financial hardship.  Many are transitioning to working at home and are struggling to accomplish work while also managing children.  Regardless of your situation, we are here for you.  We appreciate your continued partnership with LVAES, and we will work our hardest to provide you the best value for your tuition dollar.


While we are operating in a distance-learning environment, we commit to

 

  • Guiding and personalizing your child’s education so that he/she can continue to be academically challenged during this time.

  • Delivering personalized lessons and activities that will scaffold and guide your child for 4-6 hours each day with minimal support from you so that you can focus on what you need to do.

  • Providing 1:1 support and guidance for your child from 8:15-3:15.  If your child has a question, we’ll be there beside them, virtually of course.

  • Using technology for effective and personalized teaching while intentionally limiting required screen time in the completion of assignments so your child does not become a cyber zombie.

  • Purposefully scaffolding your child in their faith because this is a time for faith building.

  • Challenging your child to maintain physical fitness because there are only so many family walks you can go on.

  • Engaging your child’s social needs because isolation is difficult.
