  • A Letter From Ms. Dabney

    A Letter from Ms. Dabney and a Video from Wags!

    March 27, 2020

    Dear Veterans Park Families

    Thank you to all of the families who were able to come through our “VPE Carline” and pick up materials and Chromebooks for your students on Monday.  If you were unable to come through the line our teachers and staff delivered all materials and resources to families and as of 2:00 on Tuesday all materials were in the hands of our students!  Thank you for being flexible and understanding as we work through these new learning adjustments.

    If you did not check out a Chromebook for your student and you determine that you need one starting April 6th please contact your child’s teacher and we will work with you to get one to you.  Also, if you are having a login issue we ask that you contact your student’s teacher for assistance. Fayette County also is offering a technology help line to support students and families while at home and they can be reached at 859.381.4410 and are available Monday-Friday from 8am to 5pm.  Please note they will not be available during Spring Break.

    Veterans Park has added a NTI (Non-Traditional Instruction) tab to our website and this will house resources for families and students to help navigate some of the online learning.  There will be teacher contact information/office hours and many other resources for you. We will continue to update these along with teacher emails to keep you up to speed as to what is going on.  Please remember that official NTI days will begin on Monday, April 6th as this next week is our scheduled Spring Break.

    We know that our students are reading at home and a lot more than those 20 minutes a day! This means students are finishing books quickly and many have requested to be able to take Reading Counts tests while at home.  Therefore, we have posted the Reading Counts link on the VPE website under the student tab and pushed it out to students’ Clever login when they are signed into their Chromebooks. The only thing we ask is that you allow students to independently take these tests.  Ms. Ault will continue to give RC updates to teachers to keep the competition going amongst the classrooms and students! Keep up the reading!

    Each Friday, we will continue to update the Flash and send it out with as many updates as we have available to you.  Please look for my letter to be attached weekly and always if you have questions or concerns please email me. 

    May everyone stay healthy!

    CHARTER TO OFFER FREE ACCESS TO SPECTRUM BROADBAND & WI-FI FOR 60-DAYS FOR NEW K-12 AND COLLEGE STUDENT HOUSEHOLDS AND MORE

    Stamford, CT. – March 13, 2020In the coming weeks, many Americans will be affected either directly or indirectly by COVID-19 and Charter is focused on serving and supporting our 29 million customers. Americans rely on high speed broadband in nearly every aspect of their lives and Charter is committed to ensuring our customers maintain reliable access to the online resources and information they want and need. To ease the strain in this challenging time, beginning Monday, March 16, Charter commits to the following for 60 days:

      • Charter will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription at any service level up to 100 Mbps. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.
      • Charter will partner with school districts to ensure local communities are aware of these tools to help students learn remotely.
      • For eligible low-income households without school-aged children, Charter continues to offer Spectrum Internet Assist, a low-cost broadband program delivering speeds of 30 Mbps
      • Charter will open its Wi-Fi hotspots across our footprint for public use
      • Spectrum does not have data caps or hidden fees.

     

    As the country works collaboratively to contain this pandemic, broadband internet access will be increasingly essential to ensuring that people across the country are able to learn and work remotely, that businesses can continue to serve customers, and that Americans stay connected and engaged with family and friends. 

    Charter’s advanced communications network will ensure our more than 29 million customers – including government offices, first responders, health care facilities, and businesses – across 41 states maintain the connectivity they rely on. The network is built to sustain maximum capacity during peak usage which is typically in the evenings, so a surge during the day would be well within the network’s capabilities to manage. Charter will continue to closely monitor this dynamic situation, and is well-prepared to continue delivering reliable connectivity. Charter has extensive business and workforce continuity plans in place that will be adjusted as needed to best serve all our customers and employees.
