Dear IVEP Families,
 
I hope all of your are doing well during these difficult and unprecedented times.   

I wanted to reach out to all of you regarding the IVEP Lesson Program with some quick updates and next steps for the program. We have worked in conjunction with the school administration and our IVEP teachers to find ways to continue our lesson program during this closure. 
 
You should have already received a communication from your IVEP teacher outlining their plans, but I also wanted to let you know what options will be available to teachers, families and students for the next two weeks. 
 
1.  Teachers will have an option, but are not required, to do online lessons. 
 
Many teachers are using this option and have set up the technology with each family.  If there is a remote lesson, it will be counted toward the number of lessons taken during the Spring Semester.
 
2.  If a teacher is not teaching remotely, there will be a few options which are:
 
a.  Once we return to school, they will do make-up lessons for the lessons that were missed.
b.  Once we return to school they can add time on to existing lessons to make up the time lost during the closure. For instance, schedule a lesson for 45 minute instead of 30 minutes to start making up the time of the missed lesson.
c.  In the event that they cannot make up the lessons missed, the district will provide a refund for any lessons that were missed at the end of the year.
 
We also continue to monitor the situation closely and although this is our plan for now, as this is a rapidly changing situation we may need to revise our plans moving forward.
 
I’ll keep you updated with any changes but in the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Russell Wilson or myself at any time.
 
I hope you and your family are well and thank you for your continued support of our programs.
 
Sincerely,
Michael LaCava
