Alember La Shawn Love-French. Member July 24, 2020 Dear Victoria Magathan Elementary School Families. It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. As you may have already heard, we will begin the 2020 2021 school year in distance learning. As we prepare for the first day of school on Monday, August 10, I want to review with you a few important things and I also want to reassure you that the teachers and I are doing our best to offer a quality distance learning program that meets the educational and social-emotional needs of our students at Victoria Magathan Elementary School (VME). Unlike the remote learning that we offered students in March when schools in California suddenly closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, students will be required to participate daily, student work will be graded, and attendance will be taken Monday through Friday. All of us at Victoria Magathan Elementary School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be a great year. I look forward to working with you as a team to help your student at Victoria Magathan Elementary School meet their goals and have a successful school year. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you may have as the school year begins. The below information will give a little more information as to what will be taking place at Victoria Magathan Elementary School and throughout the Adelanto Elementary School District. Enrollment and Re-registration: Enrollment of new students and re-registration of current students will be entirely online through the Aeries Parent Portal. Re-registration must be completed for all students returning to the District because it replaces the paper packets we ask parents to fill out at the start of every school year. To get started visit https://www.aesd.net/Administration2/centralenrollment for more information. If you have questions and need technical assistance, please call the Enrollment Center at (760)246-8691 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you haven't already done so, please take a moment to create an account in the Aeries Parent Portal by visiting 1811.aesd.net and select the Parents tab, then Parent Resources, and finally Aeries Parent/Student Portal. This is where you can keep track of student attendance and academic progress. You will need an Aeries account to enroll and re-register your student(s), as well as to make changes to your student's demographic information throughout the year (ex: parent email address or home phone number) AESD strives to be the High Desert's premier learning establishment where dreams are awakened, academic achievement soars, and integrity leads the way to future success.
