Virtual Return Schedules

Our leadership team has worked to develop a Tuesday-Friday schedule of instructional windows, lunch times, morning meeting and closing circle times for each grade level to provide families more information as we prepare to begin the school year in a virtual learning environment. Our teachers return to Creeds the first week of September and will share even more specific scheduling details prior to the first day of school so you will know when your student’s lessons will occur within the instructional windows.

During the times marked "Instructional Window," students will be participate in synchronous (live) whole group instruction, off screen independent work, and small group synchronous (live) instruction. Again, these are windows of instructional time that will include off-screen activities, as well as, possible additional down time.

Virginia Beach City Public Schools is very cognizant of screen time, and our teachers will provide a balance of digital and non-digital learning experiences during instructional windows. We will be thoughtful in our planning and provide time for physical activity and recess breaks as well. Each day will begin and end with a synchronous class meeting (morning meetings and closing circles) which will focus on social emotional learning, team building and reviewing information students may need. In addition, an asynchronous morning message will be posted by the teacher to provide an overview of the day to students and families.

As a reminder, your child's teacher will provide further details about their individual class schedule as we get closer to the start of the school year.
