We’re accepting questions until 5 pm today for the rescheduled Family Connection “Coping With Loss” webinar.

Along with CHKD, let’s discuss the term “loss” which encompasses more than just loss of a family member or friend; it can refer to hope, a job, changes from the pandemic, etc.

We’ll learn appropriate ways to manage and identify how that ‘loss’ makes us feel and what we can do to acknowledge this feeling.

So if our kids are still not home after 5 o'clock there is no one to call - how is this OK? So I have no idea where my kid is and won't know until he gets home to tell me? This happens way too much, even before 5pm, when his bus is suppose to be here before 4:30, the school has already turned their phones to automated message. How is this ok? Why can't the school send out a message alerting parents their child's bus will be late? I just got a notification that my son's bus has been substituted and when I look in the bus app that bus is no where even near our neighborhood let alone school zone. Do Better
Any updates on if there will be a Virtual option for next year ? I see registrations coming out for Virtual Virginia and don't want to miss sign up. Thank you!
Maybe you'll do the right thing now that others have done the hard work. #wearamask #stopcovid19
Hey… sooo… Year round school, okay?
VBCPS you should think long and hard before making any changes to the school calendar. The timing of this survey is perfectly VBCPS. During adjusted dismissal periods that were forced on parents without their input or consent, in a month with two federal holiday periods, and if not for a late start this year, teacher work days for end of semester, and smack dab in the middle of 2 sessions of weather-related asynchronous learning. Back to the topic at hand, the suggested changes make very little sense. To mention 80% of other VA school districts start before Labor Day, yet fail to mention those districts also end the week after Memorial Day is manipulative and less than forthright. Suggesting a start of 2 weeks early but finish on the same date, doesn’t ease stress on anyone in the system. Parents are stressed to find extra child care in the middle of the year or take their valuable and limited PTO to account for these days. Students are more stressed when their schedules are inconsistent. Teachers are stressed because their work year is expanded without extra pay. Please take back this survey and send it out again when there are better ideas.
Absolutely pathetic! Thank you 12 monthers for going in and sorry for all those parents that have to pay for daycare or miss work because the VA Beach school administration is so incompetent.
I appreciate VBCPS asking our opinions about the calendar next school year. It’s a survey in y’all’s email, so if you want to be heard, take a look. I personally liked option one, but two was tempting because the kids would have November first off. Anyway, I started by asking my kids. Two kids said go back 2 weeks early with longest breaks, one said go back after Labor Day, so Option one was the compromise. One week early (instead of two). Anyway, here’s your chance to be heard.
Why are you turning our school buildings into petri dishes in which Covid19 is given free rein to mutate? Why are you willing to risk the longterm stability of our communities in order to satiate the political desires of one party? These are questions you need to answer.
VBSchools - the website is down.
With Covid cases rising and all my vaccinated children getting Covid from school, please don’t lift the mask mandate. The rates are rising- not falling. I will have to consider pulling my child from kindergarten halfway through the year for his safety. He’s already gotten Covid once.
For 2 years you have hidden behind executive orders. “Your hands have been tied.” You will comply with this order and my kid will not be wearing a mask on the 24th. Go ahead and let everyone know they can opt out if they choose. Have a great day!
