Hello Valley West Families,

Over the past week, our teachers and staff members have been working very hard to be able to implement new remote learning opportunities.  By now, all of you should have been contacted by your teachers with information about how you can begin to access the learning materials.  Teachers have created schedules, set up online accounts, and are finding many creative ways to interact with students.  

There have been many virtual meetings happening with classes, google classrooms have been set up and are becoming more and more interactive, clinicians have started regular sessions with students, and students have been reaching out to us for support.  Although this is all new for us, we feel that there has been a fantastic amount of growth already! 


We are so proud of all of your efforts and encourage you to keep moving forward. 

We continue to post videos on our YouTube channel to keep connections with all of the staff and hope you are enjoying everything we are doing to keep you engaged and entertained!  

Take care of yourselves and be well.

Please see:
