FLVS Corkboard: Thanksgiving Edition
And just like that, fall is nearly complete and the winter holidays are upon us! We know these months are bustling with activities both at school and at home, so we are combining your November and December highlights. Here are some of the activities happening at FLVS!
FLVS In-Service Training
FLVS teachers and staff will be attending In-Service Training Days in Orlando from Nov. 29 – Dec. 1.
Students are encouraged to continue in their studies during this time, but please understand there may be a slight delay in grading or returned calls as well as other scheduling adjustments.
Florida requires each school district to provide staff with a professional development plan of in-service hours to meet continuing education requirements. This helps our teachers and staff fulfill a portion of those hours and gain new knowledge and skills to better serve our students!
Thanksgiving Holiday Hours
All FLVS teachers and staff have off Nov. 22-24 in observance of Thanksgiving. The FLVS Customer Care Center will be closed Nov. 23-26.
FLVS Full Time students and staff will be off for the week of Thanksgiving, Nov. 20-24.
We hope you enjoy some time with family and friends this week!
UPDATE: Improvements Coming in Educator
FLVS is making your learning experience even better! To help accomplish this, we will be performing upgrades to our Educator system
