Important message from your PTO




Dear LCM Community,


The PTO knows you are nervous and concerned about the reopening of our school, and we are equally nervous and concerned about what reopening would look like for LCM. We are working right now to get more information about some of the specific details of what the in-person learning would look like and what the distance learning would look like. Our hope is to share it with you so you can be informed BEFORE answering the survey sent out by Dr. Garcia. (In-person 5-days a week and distance learning are the 2 options the district is proposing for the elementary school level.) Please post any specific questions you have in the comments below. We will do our best to get as many of these questions answered for you. No promises, but we are working on this for all of us.



We hope to be able to share what we have learned with you by tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon. Please also mark your calendars for Tuesday, July 21st, at 6:30 if you are interested in attending the SMUSD Board Meeting virtually. We will be posting the information about the board meeting on the home page of the PTO website as we get closer to Tuesday.



Thank you!


SMUSD Board Meeting



The next SMUSD Board Meeting will be on Tuesday, July 21st at 6:30 p.m. Additional details can be found on the district website. We will post the link to join the virtual board meeting here as soon as the link is available.



 LCM families please check your emails for a message from the district about parentvue

La Costa Meadows Elementary Parents! Please check your emails and your junk and spam email folders for an email from Synergy ParentVUE or SMUSD.org concerning Synergy ParentVUE. This is not SPAM. ParentVue is a parent portal that will allow you access to view your child's progress summary reports and some additional information. Please follow the directions on the email, and I recommend you then download the ParentVUE app on your phone.
Please note this email went to only parents who don't currently have a middle school or high school child at an SMUSD school. (Parents with older children in the district already have access to ParntVue, so no email was sent to you.)
(If you checked your email, your spam, and junk folders and still cannot find the email, please reach out to Mrs. Beddard to let her know. But please check all your junk and spam folders first. Thank you.)
The email, as seen below, does state that the State of California is no longer mailing paper report cards. However, LCM students will still be getting the paper report card at the end of this year. Please refer to Mandy's email from Sunday about dropping off Chromebooks and picking up report cards and yearbooks.
San Marcos Unified School District will implement ParentVUE, a component of our Student Information System beginning in the 2020-2021 School Year. This implementation supports our District Focus Area of Student Achievement; Ensure ongoing meaningful and multiple opportunities for parent engagement and community involvement to promote student success. ParentVUE will provide families a single location to access your children's information that will include: Class information at the beginning of the year, Report Cards, and additional modules over time. Additionally, the State of California is no longer mailing paper reports for State Assessment Results to parents (CAASPP and ELPAC Results). ParentVUE will provide this access to parents.

Thank you to all the applicants we had this year. The PTO Executive Board met on Thursday to review all applications with personal information withheld. It was a very difficult decision as we were impressed with all of the applicants! All our applicants demonstrated a commitment to academics and have worked hard to make an impact within our community. We are pleased to announce, the winner of the La Costa Meadows Elementary Alumni Scholarship this year is Gavin Cherveny! Congratulations, Gavin!




We are proud to have all the applicants as La Costa Meadows alumni and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors!
