Class Work and Absences

We know that many families plan travel around this time of year, so we would like to communicate a reminder regarding the expectations for class work during a planned absence.  For excused absences planned in advance, teachers will provide suggestions for continued practice of math and reading skills.  However, teachers are not able to replicate the learning engagements from the classroom. Completion of homework after absences is at the discretion of the student’s classroom teacher.

LA Host Families

We are looking for new host families for our 9 amazing LA’s for the spring semester (mid January to mid June). The LA would need their own bedroom, but often share bathrooms with the family. Hosting is a wonderful opportunity to learn about a new culture and hear more Spanish in your home! The ISLA community supports each host family with designated aunt and uncle families, and rideshare options are available as well. Please email islaLAprogram@gmail.com if you feel your family would be a good fit in hosting one of our Language Ambassadors!
