We Missed You!

Welcome back! We have missed our scholars and community. We look forward to another great year at Vessels! The staff have been diligently planning to make this year a smashing success despite disruptions due to COVID-19.

We are strong apart, but much better together! We look forward to working as a team to persevere for our kids. It is my firm belief that we will make it through the other side more resilient, empathetic, and of course, amazing!

An email was sent to all families yesterday detailing beginning of the year procedures along with materials pick-up times and student rosters. Please make sure to read through the email and let me know if you have any questions by emailing me at mholman@cypsd.org. Please also have Zoom ready on your device and download Seesaw to ensure a smooth start to the school year.

We look forward to "seeing" you this Wednesday, August 26 bright and early! Please look for an email from your child's teacher on Tuesday, August 25 by 4:00 p.m. for specific schedules and first day login instructions.

We can do this Bulldogs!
CSD Reopening Plan

Please read the CSD reopening plan here.
FYI

  • If you chose Distance Learning as your option, your child may be taught by another highly qualified teacher in the Cypress School District as a result of limitations on classroom sizes. Do not worry! Your scholar is STILL a Vessels Bulldog and will not lose their roster spot at Vessels.
  • When we begin in-class instruction, start and end times will vary a bit due to staggered entrance and exit times. Please be on the lookout for the in-person bell schedule as we get closer to in-person instruction.
Student Materials pick-up at Vessels: August 25 - September 1

Click the materials pick-up tab to view the day and time your family is scheduled to pick-up materials needed for Distance Learning. It will be a drive-through pick-up with lots of surprises planned to welcome you to Vessels this year. Simply follow the signs, tell us if you student is a Distance Learner, Hybrid, or a Regular Start Bulldog, we will hand you the materials, and you can drive away. It's as easy as that. What's best is you do not have to get out of your car!
