Amigos Por Vida Charter School

Good morning, parents,

We would like to express our gratitude for your unwavering support throughout the 2023-2024 school year on behalf of all APV-FFL staff members. As we near the end of the year, we kindly request that you take a few moments to complete the “End of the Year Parents Survey.”

Your input is incredibly valuable to us as we are committed to delivering high-quality education and empowering our students to become lifelong learners who achieve both academic and personal success. The survey will remain open until Friday, June 7, 2024.

We encourage you to spare a moment to assist us in finishing the year successfully.

Respectfully,

Mr. Delgado

Parents
Thank you for your comments, I understand your inquiries and concerns; however, we must complete the required instructional minutes for the 2023-2024 school year as mandated by The Texas Education Agency -TEA. Administrators decided that adding an hour a day for next week was the less disruptive solution to not interfere with other pressing commitments including promotion ceremonies for three grade levels involving half of the school district.
We can only speak for the APV-FFL school district’s desire to maintain compliance with the state. We respectfully refrain from comparing us to other school districts.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
F. Delgado

Good afternoon, parents:

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, passed on March 11, 2021, allocated additional ESSER funding, known as the ESSER III fund, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to support student learning recovery.

To comply with the ESSER III grant guidelines, Amigos Por Vida – Friends For Life Charter Schools District is gathering input from stakeholders to develop and oversee a plan addressing the needs of students and staff.

We are requesting that you take two minutes to answer the End of the Year ESSER Survey.

Your feedback in these areas is crucial to our planning and implementation efforts as we work towards next year.

Thank you for taking the time to complete our short survey.

Good afternoon, parents.

We thank you for your understanding and support during last week’s severe storm. We are grateful that all our students, families, and employees are safe, and that our school facilities have not suffered major damages.
However, due to the storm and the resulting power outage, we need to make up 180 minutes of instruction time as required by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). To meet this requirement, we are extending our school hours next week. The schedule for Tuesday, May 28, Wednesday 29, and Thursday 30, 2024, will be from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.(7:15 for breakfast)
We understand that this may cause inconvenience, and to make the extended hours more manageable for our students. We want to assure you that the safety and well-being of your family are our top priorities, and we appreciate your understanding and support during this time.
We are grateful for your continued support, and we are confident that together we can make the necessary adjustments to ensure a successful completion of the school year.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
With much gratitude,
Mr. Freddy Delgad

Good morning, parents.

I hope this information is useful and answers some of the inquiries received.

Houston Volunteer Lawyers Program

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A LAWYER AND CANNOT AFFORD ONE

You may be able to qualify for an attorney who will take your case at a reduced rate through the Houston Lawyers Referral Service (“HLRS”). For more information on this program, call 713/237-9429. If you need subsidized legal assistance, you should try HLRS first- this is your best chance of finding help quickly.

If you are unemployed, or otherwise do not qualify for a reduced rate attorney, you may seek assistance from a volunteer attorney who will provide free legal help as a public service. To qualify for free legal assistance, you must fall within strict verifiable income guidelines.

These services will try to find an attorney willing to take your case for free. These services are available whether you are a debtor or a creditor.
To find out if you qualify for free legal assistance, call:

Within the Greater Houston area:

Houston Volunteer Lawyers Program (“HVLP”)
712 Main Street, 27th Floor
Houston, TX 77002
713/228-0732

OR

Outside of Houston:
Lone Star Legal Aid (“LSLA”)
1415 Fannin
Houston, TX 77002
713/652-0077

Please reference the “Bankruptcy clinic” when you call. Walk-in service is not available.
You must submit proof of your eligibility and you will be required to cooperate fully with the service organization and with your assigned attorney.

THIS IS A VOLUNTEER PROGRAM TO ASSIST PEOPLE WHO TRULY CANNOT AFFORD TO HIRE A LAWYER. IT IS UP TO YOU:

TO CONTACT THE HVLP OR LSLA AND PROVIDE THE NECESSARY INFORMATION, and

TO COOPERATE WITH THE VOLUNTEER ATTORNEYS IN THE HANDLING OF THIS MATTER.

If you wait too long to ask for this help, it may be too late for anyone to help you. If you are assigned a volunteer attorney, you must cooperate quickly and fully with your assigned attorney. If you do not do so, they have the right to refuse to help you and they have the right to quit at any time (if the Court allows them to).

These lawyers are willing to help you if you need their help. But you can lose this benefit if you do not do your part! Please understand this is a program made available using volunteers.

The program cannot guarantee you an attorney even if you qualify, though effort will be made to assist you with information that may help.
