Greetings Families,

The COVID-19 positivity rate within and beyond our community has increased rapidly, impacting students, families, and staff members.  As we continue to navigate this dramatic increase in positive COVID-19 cases, our goal as a JQES community is to be as flexible, responsive, and supportive as possible.  We respect that families are increasingly in positions where they must make difficult decisions about whether they feel comfortable sending their children to school.  The thinking behind these decisions is complex and impacted by quarantines, isolation status, close contacts, and a variety of personal and health related concerns.

Given the high volume of students who already need to be absent from school, we are sharing information to support students’ learning at home when they are not able to be in person due to COVID-19 related reasons.  Below are available at-home learning resources for early childhood (K-2nd) and upper elementary (3rd-5th) as well as information about accessing Chromebooks and remote learning supply kits.  Please reach out if you have any questions or need support as we navigate our current context together.

How to Access

BPS Early Childhood Department Virtual Tutoring

The BPS Early Childhood Department is offering a 3 hour virtual tutoring option for students during their time of quarantine/isolation.  These synchronous classrooms on Zoom follow the district’s curriculum calendar which is slightly different from our K0/K1-2nd grade classrooms.  

Check in with your child(ren)’s classroom teacher and they will provide the information needed for the school to enroll your child in the early childhood virtual tutoring during quarantine/isolation Once your child is registered, you will receive a confirmation email, virtual classroom assignment, and Zoom information from the BPS Early Childhood Department.

JQES Daily Relevant Classwork

Your child(ren)’s classroom teacher will also update Seesaw with daily relevant classwork that can be accessed by students digitally through the Seesaw platform on Clever. This daily relevant classwork enables students who are absent to continue to make progress that aligns with their classmates. Additionally, students may work with outside tutors to maintain pace with classroom instruction see information on Paper tutoring below.

Log into Clever and click on the Seesaw icon.

Paper Tutoring

Through Paper, students can speak to a tutor anytime and anywhere.

With a commitment to helping students learn, they’ll never give students answers, but rather interact with them in an encouraging tone to lead them forward.

大家好,

我们社区内外的 COVID-19 阳性率迅速上升,影响了学生、家庭和工作人员。 随着我们继续应对 COVID-19 阳性病例的急剧增加,我们作为 JQES 社区的目标是尽可能灵活、响应迅速和支持。我们尊重家庭越来越多的关于他们但需但是是否愿意送孩子上学做出艰难的决定的处境。这些决定背后的想法很复杂,并受到隔离、隔离状态、密切接触者以及各种个人和健康相关问题的影响。

鉴于已经有大量学生需要缺课,我们与大家分享信息来支持学生在因 COVID-19 相关原因而无法亲自到校时在家学习。以下是早期教育 (K-2年级) 和小学高年级 (3-5年级) 的可用在家学习资源,以及有关访问 Chromebook 和远程学习用品包的信息。如果有任何问题或在我们观察当下情况时需要支持请与我们联系。
