May 2, 2020

Hello families!

With the announcement of school closures for the remainder of the year, we have been working diligently to build LIVE digital classrooms to continue our student’s learning. We are happy to announce that we will officially begin our *NEW* Distance Learning Initiative on Monday, May 4, 2020! Our Weekly Activity Calendar will be enhanced with LIVE sessions hosted by all teachers.

Pre-K - 2nd grade students will join a Google Classroom specific to their teacher. 3rd-5th grade students will join the classrooms of all of their teachers. You will access all meetings, assignments and announcements in the Google Classroom. If you have not received your Google Classroom code, please see the chart at the bottom of this page. Please join ONLY the classrooms that you belong to.

On Mondays, students will view a video from their teachers outlining the activities for the week. Pre-K - 2nd grade students will have live lessons with their teachers on Tuesday and Thursday. 3rd-5th grade students will have live lessons with their teachers on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. They will have the option to attend a live session with their teacher at two different times. If the student cannot make either session, a recording of the session will be provided.

Teachers will also have posted office hours where they can receive live help outside of their lessons. Evening office hours will also be provided to maximize opportunities for all students to access teachers.

Although we are out of our physical school building, students will still have the opportunity to attend special ancillary classes daily. STEM, P.E., Art and Library will all continue being provided.

We have successfully distributed over 200 devices to students in 2nd-5th grade so far. We are awaiting the arrival of more devices to expand distribution to Pre-K - 1st grade students and will update families when those are available.

We are very excited to be “face to face” with our students again! With this being as new and unprecedented as it is, we do anticipate that there may be some technical difficulties. We have a technology team that will assist with these issues as they arise and we thank you so much for your patience while we do so.

We are so excited to continue our learning and make the best of the time we have remaining in the school year! Please reach out if you have any questions about Distance Education going forward. All updates will be posted to our Facebook page and school website.

“See” you soon!
