During this unprecedented time, we are committed to supporting your student’s learning. We know the importance of clear communication as well as consistency and routine. You can expect a School Messenger communication from me every Sunday evening that will provide important information about our student learning goals.
Beginning this week, starting tomorrow, Monday, March 30, teachers will communicate learning activities with you. This communication will provide a routine for your student. You can count on consistent communication from me and your teachers.
For our school, this will look like:
Monday – Language Arts
Tuesday – Electives
Wednesday – Math
Thursday – Electives
Friday – Science
All staff will communicate out by email or Teams and post to their classroom website by 11:00 each day.
Please don’t hesitate to email me or your student’s teacher if you have any questions. We miss seeing our students each day and look forward to connecting with you each week by phone calls and email. Also keep checking our school and classroom websites for updated information.
Frequently Asked Student Questions
Will my work be graded?
· All work previously assigned and due by March 13 may be graded. This means your teacher might ask you to redo a learning activity/assessment or you can finish missing work that was not originally turned in. This work might then be graded.
· New work assigned after March 13 will not be graded. However, there may be learning activities where your teacher will provide you feedback to help you learn and grow.
· We anticipate you might ask, “Why should I do the work if it won’t be graded?” We know you will benefit greatly from this continued practice and learning opportunities. We care about you and want you to continue engaging with the important skills and concepts you’ve learned. Keeping your school routines going is essential during this time and is critical as you look forward to your continued learning.
Do I have to do the learning activities my teachers communicate and assign to me? When is it due?
· We would like all students to do their best on the work teachers assign, and to do their best to complete it. The work teachers assign will support what students have already learned and will set students up to be more successful in the future.
· Your teacher will provide due dates, but our new weekly schedule means your teacher will only send you a week’s worth of learning activities once a week. Feel free to turn it in if you are able, but if you are not, it will not be counted against you.
How will my teachers communicate with us?
· Your teachers will communicate with you or your family based on the schedule from your Principal.
What else should we know?
· It’s harder for students to do work from home without the support of their teacher. Keep in mind that these learning activities are to reinforce what students have been working on throughout the year; they also give your teachers the chance to monitor your learning and work by giving feedback.
· As we learn through this process, we might adjust things to better support you. We’ll be sure to communicate those changes.
Will special education students be receiving special education services?
· Case managers will communicate with families of students in their caseload, via email or over the phone, about what special education support will include during this time.
