“Good afternoon! This is Principal Carter. Thank you for your diligence and great effort as we continue to work through this uncertain situation. You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and I greatly miss seeing our students each day at school. Today Governor DeWine extended the school closure through May 1st.
This week, our Elementary students should be continuing to work on the packets and instructions that were given to them our last week of school. This Friday we will be asking students to turn in the work they have completed and pickup new work and instructions to begin next week.
At this point we have prepared plans for remote learning which will include the following: ALL students in grades 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade should have access to a device at home which can be used for digital learning and connections. If your child does not have a device at home to use, please fill out the Google form located on our Elementary webpage or contact me at 330-488-0392 to RSVP a chromebook. Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students do not need a chromebook to complete their remote learning.
Secondly, each homeroom teacher will be contacting each of their students weekly by video or phone means to check-in and answer questions. Parents, please check your email, Remind, or Class Dojo messages frequently to communicate with your child’s teacher and schedule these weekly check-ins. In addition, students should check their school emails daily.
Lastly, on this Friday, April 3rd we will be having a drive-through remote learning pick-up and drop-off by the car rider cones outside door 1. On Friday, if you reserved a chromebook, it will be available to pick-up after you sign a borrower’s agreement. Also at Friday’s drive through, the teacher will be available to collect the work that was already completed and hand out the new work and plans for remote learning as well as the 3rd nine week report cards. Each grade level has a one hour designated drive through time. Families with children in multiple grade levels may pick up and drop off work for all the children at one time if they wish. The drive through schedule for Friday, April 3rd is as follows: 5th grade homeroom teachers will be available from 11:00a.m. to 12:00p.m. 4th grade homeroom teachers will be available from 12:00p.m. to 1:00p.m. 3rd grade homeroom teachers will be available from 1:00p.m. to 2:00p.m. 2nd grade homeroom teachers will be available from 2:00p.m. to 3:00p.m. 1st grade homeroom teachers will be available from 3:00p.m. to 4:00p.m. and the Kindergarten homeroom teachers will be available from 4:00p.m. to 5:00p.m.
The information provided in this message will also be posted on our Elementary school webpage for reference. If you have any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you once again for your great efforts! Together we can continue to keep our children safe and learning. Lastly, please remember that school breakfast and lunch bags are available for pick up to all students every Monday from 11:00-11:45a.m. outside door 1 Take care!”
