Given the current circumstances regarding health and wellness at our school, it is necessary to enforce some social distancing for the general well-being of our community. As I’m sure you’re aware, this is a new process for all of us. Some of the measures we are taking to support distance learning for our students have not been tried in practice before. We may have a period of adjustment that proves challenging. I hope that we can work in partnership to make this experience as smooth as possible for you and your child, so they can continue feeding their curiosity and still learning new things each day.
To that end, at the beginning of each week I will be in contact with you regarding a general schedule for your child for that week. The schedule will include all assignments in all subjects that will be covered that week. The schedule will also include any times that I will be online teaching lessons in Google Hangouts/Meet, and the times that I will be available each day for questions and support.
(Information regarding logging in deleted from this online publication of original email. See Miss Pray’s email if needed.)
It is a good idea for parents to be with their students the first couple classes until they get the hang of it on their own.
Remember: I will be available on school days to assist you with assisting your child. The goal is to keep your child learning as much as possible.
Again, please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have going forward.You can reach me through text, call, Class Dojo, or email. I will be in contact with you both to work with your child, and to continually assign work for your child. Any and all school updates will come to you from the Head of School.
Thank you, and let’s all be sure to be patient and gracious with one another during this challenging time!
