Good morning Hawks,

Here we go!  Your child’s teacher has distance learning up and running and on April 6th students should expect to check their Google Classrooms for lessons and assignments each day.  Although it may look differently class to class and school to school we will try to over-communicate with you so everyone feels connected to this new way of learning for the time being.  In the meantime, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher if you need support of any kind and it will be communicated to the school.  

Families who indicated a need to borrow a school chromebook, your child’s teacher has called you/attempted to get in touch about school pick up information.  A liability/replacement form has been sent to you on Schoolcash Online that must be filled out in exchange for borrowing the chromebook (hard copies will be available at the school should you need a paper copy). Please be sure to follow up with your child’s teacher so that your child(ren) have access to a device for Monday.

What can you expect next week?  

Teachers will share slides or documents that include video clips of teaching, tasks, stories read online, literacy and numeracy activities and/or assignments to be completed.  Your child should begin a new practice of logging into his/her Google Class every morning to see what has been posted by the teacher. Because many of us are working from home, it will be a challenge for all of us  to be online at the same time; however, encourage your child to post questions and comments as needed. Let your child(ren) know that teachers will continue to document and give feedback on assignments as they regularly would at school and record this for assessment purposes.
