Happy New Year!

Happy 2021 Petrova! We enter 2021 hopeful for a wonderful new year full of fun, learning, and friends. We thank you for all of your support this year and encourage you to continue to be active participants in your child's learning by communicating with the teacher, letting us know how we can support you and your student, and taking an active role in both in person and remote instruction.


Here are some reminders as we begin the new year together.


Students will be playing outside as much as possible. Please send them with a warm jacket, snow pants, gloves, hat and warm boots. If you are in need of any items, please let us know.


We sent home slips for consent for COVID testing in case the county falls into a color zone designation that would mandate 20% testing for the school to remain in person. Please send those back as soon as possible.


If your child is not attending in person instruction or remote instruction, please call the office at 891-4221 to notify Mrs. VanWeelden of the absence and the reason. Please remember that students who are attending an appointment are not permitted to come to school late that day. They should participate in remote learning for that day.


We thank you for all of your support during this time, and please continue to communicate with us and your classroom teacher any concerns or needs for support.


Thank you!

Petrova Pen Pal Club

Petrova Elementary was pleased to have students participate in the Petrova Pen Pal virtual after school program. Mrs. Martin, along with the students, created cards and ornaments to deliver to Will Rogers and Mercy Care to spread some holiday cheer. Nice job, Petrova!

Suggestions of How to Sit During a Google Meet!

Farm to School Newsletter

Chromebook Success!


Just a reminder that devices from school are for instructional purposes only. They are to be used for assignments and Google Meets ONLY. Also, students should only be attending Google Meets with a staff member. Thank you.


Some common Chromebook issues can be easily fixed with the following suggestions:


· Log out of Chrome. There might be an excessive amount of tabs open.


· Restart your Chromebook via holding down the power button either on the side of the Chromebook (Lenovo) or on the top right of the keyboard (HP).


· Are there many devices connected to the WiFi at the same time in your house such as laptops, Chromebooks, phones, TV’s (Netflix,), X-Boxes, Play Stations etc? Can you try to disconnect some devices that aren’t being used?


  • Are you close to your WiFi router in your house? The room you are trying to do your meet in could be too far away.
  • Is the student using a virtual background or blur? If so, this will take more bandwidth.

· If not entirely necessary and the teacher allows it, the camera being off temporarily will take less bandwidth.


Please know there are many variables to this. The world in its entirety is online more for obvious reasons and the internet providers as well as Google are being pushed to the max. Thank you for helping with this matter. I will be looking at the network closely this weekend and restarting some major network components.


Thank you for your support! IT Department
