WHAT TO DO FIRST!

Monday and Tuesday -
  • All students should work on the "GO PACK" paper/pencil lessons for 2 days. This includes students who are on quarantine.
  • Free meals are available for drive-by pick-up at CRI cafeteria door - 11am - 1pm.
  • Students WITHOUT access to technology - must pick up additional work this Tuesday between 2pm - 6pm. Parents turn in students' work and exchange it for more work in CRI Lobby on Mon., 11/30, 2pm - 6pm.


Wednesday -
  • Students WITH technology - have a Google Meeting with homeroom teachers & begin online work (with lots of help!); each day they will have 2 Google class meetings to help them. Links coming soon!
  • Students WITHOUT technology should have picked up additional paper assignments Tuesday; they work on assignments in all classes everyday and exchange completed work for more assignments on Mon. 11/30 at CRI

STUDENTS WHO NEED A "GO PACK":

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A GO PACK, BE SURE TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD'S GO PACK ON MONDAY @ CRI between 8am and 6pm, so your child will have their work to do.


Or you may print the assignments using the following links:


Go Packs contain work for your child to do on Monday & Tuesday (Nov. 16 & 17).

All students received these Go Packs at the first of the year, and they were sent home again with students last Friday. Keep the empty folders in a safe place to store future Go-Packs.

STUDENTS who are currently on quarantine:

  • Stop working in CANVAS on Monday and Tuesday and complete the Go Pack assignments for Monday and Tuesday instead. Then resume working in Canvas on Wednesday.
  • Teachers will be adjusting online module/lesson dates for this week to allow time for all students to complete Go Packs first.

WEDNESDAY - WE KICK OFF "ONLINE" DISTANCE LEARNING:

If your child has access to technology, they should join WEDNESDAY'S ONLINE GOOGLE CLASS MEETING with their FIRST BLOCK TEACHER. Your child's 1st block teacher will make sure kids & parents know how to login & complete work using CANVAS. We are here to help every step of the way!


Most days, students will have 2 Google Meeting times for Homework Help with one of their core teachers & a life app teacher:


  • 5th grade: 9:am and 12pm
  • 6th grade: 10am and 1pm

NOTE: There's a great CRI Canvas Help Request Link to request quick one-on-on assistance, as well as, How-To Videos, and great Tips located at bottom of this newsletter.
