Roy B. Kelley
Letter from Principal Walton
Dear RBK Families,
Wow! It is hard to believe it is October already! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support and hard work that you have provided our students and teachers at Roy B. Kelley. This is definitely an unprecedented year and we are ALL in this together! I am confident that we will persevere through all these new challenges we are facing. Please know that I am here for you and your child. There are a tremendous amount of new regulations and standards that we are held to. I will do my best to accommodate you and your family. Let’s work together and communicate face to face. Our focus at RBK is for your child to grow and experience educational success.
Here are a few key points about how to be a successful learner in the Remote and Hybrid Model:
Attend on time in person and remotely.
Complete all your assignments in person and remotely.
View all videos shared in Google Classroom.
New learning and material is shared DAILY.
Wednesday is a day of learning.
Remote families MUST pick up school work on Wednesday and drop off completed school work 11:00-9:00.
Mrs. O’Sheehan and Mrs. Lutz are here for tech support. Many families and caregivers have made an appointment and met with them for assistance. Make an appointment if you need assistance with technology.
If you need internet service please contact me.
Your child is being graded on their remote assignments and classwork.
All children will struggle while learning. It should be a challenge.
Allow your child to be independent as possible.
Please make sure your child is learning at home and in a quiet environment.
Respect others in the Google Meet. They can hear and see others in your household.
STAY CONNECTED!!! Watch the Google Classroom for updates and information.
Virtual Halloween Parade
We will conduct a virtual Halloween parade for 2020-2021. This year we will collect photos. Please send your photos electronically to your child’s teacher by Friday, October 23, 2020. Please take a photo of your child in their costume and email it to the teacher. If your child’s costume has a mask or face covering please take two photos so we can decipher who the child is. Due to the state of affairs and the various learning models this will allow all students to participate if they are willing. The PTA has generously donated goodie bags for each student since we are unable to host the annual Fall festival. The blue cohort will receive their goodie bags on Tuesday, October 27. The remote students will pick up their goodie bags on Wednesday, October 28. The gold cohort will receive their goodie bags on Friday, October 30. As always, if you have any questions please contact me.
Please keep your child at home if they are exhibiting the following symptoms. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT WE ALL FOLLOW these guidelines!!
Fever (100 degrees or higher) or chills
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Please call your medical provider and make an appointment for your child to be seen for an evaluation. Wash your hands frequently, Wear your masks and stay home if you are feeling ill. Thank you for helping keep all of our families happy and healthy!
