D91 Remote Learning Survival Guide

2020-2021 School Year

Dear D91 Parents and Guardians,

Classes for all D91 students will begin on Monday, August 31st!!


On Thursday, August 27th, you will receive MANY pieces of information via email and ParentSquare:


  • A form letter with your child's username and password to access Google classroom, email, and other educational resources. It will also include the child's homeroom and group assignment.
  • An invitation for a student "Meet the Teacher" session on Friday, August 28th at 12:35pm (MG students) OR 1:20pm (KG students).
  • The daily learning schedule for remote learning next week.


We want to thank you for continuing to partner with us as we work through the start of this school year. Our team knows that our families are excited for information about the school year; we appreciate your patience with us while we finish preparing for the year and welcoming our teachers for training this week. The school community has done an amazing job supporting the children and each other. This survival guide has been created for you in order to support the best start of the year possible!


Please let us know if there is any information we should add. We are preparing to have students safely return to school in person on September 28th and eagerly await the date that our schools will be filled with students and staff as in years past.


Sincerely,

The D91 Administration
