Important Distance Learning Reminders
- Our learning day operates from 9:00-1:50pm and mirrors our in person schedule. Students are to adhere to their daily schedule to the best extent possible.
- Students are expected to attend all Google Meets that are scheduled by their teacher and support staff. During Google Meets time, your child's teacher is providing live instruction as well as providing immediate feedback to students and checking for understanding. It is imperative that your child attend these meets on a regular basis.
- Attendance is taken daily and needs to be done by 1:50pm in their Google Classroom. If your child has not taken attendance by 1:50pm then your child will be marked absent.
- If your child can not participate in work on any school day, please call the main office at 203-929-4077 to notify us of your child's absence.
- Automated absence calls go out at 2:30pm daily. If you did not call your child out of school then you will receive a call. All absences are unexcused unless we receive a call or email about an absence.
- If you have any questions or concerns, please email your child's teacher.
Celebrating our Diversity
In this week's story, One World, One Day, we will read about the essential things that we all do daily no matter where in the world we live. We will also read about the different ways we do these same things. For this week's assignment, students will identify one connection they made from the book and one thing they learned from the book.
