Hello Maybury Parents & Scholars,


As we have transitioned to a 100% virtual learning environment, our school building will remain closed with the exception of Monday's from 10:00-1:00 pm where breakfast and lunch pickup for the week is available! You are welcome to contact us via phone (614-626-2250) or by email. Our office hours will be Monday-Friday 9:00-2:00 pm!


5/6 scholars have Math and Science discussion questions, exit tickets and quizzes assigned each day. The links have been posted on Kickboard as well as class dojo and also emailed to each scholar's A+ email account. ELA/Social Studies assignments have also been assigned for today and tomorrow as Mr. Bailey will be out until Wednesday. My zoom room info was also included in the email in case your scholar needs assistance accessing the various platforms or has questions on what/how to complete the assignments.

All teachers are utilizing their Blackboard/Zoom classrooms and following our original virtual schedule. If your scholar cannot attend the live lessons, please ensure you are communicating with his/her teacher and making alternate arrangements to view the lessons and submit the required work. The virtual schedule along with links to Blackboard and Zoom are below!


If you haven't done so yet, please get you and your scholar connected to Kickboard so you can stay in the know as to classroom happenings and their behavior and classroom contributions!

Technology Tips and Help Desk


Device Care & Tips

Many of our scholars have received devices for virtual learning.

Below are a few tips to prevent the devices from low performance, damage, or accidental lost.

Ø Ensure the case remains on the IPad or Chromebook.

Ø Ensure food and drink are not around the device.

Ø Ensure scholars are stationary when using the device.

Ø Monitor data usage on the hotspot.

Ø When lessons have concluded for the day, ensure the scholar places the device in the same location for the next day.

Ø Ensure that your scholar's device is plugged in at the end of the day in order to be fully charged for the next school day.

If you have any questions regarding your scholar’s device, please contact: Harold Reed at hereed@aplusarts.com or 614-725-1305 ext.1001.

Your scholar's interims are available online (link to directions included below).

Kickboard

More information on the Kickboard platform is attached below. Please check it out and get your scholar signed up ASAP! We are transitioning from Class Dojo and soon, all the information and updates will only be sent to Kickboard instead of both Kickboard and Dojo. We want you in the KNOW, so please sign up and gain access to your scholar's account. Additionally, be on the lookout for their weekly scholar dollar behavior report which will be available every Friday!
