Week 2...... Continuous Learning at Home!

Congratulations!!! WE DID IT! We have all survived the first week of our Continuous Learning AT HOME Learning. We appreciate everyone for being so patient and understanding as we have sent out all the information that was coming to us. We hope you have all been able to successfully log into all the different sites. We know, from our phone calls to you and your students, that you have been working on several items from the PC District Website Weekly Lesson Plans. It's also been interesting to hear about the other ways you are incorporating learning into your daily plans! Way to go!!!

Look for the next week of Lesson Plans to be posted on Monday on the District website and on our Newsletter.

Have a wonderful week. Please stay safe.

We love you all!


Keeping this section in for another week just to make sure if anyone has any questions.

1. Paper Packets: If you marked that you did not have internet access or limited or any problems and wanted paper packets, those packets will need to be picked up curbside from Ralph Downs on MONDAYS from 11:00-12:30. Mr. Brookings will be there to pass the packets out to parents as they come by. You should stay in you car and drive up to receive them. There will be packets for each grade level.

2. Internet Access: If you marked that you have internet access and devices for you student to work "Online", you will receive information by going to the PC website at: www.putnamcityschools.org/learninglessons. New lessons will be uploaded weekly on the Sunday prior to starting a new week.

3. Instructional Resources for Students and Families: This PC Webpage will help with additional learning resources such as videos and other sites students can practice skills on.

You can access this page from the regular Putnam City Schools website:

ClassLink is a single sign on method for students to get into apps we use at school, such as Reflex, IXL,Wonders, etc. Some people have had problems logging into ClassLink.

Here is the new, formal way, to enter into ClassLink: All logins are now set up to be like this:

Username: first initial of first name, first initial of middle name, full last name, 2-digit birth year. (Example: ksdurham74)

Password: first initial of first name and first initial of last name, then student ID.

(Example: kd123456)

*If you still cannot login using this method, just use the individual logins that we have sent to you for your student. Sometimes, the best laid plans just don't want to work. :)


Keep on the look out for information to come. Information will be sent to you in our Newsletter, on Remind, or via Email .


Mrs. Hensley is our wonderful YearBook master. She is in touch with the company and will receive delivery of the yearbooks sometimes in May. When that happens, she will arrange a "Drive-By Yearbook PickUp". So stay tuned for more information on that, at a later date.

If you have not ordered a yearbook, she encourages you to purchase them online at www.jostens.com.

We will not be taking any money for yearbooks personally. The price of the yearbook is $25.
