Divine Providence School
January 1, 2021 Home and School Connection
Virtual School - Starting January 4 - January 15
The teachers and staff have been working hard to prepare for the upcoming weeks of remote learning! As our two weeks of remote learning approach; please read through these suggestions and guidelines to aid your child in making a smooth transition.
-Check to make sure that you have all necessary codes/logins before going home for Christmas break on Friday.
-Verify that your student can access Seesaw (K-4) or Google Classroom (5-8) on a device from your home. Devices borrowed from Divine Providence School will be distributed on Friday, December 18th.
-Designate a specific location in your home where your student will "attend school" each day. This could be a desk, the kitchen table, a card table but the same spot each day is best practice.
Guidelines for zoom calls:
-Be on time for zoom calls. Teachers may not be able to admit students to zoom if they are late. Logging on a couple of minutes early is strongly advised.
-Student should remain seated upright while in zoom calls. Absolutely no student should be "Zooming" from their bed.
-No eating during zoom calls.
-Camera must remain on with the student visible during zoom calls.
Thanks for your help in getting your child prepared for remote learning. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
