Hubert Parent Newsletter - December
November 28, 2020
Thanksgiving Break is Almost Over!
Thank you for for making Hubert a safe learning environment not only for your child, but for all children learning in-person at Hubert. Hubert has been fortunate to not have had a single outbreak of COVID-19, and that is a testament to the dedication of our families and staff; adherence to social distancing and masking has been universal. Thank you again!
With that said, it has been a long break for the students! If your child has developed COVID-19 over the break (or currently experiences symptoms of COVID-19 or has been exposed to someone infected with COVID-19), please keep your child at home on Monday and fill out this form as soon as possible. After filling out that form, a contract tracer with the school will be in contact with you as soon as possible with information.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me directly at Brian.Dotson@sccpss.com.
Brian Dotson - Principal

REMINDERS: Information From The Prior Newsletter
Productive Struggle for Teens - How You Can Help
Productive struggle happens when students have a growth mindset (please click the image to the right). This occurs when the students are engaged in work that isn't too easy or too overwhelming. The work we do at Hubert aims to hit that "sweet spot."
Productive struggle is crucial for students to become independent learners. Rather than immediately jumping in to help, teachers will give room for students to problem-solve and struggle independently before offering assistance.
That may sound counter-intuitive, since many of us assume that helping students learn means protecting them from negative feelings of frustration. But for students to become independent learners, they must have practice persisting in the face of challenges.

In order to try out, a sports physical packet must be filled out completely by the child, the parent, and the child's physician. Please see below for a copy of the form.

How does my child login to Itslearning?
A student login link will be placed on the main SCCPSS website before Wednesday. Students will need to check the website on Wednesday morning in order to login. The district will be using Itslearning as the universal platform for students to login on.
Want to get some practice with the platform before Wednesday? Please see page 7 of the Parent Guide. The parent guide also has a lot of other useful information about remote learning, school lunch, the daily schedule, and other topics.
Please visit this link for Hubert's daily schedule.
Still have questions? Please give us a call at 912-395-5235.
