Nixon Elementary Weekly Update

September 14, 2020

School Resumes September 21

This is just a friendly reminder that school starts up again on September 21. For those learners coming back to Nixon in person, our day begins at 8:30 when learners enter the building. We will NOT have supervision for those who arrive before 8:30, so please do not drop off your children until then. All learners should be at school by 8:50. Anyone arrive after 8:50 will be marked tardy. All families of in person learners will be receiving a call from their child's teacher later this week. Please keep an eye out for communication and updates from the teachers. You will also be receiving a packet of information containing your child's teacher, a QR code to join SeeSaw, a card with information about Nixon's Virtual Open House and a link to our Electronic Handbook, a plaque to display in your car for when your child is picked up by car, a COVID quick sheet of reminders for easy reference.

For those learners who will be remote to start the year, you should be receiving a call or email from your child's remote teacher later this week. This teacher will be the point of contact for all questions you might have about starting school online and what to expect from your child's virtual face-to-face time with their teacher (roughly 3 hours per day) and the expectations for when your child works independently the other part of the day (1.5-3 hours per day). If you have any questions about school for your learner, please fee free to reach out and I will do my best to get you the answers.

For all my Bobcat families, please enjoy this last week of summer break. I look forward to seeing all of your children (either in person or virtually) this year.
