Distance Learning Announcements and Updates, 2/5/21

A Message from Principal Ghereben

Greetings Proctor Families,

Thank you again for finishing strong with us during the month of January. I know that we are all feeling a bit worn down, and that the past few months have been difficult for everyone. Teachers, staff, students, and families have all been working so hard while in Distance Learning, and we hope we will all be back together soon.

Once Alameda County has been in the Red Tier for two weeks, our elementary school students will be able to attend in person (hybrid model), starting with transitional kindergarten and kindergarten, followed by first and second grade, and then third through fifth grade while following state and county guidelines.

Proctor's Site Safety plan is also posted on our website, along with information, training and resources to families to support our preparation for reopening. We are excited about having our students back on campus, following all restrictions and safety protocols.

Please watch for additional communication that will be sent out about our preparation for returning to in-person instruction. Videos Resources will be linked to communication in the coming weeks to train and prepare families in coming back to campus. Please take some time to view our video about Arrival and Dismissal Locations located on our website and linked below. Teachers will be reaching out this coming week to survey their families if they will be a "Driving Family" or a "Walking Family" when picking up their student. This is important information that will help us utilize the new PikMyKid App. More information and training will be sent out next week.

Thank you again for all you do, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!

Assessment Schedule Changes Coming!

Our assessment schedule for the end of Trimester 1 was so successful, we will be implementing a similar model for the end of Trimester 2 assessments.

  • During the week of February 16 - 19 (Feb. 15 is a holiday), TK-K students in the Main Option will be assessed.
  • During the week of February 22 - 26, First - Fifth grade students in the Main Option and all CVVPE students will be assessed.

Students will begin each day, Monday through Friday, with an 8:00am live full class check-in, where they’ll have a social-emotional/anti-bias learning lesson and receive directions for the day. They will be given asynchronous work to complete over these days and will still be expected to attend their specialists’ sessions (Science, PE, RTI, if applicable). Classroom teachers will be using the morning synchronous time to administer virtual assessments. Your child will be assigned a time to meet with their teacher to complete these individual and/or small group tasks.

(Teachers will be sending your child’s appointment time for assessment to you very soon.)

Thank you for your continued partnership. We appreciate all of the support you are providing your child. Please reach out to your child’s teacher with any questions.

Distance Learning in Early Elementary: Supporting Your Child's Literacy Development

In this course, we will explore distance learning in early childhood, from kindergarten to 2nd grade. As we enter the 2nd half of this school year, how do I continue to support my child's growth and development both academically and socially? How do I keep my student engaged in reading and writing when literacy instruction looks so different from what it was in the face-to-face classroom? How can I support my student's emotional and social development as we continue into the new year away from family and friends?

We will answer all of these questions and more.
