Principal Update

Weekly Update

Greetings,

We are counting down the days until we get to engage with our students and families during distance learning. As our school team prepares for students' arrival, we have a couple of updates and asks:


First Day of School

Beaumont staff will welcome students back to school on September 2, 2020. Students will log-in to their Canvas accounts and begin the rollout of our soft start (more information on what the soft start will look like next week).



Device Survey

As we prepare for the return of our students, our administration team would like to learn about our students' device needs. Please take 3-5 minutes to complete the Beaumont Device Need Survey (click the link). Our goal is to hear from 100% of our families about their current device needs.


Device Distribution

Last spring, device distribution took place at identified distribution hubs at various points of the city. PPS sent out a survey to families at the end of school. We heard your feedback! We have a new system for distributing devices to students. We are working out the fine details; however, we have learned that students will pick-up devices from their schools. More information about logistics will be soon to come.


Schedules

Last, but certainly not least. We know students and families are excited to log-in to Student/ParentVue to review schedules. Please hold off for the time being. We are fine-tuning our students' schedules and will send out communication as soon as they are ready to be reviewed. With that being said, if you have scheduling specific questions, please reach out to our Assistant Principal, Ms.Davis (rdavis@pps.net).


Further, if your child forecasted for a Teacher's Aide elective, that elective will be replaced with a different elective option. Unfortunately, with the virtual learning model, we are not able to offer students the TA elective at this moment.


We will see you all very soon!

Ms.V and Ms.Davis
