Frequently asked questions, Part 2:
Why can’t we see grades for this term in Skyward?
We had to adapt our report cards for pass/fail this term. Due to the way Skyward is set up to load into our “normal” report card template it will not support the distance learning model. You will receive a progress report for your child/ren on May 8, May 22, and June 5.
Can my child fail this term?
Yes. If your child is not doing any work, or not making a legitimate attempt at quality work, he/she can fail 4th term.
Why is the school sending so many emails?
At the beginning of our closure we directed the staff to reach out to all families to ensure we were supporting you in any way possible (not just academically). Now that our distance learning plan is up and running, we still want to support your needs while making sure you have all the information to assist your Husky with academics.
Where can I find my child’s Zoom class links?
Links to Zoom sessions are uploaded to the grade level common calendars.
Are Spanish, P.E., science, and computer classes required?
In Y5-2nd grade these classes are optional. In grades 3-8 Spanish and science are part of the weekly online learning.
What will school “look like” in the fall?
We don’t know yet. As soon as we do, we will let you know.
When and where do I return my student’s packets?
Following social distancing guidelines, packets may be returned every other Monday, from
9 am - noon and Tuesdays from 3 pm to 6 pm for the previous weeks. There will be boxes set up for each elementary grade level and each middle school homeroom teacher in the vestibule.
Return dates are as follows:
May 18 - 9 am - noon
May 19 - 3 pm - 6 pm
June 1 - 9 am - noon
June 2 - 3 pm - 6 pm
The final date to return packets will be Wednesday, June 10 from 9am - 6 pm. Tables will be set up in the main gym for each homeroom teacher. Textbooks and classroom materials should also be returned at this time.
