Message from the Principal
This newsletter is going to provide some information as to what to expect moving forward IF schools are to remain closed after April 6.
At Hebron, we have broken down our plan in three stages. The first stage was prior to spring break where students completed work packets.
Phase 2 - April 6-9: After spring break, each grade level has created a newsletter outlining the work for the week. We will be mailing these Newsletters home by Friday, April 3. They will also be posted on the Distance Learning Portal, and emailed to families. Your child is to work on their grade level work, as well as participating in the Unified Arts Bingo Activities. The work for this week is a combination of on-line activities and paper pencil activities.
Phase 3- April 13 and on- We will no longer be doing mailers at this time. We will be sharing grade level newsletters through the district Portal, email, and the teachers communication method. Hebron teacher's plan to either use Remind or Dojo. The work from this point forward will be using our on-line resources such as STMath, Zearn, Lexia, and Raz Kids (K-1), and Epic Books grade 2, in addition to pencil and notebook paper activities. Your child's teacher will be providing more information.
The week of April 6, student work will be mailed to everyone, along with report cards during the week of March 30. Be on the lookout. Please be patient, all the schools in Lakewood are trying to get out final mailers, and reports cards next week and the week of April 6. Due to us practicing safe working conditions, our information may be slightly staggered during the next couple weeks. Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you for you patience as we all navigate this new experience. We appreciate all you are doing, and know that the staff at Hebron is working hard to support continued learning.
Please stay healthy and safe.

A Message from Mr. Coffey our Dean of Students
I just want to say a quick hello to all Hebron students and families. I can’t begin to tell you how much I miss seeing you each day, and how much I am looking forward to being together again. Until then, I want you all to know that I am still here to help. Please feel free to email me, or text/ call my cell phone, 740.739.0908 if I can be of any assistance at all. I am really enjoying all the texts and photos sent by families. They warm my heart!
Students, your teachers have been working very hard to give you the tools you need to keep your brain strong, just like we talked about at school. I am asking you to work hard and do your very best so that when we are together again, we can finish up and get ready for next year! Whether in school or out, my job is to make sure everyone is okay and has everything they need to be successful. Parents, please let me know if you need anything, school related or otherwise. I’d love to help. Until we meet again, my little HEBROS and SHE-BROS, remember to always be kind, be safe, and be helpful.
My love to you all,
Wellness with Weaver-Our School Counselor
Hello Hebron Families!
First I want to send hugs to all the students and parents in our district. I don’t know what each of you are dealing with, but if it has been anything like my house it probably involves some type of stress. Stress of work, kids, balance, food, and other supplies (toilet paperJ), and most of all not getting sick. That’s a lot of stuff. I hope all of you are taking care of yourselves!
I know it’s not easy to balance all of these stressors along with keeping your family healthy. I’m sure all of us has been experiencing some level of anxiety. Just remember, we don’t have to figure everything out at once. Let’s take it day by day and just breathe. I can’t tell you how many times I have had to say that to myself!
Parents, give yourself permission to take care of you too. You might want to go for a quite walk alone, meditate or practice some mindfulness, do some yoga, exercise, listen to music, watch a little tv. Whatever you choose to do, take a little time to breathe. Have your children show you how to do a Calm Classroom activity. It works wonders for a calming activity.
I want to help you and the kids through this difficult time. Below I have included some new resources I have created to hopefully help through this time of uncertainty. We can get through this together.
Along with the resources below I am available to talk one on one with your students on Zoom. You can email me and we can decide on a good time for both of us.
One last item: I will be at Hebron Elementary on Fridays with the YMCA book bags. I will be there 10:30 – 11:30. If you want one please email me so I can have the right number of book bags. If you have never gotten one before it has cereal and a few items to help through the weekend. You may email me even if you have never had one before.
Take care and stay healthy. Please reach out and use the resources below or contact me directly for anything. Miss you all!

Zoom Parent information
INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS ABOUT ZOOM
What is Zoom? Zoom is an easy-to-use video/audio communication platform, that allows collaboration, chat, and webinars across mobile devices, desktops, and telephones.
Other information to know about Zoom:
● Students under the age of 18 should not go to www.zoom.us to create an account because they should only be joining Zoom sessions through teacher provided links. Minors are not permitted to create an account per Zoom’s Terms of Service.
● When students participate in live Zoom sessions, other Zoom participants can see and hear what is happening in the background of each participant.
● Live Zoom instructional sessions may be recorded and posted for other students to access at a later time.
● Student Code of Conduct guidelines are in effect during live Zoom sessions. Further, sessions may be recorded and posted. Students are to maintain levels of respect toward others through live sessions and with regards to content that is recorded and posted.
Like Zoom, there are similar platforms teachers may also use during this school closure time such as Google Classroom/Meet/Sites, Class Dojo, Moodle, Edulastic, etc. The guidelines above pertain to your student’s participation in any of these digital resources.
Here are some ideas that can be used not just in the classroom but also at home.
Make sure you also check our Hebron Facebook page, we put a lot of information up on the website. We would love for our parents to share any links or ideas they are doing at home during the next three weeks with their children!
