Fun with Mrs. Berumen during EDL
I've had so much fun seeing our students in the videos they've posted in response to my flipgrid questions. It's so great to see their sweet faces and hear their creative and amusing answers. :)
I'll be doing two flipgrids each week through the end of the school year. The teachers will share them with the students and they will also be accessible for student login via our school website. I'll be encouraging staff members to respond as well since our students haven't seen many of them since EDL began.
I will also be zooming with each class this week for my monthly read aloud. Please look out for that information from your child's teacher. I hope this is a nice way for all of us to feel connected during this challenging time.
Please also click here to access content from our visual and performing arts teachers. They have worked hard to provide continued learning opportunities for primary music and visual art and we appreciate their efforts.
Our elementary resource counselor, Mrs. Marrocco, has been popping into classroom sessions and staying connected with our students. She is available as a resource if you have any concerns or need pointers on how to help your child process the change in circumstances that we're experiencing. Please contact your child's teacher or me if you'd like us to connect you to Mrs. Marrocco.
IUSD Grab-and-Go Meal Program
Nutrition Services is providing free breakfasts and lunches to any IUSD student who needs them on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the same locations and hours of service that have been in place since the beginning of EDL (see iusd.org for more information on locations and times.) The meals provided on Monday will include meals for Monday and Tuesday, meals provided on Wednesday will include meals for Wednesday and Thursday, with meals provided on Friday for that day. This change was made to reduce parent trips and better align our practices with the principles of social distancing.

IUSD Technology Support & Internet Access
IUSD’s Information Technology team has been working around the clock to provide students access to devices and the internet during this time. As a reminder, Distance Learning opportunities can be accessed from any device at home, the District will continue the Chromebook checkouts for those in need. Please note, to adhere to social distancing guidelines, the technology checkouts will require an appointment in advance. To request an appointment, complete this Technology Access Form. After completion of the form, you will be provided with pick-up location options.
When can we get our stuff?
In the meantime, if there is an item that is absolutely essential to your child's learning or health that is located at school and you cannot wait until we are in safer circumstances, please reach out to your classroom teacher and we will work on arrangements to leave the item for you. We appreciate your consideration of the health and wellness of our limited staff members on campus when contemplating whether an item is essential or not. Thank you!
Stay connected by following us on social media and by posting images of your roadrunner with #LRdistancelearning.
