Tiger Talk 20-21
Edition 4 #ExpectExcellence
Message from Mrs. Headrick
As expected with any new endeavor, there have been some adjustments for students who are participating in remote learning. Initially, there were several issues with logging on, but most of those appear to be resolved. Here are a couple of things that will really help your child to be a successful remote learner.
1. Make sure that your child logs on at the appropriate class time. If a student does not log on at the appropriate time, he/she may miss the class. Teachers are busy teaching remote and on-site learners at the same time. It is often difficult for them to have to stop class to continue to admit students who are late. A student who does not log in on time cannot be assured to be admitted to the class in a timely manner, especially if the class has started. We want all of our students, remote and on-site, to have the most successful learning experience possible.
2. If you are still having issues with logging on, please have your student email the teacher. All of the teacher's emails are listed in the student/parent handbook. I have included a copy of the non-abbreviated version of the student handbook in this newsletter for your review. Students received an abbreviated version of the handbook in their planner/agendas, but another one is included in this newsletter.
Our hashtag this school year is #ExpectExcellence. We want our students to know that they should expect excellence in all things...academics, sports, life, etc. We also want them to know that we also expect excellence from them. We will continue to strive for excellence this school year, no matter the challenges with which we are faced.
Thank you once again for your continued thoughts and prayers as this school year begins. As always, please feel free to reach out to me should you have any questions or concerns. My contact information is listed below.
