The Pettit Park Paper
Monthly news for Pettit Park Elementary Technology Academy
Please remember these things for mask care:
- It is a good idea to wash the mask after each school day.
- You can hand wash the mask and leave it in the sun to dry.
- You can wash and dry the mask with normal laundry (hint--put in a bag to prevent wear and tear).
- It is a good idea to have at least two masks so that you can rotate them. It may also be a good idea to put a spare one in the backpack in case you forget it one day.
We want to review a few items with you in order to help make our learning experiences better for our students!
- Please try to find a quiet place for your child to participate.
- Please try to limit background noise and interruptions from others.
- Students may struggle in bed or on a couch, so a place with a table and chair is ideal for the live lessons.
- We are required to take attendance for our virtual students each day. The attendance is updated at the end of each week. Teachers are also tracking attendance for sessions. Teachers will provide a weekly summary of attendance at each lesson/check-in session.
- Our teachers are working on recording video sessions in case your child misses a live session. These are a work in progress and often take time to upload…please be patient.
We appreciate your support in order to make this learning experience the best for your child!
