The Crissman Connection

September 11, 2020

Hi Crissman Families,

The first week of full virtual/remote learning is complete! Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding as we worked through some technical issues and learned some new things in the field of technology. If you are still experiencing issues with your device at home, please reach out to our office at 586-797-4300 so we can troubleshoot and/or swap the defective device if needed.

In the coming weeks, our teachers will be accommodating their day to meet the needs of all our learners. Please be patient as our teachers adjust/modify their schedule to what works best for the class.

It was great to pop into a few LIVE lessons and get to see your kids! The kids are so excited and eager to share their ideas with their teacher and myself:). Just a reminder that proper digital citizenship is large part of the remote/virtual learning. It is important that you remind your child that the device is a "school" device and everything must be school-appropriate. We realize that this is all new for all our kiddos and therefore reminders are always great! Thank you for your support.

Take some time this weekend to enjoy your family! The weather looks amazing and I am sure the cider mills will be very busy!

The Crissman Office continues to work through Power School connectivity issues. We also heard from Power School that when Apple pushed out their recent operating system updates for iPhone and iPads, it caused the Power School app to stop working. Power School is working on a fix for this issue. Android users and anyone using a laptop or desktop computer should not have this issue.

We will continue to work through Power School issues as quickly as we can.
