TIGER TALK

Week of September 7-11, 2020

Great Start to a New School Year!

Last week, was an exciting time to see our students both in-person and virtual. Thank you for making the transition to in school a success.


As we start this week with all in-person students in PreK-5th joining us, please continue to be patient with us as we navigate through all of our safety procedures. Students did a great job last week following all the protocols we have in place.


Parents/Guardians- we appreciate your patience and willingness to partner with us in your child's education.

Attendance Flow Chart

This year attendance protocols are going to look quite different from the spring of 2020.

We want to be very clear with TEA expectations regarding attendance.


On-campus:


  • tardy bell at 7:40AM
  • students are expected to be present & on- time
  • doctor, dentist, health appointments are understandable, try to schedule in the afternoon (if possible)
  • absences due to illnesses need to be called in by parent/guardian
  • always get a doctor note to have your child's absence excused
  • absences exceeding 10% TEA regulation will be monitored


Virtual:

Synchronous:

  • Virtual Zoom calls start at 8:00AM
  • to be counted present- your child needs to attend all 4 content areas (ELA, Math, Science, & SS), participating with the virtual teacher
  • missing any of the content area zoom calls will lead in needing to finish that content area assignment, turning in by 11:59PM THAT DAY in Schoology- to be counted present
  • absences due to illnesses need to be called in by parent/guardian
  • always get a doctor note to have your child's absence excused
  • absences exceeding 10% TEA regulation will be monitored


Asynchronous:

  • work in all 4 content areas must be turned in by 11:59PM THAT DAY in Schoology to be counted present


If you have any questions on this, please ask your child's homeroom teacher for more clarification.

*On-campus students, please have your Chromebook charged and in your backpack each day.

Mask are highly recommended for students younger than 10 years. Wearing facial coverings allows for more opportunities like:

  • Student movement within the classroom;

  • Rotation classes such as music, art, and PE, to continue with minimal change;

  • Age-appropriate classroom and group activities to continue with minimal change;

  • Safer student movement throughout the building;

  • Efficient arrival and dismissal procedures;

  • Quicker movement through the cafeteria and back to the classroom.
