VIRTUAL LEARNING

Students who have chosen to be virtual learners this year can contact their teacher through e-mail if they need assistance with their schoolwork. They will not continue to have scheduled Zoom meetings (this was done in the beginning so we were certain all students were able to access the learning platform).


Students who have chosen to be in person learners will be required to attend the daily Zoom sessions teachers schedule during virtual learning due to school closures.

MASKS

All K-6 students are required to wear masks at school. They do not need to wear them during recess.


Please make sure of the following:


1. Your child's name is on the mask

2. Keep an extra mask in your child's backpack in case something happens to their mask

3. Have a way for your child to keep track of their mask during breakfast/lunch and recess.

HAND WASHING

Ms. Julie, the school nurse, sent a video to demonstrate proper hand washing. Please make sure you watch this video with your child before in person learning begins on Tuesday, September 8th. I have included a link for the video below.


Sinks are located in the elementary classrooms. Students will be washing their hands many times throughout the day.


IN PERSON LEARNING

In person learning will begin on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. Please do not drop your child off before 7:40 am. The doors to the school open at 7:40 am. There is no supervision before 7:40 am.


If your child has already eaten breakfast, they will enter the building by the elementary school office. They will go straight to their classroom and read until school begins at 8:00 am.


If your child needs to eat breakfast, they will enter the building at the district entrance by the tiger statue. Please make sure they are at school at 7:40 so they have plenty of time to eat.


iPads - All students need to bring their iPad and charger to school each day. Please make sure your child charges their iPad each evening so it is ready to go for the day.


Water Bottles - Students will not be able to drink from the water fountains, but they will be able to use the water bottle filler. Ms. Julie has a water bottle at school for each student. Please make sure your child brings their water bottle home regularly to have it washed and then make sure it is returned to school.
