Updates from Mrs. Cooper

October 16th and 19th Remote Teaching and Learning

Friday, October 16th and Monday, October 19th, students and staff will be practicing for remote teaching and learning. All students and staff will be participating in the teaching and learning process remotely. This means NO STUDENTS WILL BE COMING TO PARSON HILLS ON OCTOBER 16TH AND 19TH for school. All students will be doing their work remotely on their iPad or Chrome Book at home. We will experience the same remote teaching and learning opportunity on Monday, November 23rd and Tuesday, November 24th prior to Thanksgiving break in November.


If you are working and need child care for your children during these remote learning days, the After School Program will be available for those that have enrolled. Please see the link below for the After School Program:

Student Led Conferences

It was great to see students, teachers, and parents communicating about students' growth over the first 5 weeks of school during conferences. Even though it was all done via technology, I saw lots of smiles, work shared, and goals discussed. Thanks to all you parents/guardians for zooming or taking phone calls to participate in your child's conference. We've met with almost all our families, but 100% participation is expected, so if you have not had a conference for your child, please contact your child's teacher or call the office to schedule.


Updated Contact Information

Parents/Guardians it is critical we have a way to contact you. In the process of trying to reach out to families to schedule conferenences, we found many numbers not working and families not living at the address listed. If there were to be an emergency, for example, a Covid illness, we must be able to immediately get ahold of you. Please call the office and update your phone number any time it changes.


Covid Safety

Please remember to send your child to school wearing a mask each day.


If you come to the building for any reason, you'll need to be wearing a face mask as well.


Arrival

If bringing kids to school by car, please have your children ready to go when it's your turn at the drop off zone in front of the cafeteria. They need their backpack on, face mask on, and to be unbuckled, so they can hop right out to head in the building. Also, if coming by car or walking, be sure to have all your hugs and kisses done before reaching the drop off zone, so our line will keep moving smoothly and kids make it to class on time. Keeping our lines smooth helps us keep our social distance requirements which keeps us all healthy and safe.
