Weekly update for the Meadows Elementary School community
Week Six of Distance Learning 9/21-9/25
Last week was a tough week for everyone- students, families, teachers and administrators! I want to thank each of you for hanging in there and being supportive of one another.
Over the course of the last few days, our district IT team with experts have been working long hours to address the ransomware issue. While our district has provided asynchronous instructional lessons, we know that we want to get back to the Google Classroom and live instruction as quickly and safely as possible. There will be two more days of asynchronous instruction, Monday and Tuesday of this week and no google classroom on Monday and Tuesday. Click here for the lesson for Monday, 9/21. The return to google classroom will be assessed on Monday and Tuesday of this week. There have been many safety precautions that the district has had to take to ensure this could happen. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
As a reminder, on September 24th and 25th, we will have outdoor picture day and a distribution of important math materials and other items. The picture times were sent out this last week in an email and your alphabetically assigned time is posted on social media. Please arrive during your assigned time. The pictures will take no less than ten minutes. Plan to wait in your vehicle in the valet line. Staff and/or parent volunteers will escort students over to the outdoor picture area then escort them back to your vehicle with their materials. We will have plenty of staff and we are looking for more parent volunteers to assist. See the graphic below to contact PTSA President to become a parent volunteer, Mrs. Hamblin.
Please also remember to bring your district issued laptop (charged and powered on) so we can install additional security software into the device. This will be an additional layer of safety. If we cannot complete the installation on picture day, we will arrange for an appointment time for you at a later date. Thank you for your patience.
We look forward to resuming our normal programming later this week and reconnecting with our students! Please reach out with any questions by contacting our main office Mon-Fri from 7:30am-4:00pm at 661-291-4050. I can now be reached via email as well.
