Announcements & Updates 4.6.2021
Hello Maybury Parents & Scholars and welcome back from Spring Break as we dive into week 14 of 2021! We are excited to get back on track and finish the year strong!
For those scholars attending 100% virtually, please be sure to pay close attention to the state testing schedule as scholars need to be prepared to be onsite to complete their Ohio assessments. Testing for 100% virtual scholars begins as of April 12th!
4th Grade A/B Change begins today:
Beginning today, April 6th, 2021, as we return from spring break, 4th grade will move from a C day schedule to an A/B day schedule as we have reached our maximum capacity in the 4th grade classroom. This means that your scholar will either attend A days (Monday & Tuesday) or B days (Thursday & Friday). Please only send your scholars on their designated day per the communication you received from Ms. Harvey.
Cell Phone Policy Reminder:
As of today, April 6th, 2021, scholars will need to be prepared to turn in their cell phones as they enter the building until the end of the day as was done in the past. Each classroom will have a container and each scholar will have a ziplock bag with his/her name on it. Please help us by ensuring your scholar comes to school with their phone already in their bag and ready to drop into the appropriate container as to ensure a smooth morning start that runs alongside their temperature checks and grabbing breakfast. Should there be an emergency where your scholar needs to contact you, they can alert their teacher they need to go to the front office and should you need to contact them, please simply call our front office at 614-626-2250. We thank you in advance for your help in facilitating and navigating this change!
- Our school day runs from 8:00-2:00 pm. Onsite scholars should be picked up at 2:00 pm, but no later than 2:15 pm as our teachers need to transition to teaching their virtual scholars. 100% virtual scholars will receive live instruction from 2:30-4:00 pm. Your scholars teacher will communicate directly with scholars and parents via email, class dojo, and kickboard with login platforms and information. 100% virtual scholars all have required work to complete throughout the school day so it is imperative that they/you are consistently checking their emails and submitting the required work.
- PLEASE remember to have your scholar bring their device each time they come onsite. Have them charge their devices the night before so they are ready to rock and roll when the school day begins!
- Please be sure that your scholar is logging on daily at his/her scheduled time. Attendance is taken every day. We are mandated by the state to withdraw any scholar who misses 72 consecutive hours of school.
- The new schedule is linked below for you to review. Please note that Wednesday's 100% virtual scholars receive a rotation of specials from 8:00-11:00 am and then receive live instruction via whole group/small group from 11:30-3:30. Specific login times for 11:30-3:30 will be communicated with parents and scholars from the teacher.

HOTSPOT USAGE REMINDERS
As a reminder, hotspots usage are STRICTLY for school work only. There is a 22gb data cap for 4G. Once that cap is reached the device will revert to 3G which produces slower speeds.
This means your child will experience difficulty connecting to the internet until the new cycle renews on the 16th of each month.
In the event hotspots are identified as being misused, they may risk being deactivated. Please reach out with any further questions.

Device Care & Tips
Many of our scholars have received devices for virtual learning.
Below are a few tips to prevent the devices from low performance, damage, or accidental lost.
Ø Ensure the case remains on the IPad or Chromebook.
Ø Ensure food and drink are not around the device.
Ø Ensure scholars are stationary when using the device.
Ø Monitor data usage on the hotspot.
Ø When lessons have concluded for the day, ensure the scholar places the device in the same location for the next day.
Ø Ensure that your scholar's device is plugged in at the end of the day in order to be fully charged for the next school day.
