The Hoot Owl
Oak Ridge Elementary 2020 - 2021
Welcome to ORE!
As we look forward to the school year, we want to ensure all parents that we will do our best to meet the needs of all students no matter whether your child is participating via distance learning or face to face learning. Building a partnership with you and your child is the best way that we can ensure success in the learning process. I want to encourage you to work with your child's teacher to build a relationship, work at home with your child, and commit to making the 20-21 a year to remember because of the success of learning!
Here's to a great year as we forge new territory and create a success story for all!
COUNSELOR - MS. HENDERSON
Hello! I'm Kai Henderson and I am happy to be your new school counselor! A little bit about myself- I love to watching sports (any sport!), reading, swimming, and spending time with my family. I look forward to working with the students, parents, and staff at Oak Ridge Elementary this school year. Please feel free to reach out to me to let me know if there is anything you need, I will love to help! email@example.com
VIRTUAL LEARNING INFORMATION
*Each Friday, you will receive an email calendar from your child's teacher with the schedule for the following week, including assignments, their due dates, and times of live lessons.
*Attendance will be recorded based upon participation - via live teaching on Zoom, logging into SeeSaw or Canvas (depending on grade level), and/or completion of assigned and turned in on due date. (more information about this will come)
*Most live teaching will be completed in the morning with a few exceptions but once a schedule is established, it will remain the same throughout the year. If you are unable to attend the live lessons, they will be recorded and posted for viewing at a later time.
*Teachers will host "office hours" daily so that parents and/or students can log in and ask specific questions. They will also be available via email throughout the school day.
SCHOOL SHIRTS AND FACE MASK ORDER COMING SOON!
While face masks are not required for students under the age of 10, they are strongly encouraged. These face masks are stretchy, and should fit most students.
We will be selling them from our school store website with detailed instructions to come. Shirts will start at $15 and masks will start at $8.00.
TECHNOLOGY ASSISTANCE FOR VIRTUAL LEARNING
*Students need to be logged in and ready to start class at the designated time. Think about logging in a couple of minutes early in order to be prepared.
*School appropriate clothing is expected including a shirt and shorts/pants. If a shirt has writing on it, it must be school appropriate (nothing vulgar, inappropriate language, advertising)
*Students need to participate at appropriate times and avoid interrupting the teacher when she/he is teaching.
*Cameras need to be on during lesson so that teacher can make face to face contact with every child.
