Hannah Gibbons' Family Updates

November 13, 2020

Hello Hannah Gibbons' Families,

Due to the increasing positive COVID cases across the state of Ohio, we are kindly asking that you schedule visits to Hannah Gibbons. In an effort to decrease the spread of COVID, our administrative team will come in to Hannah Gibbons 2 days a week to meet any technology needs on an appointment basis. I want to remind you of our the technology procedures for damaged, stolen, and all tech challenges. If you are having technology challenges please call 216-838-0440 to reach our Tech Support Line. If the Techs are unable to assist you, they will provide you with a ticket number that you need to provide to the school in order to exchange your child's device. Please note that we do not have an abundance of devices on hand and it may take a couple of days to replace your device, we will do so as quickly as possible.

If your child is experiencing tech challenges, it is important that you call the help desk as soon as possible and notify the school of your tech ticket so that attendance can be adjusted. Please be sure to see the various fliers posted below as many contain resources that you may find beneficial.

As a reminder...

Report Cards will be mailed home next week. You may find that your child has an I or and Incomplete on their report card. This means that your child has not completed their all of their work in one or more content areas. If your child does not complete these assignments, the I or incomplete will turn into an F at the end of the semester. Please work with your child's teacher(s) to identify what is missing.

Parent Teacher Conferences are fast approaching, and we want to ensure that we are reaching as many families as possible. We have worked hard to make the sign up process as easy as possible. The steps to set up a conference are included here, please note that you will have to repeat the process for each child that you wish to schedule a meeting for.

  1. Review the schedule here to see what time slots are open. The time slots on in the column on the left and the teachers names are located along the top.
  2. You will then use this form (also included below) to indicate 3 times that you are available to meet with the content teachers and encores (PE & ASL). You will also indicate if you want Art & Music educators to reach out to you that week as well since they aren't scheduled with us on Wednesdays. *If there aren't any scheduled conference times that meet the your needs, you will be able to indicate that and the teacher(s) will reach out to you next week.
  3. Once a form is completed, you will receive an emailed response within 24 hours with the link to the zoom conference and a confirmed time, if you selected a time to meet.
  4. Use the Zoom link on the date and time of your conference and meet with the teacher!

Have a great weekend!
