Message from the Principal

The Eastridge staff is saddened by the Mayor’s news of closing all Marion County school buildings from November 30th - January 19th. We are doing our best to prepare our students for virtual learning. Please know that we are here to support you through this transition.


To help students familiarize themselves with caring from their iPads at home, their device (iPad), charger, and cord was sent home tonight (Friday, November 13th). Please charge those over the weekend and ensure that your child returns their iPad each day next week. We will use the iPads in school next week to help students practice with CANVAS. CANVAS will be our main resource to engage with students.


ALL IPADS should be charged each night and returned to school daily.


We are all in this together and share similar concerns. Through THE POWER OF ENGAGEMENT, we can make the most of this virtual learning window.


“TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE”



Mrs. Johnson

Principal





Saludos,


En Eastridge nos entristece la noticia del alcalde de cerrar todos los edificios escolares del condado de Marion del 30 de noviembre al 19 de enero. Hacemos nuestro mejor esfuerzo para preparar a nuestros estudiantes para el aprendizaje virtual. Tenga en cuenta que estamos aquí para ayudarlo en esta transición.


Para ayudar a los estudiantes a familiarizarse con el cuidado de sus iPads en casa, esta noche (viernes 13 de noviembre) se envió a casa el cargador y el cable de su dispositivo (iPad). Por favor, cárguelas durante el fin de semana y asegúrese de que su hijo devuelva su iPad todos los días de la próxima semana. Usaremos los iPads en la escuela la próxima semana para ayudar a los estudiantes a practicar con CANVAS. CANVAS será nuestro principal recurso para interactuar con los estudiantes.


TODOS LOS IPADS deben cargarse cada noche y devolverse a la escuela todos los días.


Todos estamos juntos en esto y compartimos preocupaciones similares. A través del PODER DEL COMPROMISO, podemos aprovechar al máximo esta ventana de aprendizaje virtual.


"JUNTOS PODEMOS HACER LA DIFERENCIA"
