UHMS - Parent Newsletter

March 2020 Edition II

Extended Spring Break, Virtual Learning, and More!

Hello Phoenix Families -


We are very excited to be back together as a campus even if there is a bit of distance between us. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. We will continue to send weekly updates via parent newsletter, campus grade levels, and or individual teachers. We ask that you all remain "Palm Trees", flexible and adaptable as we navigate this new world of Virtual Learning. At this time, we do not have any information about grade promotion, graduation, and a proposed date for resuming school, however, as updates become available, we will share that with you all.

OFFICIAL UPLIFT CLOSING LETTER

Everything a Hampton Parent Needs to Know - About Virtual Learning!

Overview: UHMS will be providing lessons from our teachers! That's right, starting Monday, March 23rd scholars can login to their teachers google classroom/online classroom to watch recorded lessons and complete assignments from their grade level teachers. Each day, a different content/teacher(s) will offer virtual lessons from their google classrooms, in addition to office hours where you and your scholar can ask clarifying questions on assignments and lessons via virtual or by email.


What days will each content/teacher offer his/her lesson?

Review the Hampton Virtual Schedule below. Where is says "Network Options", scholars will still log on the the Uplift Youtube page at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCH2ViG3HABnAV0ypHovvR1w. Scholars will then follow the rest of the UHMS schedule as listed for that day.


How does my scholar get access to their teacher's Google Classroom?

Under the section "UHMS Teacher Google Classrooms", scholars will find their teachers names and use the code under "Classroom Code" to join their google classroom on google. Be sure to watch the video under that section that shows you and you scholar the step by step process.


Grades: We understand that its a trying time with adjusting to virtual learning. With that said, we are strongly encouraging you to motivate your scholars to complete the assignments/tasks that are being asked of them so they continue learning and getting prepared for their next grade level. Teachers will be keeping documentation of scholars progress on these assignments and will be communicating with you, just as if we were on campus.

FAMILY TIME TIPS --- Cabin Fever, Help!

Take up some sun: Go outside and just enjoy the fresh air. Take some time to talk about the current state of our country or make plans for when you can socialize with society again.


TV/Movie: Find a family, friendly, television show or movie to watch together. Pair it with a favorite household snack.


Dance Challenge: Find a song and create a family routine. Record it and send it to friends and family!

SNAP, SNAP! GOOD THINGS CAUGHT ON CAMERA!

What's happening around Hampton?

All UHMS Field Trips, cancelled!

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, all field trips that were schedule for the remainder of the year are cancelled. We know that our scholars were looking forward to spending quality time with their peers, however, the safety of our scholars comes first. As we receive information about refunds, we will communicate directly with those parents on the process as it becomes available to us.

You can download the app and simply enter the class codes below or send a text to 81010 with the class code in the text box.(you must include the @ sign in the classcode)

Need to Meet With Administration?


1. Request a Virtual Meeting: Now that we cannot meet face to face, send us a request via email to meet virtually - Google Hangout, Skype, Zoom, etc to discuss your concerns "face to face".


2. Email – All emails addresses can be found on our Uplift Website as well as at the bottom of every newsletter. Emailing can possibly save time by eliminating phone tag especially if a call back may occur during difficult to answer situations such as work hours.
