Technology Distribution and Resources

  • Our building technology team will be working hard to get all remaining devices out to students early next week. Once all NEW students are registered by the district in PowerSchool, we can work to issue them a device. For 3rd-6th grade students, we need to issue them an Apple ID, which is dependent upon Apple Manager being up and running for us next week (there was a glitch this past week). As SOON as each device is ready for pickup, we will call to arrange a pick up time. Before picking up your device, you must submit the Technology Agreement Forms electronically.


  • If you do not yet have your school-issued iPad, please try to make arrangements for your child to utilize the GoToMeeting app on any devices you may have- in order for them to attend their first day virtual meetings.

Online Learning Platforms: Expected to Launch During Week Two

Our district will be utilizing many of the same Online Learning Platforms that we've always used.


ItsLearning

All content will be accessed in ItsLearning- our Learning Management System. Teachers are not expected to have access to ItsLearning until Sept. 8- at which point, they will need time to build their content into the system. Although students will have opportunities to explore ItsLearning the first week, we anticipate that new content/curriculum will start to get pushed out during the following week.


Additional Learning Platforms

In addition, Zearn, SeeSaw, and Myon (new this year) will be utilized to assist with student learning. Teachers rely heavily on these platforms in order to facilitate online learning. These programs require student logins that are synced with PowerSchool- and that process occurs during the second week of school. We appreciate your patience as we work to connect every student with each of these platforms for the upcoming year.


In Summary

We're going to start slow, to go fast. The focus for the first week, as always, will be to establish connections and build relationships. Students will begin to get acclimated to an online learning environment and our technology department will be working through inevitable kinks. Heavier content will progressively start to get layered into all classes during the second week of school.

SUGGESTED SCHOOL SUPPLY LISTS

We know everyone has been eagerly awaiting the suggested school supply lists and we thank you for your patience in getting these out to you.


Because most students will be attending school once per week, our teachers indicated what students need both at school and at home. Teachers will discuss this during Meet The Teacher Night- but, generally speaking, families can make the decision about whether or not they want to have supplies that are transported to and from school everyday or have a set of supplies for each location. We are unable to allow students to share their supplies this year.


Our district has provided our school custodians with an adequate amount of cleaning and disinfecting supplies. However, teachers are always looking for donations of disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer for their classrooms. If you happen to get lucky enough to stumble upon any, and wish to donate them- teachers would be so grateful! We always need Kleenex too!


Please access our suggested school supply lists here.
