Individual links to teacher meetings are below. If you are the parent of multiple students, you will have opportunities to visit different classroom meetings. Teachers will host class meetings in 15-minute intervals to allow for parents who may need to meet with multiple teachers.

There will be a 5 minute transition period to allow parents to be able to log out of one meeting and join another. See times below:

Session 1 - 6:00pm

Session 2 - 6:25pm

2020-2021 Class Placement

A great deal of time, effort, and thought has gone into the process of student placement for the 2020-2021 school year. Careful consideration was given with regards to staff as well as student learning styles. All classrooms have been balanced academically and socially. Our class lists are structured to provide equitable class sizes at each grade level. Moving students is difficult without causing imbalances and inequities.

Thank you so much for understanding and being positive with your child, by helping him or her understand that it is impossible to place all students with a preferred best friend or teacher. All of our staff work hard to make school a positive experience for all students. Rosa Parks-Millbrook Elementary is eagerly looking forward to helping you build a bright future for your child. Thank you for understanding that it can take a few weeks for a child to acclimate to a new grade, new peer group, new teacher, and new digital learning environment.

#Be Prepared

School starts at 8:00 a.m. All virtual classes will begin instruction at 8:00. Students should follow as normal a school schedule as possible to help get back into the routine of being in school.

This would include the basics of hygiene and getting dressed and eating breakfast before class starts at 8:00 am. Please plan accordingly so that your child can be seated in their learning spot, ready to learn promptly at 8:00 a.m. Our goal is to create as normal a school setting as possible during these times of working to keep each other safe. Thanks for your help in meeting this goal!

  2. Make a schedule and stick to it.
  3. Reduce distractions.
  4. Help your child stay organized. Color-coding helps.
  5. Get plenty of exercise.
  6. Understand the features of the technology.
  7. Reach out to your child's teacher.
  8. Look for ways to remove learning barriers.

See the article linked below, by Sean Smith, for more details about each tip listed.
