McClure Newsletter

November 2020

Hello McClure Families,

We have completed 45 (as of 10/28) days of virtual school. We miss you and your students more than ever and we are so proud of your efforts to help your child succeed in virtual school. I just wanted to remind you that Wednesday is still a school day, so make sure that your student is logging on and completing assignments and the question of the day. Make November a great month!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Lee

Principal

Attendance Counts Online!

What does "good attendance" mean during distance learning? Check out the attendance ladder to see where your child's attendance fits. We can work together to improve or keep your child's attendance going strong. The key is building a regular routine—going to sleep and waking up at the same time each day, logging into the morning meeting every day, and setting aside time for Google Classroom activities. Please call our attendance clerk for your child's information at 573-1300. Or, call our counselors at 573-1352 if we can help.


How is my child counted PRESENT?

Your child is marked "present" if he or she logs onto Google Meet or Google Classroom and completes assignments each day. It's best to attend all Google Meets because the teachers can motivate, teach, and support your child. If your child misses a Meet, he/she can still learn throughout that day on Google Classroom with videos and independent work to complete ANYTIME. Please contact your child's teacher or our attendance clerk about absences so we can support you.


If you need to report an absence due to sickness, appointments, family emergencies, internet or laptop issues, please call the McClure Office at 509-573-1300 or email ochoa.jay@ysd7.org so we can excuse their absence.

Thank-you to our DIBELS team.

We appreciate your hard work testing our kids in an online environment.

We have started the Student of the Week. If your student is selected please come to our Wednesday distribution on the Safeway side to receive their prize. You can see these winners on our Facebook site and in the teacher's classrooms. If you can not make it the week they are announced, students will be mailed a prize.

October will be our first Student of the Month. A celebration video will be coming out at the end of the month. You can find this on the Facebook page and on Teacher's Classrooms as well.
