12/6/2020 - Persistence and Grit
Hello Families! This season is really leading us to reach to the bottom of our barrels for physical, emotional, and spiritual strength. Whether you're a parent doing your best to balance work and home, a scholar pushing through virtual learning when all you want is to see your friends, or a staff member continuing to learn your job in a whole new way; what was true before this season, and remains even more true than ever, is that we must walk through this as a team! Parents we are here to support you and want to keep striving to help your scholar to succeed. We have two weeks before Christmas Break, please help us to encourage scholars to work hard for these next two weeks!
Virtual Schedules: This will be WEEK B. Your scholar's virtual schedule is below
Spirit Week: Monday 12/14 - Friday 12/18
STEPP Advisory: Tuesday 12/15 - ZOOM Link below, come meet with other parents for support during this season.
Two Half-Days: - Thursday 12/17 and Friday 12/18
Christmas Break: Monday (12/21) - Friday (1/1). Virtual schedule resumes Monday, January 4th.
Quarter 2 Ends: Monday, January 11th.
Winter MAP Testing: January 11th - January 22nd.
Attendance: We are required to monitor your scholar's attendance as we have always done. Attendance is also directly tied to your scholar's success in their classes. Attending ZOOM sessions are a must in order for your scholar to understand how to complete assignments and to receive the support needed to achieve quality grades. Teachers are also available outside of class time to work with scholars. Please take advantage of this!
Grades: Your scholar's interims are available online (link to directions below). If you are having a hard time connecting to see them please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we can send them to you. Also remember that your scholar's grades are ALWAYS available, with specifics, through their Google Classroom.
Meals: Meals will be available for pick up on Monday from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm. Please drive around to the back door. Thank you!
After-School Program: VIRTUAL OPTION! Please register here: http://bit.ly/AplusPLAreadingsignup Parents, this program is not the same as last year. Your scholars will be able to receive intensive Reading remediation as well as supports in Math. Please note, this is not a program simply to complete homework. The focus will be working on skills that will benefit them across all content areas and allow homework to be completed in a more efficient manner, independently.
Help Desk: PLA has a help desk to help meet your technology needs. Please see the link below.
Calendar: Attached you will find the school calendar. We will be sure to communicate other important dates weekly

Technology Needs and Concerns? (please click below)
Below are a few tips to prevent the devices from low performance, damage, or accidental lost.
Ø Ensure the case remains on the IPad or Chromebook.
Ø Ensure food and drink are not around the device.
Ø Ensure scholars are stationary when using the device.
Ø Monitor data usage on the hotspot.
Ø When lessons have concluded for the day, ensure the scholar places the device in the same location for the next day.
Ø Ensure that your scholar's device is plugged in at the end of the day in order to be fully charged for the next school day.
If you have any questions regarding your scholar’s device, please contact: Harold Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-725-1305 ext.1001.
