Hi! We missed you all! This week we will be trying to get back into the groove of school. Here are some tips to help:


1. Set up a regular schedule/routine and practice it on Sunday!

Set your alarm clock, eat breakfast, have your computer ready to go, create a "School space" and on Sunday morning, complete a "dry run" to see how it works. STRUCTURE will be our friend for the next 8 wees!


2. Make a list of contact information and keep it next to the computer.

Each teacher has an email address and some have phone numbers listed. Write this contact information down and keep it next to your student device. If something happens to your device during class or a help session, then you have a way to contact your teacher to let them know.


3. Ask for help!!

During this time, NO question is a stupid question! We are navigating this difficult time with all of you. Don't know where to find the link to each class, not sure where to post your discussion post comment, how do you turn in your homework assignment, need a way to contact your teacher? JUST ASK! We are here to help!!


4. If you have a problem with your device, like it shuts down, the mouse stops working, or it stops working, then contact your CAT teacher or call the USD #475 Tech Help Desk at 785-717-4357 M-F from 7:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m.


5. BREATHE!! Chances are we will have some technology issues with Schoology, ZOOM, Skyward, email, etc. It is ok. It is not a life or death matter, but your health and the health of your family IS!!! Breathe and know we are all in this together and we can get through this!


6. My mom passed away from lung cancer in 2009. One of the best pieces of advice she ever passed on to me was...

"This, too, shall pass!"


A month from now we will be online learning and teaching pros! A year from now, we will look back on this and say, "Look how we survived!" And when you are all parents, you can tell your kids about the COVID-19 online schooling in 2020! (Just make sure to tell them you walked uphill, in the snow, both ways, to get to your computer in your living room!) ;)
