Message from the Mill

March 2022

A Message from Mrs. Rhodes

Monday was a big day at Puckett's Mill as we followed GCPS guidelines and made the move from requiring masks to strongly recommending masks. Teachers and staff are sending the message and modeling for students that it is okay to wear a mask to school, but it is also okay not to wear a mask to school. This change fell alongside the decision to have all students return to the cafeteria to eat lunch every day. We are hopeful that we will remain in a state of "low" transmission and will soon be able to welcome lunch visitors and school-wide volunteers back into the building.

School Chromebooks for Digital Learning

Students whose parents have completed the Chromebook request form will have a Chromebook sent home with them beginning Friday, January 7th, and every day following. This will become our general practice in order to ensure that all students have the materials they need at home regardless of digital or in-person instruction. On any device at home, students can access their teacher's eCLASS course page as well as programs such as Classworks, iReady, and Amplify to practice grade level concepts and skills. The students use these programs at school and will know how to access them from home via their device.
