HOW CAN YOU MONITOR YOUR STUDENT'S LEARNING PROGRESS?
Elementary and Middle School SEL Corner
Next week our Focus Area shifts to: Demonstrate a sense of personal responsibility (for the next two weeks). This means our Elementary School students will continue to showcase their self-management skills by working on Responsibility. Our Middle School students will begin working on: "I am responsible for myself and my actions."
REPEATED UPDATES AND REMINDERS SECTION
Recently, we have seen a rising number of COVID-19 cases across the state and several other schools in the county have had to switch to virtual learning. We have been fortunate thus far to avoid a major issue with COVID-19, but things can change quickly. We can all do our part by avoiding large gatherings, washing our hands, wearing masks, and maintaining social distancing whenever possible. Additionally, if your child is sick, please keep them home. They can access all of their learning virtually.
We know these are frustrating times, but if we pull together, we will be successful. We appreciate your support!! #ONEHIVE
WIFI PARKING LOTS ARE COMPLETE!!
The installation of WiFi antennas on the outside of both the ES/MS and HS buildings has been completed. We now have WIFI PARKING LOTS!!!! Families can access free WiFi 24 - 7 in almost every spot in both parking lots and the ES/MS drive and drop loop. We are beyond excited about the completion of the project. We will continue to look for ways to support our families and this is a big step to making digital more accessible for everyone.
Plus, we will keep sending hot spots out into our district on Wednesday. If you are in need of WiFi access, you can go to the location listed below at the scheduled time and access the internet. This will give families the opportunity to download or upload an assignment, easily attend a zoom meeting for additional support, and watch videos that are tough to stream and/or download at home.
