From The Principal's Desk March 15, 2020

Greetings!


I hope this message finds our WCES family doing well. We know that these are different times for all of us and together we will get through this.


There have been several updates related to school closings and the COVID -19 virus sent to stakeholders over the past several days. Please know that we will continue to inform you of any new information as soon as we can. Thanks so much for your patience and strength during this time.


Below are a few tips and reminders:

1.Virtual Learning begins tomorrow. All lessons have been shared via email and Class Dojo. Teachers will be available throughout the normal school hours. If you have a question, please email your child's teacher or contact them via Class Dojo. It will be important to allow 1 hour for responses to allow teachers time to address all inquiries. Inquiries after school hours may take a 24 hour turn around time.

***Be sure to check Class Dojo and emails regularly.


2. Information is forthcoming regarding log in for Infinite Campus for parents. This will give you access to your child's reporting information. The district will send an email to all active parent email addresses with additional information.


3. Social Distancing is imperative. Please see the communication from the district. https://www.fultonschools.org/coronavirus

REMINDER about Social Distancing:

We also encourage our community to follow CDC guidelines about social distancing.

The CDC and public health officials are continuing to share guidance for the general public to practice "social distancing," which they have described as "all individuals should limit community movement and adapt to disruptions in routine activities." The CDC also says, "social distancing means remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible." Please be mindful and take precautions daily. These measures and overall good hygiene practices will help mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

4. During the current break, FCS has developed a remote learning plan, aligned to the Georgia Standards of Excellence, that allows students to continue their classes from home while awaiting their return to a physical school environment. Plans will be implemented starting March 16, 2020 through March 20, 2020 and continued the following week if needed. Students and parents will receive more information directly from their schools and teachers about their specific remote learning plans. Additional information is available via this link.


5. REMINDER Meal Distribution:

Our student meal distribution will begin on Monday, March 16 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at six sites across the county.

  • Lake Forest Elementary School, Sandy Springs
  • Mimosa Elementary, Roswell
  • Haynes Bridge Middle School, Alpharetta
  • Tri-Cities High School, East Point
  • Banneker High School, College Park
  • Langston Hughes High School, Fairburn

For all arriving by car, meals will be brought out to you; please do not leave your vehicle. Individuals arriving by foot or public transportation should avoid congregating in large groups. Although we appreciate the willingness of our community to assist, we are not allowing volunteers. Please know we have limited staff. We appreciate your patience as they are dedicated and will coordinate this effort as efficiently as possible, but our goal remains to complete this while keeping potential exposure to the community as limited as possible. Details about locations and times for this distribution program can be found here.

Stay safe and stay inside if you can.

Virtual Assignment Tips

Parents, try not to stress over the virtual lessons provided. we are aware that some may have limited devices and internet access.


1. If you are unable to print assignments, the use of a plain piece of notebook paper can be used. Ask your child to write his/her name , date and subject information.They can number their paper accordingly and write the answers next to the corresponding numbers.


2. Complete the assignments as thoroughly as you can. Any assignments that pose difficulties, tab it and alert your child's teacher. They will provide support as needed.


3. When students return to school, a make up period of 2 weeks will be extended to complete assignments as needed.


4. Take time to have a little fun through this virtual learning experience. The PE activities can be done as a family. They provide physical activity that can be helpful at relieving stress during this time.


5.

Habit #6 Synergize

To put it simply, synergy means "two heads are better than one." Synergize is the habit of creative cooperation. It is teamwork, open-mindedness, and the adventure of finding new solutions to old problems. But it doesn't just happen on its own. It's a process, and through that process, people bring all their personal experience and expertise to the table. Together, they can produce far better results that they could individually. Synergy lets us discover jointly things we are much less likely to discover by ourselves. It is the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. One plus one equals three, or six, or sixty--you name it.
