Message from the Principal

Good Afternoon Findley Families,

It was so nice to see some of you, from a distance, today at Chromebook Distribution, round 1. Thank you too, for your patience and understanding during these most challenging times. We really appreciate it. If you would still like to checkout a Chromebook for your student, the link to request one is below; this link will close tomorrow, Saturday April 4, at 5 PM.

By now, you should have heard from your child’s teacher regarding Remote Learning Phase 2, which kicks off next week. Most learning opportunities are designed to be asynchronous, which means they can be done at times that are convenient for families. Other times, learning opportunities will be synchronous, allowing for real-time interactions between teachers and their students. All learning, at this point, is highly encouraged, but not required. We understand that everyone is living in different circumstances and that those circumstances may not be ideal to manage remote learning. Your health and well-being should be the priority.

Remote Learning Plan Phase 2 asks teachers to provide lessons M-Th, via SeeSaw or Google Classroom. In addition to classroom teachers, PE and Music specialists will also be pushing out lessons via SeeSaw. Each grade will have two music and two PE lessons per week. Fridays will be a combination of technology and STEM challenges, Social Emotional Learning opportunities and messages from me, Dr. Marsh via SeeSaw. Be sure to have your students check their SeeSaw account daily for updates.

One last thing, for now, your child’s teacher and our website are both great resources for you should you need anything or have questions. Additionally, you are always welcome to reach out directly to me, should the need arise. Next week, please expect more information on Phase 3, Distance Learning.

Take good care everyone!
