Weekly Update - April 1 - April 8
Distance Learning starts on Monday, April 6!! I am so excited to direct you to the EPS Learning Dashboard where teachers have created lessons based on the most important standards for the 4th quarter for every core subject area. The lessons are specifically designed for students to be able to learn independently. Your child's teachers will also be reaching out to your student to support them in learning this new material throughout the week. EPS will be adding lessons for electives soon!
Please remember that no grades will be taken during the Distance Learning window from April 6 - May 13. I know that our students' natural inclination may be to not complete the work that is provided via the Dashboard since it's not being graded. I cannot, however, encourage them enough to complete the assignments. This is the very best kind of learning - learning for the most altruistic purpose - to gain new knowledge and skills! We do not want ANY student to fall behind during this time.
If we can be of any help to you, for any reason at all, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Your children mean the world to us, and we miss them more than we can express!
Stay safe and healthy!
Laura L. McGee, M.Ed.
Is Your Student's Chromebook or Charger Damaged?
EPS computer technicians will be available to swap out broken Chromebooks and/or chargers on Thursday, April 2, from 9 am-1 pm, at 1216 S. Rankin (between Central Middle School and the YMCA). If your student's Chromebook or charger requires repair, staff will meet you in the parking lot and simply swap out your Chromebook or charger for a replacement. Please bring your student's EPS badge, if possible. Your student will keep this replacement device until the end of the year. Standard fines/STPP coverage will apply. Beginning the week of Monday, April 6, staff will be available one or two days per week for Chromebook repairs. More information will be forthcoming when an exact schedule has been determined.
