Jesse D. Scott News

October 30, 2020

Dear Families,

We have made it through October! The weather is changing and daylight savings is coming to a close. It is time to set back our clocks an hour before going to bed on October 31, 2020. Time is often a struggle for students during distance learning. You can help your child be on time to class by keeping a clock or timer close by so they know when to log on. Many of our students attempt to log into their classes early in the morning and are not permitted access. This is a safety measure teachers added to the Google Meet link to prevent students from hanging out unsupervised. If this occurs, be patient. The teacher will be on shortly. Try again in a couple of minutes. When the teacher logs in, students will receive access.


This school year has brought its challenges and celebrations as we learn to navigate our way through distance learning. We appreciate the feedback we have received. It has helped us make the necessary adjustments to help our staff and students be successful in this virtual environment. As issues arise, we will strive to do our best to improve our practices. Thank you for your continued support and patience.


Sincerely,

Deborah Faltinosky

Chronic Absenteeism

Chronic Absenteeism is when a student misses ten percent or more of their enrolled attendance. It is important for students to be present so they acquire the education and information provided by their teacher. The red shows the percentage of students chronically absent, the yellow is for students who are approaching that level and the green are those students who are not in danger.
