School Newsletter — April 15th, 2020
Note from the Principal
Hazeldale Staff held a DANCE PARTY on April 10th with the song choices coming from students to firstname.lastname@example.org via the SeeSaw platform Specialists are using to push out their lessons. We had a lot of fun, worked up a bit of a sweat, and hope it brings some laughter to students and you as well! Enjoy!
Thank you for being our partners in this journey to educate our students in this unchartered way with the many varying challenges each family has. We know it is hard. However, working together as partners will bring us closer together as a team working collaboratively for the benefit of your child.
Chromebook Still Needed?
If your child does not have a device at home to access remote learning opportunities, please be sure you have communicated that to your child's teacher. We are awaiting further information on next steps.
If internet access is needed for your household, please see the information at this link.
Urgent Student Items to Be Collected?
When we left school on March 13 we were under the assumption we would be back in two weeks. However, with the directive from the governor we now know that students will not be returning this school year. Plans are being developed for all student items to be collected and distributed later this spring. However, we know that there may be personal items that are of an urgent need for learning, personal health or that a family may be moving out of the area. As a school, we want to help students collect these urgent items. However, we also hope families will understand that it would simply be impossible to get every item to each child in the school at this point.
For purposes of this opportunity, we will be identifying items that are urgent as:
Any medication that is in the health room
Any personal devices and/or technology that support a child’s learning (Note: headphones are not considered urgent).
If a family is moving, all a student’s personal items will be collected
Each school has been given the following direction:
Students, families, and non-BSD employees are not allowed in the schools at any time.
Principals and/or school staff will be the only personnel to access school lockers, cubbies or desks.
Distribution of items will be done by curbside pickup only.
Principals and/or school staff will use nitrile gloves when collecting items from lockers.
Student items will be collected and placed in one plastic bag and labeled with the student’s name.
If there are items that your child needs based on the urgent need criteria above, please email email@example.com with the following information:
Items to be collected:
Identifying feature of the item:
I will be scheduling curbside pickup day(s) based on the responses.
Thank you for your help and understanding with this process.
