South Park Update

Greetings, families!


The South Park staff has been busy at work getting ready for the start of the 2020-21 school year. Though it is not the school year we imagined, our excitement and enthusiasm are stronger than ever as we prepare to welcome our students back to school.


More details will be shared next week, but in the meantime, below is some of the information that will be coming your way:


Teacher Assignments - Friday, August 14th

Teacher assignments will be made available in Family Access on Friday, August 14th at 8:00 a.m. Please refrain from making teacher or friend requests. These requests cannot be honored. Our teachers in each grade level will use the same curriculum and follow the same schedule, so if children are assigned to different teachers, they should be able to learn together successfully if you choose to organize a learning group between multiple families.


Meet and Greet Event - Wednesday, August 19th

Please save the date for this special outdoor event for students to meet their teacher in small groups, receive their 1:1 iPad or Chromebook, and pick up their materials bin with all of the items students will need to participate in remote learning. Details about the event's schedule will be shared next week, but we are happy to announce that our first day of school will be devoted to introducing our students to their teachers and ensuring that all students have the tools they need to successfully learn from home.


Remote Learning Schedules

Based on feedback from our families, we were able to create a school-wide remote learning schedule with a common lunch and recess block across our entire school. All children in grades K-5 will break for lunch and recess every day from 11:25-12:20. Detailed schedules will be sent home during the scheduled Meet and Greet.


More soon! Have a great weekend!
