Class Assignments are Finally ready!
We're supposed to start on Monday and I don't know what to do! (In-Person Learners)
- a small assignment that students should plan to complete on Monday or Tuesday when they are not at school for in-person orientation.
- the link to the live Google Meet or Zoom Meet for Wednesday morning
- A basic schedule for the following 2 weeks of remote learning
Once students come to Stott for orientation, teachers will make sure that they know how to log-in, what apps to use, and how to access everything that they need. The first couple of weeks will not be content heavy. Teachers will be focusing on helping students build a classroom community, learning tech tools, and beginning of the year reading and math skills. You can expect students to be required to log-in 2-3 times per day, with small assignments in between.
We're supposed to start on Monday and I don't know what to do! (Remote Learners)
Just like in-person students, teachers will be working to build community and practice tech tools for the first several days. They will send you an outline of a schedule for the first couple of weeks but plan for it to build up to match the schedule below.
Help! My Child Doesn't Know How to Log-In to Their Device
Students in 3rd-5th Grade log in with their student id# but set their own password, unless they are a new student, in which case the password is stott123. If they can't remember their password, we will be able to reset it for them when they come in for orientation.
August 20, 3-5 pm: Drive-through device pick-up for Kindergarten students and any students who are new to Stott this year. Please also plan to attend if your student is in 3rd grade or 5th grade and you missed the exchange on August 13. If you turned in your device in the spring because you weren't planning to attend Stott and now are returning and need a device, please call the school so we can make sure we have a device ready for you.
This schedule is for all students, regardless of whether they are choosing 100% remote or 100% in-person. Students who have chosen the 100% remote option, will also receive some school materials such as math books and art sketchbooks.

If families carpool, we will work with you to choose one arrival time for entry. We are trying to minimize the number of students entering the building at one time.

Students may not wait after school for friends. They need to plan a common meeting space to meet parents or siblings in order to quickly leave campus. Students will not be allowed back inside the building after dismissal to pick-up a preschool sibling or get anything that was forgotten.
Beep and Greet!
On August 21 at 3:00 pm, Stott teachers will line the driveway with their name on a sign. Please drive through the bus loop to beep and wave to your favorite teachers and see if you can spot this year's teacher. All students are invited, whether you have chosen remote learning or in-person learning. See the map below for the route. For those of you with us in the spring, it is the same flow of traffic.
