Directions for Pick-Up
The following methods of communication will begin Sunday night (March 22) at 5:00pm.
I do ask that during this home-bound learning time, when stresses are high and frustrations are bound to happen, you refrain from negative talk about any teachers, class work (or school in general) in person or on social media sites. I can assure you, our teachers are working hard (over their Spring Break) to prepare for this, but teaching in a classroom and teaching “online” are two completely different things. Our teachers are comfortable creating hands-on, engaging lessons in the classroom, and are now trying to figure out how to create those virtually. They are also keeping in mind that parents who are at home will most likely be working and unable to sit at the table helping children with work. Therefore, they are trying to balance keeping students learning and moving forward, without overloading parents and creating any more stress than they already have.
If your child is struggling with something, the teacher will give you ways you can reach out to him/her throughout the day. You can also reach out to me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do what I can to help. We are all in this together and will do what we can to make this work. We ask that you remain positive, understanding, and join us in our efforts to keep students’ minds active by practicing the skills they are used to doing every day in the classroom.
Remember, our children are watching us during this stressful time. They are learning how to respond to challenges by observing how the adults in their lives respond. Let’s teach them to respond with a level head, reason, and compassion for those less fortunate. In the end, if your family is safe and healthy, that’s all that really matters.
