Continuation of Learning Plans - Our priority remains maintaining and strengthening relationships with our students and families.  Now more than ever it will be important to keep our students engaged in the opportunities that our teachers are providing for them. We recognize that school closure has resulted in added stress for all of us and we do not want to add any additional stress to our families during this time. Our parents should never feel that they must replace their children’s teachers or replicate a normal school day at home during this school closure. These are unprecedented times.

Zoom - We want to recognize the recent concerns that have arisen in regards to Zoom and the potential for uninvited guests to join the Zoom meetings with your child and their teacher. While Zoom has been working diligently on their end to address these security concerns by adding key features. Our teachers will now be utilizing enhanced features with their sessions, such as a password to enter the sessions, a virtual waiting room to ensure anyone who joins the meeting is an invited user, and we have disabled the ability for participants to share their screens or send files to other members of the group. We are confident these steps will ensure that our Zoom meetings remain safe for all of our participants.

Support - In these difficult times, it is so important to connect with others either by phone or electronically.  Make it a priority to connect with others each day. We have enjoyed seeing so many pictures and videos. However, we also know many are struggling, or will struggle in the future, with this new normal.  Please reach out and let your child’s teacher or principal know if you or your children need support. We will make sure school counselors, social workers, nurses, and others will make contact with you..
