Distance Learning for Cancelled Days IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Feb. 2021

Kindergarten Snow/Fog Day Cancellation Information

Future school cancellation days will now be Remote Learning days the remainder of this school year. To help alleviate parent concerns over helping children during school hours and simultaneously adhering to your own work schedules, Kindergarten will be implementing a Choice Board. This is different from our Remote Learning plan that was sent at the beginning of the school year, because that plan was intended for LONG TERM learning.

CHOICE BOARD - Please find the Choice Board for School Cancellations in the back of your child’s folder in PINK. There are also papers children can use for completing choice board work. This should be left in the folder so that it is available at all times. Students will choose one activity from each column for each missed day of school. Guardians will need to initial the box for the corresponding activities chosen and submit any paper/pencil work that was completed. Submit completed work after the missed school days.

CHROMEBOOKS - Teachers will try to send Chromebooks home on nights where inclement weather is forecasted; however, this may not always be the case. There are multiple squares on the Choice Board that allows for activities to be completed without technology. Please remember that Chromebooks are to be used for educational purposes. Students should not be using them to play non-academic games, search the internet or watch YouTube. It is MANDATORY for students to return the Chromebooks with a good charge to school the next school day, as we use them in class daily.

GOOGLE MEET - Kindergarten teachers will be available on a Google Meet at 10 and 12 and as needed from 1-3 on cancellation days to assist with the choice board. Attendance is NOT required,  but encouraged! Teachers will choose an activity from the Choice Board for each subject and work with the kids so that you don't have to. Teachers may also be reached from 10-3 on cancellation days via email or Remind messaging.

MAKE-UP DAYS - We will be IN SESSION AT SCHOOL on April 5th for  a make-up day from previously missed days. Again, these days will NOT be remote, we will be in school.

GYM, MUSIC, ART - Please check the Google Classrooms for these classes to complete the make-up work.

If you have any questions about our Snow/Fog Day Cancellation plan, please contact us. It is our goal to make this as simple on our families as possible, while still allowing your child to gain educational experiences on these days. Thanks for your continued support!
