Important Update – School Closed for 2 Weeks

Good morning!

I am writing to share with you the Department of Teaching and Learning’s plan for Distance Learning for the next two weeks. Packets will come home today with information regarding these plans and how students are to continue learning while school is out. If your child was not at school today, please email me directly to make plans to get the packet. I am available today and Monday for the packet to be picked up.

The front of the packet is a letter from HCPS regarding what students should be doing during these next two weeks and how they can complete activities to help them learn! The next few pages of the packet are tips for families to continue literacy development at home. There are several assignments throughout the packet that students will review with me today and will have directions for completion. Please make sure the packets are getting completed as these are participation grades (as requested by the County).

There is a yellow piece of paper in the packet that gives information on how to access Clever for students. Clever is our menu of digital learning options that students use in the classroom every day. I will communicate with students through Schoology so they may still have contact with me or be able to ask questions if needed. Clever works on any smartphone, tablet, or computer browser. Here is the Clever Link.

The next few items in the packet are information to login to your child’s Google account and Clever. The blue card has their Google login and the pink card has their MobyMax login.

We are packing a Ziploc bag with supplies students may need over the course of the next two weeks. We will include journals (to complete work in), pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue sticks. The library is also lending 5 books per students and I will be lending 5 books from my personal library as well! If students need help from me or extra reading materials, please email me directly! I am open to video chat during normal school hours if needed!

Please let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do to help make this transition easier.

Have a great weekend!
