Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for your patience as we begin experiencing the fallout from the COVID 19 – Coronavirus. Our prayers are with those around the world and in our community affected by it.
Although you have all received the usernames and passwords for your children in grades K – 5, (Junior High already has theirs), distance learning will not begin until March 17th. The teachers and I will be meeting on Monday, March 16th to iron out any difficulties with the distance learning and to begin planning long term. At that time the school building will be open. If your child was absent this week, and you need to pick up their books and work, you may come to the school building between 8:00 am and 12:00 pm on Monday to pick it up.
In the meantime, you can attempt to log your child into those sites. iReady can be downloaded as an app into a tablet, or your can log in through login.iready.com. Please remember that the iReady Reading is 45 minutes and that Math is also 45 minutes. These can be done once a week each. If your child does not achieve a passing grade the program will give them two attempts. If they do not succeed twice, that module closes down. He or she can move onto the next one. If you experience any problems with passwords or have any questions, please contact me. Google Classroom can be accessed by having your child log into Gmail. Google classroom can be reached by clicking on the “waffle: or “cube in the upper right hand corner of the site. The Google Classroom icon is yellow and green with the word classroom underneath.
Tablets, phones laptop and Chromebooks can be used to access these platforms. If for any reason you feel that your device is not adequate, we can distribute a loaner to a family who needs it. Please call Mrs. Nittolo tomorrow to let her know to so that we can make one available to you before 1:00 pm.
