Remote Learning Update

Hello Kindergarten Families!

Sadly, our Mayor and our Chancellor have made the decision to continue academic instruction through Remote Learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. We will not report to the school building during this time. All instruction will take place online.

We appreciate all of your efforts as we navigate through remote learning together. The Kindergarten Team will continue to use Seesaw as the platform in which remote learning will take place. It is imperative your child be logging on and completing assignments each day. This allows teachers to know that the children are actively engaging in the learning process.  If anybody is having issues with Seesaw, please contact your child's teacher directly. If your child is unable to attend remote learning for the day, please contact your child’s teacher immediately

We understand and appreciate that these unprecedented changes will come with challenges. The Kindergarten Team would like to assure all parents and students that we are here for you in the wake of these challenges. We have updated our Kindergarten Page to reflect the current changes. In the Quick Links section, you will find links to any resources that you might need. All usernames and passwords can be obtained by contacting your child's teacher directly. 

During this transition, we understand the importance of addressing the emotional and social needs of our students. We have embedded Brain Breaks, Go Noodle movement activities, and various Social Emotional activities within the weekly remote learning schedules. Please continue to talk to your children about the mood meter, and encourage them to talk about how they are feeling. If you would like additional resources to help support your children during this time, please let us know!

If any child needs a device, please follow the steps on the School's Home Page to request one. The Department of Education is currently loaning iPads to families in need of technology. 

Please know that we miss all of you very much and hope you are all staying safe. We greatly appreciate your support in guiding your child's learning at home. We are so proud of all of our students and wish we could be together as we approach the end of kindergarten. 

With any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher via email or Class Dojo. Phone conversations can also be arranged as needed. 

Thank you,

Kindergarten Team
