Greetings Memorial School Community,
This communication contains important information regarding your child's return to school next week that includes:
Please review this information carefully and we very much look forward to seeing many of our students as we return to school next week.
Also, for families of remote learners, Mr. Ambrose provided a statement for the start of synchronous learning at Wednesday night's School Board meeting. I have included a piece of it here:
"Synchronous instruction is completely new to our students as well as to our teachers. We need everyone to understand that school staff members are working through this new model - it will not be perfect and we expect there will be bumps in the road.
Our staff and students need time to adjust to this new model of instruction, especially all of the physical changes to the school day and routines in the building. To help with this adjustment, the first week of synchronous instruction for our remote learners will be handled primarily via independent assignments at the K-6 levels and an “as the teacher is ready” model at the 7-12 level. This will provide staff and students the time and space to adapt to new buildings, having kids in the school buildings and work out the drop off and pick-up routines. Teachers will be checking in with remote learners periodically."
For remote families, your child's teacher(s) will communicate what school will look like to your child next week. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
Students who have borrowed a chromebook and charger from the district should bring it with them for school next week. Your students will be able to bring the borrowed chromebook and charger home with them at the end of next week.
The district will be providing enough chromebooks to Memorial School so that students can keep their borrowed technology at home. This will allow students to have the technology they need should the district need to return to remote learning on short notice. Unfortunately, we won't have everything in place for October 26th, which is why students will need their chromebooks and chargers at school for their first week back.
Welcome Back Video for Parents
Please watch this five minute amateur production from Mrs. Lizier, Mrs. Collins, and myself as we help parents and students understand several aspects of what the return to school will look like next week.
