Welcome Upper Unit Parents!
We pray this letter finds everyone healthy, relaxed and hopefully safe at home. It is hard to comprehend that we will be apart from our students until April 6th. Covid-19 might keep us away from our classes and our students, but it will not keep us away from working extra hours to bring a “top of the line” Distance Learning program to your child. Nothing will stop us from giving your child the most meaningful education possible during this time apart.
We, the Upper Unit Teachers, have spent the last five days working together to create and organize DL lessons for your middle school child that are flexible enough to accommodate every at home situation. In this packet, you will find our new DL policies and procedures from daily expectations, grading, communication and even a list of online resources for both you and your child.
We, the Upper Unit teachers, pledge to work diligently with our students and parents to navigate through any challenges we may encounter.
You will also find in this packet, lesson plans for your child for the next two weeks. This includes a ZOOM-Live Chart that has times for live on-line classes which will also be recorded and uploaded to Google Classroom. All Upper Unit teachers have “live” class times and there is even a “live” math tutoring time everyday and “live” class readings for their ELAR class.
The packet is lengthy but please do not feel overwhelmed with it. All assignments will be provided to the students via their Google Classroom or Discovery Education. They have been using this platform since the beginning of the year, and we are confident they will take to Distance Learning with little to no problems.
As teachers, we ask that you give us any feedback, positive and/or constructive, as to how Distance Learning is working for your child at home. We realize that every family has different situations and we want to assist both you and your child with learning in this format.
Remember, these few things….email us with questions, cherish this unique time with your child, and stay safe and secure at home so we can beat this COVID-19 and get back to school as soon as possible. We miss all of you and our children!!!
Please give them hugs from all of us…
