Message from the Principal
Phone Out: April 1, 2020
Students should have been contacted this week by each of their teachers through the school system student email accounts. It is important that each student checks and replies back to each of their teachers.
Students who do not have internet access or the ability to connect to the Edgenuity platform need to call the school at 301-863-4001 to request printed materials.
Please wait on the line for the recording and leave a message. Parents making a request will be contacted but more than likely not until after spring break, which is April 14. Please be patient as this process will take some time especially working from home.
Please do not call the school if you have already requested printed materials from your teachers or your administrators. If you have email access but do not have the ability to use the Edgenunity platform, please email your child’s administrator to request printed materials.
A plan to distribute printed materials will be available following spring break.
Phone Out:March 31, 2020
Students: in order to help identify who has internet access and who does not, I need students with access to check their school email account by the end of the school day tomorrow. You should receive an email from each of your teachers with information about their particular class and possible third marking period recovery options if needed. Teachers are tracking who is responding so that we can develop a list of students who may need assistance. Please check your school emails and respond back to your teacher.
Edgenuity should be open to students within the next day or so. Students can begin taking their classes however teachers will not begin monitoring student progress or be available to offer assistance until April 14.
Lastly, those students who need printed material in lieu of not having internet access, more information will be available in the coming days.
Phone out: March 29, 2020
As we move forward with this school year as best as we can, please keep the following in mind:
-teachers come back to work remotely this week to receive professional development on the online platform Edgenuity.
-Classes for students will start on April 14. Students may be able to access Edgenuity as early as this week however teachers will not officially begin to monitor student progress until April 14.
-The main form of communication between teachers and students will be through the school system’s email account. Every student should check for an email from their teacher later this week. We need students to respond to their teachers so that we can start to gain an insight into who has access to the internet and who does not. Plans will be made for those students who do not have access and how best to communicate this concern. Please refrain from calling the school until we have a system in place to track, monitor, and record student information who may need assistance.
I appreciate your patience and understanding during this most unusual time. We will continue to work together to do what is best for our students and staff moving forward together. I will make sure to update you as further information becomes available. Take care, have a good evening and remember...
