Parents: We have turned off our Parent Portal Access while our school is closed. We have stressed that you should not worry about your child's grades dropping during this time. We will not allow that to happen. Trying to maintain equitable grading in an un-equitable environment is impossible. Therefore, we wanted to remove all stress from parents as well as teachers. If you have any questions about your child's work, or progress, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher or principal through email. Work through your child's school assignments in whatever manner is most comfortable for you and your family. Your child's grade will reflect whatever your child's average was prior to our school closing up to the point that we return. As always, stay healthy and safe during this troubling time. Don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions or concerns. Very Truly Yours - Dr. Greg Bower - Superintendent - firstname.lastname@example.org
Parents: Many of you are scheduled to pickup your child’s work at school tomorrow. With the new Stay at Home order, we realize that you may have some questions for us. Judge Newsom has stated that picking up your child’s work from school is acceptable as long as you stay in your vehicles to do so. Also, we are planning on continuation of our student meal deliveries to those who are in need. They will continue as they have been. Tomorrow, we will also deliver instructional material to those who can’t make it to school. In our effort to do our part and further reduce our interactions, though, next Thursday will be our last work delivery. We will make sure that we send material home for the remainder of the year. In the event that we are able to come back before then, our teachers will review and reteach as much information as possible. Finally, If you are able to scan your child’s finished work back to your teacher, try to do so. If not, just have your child keep it until he or she sees their teacher again. We thank you for all that you do for our school, and we want you to know we are here for you in this difficult time. Students: We miss you, and we love you. See you soon!
