Welcome back Third Graders!
I am so excited to be your teacher this year with Mrs. Gruosso (our 5th year together!)
Please be sure to check both of our teacher pages for updates.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions
We will be using Google Classroom for classroom updates and homework assignments. Please click on the link below to access our classroom.
Our goal is to keep everyone healthy this year so we can successfully learn in school!
Parents are required to complete this short check each morning via the Genesis Parent Portal and report their child’s information at least 30 minutes prior to the school reporting time for school.
**If the answer to any of these is YES, the parent must not send their child to school**
SECTION 1: Symptoms
If your child has any of the following symptoms, that indicates a possible illness that may decrease the student’s ability to learn and also put them at risk for spreading illness to others. Please check your child for these symptoms:
*Temperature 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher when taken by mouth
*New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (for students with chronic allergic/ asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline)
*Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
*New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever
If possible, send your child to school with a personal hand sanitizer for their desk to limit gatherings around the classroom hand sanitizer.
Please send your child to school with a water bottle from home.
All students were loaned a chrome book. Chrome books will be traveling both to school and home with the students daily. Please always make sure you charge your chromebook overnight in case it is needed during in school activities.
**Please send your child to school with his/her own headphones for safety precautions**
Please see some general precautions in regards to chrome books below:
-No food or drink is allowed next to your Chromebook. Chromebooks are not permitted in the cafeteria.
-Cords, cables, and removable storage devices must be inserted carefully.
-Students should never carry their Chromebook while the screen is open.
-Chromebooks should not be open or used while walking through the halls.
-It is suggested that you purchase a protective case.
-Do not expose your Chromebook to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Extreme heat or cold may cause damage to the laptop.Always bring your laptop to room temperature prior to turning it on.
Chrome Book Care:
-Do not lean on top of the Chromebook.
-Do not place anything near the Chromebook that could put pressure on the screen.
-Do not poke the screen.
-Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, notebooks).
-Clean the screen with a soft, dry anti-static, or micro-fiber cloth. Do not use window cleaner or any type of liquid or water on the Chromebook. You can also purchase individually packaged pre-moistened eyeglass lens cleaning tissues to clean the screen. These are very convenient and relatively inexpensive.
-Chromebooks include serial numbers and barcode stickers that must remain on the device. These stickers are important for inventory and insurance purposes.
-Do not place any additional stickers anywhere on the Chromebook.
-Do not write or mark the device for any reason!
-Any student choosing to break these rules could be subject to forfeiting their Chromebook privileges.
