Please remember to do the Covid screening at least a half hour
before your child comes to school. It might be helpful to
use an alarm or the Alexa app as a reminder.
Don't forget "Remote Back to School Night" will be on MondaySeptember 21, at 7:00 and again at 7:30.
After completing one full week we are falling into our routine. The students have been working hard in class. During circle time they are learning to say and identfy the months of the year and days of the week. They are also counting and identifying a pattering. We check and report on the weather daily. This week we will be learning about different emotions. We will learn some techniques to calm us if we become upset. Together we will discuss our rules and why we need them. The children will also practice cutting with scissors. We will be focusing on the number 2, the letter Ee, the shape of a triangle and the color blue. Everyone can wear something blue on Wednesday. Also for homework everyday your child should do 20 minutes of exercise. They can walk, run, play on the playground, play hopscotch, do yoga, ride a bike or play sports; anything that keeps them moving.
It may be a good idea to attach an eye glass holder or string to your child's mask so they don't get lost or end up on the ground when we take our mask breaks. Make sure the sting is not too long. If they are too long they end up dragging on the floor when they are sitting down. You may also want to put a spare mask in their backpack.
If you are experiencing trouble with loggin into your child's Chromebook you will have to contact Tech Support.
From the Jackson School website click at the top "For Parents and Students."
Then click on "Remote Learning 2020/2021 scroll down to where it says "Full Remote News And Info" "Need tech support for a Chromebook user or a student Google login issue?" click on it.
That will take you to a form that you will need to fill out and submit to have your issue resolved.
You can keep the chromebooks at home. As of now we won't be using them; I will let you know if and when we need to use them.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org
