    Hello! My name is Mrs. Smith and I will be your child's second grade teacher this year!  Second grade is going to be an exciting year for both you and your child!  During the pandemic, things will be different....but we will be creating a new normal and making new kind of fun memories! Our focus will be on getting to know each other and all of the new routines that come with the new school year.  
    I will use this page as a form of communication until our Google Classroom is up and running and everyone is logged on.  I'm looking forward to working with your children this year.  Please reach out if you need anything.   dlsmith@jacksonsd.org

    The success of advancing to this stage in our reopening process requires all of us to do our part. The safety of our students and staff must come first and we must ALL remain vigilant in our health and safety protocols.

    • Keep your children home if they are sick;
    • Keep your children home if anyone in your household has tested positive OR is experiencing COVID-compatible symptoms;
    • Keep your children home if anyone in your household is awaiting a test result for COVID;
    • Remember to truthfully fill out your Daily COVID Health Screening Form for your child each day.
    • Remember to contact your school nurse if anyone in your house has been exposed to COVID, has COVID-compatible symptoms, or is being tested. 


    • Students will be expected to attend every day, and to not flip between in-person instruction and synchronous instruction.

    • The only exception would be for in-person students who are ill or who should stay home due to quarantine. 

    • If a child is ill and able to participate, please notify your child’s teacher that your child will be learning synchronously from home, temporarily.



    At the end of each school day, students will pick up a grab and go bag, which will contain lunch for that day as well as a breakfast for the following morning.

    • Please remind students that they MAY NOT eat their grab-and-go lunch on the bus.

    You can apply online and find out immediately if you qualify!


    Class Page: Our class page will be updated daily with any important information that is happening in our classroom and announcements that pertain to our class, school, and community. This is one form of communication that is used throughout the year. This website can also be used to access digital resources, tools and remote learning expectations.

    Google Classroom: Our google classroom is where assignments and lessons will be posted throughout the year and where students will submit their assignments.

    Many companies have kindly offered free subscriptions to their programs and one of them is EPIC, which is an online library that provides us access to over 35,000 eBooks, Learning Videos, Quizzes, and more for K-5 students. This is awesome for our students to provide access to new books on their grade level (since I'm sure we're already in need of some new books to read)!
