Hello Peabody Family:
Well, we only have two more weeks before we see our students’ smiling faces. We are so excited to see them. We are going to have an Awesome school year!!!
I am attaching some very important information about Parent Trainings for Microsoft Teams that SCS is providing. This training will help parents better support their child on Microsoft Teams for learning this school year.
I have also attached a REVISED Parent Covid Communication Flyer that includes:
- Virtual Open House Dates/Times
Resource Pick-up In-person Dates/Times (Please bring your child and come on your designated day/time to meet your child’s teacher. If you do not come at your designated date/time, you may not be able to meet your child’s teacher)
- Resource Pick-up Day has been POSTPONED. Due to the Covid epidemic, a large portion of the supplies and materials have not arrived at many SCS schools. We will announce a new Resource Pick-up schedule when the materials arrive.
- Dress Code Expectations
- Sample Schedule
There is so much more information outlined in the attached Parent Covid Communication Flyer. Please read its entirety.
Continue to check SCS District website www.scsk12.org to pick-up students’ computer devices. Please remember that you DO NOT pick up these devices from Peabody Elementary School. The District will list a location/time/date on their website for pick-up.
We want to ensure the safety of everyone. Therefore, please come at your designated time for Resource Pick-up Day to avoid overcrowding. Please wear a mask and follow the guidelines for social distancing. Enter through the main door in front of the school. There will be a check in table in the foyer and we will direct you to your classrooms from the check out table.
The only make-up time for parents to pick up resources is Tuesday, August 25th form 5:00 P.M.-6:30 P.M. Again your child may not be able to meet their teacher if this is not your designated day.
School starts August 31st. Students will have a full day of synchronous/asynchronous learning from 8:15-3:00 daily. Students are expected to start signing into class virtually from 8:00 A.M.-8:10 A.M. to check their equipment/sound. In order to receive a participation grade each day, students are expected to stay on the entire time from 8:15 A.M.-3:00 P.M.; except for Breaks, Lunch, and Recess. All lessons will be LIVE; including Support classes.
There will be Office Hours for parents and/or students to schedule appointments to talk with the teacher from 3:00 P.M.-3:30 P.M. Monday-Thursday.
We are excited to serve our families this school year and look forward to an AMAZING year! Remember, we are Eagles and Peabody Strong!
Proud Principal of Peabody Elementary!!!
