A Message from the Principal
I hope all is well with you and your family,
New Assignments for April 6th through the 17th The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has given schools new guidelines on what we can assign our students during the current school shutdown. Starting April 6th your child should receive the latest assignments from their teachers. In addition, teachers can access a remote learning platform called Zoom to conduct live lessons. If your child receives an invitation from their teacher to join a Zoom Meeting, it would look like this: “Teacher Name is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting”. All the information on how to join the meeting will be in the invitation. Your student needs a computer (preferable) or a phone line to join the Zoom session.
Some teachers might be emailing assignments rather than using Zoom. The method teachers use to reach out and teach lessons is up to their discretion. In all cases teachers should be reaching out to all students.
If a teacher is using Zoom, the school has divided the day up so academic classes will not overlap. In addition, Monday, April 6th will start an A week. Freshman and seniors will receive academic work during A week while sophomores and juniors will receive shop and related work. Upperclassmen should note that related work will be done during shop week not during academic weeks as is normal when in attendance at school.
Have your child check their school email account often, it is very important to keep up with all the assignments and all communications from the teachers. We hope to be back at school in May. Do not hesitate to reach out if you need help with any aspect of your education. The first round of assignments will stay on-line for those students that need more time to complete.
Within the COVID-19 listing (CLICK THIS LINK), there are three files. One is from the United States Department of Education that is a fact sheet on addressing the Risk of Covid-19 in Schools. The second PDF is Educational Resources for Students and Families. The third file is on information on being able to access the internet free if you do not have a connection currently.
I hope this will help you out. If there are other updates that come out, I will either post them under the COVID-19 listing and/or make a One Call.
