Switching to Hybrid on Monday October 26
Hello Parents and Guardians-
On Monday October 26, some of the students will be welcomed back to Shenandoah for the first time since March. I am so excited to have students back in the classroom.
These are items I am asking for students to have when returning on Monday:
- Fully charged iPad ready to go for Monday
- Esperanza Rising novel
- Kleenex box or Kleenex packet to keep at desk
- Earphones to keep at school or travel with
- Water bottles
I understand not all items will be achievable, but would appreciate your help in making sure some of this list is sent on Monday October 26.
Please note the bathroom schedule will look a little different. Students will not just be able to go whenever they please. We will have scheduled breaks. I will do my best to get to them to the bathroom room once in the morning, at lunch, and once in the afternoon. Please have your student go before they come to school. We have such a short day that we need to focus on learning.
The first week back will be a bit of challenge as we navigate teaching in person and virtually. Be patient. We will work through the kinks. I will not let your students down. My goal is to maintain rigorous teaching no matter where the student is.
I have disinfected my room to the max- desks wiped down, furniture is socially distanced, soft items removed to limit spreading of virus, and cleaned so much more! I have some masks, disinfecting wipes, and gloves. Each day we will wipe down our area and materials to make sure we are staying as safe as possible. If your child is not feeling well, please keep them home. We are starting cold and flu season; let’s take care of each other and ourselves.
I appreciate all that you have done during this virtual learning experience. I also want to thank you for sending your students back to school. I cannot wait to see them on Monday October 26.
Sending Love and Thanks,
