Dear Students, Parent(s)/Guardian(s):
I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2020-2021 school year. I know we are starting school under unusual circumstances and therefore, it is going to be very important that we all stay informed and organized this year. Unlike in the past, most of your work will be done online through Summit and Google Classroom and although we will not be in the building, you will still need some school supplies (see list below).
We will continue using the Summit Platform as a means of assigning lessons, Focus Areas, projects and homework for you to complete. Also this year, CPS is requiring that all schools utilize Google Suite tools to facilitate remote learning. I urge you to opt-in to receive daily or weekly Guardian Summaries from Google Classroom. These summaries will help you keep track of completed, missing and upcoming assignments; announcements; and questions recently posted by teachers. If your child/children are having difficulty, find out how to help them and most importantly celebrate their accomplishments throughout the year.
This past spring, CPS did not require students to log in or report attendance. This year, students are required to log into Google Meets by 8:15 AM and actively engage in remote learning in order for attendance to be recorded. Accordingly, I will report attendance on a daily basis.
To start the school year, our number one priority will be to establish a consistent means of communication with families. Please complete this form to ensure that all avenues of communication are up to date and working. I encourage all parents/guardians to visit our school’s website and visit the new, parents page on CPS.edu.
We will return to our regular grading system during remote learning this year, which means standard letter grades will be issued based on mastery of content.
More information about Remote Learning will be coming in the next few days, I’m sure. I look forward to working with all of you this school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know through email or Google Classroom.
