Bi Weekly Parent Memo


 Week of 10/02/2020

Bracker Community! 

I hope this newsletter finds you and your family well and in good spirits. Congratulations! We made it to the end of the quarter! As stated before, we did it together! 

As you know, at the end of every quarter, we have parent teacher conferences. This year these conferences will be held either in Google classrooms or over the phone. Please make sure you have a scheduled time with your child’s teacher.

Report cards, this quarter, will be distributed through curbside. This means instead of mailing, we ask that you pick them up. As you remain in your car, we will safely hand you your child’s report card, along with other important information. Please see “Important Dates” below for your date to pick up your child’s report card.  This is also the time to ask to sign the waiver if you are choosing the hybrid model. Please help us my making sure that you sign the waiver on your child’s report card pick up day. 

Thank you, Bracker Community, for your patience with us as we transitioned to our Specials classes this past month. I am hoping that your child is enjoying this added feature.  

Thank you all for completing the return to school survey. Your selections has been recorded. If we were unable to hear from you either through our phone calls, emails, or messages, we assumed it was because you want your child to remain working online. Therefore, there is no need to contact us unless you need to make a different selection. Thank you all for your continued support. 

For those choosing the hybrid model, here are a couple reminders of protocols and guidelines:

  1. Please have your child stay at home if they are not feeling well

  2. A waiver needs to be signed BEFORE your child can be on campus. 

  3. Laptops will be required for our in person program. Please bring with your child on your designated school days. 

  4. Water bottles will be allowed for drinking and refilling. 

  5. Facial masks will be required all day with the exception of when you are eating and designated breaks.

  6. Social distancing guidelines will be implemented. The campus will be marked to assist you with this.

  7.  You will have your temperature checked when you come onto campus.  Temperature checkpoints will be in place at the drop off and bus location. Everyone will be required to have his or her temperature taken.

  8. Breakfast will be served in the classroom and lunch in the cafeteria while maintaining social distancing with our limited students on campus (A and B groups). 

  9. Dress code rules still apply on campus.

  10. You are required to attend the days that you are assigned either A or B group. If you do not attend in person on your assigned school day, you will be considered absent. 

  11. I am looking forward to having you back on campus, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Till we are able to be together again safely, take care of yourself and each other.

Comunidad Bracker! Espero que este boletín los encuentre a usted y a su familia bien y de buen humor.¡Acabamos de completar la mitad del primer trimestre de clases! Nuevamente, me gustaría agradecerles a: padres, estudiantes, abuelos, tías, tíos, niñeras, amigos de la familia, maestros y personal de Bracker por hacer de este un comienzo de año exitoso en general. Sé que no ha sido fácil, ¡pero lo logramos juntos!

Anuncios / Recordatorios:

1.     Si su hijo está ausente o ingresa tarde a las clases "en vivo", comuníquese con la oficina principal de la escuela al 520.377.2886 . Esto ayudará a eliminar las llamadas a su hogar.

2.     Este mes, la asistencia es especialmente importante ya que estamos completando las pruebas de evaluación. Estas son pruebas de referencia que se dan al principio, a la mitad y al final de cada año escolar para mostrar el crecimiento. Esta información también nos ayuda a decidir si su hijo califica para tutoría y / o grupos de intervención. Es importante que su hijo complete estas pruebas de forma independiente. Gracias de antemano por su apoyo.

3.     En este momento, no hay "salidas tempranas" programadas a nivel de escuela primaria. Se espera que los estudiantes asistan a la escuela cinco días a la semana, de 8: 30a-2: 45p. 

4.     ¡Padres! De 2: 30-2: 45, las clases "en vivo" concluyen con un "Resumen". Aquí es donde los maestros revisan con los estudiantes la tarea, el trabajo de clase y responden preguntas. Es importante que su hijo asista a esto porque todavía es parte de su día escolar.

5.     La fecha de inicio de nuestras clases “Especiales” será el 21 de septiembre S t . Adjunto encontrará el horario de nuestras clases “Especiales”. Su estudiante recibirá instrucciones paso a paso sobre cómo iniciar sesión en estas clases una vez que nos acerquemos a nuestra hora de inicio.

6.     Su hijo comenzará a "ver" estas clases en sus Google Classroom Meets, continúe ignorando por ahora, ya que todavía estamos configurando. Se adjunta el horario de clases especiales.

Fechas importantes:

8 al 18 de septiembre: Pruebas Dibels / Galileo (todos los estudiantes)

11 de septiembre: informes de progreso enviados a casa

21 de septiembre: Comienzan las clases especiales

28 de septiembre: Comienzan las intervenciones

Hasta que podamos estar juntos de nuevo de manera segura, cuídense a sí mismos y a los demás.

Sra. Vigilant, Directora
