Good Evening Fancher Creek Families,
It has been one week since our face-to-face classes have been
suspended. None of us has ever experienced a prolonged school closure
before and are doing our best to navigate this situation. We appreciate
your patience, understanding, and support as we adjust from face-to-face
instruction to on-line instruction. We ask that you stay in touch with us
along the way by checking our ClassDojo, Facebook page, email, text messages, and
Remind for updated information. We will be making every effort to
maintain open communication by responding to your questions and sharing
information daily. Please read the information below and check the
attachments for the most up-to-date information about student learning for the
next two weeks.
We have created a sample of a daily schedule for school days. Part of our
success at school is a consistent schedule. We encourage parents and
caregivers to establish a consistent schedule that alternates academic tasks
and physical activity. Physical activity is critical for students, so
don't hesitate to take a break to take a walk, ride bikes, or play a game in
the backyard. The attachment "Sample Daily
Schedule for Families" will help you create your own schedule that works
for your family.
Paper-Pencil Instruction... The attached letter (Daily Lesson Plans for FC Families) to
parents is a 2-page document that contains links to daily lesson plans for each
grade level starting on Monday, March 23rd and ending on Friday, April
3rd. It is important to access this document each day for daily
assignments. Your child's teacher will also be sending messages reviewing
the day's tasks to help everyone stay on track to complete their instruction by April 3rd.
Your child's teachers have planned tasks and assignments using platforms
students use frequently. Students log in to their computers and Clever
every school day to access i-Ready, Google Classroom, Benchmark, Illuminate,
and other apps. They should be able to navigate the on-line components,
but we have attached directions for
parents in the event you need support. These directions
and teacher support are here to assist you.
Our teachers are available by email and ClassDojo/Remind Monday-Friday from
8:00 AM to 3:00 PM to support students and parents. Our administration
and office team are available during the same hours. To contact
administration or office staff, please call 327-6700 to leave a message or
email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond as quickly as we can to support you.
Alongside You... You are not alone! We
are in unprecedented times, but one thing remains the same... We are a team and
we will support you as you implement a structured school day at home.
Stay in touch with us and let us know when you need help. Our staff is
prepared to help in any way we can.
We will be communicating frequently to check in on our families and hope to
hear from you over the next couple of weeks. Just breathe, remind your
children to try their best, and reach out when you need support!
With Falcon Pride,
Fancher Creek Educational Team
