Mr. Corey Shepherd
Dear Families and Students,
The 2020-21 school year will be one for the record books. We will look back and remember it as the year where we deployed technology devices to students in greater numbers than ever before; a year where students, families, and teachers worked together through the challenges of distance learning; and the year where we took unprecedented safety precautions to keep our community safe, especially those most vulnerable among us.
Fifth graders will receive laptops this year that will be taken home in order to complete distance learning activities on school days that they will not be in attendance in the building. They will be responsible for the safekeeping and safe and appropriate use of this device at all times. It will be our most important school supply this year. Additionally, your student will need a quiet place and time to work on assignments to give their best effort. I am available to answer questions about the use of these devices and provide guidance on setting conditions and expectations for at-home learning times.
As more definite information comes my way, I will do my best to communicate it to you in a variety of ways so that we may all be working within the best and most current guidelines. Together, we will overcome setbacks, and in doing so collaboratively, we will be setting an amazing example for our learners.
Please feel free to email me at the email address listed on this page if you have any questions or concerns. Once I have a class roster, I will begin reaching out to get families connected on the Class Dojo app which contains a great messaging platform as well as other features that will help us monitor your learner's progress.
