 Hello Field Families & Students
3/19/2020  
Hello Parents and Students!!

What a week it has been. First and foremost I want all students and parents to know they can ask me questions or bring concerns to my attention. Your child will have questions so do not hesitate to e-mail me! Also, regarding your child's IEP... Mrs Longfellow sent an e-mail today about what to expect. (I will be calling parents individually in the coming days as well)

As you know, we are preparing an online format of learning for the students at Field (possibly until the end of the school year). There will be a lot of new tools and ways to interact with teacher to students, students to teacher and student to student. But we will have a lot of time to do that after we are all set up. This e-mail is to get every student ready for next week. (If you have not picked up a Chromebook from the Middle School or you have no technology please let me know ASAP!!)

Students PLEASE READ:
Both classes will be hosted through Google Classroom. Beginning on Monday I will have 1 assignment posted in Google Classroom for ELA and 1 for Math. 

Step 1: By Monday, please make sure students are joined in my Google Classroom. On Friday, I will e-mail a video or screen shot video of how to add yourself to my Google Classroom in case anyone is struggling. I will also have instructions on my class webpage.


English Language Arts code is k64pnwa
Math code is  en4j44q

Step 2: Complete the virus questionairre for ELA & short Math assignment by Tuesday at 10 am.

During these unprecedented times I hope our young people have an opportunity to understand the gravity of the situation and that we are living in the midst of a major historical event....not just locally or nationally, but globally!
 
Parents and Students please do not hesitate to e-mail me [email protected] if you have any questions. We will continue to do interactive lessons and learning through an online format. My Lang Arts & Math students already use a variety of online platforms so I hope this is an easy transition for them. 
 
Google Classroom will be set up by Friday with further instructions.... Please plan on students being available beginning on Monday from 10 am - 11 am
