A strong partnership between faculty/staff and students/families is essential to our success in creating positive, safe, and productive online interactions for our community during Distance Learning.
We will be taking attendance daily at the morning circle for Lower School and at the start of every class in Middle School. Students in Middle School are expected to be in the waiting room at the start of class (we will help support your Middle School child as they are learning these routines). If you need a refresher of Park Day Zoom agreements, this is a printable visual Zoom agreement sheet for students.
For those who are engaged in Distance Learning in a small group at home our through the JCC program, we want you to be aware that:
Spread Goodwill and Avoid Negativity: When you see a ParentSquare post that helps or inspires you, you are invited to click the Appreciate button (the heart) or comment so people know their posts are being read and valued. Do not post anything that might be seen as negative about any teacher, parent, child, or other individual or group. Should you have concerns or ideas for improvement, please go to the source first, then consider speaking with school admin.
Only Add Information That is Closely Related To School: Please do not post advertisements or notices to ParentSquare about events or activities that are not directly related to school or what is being studied in your child’s classroom. If you have a classified or non-school related announcement, please use the Community Board (ParentSquare –> Participate –> Groups –> “Join”) to post information.
Teachers are with students, preparing for students, or planning lessons most of the school day. Please expect 24-48 hours during the school week before receiving an email response. We ask our teachers not to email over the weekend, so they have time to recharge. Please keep in mind that our teachers may, on any given day, be emailing with a dozen parents or more. Our school tries as much as possible to keep our teacher’s energies focused on our students and in the classroom. Thank you for your understanding!
