Here we go. Week 3 of 2021…
As of the School Committee Meeting on 1/14/21, there was no change in plan for the Cohort C students to come back as of Tuesday, 1/19/21. Our Cohort A and B will be coming back the week of 1/25/21. Yeee haw! We can’t wait to see you in the halls and working hard in the classrooms. As of now, I’m sure you have heard the buzz about “Pool Testing”. The district will be piloting additional pool testing over the next few weeks. Prior to any testing there will be parental consents sent home that will need to be signed if you are willing to move forward with the testing. No student will be allowed to pool test without signed written consent.

In the upcoming weeks we will be conducting iReady diagnostics and some of the google meets could be interrupted. Staff will be providing assignments and other creative forms of lessons to ensure learning continues. Your cherubs will be tested in both Math and ELA. Math will take place the week of Jan. 25 and ELA will be Feb. 1. On another note, it’s imperative for our students to understand the importance of iReady diagnosis. We would appreciate it if you would reinforce what our teachers are currently emphasizing, the purpose of why we are doing this. Without purpose, students may rush or not put forth their best effort. Here are some tips to help students excel, PowerPoint® presentation. You can also use i-Ready Pledge Sheets to encourage effort and engage students before they begin testing.
