• Dear Families,


     In preparation for a possible school shut down, the first grade team has created a plan to teach remotely for an extended period of time.  In order to effectively do this, we/you will be using online programs: Pearson Realize, iReady, Think Central, and Journeys.  Please refer to your child's login page that will be sent home.  In your child's backpack, you will find the Journeys Reader, Journeys Readers Notebook, Close Reader, Writing Handbook, Elevate Science Workbook, and Pearson Math Book.  PLEASE do not remove these materials from your child's book bag, until further notice.  Should school continue to be open, your child will need to carry these materials back and forth in their book bags until notified.


      It is our intention to keep your child educated through remote learning.  In order to effectively implement this unprecedented method of learning, we will be assigning daily lessons via Google Classroom.  Please make sure to check Google Classroom daily for assignments.  Your child will be held accountable for completing any work that has been assigned.  Upon return to school, it will be expected that your child submits his/her completed work.


     We will be in daily communication with you should this emergency occur.  We certainly hope this isn't the case, however, we want to be proactive so that there is no gap in learning.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for your continued support in your child's education.


    Kind regards,

    Susan DeNinno
