Afternoon Park Visits will occur at Jay’s Nest Park Monday-Thursday from 12:30-1:30. There will be no 1-1s and lunch bunch/read aloud are combined to go from 11:45-12:15. Due to a scheduling conflict on Ms. Leslie’s end (so sorry!), our closing meeting on Tuesday will be from11:20-11:30 and lunch bunch/read aloud is cancelled. On Friday, all meetings are asynchronous and will be shared via email and Seesaw. There will be no lunch bunch, read aloud, or 1-1s on Friday October 23rd and Monday, October 26th.

Right now, we are working mostly with Zoom and Seesaw, as well as communicating via email and our Google voice numbers. If you have had trouble setting up, accessing, or navigating Seesaw, please reach out to Ms. Leslie or Mr. Willie. In addition to the grab and go bags, children can use Seesaw to complete works by either drawing, writing, or recording themselves.

The Zoom link for all of our meetings (including 1-1s) has been emailed out. If you need the link again, please reach out to Ms. Leslie. Our daily schedule is as follows:

8:45 Morning meeting

11:20 Closing meeting

11:45 Lunch bunch

12:15 Read aloud

This is the schedule M-F, but please keep in mind that on Wednesdays the children also have art and music via Zoom. Art is from 9:30-9:50 and Music is 10:00-10:20.

If you send a note with your child and don’t hear back from us within 48 hours please follow up with a call or email. Backpacks have a way of making notes disappear…it’s the strangest thing!
