3-5 Grade InD Self-Contained
March 30, 2020
I hope this finds you well and safe. I know times are hard, please know I miss your child so much and miss our school days. As you may have heard, we are moving into a hybrid virtual platform. This platform may or may not be conducive to your student with special needs.
We have come up with a plan that I hope not only works for your child, but for you as well. The lessons that we have put together will meet your child's needs by continuing where we left off in our Encore program. It will include “parent friendly” instructions on how to work with your child on the assignments. I will also be including a separate packet that will have some worksheets your child can also work on for review and fun in addition to the Encore work. All students are also encouraged to continue working in their ABCMouse and Prodigy Math online accounts. I will be putting together a list of student logins and passwords for those who need it.
For the paper lessons, my plans include your choice of: (1.) Emailing you the work to print from your home computers. or (2.) I will print the work and place in a folder. I will place the folder outside of the school in a box labeled MCCLARY. (this is where the district has also been placing their packets and is our advised location as well).
First, and very important, I need from you is the email address you check regularly. Please provide me that information regardless if you choose to pick up folder or not so I am able to have another way of contacting you. Second, please chose the plan that works best for you and your family. Third, advise me of any supplemental work you would like me to gather on skills you would like to work on besides the IEP work skills, guidelined curriculum work, and basic review skills that I will include for you weekly during this time. Fourth, please tell your child I miss them and have been thinking about each of them every day. Thank you so much for your flexibility. We will get through this together!
During this time, I can be reached at (352) 462-2019 when you need me as well as my school email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also continue to communicate on ClassDojo as most of us are already comfortable using it. Please do not hesitate to reach out, I am here for you and your child.
Sincerely, Beau McClary
