Welcome to Mrs. Pettis' VPK Class!
I know that we are all going through a very difficult time right now, but please know that I am here for you and your child for whatever your needs may be. I am not sure if I will be working from the classroom this entire week yet. I will definitely be here Monday through Wednesday of this week (March 30-April) I will decide after Wednesday if I will work from home or continue to come to school. I am available via phone Monday through Wednesday of this week at the school number (352) 671-6820 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (except Tuesday 9:00-10:00 when I have a conference meeting with the VPK personnel). I am always available through ClassTag as that has been very successful this year with communicating with each other. I am also available via the school email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be getting a PreK at home lesson each week until we are able to return to school. Our PreK students are only required to do 20-40 minutes of at-home learning each day. If you would like more activities, please let me know and we can figure something out. Also, if you would prefer to get a paper copy of the lesson, let me know and the office will print a copy out for you to come to school to pick up. I I do need to let them know if you are coming by the school because these packets are placed outside on a table to limit contact.
The school district has begun using an app called Zoom to hold meetings, etc. It is a video conferencing app (similar to FaceTime) where we can see each other while holding a conversation. If you think you would be interested in a "face to face" meeting with me or your child would like to connect with me, please feel free to let me know and we can set up a time to do this via the Zoom app. The link for this app is at the top of this page. You would have to sign up for it, but it is free. I would love to see and talk to my school babies! (I know, they are not babies, but they are mine in my heart!)
Please stay healthy, and let me know if there is anything you need!
