From The Principal

Greetings families!

It was so good to see many of our returning students and welcome our newest students to the Phoenix family. We have a full schedule of pick-ups scheduled for tomorrow, September 4th as well.  Unfortunately, due to many scheduling conflicts, some of our students will need to pick-up their laptops Wednesday morning and afternoon, which is after the official start of remote and virtual learning.  

Students should be logged into their Schoology accounts by 7:20 a.m. Tuesday, September 8th to begin their first hour block.  I strongly recommend that they log on early in case they have difficulties connecting or accessing their class link.  I would also recommend that students take the time to connect to their home internet over the long holiday weekend.   They will need to know the network and password for their home location.   Use this time to become familiar with the device and the apps associated with each class.  We realize that many or our students are still unable to access PowerSchool due to login or password concerns.  Please be patient.  We are working with the IT department to have this issue resolved as soon as possible.  It will not impact students’ ability to complete their work or earn grades.   

 

Students will be marked absent if they are not logged into classes.  Please call the office if your child is absent class due to illness, appointments, etc.  Attendance will be taken every day, during every block, as if students were attending school in person.  Grades will be assigned for students’ work throughout the remote and virtual learning phase. Students will engage in synchronous (live) and asynchronous (independent/on your own) activities.   Please encourage your child to be an active participant in all lessons and activities.  This week, the teachers have been working hard to prepare assignments and post their syllabus, expectations, and online norms.  Students should be reviewing these documents and completing any “getting to know you activities.”  

STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT PICKED UP THEIR DEVICE BY FRIDAY, WILL BE NOTIFIED OF A FINAL PICK-UP DATE AND TIME FOR WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9TH.   

Please take the time to view the following videos to help ensure a smooth transition to the 2020-2021 school year.

I look forward to working with you and your family as we tackle a very unique learning experience for our students, teachers and support staff.   

We appreciate your patience and continued support!

All the best!
