Letter to parents 7th January

 

 January 7th 2021

 

Dear Parents / Guardians

Our systems have again run smoothly today in respect of Live Online lessons. However, if we should run into any difficulty students and parents should not worry, as students can just revert to completing the assignments set in Google Classroom.

Time is given over at the end of each lesson for students to complete their classwork and submit it to their teacher. Students need to remember to do this at the end of each lesson, to avoid the work showing as undone in the weekly Guardian summary parents receive.

If students encounter issues with sound when using Webex for Live Online lessons, then we believe the following Guide may help to address this:

Downloading and Starting the Webex Client

As with all our Guides please download and save these – or ensure the students do - for ease of reference.

We are fully aware that students and their families will face a wide range of challenges in the current situation and with this in mind our colleagues at Folkestone & Hythe District Council have provided us with their

Directory of Services for Children, Young People & Families

Please ensure students complete Daily Tutor Time activities posted in the Google Classroom to the following timetable. These tasks are actually fun to do – even together as a family – and so important to students’ general development. Students should access these materials and submit their work at the end of the day.

Monday: Literacy
Tuesday: Digital Library
Wednesday:  Numeracy
Thursday: PSHE
Friday: Quiz

We want all our students to remain safe by following the National Lockdown Guidance

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home

as well as to remember social distancing, hand washing and face coverings, so as to play their part in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.

 

Yours Sincerely,

 

Sonette Schwartz       

Principal
