Happy New Year!
I trust that you all have had a wonderful winter break and are ready for our next adventure. I was so hopeful that we would all be back together tomorrow, but that is just not possible at this time. We want to do whatever it takes to keep our school family safe. For now, going with the virtual option is in our best interest. I want to share some information with you as we move into this new phase of learning.
You can expect communication from your child's teacher with a daily schedule, expectaions and guidelines for the next two weeks.
Our current virtual students will continue just as they have been doing. There are no changes to their schedules or expectations.
Face to face students moving to virtual will see the biggest change. All students in 5K-5th grade will be moving to virtual instruction. Your child's teacher will provide important information for you to follow. Our 4K students as well as students in Hope Jones' class and Cameron Richards' class will be provided with instructional packets. These packets are available at the front door of the school in the blue bins. Packets are labeled with student names and teacher names. Your child's teacher will provide information about how to turn in completed assignments.
For all students, attendance is critical. To be counted present for the instructional day, all assignments must be completed and turned in by 9:00 am the following morning.
While we are participating in virtual learning, our culinary services will be providing meal bags for pick up at McLaurin. They will be available from 11:00-2:30 on January 4, January 6 and January 11. You may pick these meals up at the bus port at the back of the building.
All technology related issues will be handled by the District Technology Department. If you need assistance, please call 843-673-1180 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Throughout this time, we will continue to track Covid cases. If your child should test positive, we ask that you let us know. You can reach me, or our nurses, by email or by calling the school number.
I appreciate your attention to this important information. I will keep you updated as we move forward.
