Weather:

With the snow predicted this weekend, please make sure your child has snow gear, including boots so that we can go outside.  Please also remember to have your child dress in layers to stay comfortable.

McLean’s Workshop:

Earlier this week we had the opportunity to hear from experts from the McLean’s School Consultation Service about helping our children to manage the stress and anxiety associated with this pandemic.  This is such a challenging time for all of us, and as a parent and an educator I found the presentation to be valuable and informative.  In case you missed it, here are the links to the presentation:

Caring for your Student Device

To clean the iPad and Chromebook

Please power down the device.  Using a soft, damp cloth like a hand towel or microfiber (wring out excess moisture), gently wipe down the case, keyboard, and screen.  Dry with a soft, dry cloth.  Please avoid using paper-based products (napkins, paper towels, etc.…) as they may abrade the screen and keyboard lettering.  It is not necessary to use any cleaning chemicals, and bleach must be avoided.

Additional notes

Please shut down (not just close the cover) the Chromebook daily to ensure all updates are installed regularly.

 

Looking forward to seeing you tonight at our Pajama Dance Party - I sent a message directly to parent/guardian email addresses with the link. 

With warm wishes for good health and peace,

Danielle-Betancourt
