Final Principal's All Call June 5, 2020
Posted on 06/05/2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We DID IT!!!!  School’s Out for Summer!

Now we all can have a sigh of relief. We have just experienced something that has never happened in history. We moved to 100% online learning in 5 days. I know there have been bumps in the road, but we have to have these experiences to learn and grow. Even educators and leaders learn and grow from these experiences. In thinking about online learning, we have one HUGE favor to ask… would you please complete a parent survey about technology and online learning?  Your responses will be helpful for future adventures in Google Online Learning. (Link to Survey). Parent emails will be removed when staff is reviewing the results so that you remain anonymous.

As you know, the State of Ohio/ Governor DeWine is still finalizing decisions about school for next year. There are so many aspects to consider when making these decisions. Just know when students and teachers are allowed to enter the school building, there will be health precautions and protocols in place. In addition, technology will continue to be integrated more whether we are in online learning or in the classrooms.

 

Here are some Thank-you’s

 

A big should out to Mr. Canavan and Ritzman Staff for all their work on our first Virtual Field Day. We hope you enjoyed the virtual event.

 

Second, a HUGE thank you to all the parents, students and families that participated in the End of the Year parade. The event really helped to mend some broken hearts from quarantine.

 

Finally, an enormous thank you to staff and parents who collaborated together in this new, unexpected online learning environment! Thank you for your dedication to children and their learning.

 

Here are a few reminders:

 

Kindergarten registration is open. Any guardian may go to www.akronschools.com.  In the yellow COVID box on the right hand side is a link for registration for 2020-2021.

Please take good care of your Chromebooks. Remember the tips for cleaning Chromebooks over the summer and if you have any issues, visit Ellet High School during the designated times of 9:30-11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday.

Meals will continue to be distributed over the summer. The same protocol is in place. Drive through Ritzman’s parking lot between 9:30-11:30 am, Monday through Thursday.

Report Cards will be mailed in 1 week. I will send another all call when they are sent. Homeroom numbers and class lists for next year are not finalized. Please check back in August.

 

We love you and appreciate you, parents and guardians! Continue to call me at 330-761-7903 or email me at (imcintos@apslearns.org) if you need anything.

Enjoy your summer break! Be sure your child takes time to read, read and read over the break!

 

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. M
