    School Closure- Parent Letter- March 17, 2020
     

    March 17, 2020

    I am writing to touch base with all of you in regards to these unforeseen events. In order for your child to continue to make progress, it is important that they continue to work on educational material from home each day. If he/she has access to the internet, they can continue to use the following curriculum websites to enhance learning. Students have been using these programs throughout the school year so they already have a student log-in and password. If for some reason they do not remember this information, you can email me directly and I can provide it for you.

    www.ixl.com (they can choose the diagnostic or learning pathway)

    www.membean.com

    www.aleks.com

     If you prefer to have paper/pencil work you can contact me through email and I can make those accommodations for you. At this very unique time, I also urge you to have your student read, write and work with math facts as often as possible.

    If your child has an annual IEP due in the month of April, May or June, I will be in contact by phone to conduct the IEP meeting. Please be sure the office has an updated phone number on file. If you need to update any contact information you can call the office at 814-874-6050.

    Stay positive and healthy!

     

    Sincerely,

    Welcome Message:
     

    Hello. My name is Lindsey Divins and  I am looking forward to an exciting year here at Wilson. Communication among the parent, teacher, and student is an important component for success.  I look forward to talking with you as the school year goes on. Please call or email me throughout the year with any questions and concerns you may have.  

    Class Preparedness:  Students are to be prepared everyday with all materials.  Each student is to come to class ready to learn with the required materials.

    Homework: Homework is to reinforce and apply concepts learned in class.  If students are assigned homework it is for reinforcement or it is because they did not utilize time during class to get the day’s assignment done.

    Missed Work:  If the student is absent it is his/her responsibility to make up any work missed whether it is notes, assignments, or tests/quizzes.  I highly recommend using extra help night for this. 

    Extra Help:  Your child’s academic success is just as important as his/her behavior.  Adaptations are made for unique learning styles.  There is absolutely no reason for failure.  Extra help night for mathematics is on Tuesday’s and ELA is on Monday’s after school.  If this time is not convenient, I am happy to accommodate the student with extra help before or after school provided advanced notice is given. 

    Accountability:  The students are responsible for all materials, assignments, behavior, and effort for a positive and productive school year.  There are no excuses for being unprepared or acting out in the classroom.  The discipline policy handbook will be referred to and followed for any misbehavior. 

     Classroom Expectations:                                                                

    1. Respect yourself and others. 
    2. Be on time and prepared. 
    3. Be on task.                            
    4. Be responsible for all your actions. 
    5. Work hard.

    If you have any questions or would like to talk with me, please call the school office at 814-874-6600 and leave a message or by email at ldivins@eriesd.org

      

    Sincerely,
