Dear Swift Families:

I
hope this letter finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe.  The 2020-21 school year is upon us and our entire staff is excited to support you and your child.  I look forward to the moment when I can welcome our new and returning families to our campus in-person.  Until then, we have been working hard to prepare for this online learning adventure which will begin on Tuesday, September 8th.  I want to thank you for your patience and support as we get ready to launch this virtual learning experience.  I know you have many questions about what the start of the school year will look like and I would like to share the following details which should help address some of those questions.

Technology

In order to get information about the school and your child, you will want to create an account for the PARENT PORTAL. If you are unfamiliar with Parent Portal, Google Meet, Google Classroom, or any other school-based tool, please visit our YouTube channel for “How-To” for EHT: Parent Series (Click here for the Link).

Student Schedules

Establishing routines and schedules for your child will ensure their overall success. We want our teachers and students to follow a schedule that is very close to the schedule they will have when returning to school in person.  Therefore, attendance is important and we expect our students to attend their Google Classroom daily.  We will pay particular attention to the social and emotional needs of our students, building strong relationships in this new environment and ensuring their comfort as an online learner.

I have included a Sample Schedule for your review.  This is a Kindergarten Schedule; however, all students K-3 will follow the same time schedule

Student schedules will be released on the Parent Portal on September 1st. Here is a Sample Schedule for your review – this is not the same schedule for every student; however, the timeframe for each day will be the same.

Dear Parents and Guardians, 


WELCOME or WELCOME BACK to Swift Elementary!!!! I hope your family had a safe and fun filled summer despite all of the restrictions. All of us at Swift are excited to begin the 2020/2021 virtual/hybrid school year!

 

As the School Counselor, I understand that the new procedures and technology can be overwhelming and confusing. Please know that I am here to remind you to take a deep breath and help you the best I can.


In this virtual world of counseling I will be scheduling Google Meetings with individual students on an as needed basis. Please send me an email if you’d like me to meet with your child.


I hope your child will join my Google Classroom: Miss Feaster’s Counseling Classroom  CODE: syulgyp and visit my Virtual Counseling Office.

There they will find a variety of social emotional learning videos and activities which may provide a nice break from their academic classes.

Please feel free to contact me any time during my virtual office hours: Monday- Friday 8:45am-3:45pm.
