NEW Virtual or Hybrid Survey

Please complete this important SURVEY (linked) by September 24, 2020. This NEW survey will provide the most recent data in regards to each student's commitment to either a hybrid or virtual learning experience. During this implementation, parents will have the opportunity to choose if their child will participate in-person, or if you would prefer to choose all virtual learning. This survey will be considered your commitment to an instructional option for your child which is anticipated to begin on October 26th. Changes in commitment during the school year (opting in and out) will ONLY occur as follows: 

  • OPTION #1 (Hybrid) to Option #2 (Virtual) will require a written notice to the Principal.
  • OPTION #2 (Virtual) to Option #1 (Hybrid) can ONLY occur at the conclusion of a marking period/trimester with minimally 2 WEEKS written notice to the Principal.

NOTE: A survey must be completed for EVERY school-aged child in your household. (For example: Four children would equal four surveys). Additionally, for students attending in-person learning for Pre-School or Special Education Programming parents do NOT need to complete this form for that child as they will continue with their current in-person programming.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this important survey so that we can best plan to meet the needs of your child as well as our school community.

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. 

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.

School Supplies

Your student’s teacher will let you know what school supplies are needed for each class when virtual learning begins, you can also check your teacher’s webpage.

In closing, I want to thank you for your continued patience and support during this time.  We will need each other to be supportive, flexible, understanding and healthy.  Look forward to seeing you all again very soon.

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.
