ATTENTION SCHOOL CLOSURE INFORMATION
*Please have your student to check the site everyday for daily/weekly assignments.*
I have started contacting parents/guardians regarding assignments to make sure your not running into any issues or problems. This will be done to facilitate the grading process. I will also be discussing a way to submit your work via email.
I have been receiving assignments through text message, please ensure that you name is on each one of the assignments that you are submitting. Also, we are still remaining respectful through our conversation via text or email (a greeting, state you thoughts or concerns and a closing). I miss and love all you, so it would BEHOOVE you to get those assignments done.
I am available Mon-Fri 8-4pm. You are welcome to call, text (706)750-9774 or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) me during those times.
Georgia remains under an active executive order to shelter in place to slow the spread of coronavirus until April 30, 2020. Governor Kemp has declared active State of Emergency through May 13, 2020 due to the coronavirus. As a result of statewide coronavirus school closures, The Georgia Department of Education provided school districts general guidance to relax requirements traditionally in place for grading, promotion and graduation. These circumstances will impact the remainder of the distance learning program for our students. Here are a few updates to help you prepare your family for the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
Beginning April 20, 2020, our meal distribution program will shift to a Monday, Wednesday and Friday distribution schedule and continue through May 22, 2020. Meals for Tuesday and Thursday will be provided during the prior distribution day.
RCBOE are planning scheduled times for students to pick up items left at school between May 13-May 22. Details regarding pick up times will be shared once they are reviewed by public health officials and we have clearance to enter school facilities.
The Richmond County School System will use the following grading guidelines for the 2019-2020 school year:
- For Students in Kindergarten – 8 th Grade: Work completed during distance learning that improves a student’s overall grades may be considered. Students will receive a final grade of PASS or FAIL for their courses based on overall content mastery. For students in grades 4-8, the minimum score to receive a passing grade is 70.
- For the 2019-2020 school year, the Richmond County School System will waive its promotion and retention policy.
- *Placement committees made of teachers, principals, and parents will have the flexibility to make placement decisions for students who do not meet traditional promotion criteria.* With this being said once all required assignments have been turned in or submitted through the online course, I will revisit your students grade(s) and will contact you (via phone call, text message and/or email). I have reached out to most of those parents that I have/had concerns about via email or text regarding your students grades in my class. It is impairative that a response is acknowledged to those emails/text messages so that we can discuss your students grades.
