    Greetings College Park Families, 

    You should have received a recent district communication titled:  School Closure Information. It contains information addressing: Distance Learning – Student and Parent Orientation and Student Meals – List of Participating Schools. This information is posted on the district web site.

    The following information pertains to College Park Elementary School:

    ·       For students without a home computer, Chromebook, or tablet device, they may pick up a school-issued Chromebook.

    ·       Grades three, four, five and six Chromebook distribution will take place on Monday, March 23, 2020, beginning at 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and at 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 21, 2020, we will distribute Chromebooks starting at 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

    ·       Who needs to pick up a Chromebook?

    o   Currently, we are only providing Chromebooks for third through sixth grade students. If you have a device at home, you are not required to check out a Chromebook.

    ·       The distribution will take place in our multi-purpose room. Please know your child’s grade level and teacher’s name. Tables will be set up by grade levels. We will need to adhere to the social distancing guidelines.

    ·       Please help spread the word regarding this information and please keep your contact information up to date.

    We have amazing teachers at College Park and they have been working so hard to transition to a distance learning model.  I am continually impressed to see the engagement of our teachers and their willingness to learn new technology to meet the needs of our students.  Our goal is for learning to continue for all students.  I am aware some students/family members are the experts with technology while other students may need additional support.  Students are expected to communicate with their teacher on a daily basis starting next week. Please check your emails and normal mode of teacher/parent contact for details.  If technology support is needed, please communicate specific concerns to your students’ teacher.  If you are unable to pick up a Chromebook, please advise your child’s teacher and we will schedule an additional date and information. 

    In addition, I will post updated school information on our website.  I appreciate your patience and support as we navigate this unfamiliar time together.  Please share with your student the importance to stay engaged with school even though they are not physically present in the classroom.  I want to share with you that I have participated in many Google Hangouts and Zoom meetings this past week and so have our teachers.  We are connected and we miss our students so make sure to relay that message from me.  College Park teachers are exploring various learning platform systems, video conferencing, virtual office hours, Screencasting, Zoom, etc.  Please stay safe and know we are excited regarding our ability to see our students via distance learning.
