Elementary Update – March 20th, 2020
Sandy Sheppard, Elementary School Principal
I hope things have been going well over the past days for you and your families. Please let us know if you have any questions about virtual learning. The teachers have been working hard to ensure your children have the best learning opportunities possible at this time.
Some of our teachers may travel in the coming days but they are committed to virtual learning until school reopens.
I am here in Yangon and happy to answer emails and support any way I can. We are a community and whether at school or at home we remain focussed on our students learning.
As a reminder, everyday, class work will be posted by 4pm by both the Secondary and Elementary school teachers and I encourage you to get into a new routine of checking in on the classwork everyday with your children. In times like this, it’s important to establish a new routine quickly to minimise any interruption in studies. The CDC offers some good advice see here.
We plan for the physical campus to reopen Monday, May 4. The Board of Trustees will evaluate on April 10, and again on April 20, whether or not we can reopen on 4 May.
Our staff participating in Virtual Learning planning today. Empty classrooms, but learning still happening. Send me a picture of your child Virtual Learning and I will put as many as I can in the upcoming blogs.
During this virtual learning time, I’d like you to know that I will remain available to students and families for any concerns or questions you may have. I can be reached through email at firstname.lastname@example.org and am happy to use online platforms for video conferencing. Here I have placed some information regarding how to talk with your child during difficult times.
