Weekly Update from Mrs. Gower - 11/20/20
November 20th, 2020
Dear Wes Families,
Thursday and Friday Chromebooks were delivered to students who didn’t already have a school device. A yellow colored paper also came home with the Chromebooks. Please read this paper for helpful information. As noted on the paper devices should be charged each night so that they come to school fully changed on the days when the student comes to school. There is a link to our “Winslow Public Schools Family Technology Support Form” on our website on the first page under a heading called Latest News and Announcements. This form can be used if your student is having trouble with their device.
Please remember to check the schedule posted on our website so that you know which cohort day it is. There is a new cohort calendar posted on the website that goes through the end of February 2021.
December 1st there will be a virtual informational night for our Title 1A program. You should have gotten a letter about it this week and more information with the link to join will be in next week’s online letter from me.
Please remember to complete the COVID-19 pre-screening tool every morning before sending your child to school. This must be done each day. This can be found on our website. Please remember to call the school each day your child will not be present.
There will be a flu clinic at the Alfond Youth and Community Center for school aged children on Monday, November 30th from 2-4pm. Contact the AYCC by 11/24 or contact Mrs. Choate our school nurse.
Here are some helpful links from the CDC and State of Maine about safe family gatherings for the holidays and travel guidelines to non-exempt states.
Thanks for helping to keep us all healthy and safe.
Have a restful weekend!
