Dear Corbett Prep families,
Our Corbett Prep Teachers have been busy connecting and planning through Zoom and phone conferencing meetings to prepare for next week's push to bring classroom instruction into the world of remote learning.
On Monday afternoon, please be sure to check your email for the Corbett Prep Family Remote Learning Plan. This plan is designed to guide you and your children through the use of Zoom along with Canvas, which is our LMS - Learning Management System. The directions will also include the logins for each child in your household. Logins may be different based on grade levels and divisions.
It is our goal to create a learning environment that mirrors an 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. schedule for classroom instruction and specials. The Teachers will be sending you their schedule each day that is based on an adaption of our regular 5-day rotation. Time for lunch, snacks, play and nap time (where appropriate) will be included in the schedules.
We do have a few laptops prepared for those in need. Many rumors are out there that the Stafford Act will be invoked requiring all of us to self quarantine. Just in case, it will be possible to borrow a laptop today from 2-6 p.m. by coming to the main East Side office. Please leave this option open to only those in real need. For general questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and for technology questions, please email email@example.com. Thank you so much.
Now for a Corbett Prep brain break! This coronavirus phenomenon that has turned our lives upside down has also been a catalyst for some creative and fun ideas. For example, click on this link and see our very own Chef Chris launch his first video in a series titled Cooking with Chef Chris.
Also, our very own Rick Bronson, who is excited to be creative since Disney is closed, is preparing to launch Mr. Bee by the Tree, which is a series of read alouds for the whole family.
We look forward to communicating more and more as we develop the capacity to serve our community with caring, compassion and support!.
With continued gratitude, Joyce
