Happy First Day of (Distance) School!

It’s time to hop out of bed, comb your hair, put on a cute T-shirt (with you pj bottoms) and join your classmates for another “first day of school” – from home!  Every classroom will have a virtual check in between 8:30 am – 10:30 am.  Times were emailed to parents.  Still not sure?  Check out the schedule here

We know that this is something new and different, but we are stronger together – We can do it!  Take pics of your first day of (distance) school and send photos to Ms. Bosurgi at .  We’ll make sure we include them in the yearbook.

Here are some helpful reminders and links in case you are feeling a little nervous…

Remember to take a deep breath, relax, and know that we are taking it slow as we all figure out the rhythm of distance learning.  Over the next week, teachers will guide your students (and you) through the expectations and begin to layer in the rigor of the content and learning experiences.
