Dear EY2 Parents,
We’d like to wish everyone a happy new year, and welcome you back to school for Term 2. While we are all disappointed not to be seeing the children in person, we are confident that our online program will take them on an exciting learning journey while nurturing social connections remotely.
Parents are invited to pick up home learning packages from the KIS campus during the school day tomorrow. These will include your QR codes for accessing SeeSaw, basic school supplies, reading materials, and hard copies of learning engagements for this week while we are still setting up our online platforms. (These activities will also be available on SeeSaw, however we are providing paper versions as well for this week.)
Our fully online program will begin on Monday, using SeeSaw and Zoom. Every Friday, we will provide an overview of the week to follow (posted on the blog and on SeeSaw), and will share the daily plan each morning on SeeSaw as well. As indicated on our weekly schedule (attached), we will begin each day at 7:50 by posting a video on SeeSaw, and assigning SeeSaw activities for the children to complete at flexible times throughout the day, as is convenient for your family. Zoom activities will take place at specified times, with the links provided on the weekly schedule. These will include meetings with homeroom teachers, specialist classes, storytimes, and literacy groups. Our schedule also includes “Help Desk” times, which are optional Zoom meetings, when we will be available to answer questions. Please be patient, as we are currently setting up all of the Zoom accounts and links.
We would like to invite all of the children for a welcome back Zoom meeting today at 1:00pm. An adult should be present for all Zoom meetings, for supervision and technical support.
You will receive more details in the coming days regarding Zoom links and literacy groups. We ask for your understanding as we are busily setting up our plans and online platforms.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at 1:00pm today on Zoom!
Ms. Risa and Ms. Nicole
