COVID-19: March 25th


Dear Parents: March 25, 2020

Hope your week is going well. We apologize for not sending an update yesterday, but we did not want to send it just for the sake of sending one, without useful information.

We’ll continue doing one update for the whole school so that everyone can see all the different things going on in the different divisions.

6th – 12th grade parents, we don’t have much that is new. All is going well with the virtual classes. Thank you for your help in ensuring your child(ren) come prepared to class.

12th grade parents, look out for another email later tonight.

4th – 5th grade parents, the teachers are preparing the next set of packets and they may be picked up on Friday, March 27th, in the Lower School Loop from 7:00 am – 9:00 am and from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm. A copy of your child(ren)’s report card will also be included with these packets. At this time, please also drop off any work they have completed from weeks 1 and 2. If you are unable to pick up the packet during those times, please email Fran Shaw at fshaw@waynecountryday.com with a date and time you would like to pick up. All those pickups will be at the main office door; you will not be allowed inside the building. Generally, we are available from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm.

Virtual instruction for 5K – 3rd graders will begin on Monday, March 30th. The virtual instruction is not mandatory and is meant to be in conjunction with the packets. The virtual classes will take place via Zoom. The teachers will send the parents an email containing a link to join the class. We have attached some helpful hints. The online times will be as follows:

5K: 9:00 am

1st – 3rd grades: 10:00 am

Please understand that the length of the online session may vary based on the students’ needs and adjustment to online learning. We expect the sessions to last between 10-30 minutes. The teachers are excited to see their students, and we imagine the children are also ready to see their friends and teachers.

In addition to these virtual classes or in lieu of them, parents may schedule an individual session for their child with the teacher. These sessions will be held Monday – Friday between 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. Please email your child(ren)’s teacher and schedule a time with her, as/if needed. Please give the teachers 24 hours’ notice to arrange one-on-one sessions. During these sessions, an adult must be present with the child for the duration of the session.

We will also be posting videos for the following classes so you may watch them at your convenience. The videos may be accessed on our website under the classroom blogs (https://www.waynecountryday.com/guardian-parent-portal). The videos will be posted per the schedule below:

We are excited about this next step of virtual teaching and learning. We can’t wait to post and show you the videos; I had a great time watching the teachers’ creativity while filming the videos. Stay safe!
