COMMUNITY
This is the best resource for staying in the know.


Dear GLOBE Community, 

Happy first day of the 2020-21 School Year! We're so happy to welcome our students back and are excited to see each of their faces in GLOBE virtual classrooms today.

If you have any questions about virtual learning, please refer to GLOBE's Distance Learning Manual for Parents here, and contact our faculty and staff here.
GLOBE Distance Learning ... A few things to keep in mind
Schedule:
There will not be classes outside of school hours. 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We will have synchronous and asynchronous lessons, instruction, small groups on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays

Your students will be expected to be in class and participating in check-ins throughout the day. Attendance will be taken. 

Our school calendar has been updated and can be found here. We are proposing for the last day of school to be May 27, 2021

*We are unsure when we will be able to have school back in the building. When we do, whether it is hybrid or all in, we want to be more than ready. We are looking for some parents who would like to be a part of GLOBE's reopening plan review team. We are looking for parents with expertise in this area of opening spaces during this pandemic. (FORM)
Parent Sessions
GLOBE recently offered four parent sessions by the leadership team to provide insight for parents to better prepare for school in virtual mode. If you weren't able to stream them live, find the recordings and slides from each here.
Summer Assignments - Friendly Reminder!

In-Person Virtual Learning Assistance for Kindergarten-5th Grade

The ECP Program will offer childcare beginning August 19, 2020. This care is intended for elementary age children whose parents must leave the home to work. The Aftercare workers will be providing a safe space using strict Covid-19 guidelines.

The GLOBE's In-Person Virtual Learning Care (IVLC) is designed to provide students a comfortable and safe environment to accomplish their virtual learning/digital assignments, grow and play in a safe space. Kindergarten thru 3rd grade will meet at Lower Campus from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4th and 5th grade will meet at Upper Campus from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Space will be extremely limited. There will only be 12 openings for each grade level.

MAP Testing

MAP testing will be the weeks of August 31 through September 11, 2020
