Transcript from this morning's phone message -
Good Morning Parents,
This is Anthony Sperazzo, Gilford High School Principal.
Our staff is positioned to launch remote learning on Monday, March 23rd although many of your children have already heard from teachers about expectations going forward. This is a time to complete missing work and finalize your reassessments.
As you know, we have been using Google Classroom for quite some time now and this will be our main platform for reaching students. Most assignments can be viewed in your teacher's Google Classroom each morning by 9:00am unless there's an ongoing assignment. Teachers will also be using Google Meet which will allow for curriculum to be taught while joining a chat live and interacting. Please be patient with this platform.
Each staff member has been asked to make office hours public so that students can access them and can expect almost an immediate response. For contact outside office hours, staff members have committed to respond within 24 hours.
We are creating a remote learning page that is full of resources to assist you during this time and can be viewed at the GHS website named, "Remote Learning" at the top of the page. This page will be growing.
For this online learning to be successful, I am asking you and also pleading with you that you check your email frequently. This will make or break this unique learning opportunity. The work that is put in now will help down the road. If the effort is not made, there will be learning gaps that show up later.
Please be patient. You can do this! Have fun! Take a picture of yourself learning and completing your assignments and Tweet it at GilfordHigh or send me an email so we can post how you're learning.
Take care of yourself and get out and enjoy the fresh air. Please email me with any questions you have. Be well!
