Remote Learning at Peabody

Remote learning started last Wednesday. We want to thank everyone for their patience as we work through the initial hiccups of moving to an online platform. Our teachers have worked hard to get this up and running as quickly as possible. Teachers will have work available for each new week posted by 8 AM on Mondays. You will also notice that specials teachers have added assignments starting this week. We know having your children home is challenging and all of our teachers will exhibit a high level of flexibility as we work through this together!

We are also working on additional short and long term contingencies so that we can respond to this crisis as it evolves. We are monitoring our local, state, and federal responses and we will alert you to any changes that may effect Peabody School and our operations.
Peabody (the building) is Closed

The building is closed to all visitors unless you have permission from Mr. Orlando. We have implemented social distancing for our staff and, with the exception of a weekly check-in from Mr. Orlando, no other member of the Peabody Community will have unapproved access to the building. Thank you for understanding.

We want photos!

We love featuring pictures of our students and staff every week in the newsletter! Please send photos of your children working at home so we can stay connected. You can send pictures to Mr. Orlando !
The Challenges of Working from Home

Gail Lovette, an assistant professor in the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education and Human Development, shared some ideas about how to make working from home manageable. She states, "This is different for everyone right now and we will all benefit from an abundance of patience – with ourselves, our children and our colleagues. Potentially, this first week will be kind of rough on everyone. Dig deep. Set small goals". Read the full story here.
