Hello Sloan Creek Families,
We hope your summer has been healthy and safe. As you can imagine, the information we receive from the State of Texas regarding the opening of schools is changing rapidly, but we wanted to send a few notes as we start to plan for the start of instruction.
3 Quick Items:
1. Today is the preliminary learning preference due date.
Today is the deadline to make your selection via PowerSchool noting your preference for in-person or online learning after September 7
. If you have not yet completed this, you will be receiving a separate email reminder later today with detailed instructions from
2. Yearbooks, Planners, and Technology
During the week of August 3, SCIS will be planning a “one-stop shop” pick up of technology and pre-ordered yearbooks and planners. We will be sending out details about the times and dates for pick up next week.
3. We cannot wait to see your kids again!
This week all of our teachers and staff are participating in our annual professional development, Learning in Lovejoy. With the delivery of instruction going online for all students over the first three weeks of school, all of our teachers will be taking a certification course for online teaching. This will allow us to take the great instruction that is delivered in the classrooms and provide an equally impactful learning experience for the students online. With that being said, instruction over these three weeks, and longer if you choose for your child to continue online learning, will look much different from the Spring. "Face time" with the teacher and direct instruction will be increased greatly.
We have been meeting with teachers, both individually and in their grade level teams over the summer, and two things have become abundantly clear:
1) SCIS staff cannot wait to be back on campus with their students doing what they love to do in an environment that is safe for everyone
2) No matter the environment in which they are teaching, online or in person, they won't accept anything less than extraordinary work from themselves.
It goes without saying, when we have students back on campus this year, it is going to be different. The procedures we put in place will be with the goal in mind of getting 100% of our students back on campus as soon as we possibly can so we can do what we do best, offer a great school experience for our kids. With that being said, until we are all back together, I can assure you we will work diligently to also offer an online experience that is second to none. Your standards should not be any less of us.
I cannot stress enough how important I feel it is for your children and the Sloan Creek staff to be on campus together again. It has been well communicated the benefits the children received from having this face to face social interaction. I believe we underestimate the value our staff gets from that same interaction.
Our goal remains to ensure that each child has an experience that is second to none at SCIS.
Please reach out to me if I can help in anyway,
