Dear Headwaters Springs Community, 

As I shared with you last week, our guides have been working to prepare for distance learning for your children. We will be using Zoom for classroom meetings. Zoom is a great platform that doesn't require users to have an account--all you need to do is click a link that your guides will provide. In addition, we will also be recording the Zoom sessions for availability after the meeting ends. Those recordings will be available in the Nest as guides get more familiar with the systems; we will let you know when and where they are available. Those who do not wish for their children to be video-recorded in Zoom may opt to attend the meeting with audio only.  

The structure of the schedule will be basically the same each day, as I know how important routine is for children. The things that will change are the various lessons and activities in the work period. Guides are coordinating classroom synchronous time slots (like Afternoon Circle Meetup via Zoom and Movement). Lead Guides are preparing parent informational materials, as well. Guides will share classroom schedules with you via email.

While campuses are closed, you can expect the following from your classroom guides:
  • Schedules and plans will be sent as a Nest News item on a daily basis . Starting tomorrow morning, check your inboxes for a notification from the Nest with a link to your child's schedule. 
  • Lessons and activities that don't require Montessori materials at home. There is no need to purchase Montessori materials.
  • Days will consist of academic, non-academic, movement lessons, storytime, and other activities. 
Later today, you will be receiving an email from your classroom guides with specific information for your child's class. It will include a link to your class's schedule and resources, as well as other details. 

As a reminder, you can access the Nest by going to Headwaters.org and clicking "Nest Login" at the top right or by clicking this link. If you forget your username or password, just click "Need help logging in?" to be guided to a page to recover your username and/or password with just your email. If you have further login problems, please reach out to it@headwaters.org .  

Take care,

Susie
