To all of you who emailed me last night offering your help, we can only say thank you!! We may have a role for you to play at some point, but we are in good shape for the next couple of weeks.

 

ASSIGNMENTS START ON MONDAY

 

I cannot emphasize some items in here enough. Kids must look at the next couple of weeks like we are in school with a remote location. They need to have a schedule that resembles what a normal school day looks like. They need to get up and eat breakfast. Afterwards, they need to crank up their devices or get online and see what they need to do for the day. Stop and eat lunch then finish up in the afternoon.

 

Some of our students struggle with organization and this is going to be a very difficult task for them Please help them as best you can and communicate with your child’s teachers so we can work to meet their needs. They are going to whine and complain, but they do that most days anyway so it isn’t just you. Whine and complain back and tell them to get rolling. Set goals. Set time frames for concentrated work. Call us if you need support!

 

OFFICE HOURS

 

We are planning to man our offices while school is out. There will be someone there most days and times. The Board Office will be open from 8:00-4:00 if you do not get an answer at school.

 

WIFI ACCESS

 

Eastwood will have outside Wi-Fi access beginning Tuesday afternoon in parking lot on the Luckey Road side

 

COMPUTER ISSUES

 

If there are issues with your child’s device or if it breaks, we will have our staff at the HS ready to repair or replace the device. Just come to the main office between 8:00 and 3:00 (call first) and we will let you in. We will be practicing social distancing, so do not be offended if we keep our distance.

 

If your child has lost the charger, then it will be on them to find a replacement. We do not have a supply of extra charging chords. You can order from Amazon and have one in 2 days. Email our tech staff and they will get you the right model number for your child’s device. Do not assume.

 

That is it for today. Have a great weekend! Stay safe and respect what CDC and the Health Departments are telling you to do. Let’s get to the other side!
