Zooms/Google Meets in Google Classroom, parents and their participation

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Each year pictures and videos of students are often taken for use in district publications, press releases, school/district websites and/or as an instructional resource during remote learning activities (i.e. zoom or google meets live sessions).  If a parent, guardian, or student does not want to be photographed or videotaped for these purposes, please contact the building or grade level principals.  We will be happy to clarify any questions you may have and/or accommodate your request to not have your child photographed or videotaped.

Also, we encourage parents to be actively involved in their child’s remote learning experience and hope that you regularly connect with teachers so that your child has a well-rounded education.  We do ask that parents refrain from participating in live sessions.  The sessions are meant for the students and parent/teacher contact should occur outside of live instructional time.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding of this request.

Lastly, taking attendance for remote learning is new for us this year.  There are expectations set by the state that require schools to take attendance even for those students learning at home.  Students who fail to engage in learning at home will be referred to administration for chronic absenteeism which we would like to prevent if at all possible.  We ask that if your child is not able to participate in remote learning that you notify the school so that we can mark attendance accordingly.  We will be using the same procedure that is utilized in our traditional setting.  Please contact the school if you have questions regarding attendance.  

Sincerely,

Tonya West Wright
