The 2020-2021 school year is off to an amazing, yet uncertain and unimaginable, start.  We are blessed to be back in the classroom with our students, even if it’s only once a week.  Our children understand the importance of social distancing, washing hands, sanitizing, and virtual communication.  These aren’t the terms we imagined our children needing to learn and use, but they are doing such a wonderful job!  We will work together to help our students feel safe, be successful this year, and have fun learning together.  

We encourage all parents to connect to ClassDoJo.  This is the easiest and most efficient way to communicate with your child’s teacher.  Teachers also share photos, upcoming events, and reminders through ClassDoJo.  There is very important information there and it would be helpful if you checked DoJo every day or so.

Many students will be in school one day a week but they will participate in Virtual Learning the other four days.  All students are expected to participate daily by logging into Google Classroom.  While working online, students will be joining Google Meets to participate with classmates and other students working from home.  Students will also complete lessons online and use notebooks, journals, and packets as assigned.  Student work will be assessed weekly.

Soon we will settle into a routine and become comfortable navigating all the digital resources. We are excited to be back in school and look forward to a fabulous year!  Please let us know of anything you need.  We love our little Alcoa Tornadoes!


Parents/Guardians and students please look over our Back to School District Protocols
