Minor Changes to Our Online Education Program
March 29, 2020
 
Dear Parkway Parents,
Thank you for a successful first week of learning online! As a school community we continue to work together to ensure your child can learn and grow even under these extraordinary circumstances. We know that your children enjoy connecting with their teachers and we continue to strive to make this experience positive and engaging.
 
We have made some minor adjustments to the instructional schedules for Grades 1 through 4. Kindergarten schedules remain unchanged. The revised schedules allow us to integrate specials (Art, Music, PE/Health, and Library Media) across the grade levels and throughout the week. These new plans take effect Monday, March 30, 2020. The mornings will still be designated for instruction and the afternoon hours will be a time for you to check in with teachers.
 
Please know that teaching and learning in this virtual platform is new to us all, including our teachers. All teachers are recording their lessons so they will be available for future access by students. If you have any questions at all for me or your child’s teacher, reach out anytime. We are here to make this process as smooth as possible for you and your children.
Mrs. Mercy Chang
Principal
