Hello Morgan Families,

I would like to thank you all for your continued patience with our non-traditional start to a new school year. We are making history and have been since this virus spiked early last spring. Having never experienced anything like this, it is difficult and frustrating to not have all the answers to questions. Please know that our Morgan staff and I are working hard to meet our students’ needs and keep everyone on a positive path in learning.

All of us recognize that this is a very different start to our school year. We look forward to the day when we can come together in a safe manner, but until that time it is important that we work closely together to make the new year a positive experience for our students.

Since we are committed to having the remote and virtual learning experience to be similar to what students would experience in an in-person experience, we want students to be prepared to use all of the resources available to them in these environments to be successful.

Your student’s teacher assignment will be emailed to you this Friday, August 28th.  Following our safety protocols, we will bring students and a parent into school during the first few days of school in small groups (up to 1 to 3 students with a staff member) between 20 – 45 minutes to issue devices, distribute materials, and teach how to utilize the resources available on the technology device.  During that time, students will be greeted by a staff member, be able to ask questions and review class expectations.

After returning home with the device (laptop or iPad), students should practice going onto their device each morning utilizing “Class Link” to access Schoology and continue to become familiar with the resources, as well as to complete the activities outlined for that day.  Students should be ready to begin their daily routines on Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

In addition to being prepared to receive the new device, we ask that you bring the attached completed registration materials with you during your scheduled time. If you are unable to print the document, we will have printed copies of this material in the classroom.

I will be sending an additional email to you with more information on what the technology device distribution will look like for Morgan Elementary after you receive your child’s teacher assignment on Friday.  This future email will contain a link to schedule a time to pick up your student’s device.  Please call 586-797-5800 or email at sue.lasky@uticak12.org if you have questions or concerns.

While the start of the school year will look different, the staff of Morgan Elementary is committed to meeting our mission: “Morgan is dedicated to developing lifelong learners through the working relationship of students, staff, and community”.

Several parents have inquired about school supply lists. We have revisited and revised our previous year’s lists to include some basic supplies that students may use while in a remote learning setting. You can find our updated lists for the start of the 2020 school year here: https://www.smore.com/gz6sf

Our Morgan staff is eager to see students in limited groups, following social distancing guidelines, during technology distribution next week. We miss in person learning and hope that our world will continue to improve from last spring and allow us to be together for safe, in person learning again soon.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Sue Lasky
