Dear Glenwood Parents,

I am writing to provide some guidance on Glenwood's daily attendance check-in and the pacing of assigned work during this period of distance learning.

In a nutshell: children should be checked in as present unless their current health would cause you to keep them home from school AND they are too sick to do distance learning work at home. In that event, please send an email to Mrs. Horowitz as usual, explaining your child's symptoms, and mark your child absent for that day on the Google form.

If your child is able to engage in activities and learn that day, please mark him or her as present. The distance learning and/or enrichment materials may be completed at any point in the day because different children work at different speeds, for various durations of time. The exact duration of home study per day, and the volume of material completed on that particular day, do not factor in for attendance purposes. Upon returning to school all packets will be checked for completion.

Once students complete their packet work indicated for the first week, they may extend their learning through the enrichment activities. With that said, please save week two work in the packet for week two and so on. Please keep in mind it is beneficial for children, especially in times like this, to have a predictable schedule for work time, playtime, eating time and bedtime. 

Be well,

Dr. David Jasin and Mr. Dan Garcia

Good evening Glenwood Parents,

 

As you are aware, Millburn Schools will be closed for the next two weeks starting on Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 27th. Tomorrow, Glenwood will have an early dismissal at 12:40. Both faculty and parents will not have access to the building over the next two weeks.

 

Tomorrow, we will send each of our students home with a distance learning packet. This packet has activities for language arts, math, science, social studies and physical education that reflect our curriculum objectives at your child's grade level. In addition, a variety of enrichment activities for each grade level will be provided. Some of these activities will utilize online resources. Directions are included and additional information will be provided via e- mail. If your child will not be in school tomorrow, please stop by to retrieve your packet from the main office between noon and 3:30. While we are not “grading” the assignments, participation is critical for both continued learning and accountability purposes. Please send your child back to school with a fully completed packet including any work done on loose paper. Teachers will check each packet for completion upon their students’ return to school.

 

Please note that information will be forthcoming regarding your child's daily participation / attendance through a Google Form for distance learning each day. It is important that you take a moment each day to log on and indicate your child's participation / attendance.

 

If your child happens to get sick with any type of illness, please e-mail Mrs. Horowitz horowitz@millburn.org with that information and updates regarding the illness. We cannot mail medication to your home. If your child has medication in the nurse’s office, and you would like to retrieve it, please do so tomorrow by 3:30. Any desired personal items must go home tomorrow, as well.

 

Over the next two weeks, avoidance of larger gatherings and social distancing, as recommended by the New Jersey Department of Health and the CDC, will optimize the effectiveness of the school closure. Please keep this in mind as you make your plans.

 

Wishing you and your families well,

 

Dr. David Jasin

Principal, Glenwood Elementary School
