    Greeting Kirby Comets!

    Congratulations! You’ve all made it through the first week of this new way of teaching and learning, Duval HomeRoom! You all deserve to be celebrated!  To our super parents who are now supporting students with home learning, you did an outstanding job during this first week. Many of you jumped right in and learned new technology to help support your children, others did what you needed to do to make sure your student had a device to access their instruction. Everyone stretched outside their comfort zone to do what was necessary for our students! I thank each and every one of you.

    Last week we had many wins, but we recognize that there was a need to update our schedule. The new schedule will allow students to organize their time and work in a way that is more familiar to them. It will also allow the teachers to be more attentive to students in a smaller virtual setting.

     

    In the new schedule students will:

    • Access the teacher’s teams based on their regular A/B Day Schedule
    • Have access to their teachers for assistance during office hours in a smaller setting (only students from that class period should be in those office hours)
    • Use Fridays to complete assignments and communicate with teachers
    • If students need to refresh their memory about their schedule, schedules can be accessed in Focus
    • Monday/Wednesday
