We know how challenging it has been trying to establish learning expectations and routines while your children are at home. We are going to be posting your questions and hopefully answers – here.
Please fill out the Google Form to ask about specific questions or challenges that you are having in providing a learning space for your children.
|I don’t know what Google Classroom is? What is Thorp doing for my child during the closure?||Please email your child’s teacher. They will give you the codes. Or you can look here.|
|Why does the attendance keep telling me that we’ve already submitted it?||The original form was set up with limit to one response. If you are getting this problem, just make sure you turn-in the assignment. We’ll be switching to a question format for attendance next week that will take care of this problem.|
|Why hasn’t my child’s teacher made face-to-face contact?||The meeting function is something that we are working through. I have asked teachers to meet with small groups – as meeting with a whole class is really unruly. There are guidelines that we are setting up – but we hope to make personal contact with every student at least once per week. There will also be meets that will be recorded to explain new or misunderstood concepts.|
|Can we still have IEP Meetings?||We do not have clear guidance yet from CPS. Please feel free to email our case manager if you have questions.|
|Can related service providers provide services during this time?||The district has not established guidelines. But please join the Google Classroom set up by Ms. Davis for Speech and Language, by going to classroom.google.com and entering the code: z4hb2r6|
|My kids is done. What do I now?||Time for outside activities! Here are some ideas: Math Ideas, Outdoor Games And here are 101 other ideas.|
