Sunday Messenger: Aug.31 – Sept. 4, 2020

Hello Juarez-Lincoln Families, 

Welcome back everyone! School begins tomorrow on August 31 at 8:15am through Distance Learning.  We are all very excited to connect with our students tomorrow.  

In the coming weeks, and possibly months, education will take on the form of Distance Learning.  Our Certificated and Classified staff have worked hard to create the conditions for an excellent and meaningful Distance Learning experience. Students and teachers will connect every day and students will engage in learning and develop literacies in the language arts, math, music, art, science, and physical education.  We will strive to also ensure our students develop social and emotional wellness, as well as their inner potential.

As always, the first week of school will be important. During the first week. teachers will explain their schedules, routines, and give an overview of what Distance Learning will look like.  Families will also work to get their children connected. We will work as partners to ensure the best learning experience. Please support in ensuring your child has a set place to log in every morning at 8:15am.

Pay close attention to the day and time your grade level teachers will distribute learning materials.  During distributions, we will also send home important paperwork, such as the 2020-2021 Parent Handbook.  

Remember to visit and sign up for the school blog to keep yourself updated at all times-
