School Reopening and Orientation Information

Good afternoon Sleepy Hill Elementary families!
Here are a few announcements for the upcoming reopening of school. This message will repeat in Spanish below. We are gearing up to start school on Monday, August 24 through regular campus learning, as well as through campus e learning. As final preparations are being made, we would like to make sure that you completely understand the differences in your options. Under the campus learning model, students and teachers will be attending school as normal, following CDC guidelines and wearing masks throughout the day. Under the campus e learning model, students and teachers will follow a strict schedule just like they would if they were coming to school as normal. Students are required to have a daily online presence from 7:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. in order to be considered for attendance and participation. The third option is to withdraw your child from Sleepy Hill and enroll him/her in Polk Virtual, where the schedule for e learning may be more flexible. At this point, selections have been made and we are building schedules and class lists. Make sure you are comfortable with your choice. Any changes or reconsidering of your choice need to be made by Friday, August 7. We are still waiting on about 140 of you to make your selection or you will be enrolled as an on-site campus learner. Please call the school office at 863.815.6768. New students need to register now, so please pass the word to your new neighbors.
 
 
On another note, we will have a drive through orientation on Thursday, August 20 where ONLY campus learning students can get teacher assignments, car tags, bus routes, and purchase school shirts. Please remain in your car and wear your mask as you drive through the various orientation stations. Please be patient as we all work through this new adventure together. The schedule will be as follows:
Kindergarten and 5th grade students time will be 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.
1st and 3rd will be from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
2nd and 4th will be from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Head Start/PreK will be at 11 a.m.
 
Students enrolled in e learning will be contacted by your teacher on or before August 20 and they will be scheduling a “virtual” orientation for you and the drive through orientation is not required. Please make sure we have updated contact information. All the laptops need to be returned right away for updates.
 
Please stay tuned to our Facebook page, Class Dojo, and our website for updates.
 
 
 
Buenas tardes Familias de Sleepy Hill Elementary, este es el Sr. Deal llamando con algunos anuncios. Nos estamos preparando para comenzar la escuela el lunes 24 de agosto a través del aprendizaje regular en el campus de la escuela, así como a través del aprendizaje electrónico usando la computadora. A medida que se realizan los preparativos finales, nos gustaría asegurarnos de que comprendan completamente las diferencias en sus opciones. Según el modelo de aprendizaje del campus (o en la escuela), los estudiantes y los maestros asistirán a la escuela normalmente, siguiendo las pautas de los CDC y usando máscaras durante todo el día. Según el modelo de aprendizaje electrónico por computadora, los estudiantes y los maestros seguirán un horario estricto como lo harían si vinieran a la escuela normalmente. Se requiere que los estudiantes tengan una presencia diaria en línea de 7:45 a.m. a 2:45 p.m. para ser considerado para asistencia y participación. La tercera opción era retirar a su hijo de Sleepy Hill e inscribirlo en Polk Virtual, donde el horario para el aprendizaje electrónico puede ser más flexible. En este punto, se han hecho selecciones y estamos creando horarios y listas de clases. Asegúrese de sentirse cómodo con su elección. Cualquier cambio o reconsideración de su elección debe hacerse antes del viernes 7 de agosto. Todavía estamos esperando que unas 140 personas hagan su selección o serán inscritos como estudiantes en el campus de la escuela. Por favor llame a la oficina de la escuela al 863.815.6768. Los nuevos estudiantes deben registrarse ahora, así que por favor pase la voz a sus familiares y vecinos.
 
 
Por otro lado, tendremos una orientación el jueves 20 de agosto, donde los estudiantes que aprenderan en el campus de la escuela vendran solamente para obtener asignaciones de sus maestros, las identificaciones de automóviles, rutas de autobuses y comprar camisetas escolares. Permanezca en su automóvil y use su máscara mientras conduce por las diferentes estaciones de orientación. Tenga paciencia mientras todos trabajamos juntos en esta nueva aventura. El horario de los alumnos de kindergarten y quinto grado será de 8 a.m. a 9 a.m. Primero y tercero será de 9 a.m. a 10 a.m. Segundo y cuarto será de 10 a.m. a 11 a.m. Pre-K será a las 11 a.m. Los estudiantes inscritos en e learning (o aprendizaje electronico) serán contactados con su maestro el 20 de agosto o antes y programarán una orientación “virtual” (por internet) para usted y no se requiere que usted venga a la orientación del dia 20 de agosto.. Asegúrese de tener información de contacto actualizada. Todas las otras computadoras portátiles deben devolverse de inmediato para ser actualizadas.
