Follow up Information

As you may remember from this week's Ephesus Newscast, this week is School Safety and Digital Citizenship week! 

  1. Here are some resources the district has shared with schools to use during this week: District Created 20-21 Safe School Week Handouts. Our grade level classrooms will not use all handouts and/or activities this week as we are now learning remotely for this first semester but now you can participate at home, if desired.  
  2. Also, don't forget that being a good digital citizen means we are being responsible and respectful online and when using technology. Even though we're celebrating this week, we know it’s important for students to work on this every week, especially during remote learning. Please see the attachments for family tips from Common Sense Media Education on how to help kids handle mean behavior they may run into online.
  3. Also, attached to my Principal email is a SAMPLE copy of the Standards Based Report Card (SBR) that you will receive for your child via email on October 29th.
