Principal's Message

EMS Learning Update

​Good afternoon parents/guardians,
Spring break ends today and we are preparing to return to teaching and learning - albeit now from home.  Teaching and learning from home will be something new for all of us - rest assured, we will get through.  You will be getting two emails today.  This email will outline the plan for students for April 6-9 (no learning April 10 - Good Friday).  The second email today will provide information on Google Classroom and Google Meet.  These are the tools that EMS has choosen to support online learning from home.
Please remember that the school is closed.  Access to the school is by appointment only.   If your student requires access to the building to pick up an essential life item from their locker before we schedule locker cleanout and pick up (see below), you will need to call the school during office hours and make an appointment.  No one will be admitted to the school without an appointment being made in advance.  If your child is sick and/or displays any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you stay home as you will not be admitted to the school.  Office hours are as follows:
Monday-Thursday: 800am-300pm
Friday: 800am-1pm
We are currently in the process of creating a schedule for students to come to EMS and pick up their personal belongings.  As per AHS and CBE guidelines, we must limit the number of people that are in the facility at one time.  Once the schedule is created and finalized, instructions for sign-up will be emailed to parents/guardians.
Next week, home room teachers will be reaching out to all students in their group to check-in and see how they are doing and to also ask questions around learning from home.  The information provided by students/parents/guardians is essential for us as we prepare the best possible learning experiences for EMS students moving forward.
***Teachers will be reaching out primarily by phone (email if they cannot get an answer to a phone call) between Monday-Wednesday next week.  It is imperative that you answer the phone and/or reply to the email that is sent.***  If your contact information has changed since the beginning of the year, please reply to me directly so I can update our records.
Teachers will be planning and preparing lessons and tasks for your children from April 6-9.  Online learning will commence Monday, April 13.  A detailed schedule will be emailed to parents, posted in Google Classroom and posted to the school website next week. 
Access to technology and the internet may be an issue for you.  Paper packages of assigned tasks will be made available only to students/families who do not have access to technology.  Devices that suppport Google Classroom/Meet are desktops, laptops, tablets, smart phones, Playstation/Xbox that can access the internet...the internet is also required.  As of now, we are still awaiting direction on the distribution of paper packages to students from the AHS and the CBE.  Once that is received, a pick-up and drop off schedule will be established for each grade.
I would like to thank you for your continued patience and support through these difficult times.  Teaching and learning online from home is something that very few of us have done before.  Please know that EMS staff are a hardworking, dedicated group of educators that will support your child(ren) through uncharted waters.
Kevin Godfrey Proud Principal Ernest Morrow School​
