Gotha Update - Week of 3/30/2020

Hello, Gotha Families.  I am sending my weekly update early so that you have some time to look through Canvas for teacher updates, if you haven’t already, and plan for some scheduled live meeting times some of your teachers may be providing. 

I am excited to get next week started and really dig into this distance learning plan.  I have received some emails and calls regarding teacher contact this week. Not all teachers called or emailed, but all updated their Canvas courses with their plans for the upcoming week.  Please have your student check his or her Canvas courses for updates and assignments.  

For this week, Monday and Tuesday we are following a “bell schedule” of sorts.  Some of our teachers are going live during this time to provide live instruction.  Following this schedule will allow some structure and protected time for students to work on one course at a time.  


Wednesday through Friday some teachers may offer additional live lessons, some will provide chat rooms and open webinars for students to ask questions.  Each teacher will be available three hours per day for students. That schedule is available here: Gotha Teacher Office Hours 

Again, please refer to each teacher’s Canvas course for specific details.  

Parents may access 3rd quarter report cards on March 30, 2020 by going to the “Student Portfolio” on Skyward Family Access.  If parents need assistance in navigating Skyward Family Access, please review the documentation  link found on the OCPS website. If parents would like a printed copy, they can contact the school and request that a copy be printed and mailed.  

Please stay connected to the school.  Follow us on Social Media. We update with information almost daily.

We really want to continue to work with you through this very different time for education.  We’d LOVE to see the kids learning digitally. If you have pictures to share, consider posting them on Facebook or Instagram, tagging the school and using the hashtag #gothafromhome.  You can also email those to me.  We miss them!

As always, Be Nice - and remember, it’s a GREAT DAY TO BE A GRIZZLY!
