Update: School Work During Closing

Updated on 3/16

During the time school is not in session, we want to do everything we can to ensure learning continues for our students.

Materials can also be accessed at this link on the JCPS website.

If you missed Friday, we have your packets available for pick up.

Goldsmith students have access to online learning through Google Classroom and Clever. They have their user ID and passwords in their agenda.

Your students have access to online eBooks in English and Spanish as well as informational articles and videos.  Students are used to accessing these materials through our library web page.

The Ed Tech industry has responded to the unexpected closures by offering free trials to many services. Some of the most appealing can be found here.  If that list is overwhelming, start with the items that are already available on our page, in Google Classroom and Clever, and/or Scholastic.

It’s also important that student take a break from screens as well.  Outside play (with safe distance from friends) is still important and there are a lot of non-screen activities for younger kids  as well as older kids that will help your students fill their day.

Hope all of our Goldsmith friends stay healthy. Let us know how you are doing by posting to our school Facebook page.

Notice from JCPS

Important Notice to Parents and Employees

UPDATED March 12, 2020

 

Dear JCPS Families,

Our first priority as a school district is to provide a safe, healthy environment for your child to learn. But, as you know, we are facing a worldwide pandemic with Coronavirus (COVID-19). With that in mind and with direction from the Governor and health experts, we are CLOSING ALL JCPS SCHOOLS BEGINNING MONDAY, MARCH 16th and continuing through the end of Spring Break. Classes are scheduled to resume on Monday, April 6.

While we are calling off classes beginning next week, JCPS SCHOOLS WILL BE OPEN TOMORROW – FRIDAY, MARCH 13th. We encourage you to send your child to school tomorrow, engage in classes, get homework from their teachers and pick up hard copies of supplemental educational materials that will allow them to continue their learning while school is out. This material will be available on our website and in students’ digital Backpacks tomorrow.

If you have health concerns, and decide to keep your student at home, this will be considered an excused absence with a parent note.

JCPS will be providing lunch to students during the closure.  To see a full list of locations serving lunch, click here.

We have developed a list of frequently asked questions.  You can read more details here  

Please rest assured that JCPS staff will be doing additional cleaning and sanitizing of all of our buildings to prevent the spread of this virus.

We appreciate you entrusting your child with JCPS and the committed staff who care about our kids.
