We want to do everything possible to support students and parents during this challenge time. Here are options for support while we are in comprehensive distance learning:
Teacher Office Hours (Zoom links in Friday teacher emails)
Level 1: Eva:8-9 a.m. Wednesdays; Karen 4-5 p.m. Tuesdays (please RSVP to Karen at email@example.com)
Level 2: 3-4 p.m. Wednesdays
Level 3: 10:30-11:30 a.m. Wednesdays
Level 4: 11 a.m.-12 p.m. Wednesdays Office hours are a great time to drop in to chat with your students’ teachers about any questions or concerns. If you’d like to schedule a private time during office hours, please email your student’s teacher to make arrangements.
Study Halls & Tutoring for Levels 3 & 4:It’s stressful for parents if students are struggling academically. There is extra academic support available through study halls and tutoring for students in Level 3 and 4. Please see student schedules for the study hall schedule and a link to sign up for tutoring, which is by appointment.
At-Home Learning Coach Support: FGCS has contracted with Angela Lorenzo, an experienced at-home learning coach to provide strategies and support to parents during distance learning. She’s a tremendous resource and a great sounding board. If you’d like to arrange to meet by phone or on Zoom with Angela, please contact principal Vanessa Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org.
School Counselor: We know some students are struggling with depression, anxiety, low motivation, feelings of isolation and other social/emotional/behavioral concerns. We encourage parents to reach out to our school counselor, Theresa Richters, at email@example.com, to talk about options for support and resources.
Tech Support:If quick fixes like refreshing the page and restarting the Chromebook don’t work, contact Karen at 971-226-2791 (text your name & student’s name) or firstname.lastname@example.org. A text message is the fastest way to get in touch and she’s always on standby for tech support during the school day, so don’t hesitate to reach out.
General Questions: Contact principal Vanessa Gray at email@example.com or director of operations Karen Torry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
