Weekly Update- April 17, 2020

Good afternoon, East Rutherford Middle School Students and Families

Today is Friday, April 17th 2020.  I hope you had the opportunity to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather during Spring Break. Our teachers are looking forward to connecting with you next week via Canvas and Zoom. Don’t forget to check your Canvas courses for updated information regarding assignments, lesson videos and times to Zoom your teachers. On Monday, April 20th, at 8:00 AM the next round of lessons and assignments starting with day 17 will post to Canvas. Before Spring Break you should have completed lessons and assignments up to day 16. If you need help submitting your assignments or have questions regarding the work from day 1 - 16 please reach out to your teachers via Canvas or email. You can always call the school or email me at lwalker@rcsnc.org for support. Don’t forget we have a tech team that is available Monday through Friday to help you navigate your iPad or Canvas. You can call the tech team at 828-288-2234 on Monday - Thursday from 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM and Friday 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Thank you to the students and families who have stopped by East Rutherford Middle School to pick up a free lunch and breakfast. We are serving meals Monday - Friday from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Our child nutrition staff have been working very hard each day. This week they served 4, 262 nutritious meals. They enjoy preparing and packing meals for you each day. I too have enjoyed seeing your smiles and waves each day during the food pick up times. Students keep working hard on your assignments and stay positive. You’ve got this!  Don’t forget you are capable of doing anything as long as you stay positive. You are loved and missed! Parents please keep up the fantastic work too. We are here to help. If you need anything, please reach out to your child’s teacher or call the school. Students I will continue to check in on you during remote learning. I have been making home visits, calling parents and sending out postcards so we can stay connected. Stay safe and healthy Vikings!
