Hello Frank Zeek Families!

Welcome back everyone!  We are excited to start the 2020/2021 school year! We are starting this year in distance learning. I know that there are mixed feelings about this and our staff definitely looks forward to being able to have our students back on campus. Right now, this is the safest option and we are ready! All of us have been hard at work learning new approaches, becoming even better at the great strategies we used in the past, and planning effective and engaging instruction for all of our students.

Your child’s teacher should be contacting you to introduce themselves and set an appointment for you and your child to pick up academic materials. At that time, you will check out a Chromebook for your child to use. It is critical that you and your child know how to log on and go to the programs in use at their grade level. The teacher will go over this with you but please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any help. The online classroom will start at 8:00am and attendance is required.

Please follow all health guidelines when on campus including wearing masks and social distancing. Please do not come to campus if you are ill. Call the office and we will make arrangements to get your supplies to you.

 Please log to your AERIES Parent Portal and update your account. Communication from Frank Zeek will occur most often on Wednesdays and will be via text and email. (AERIES phone call communication will be used only in high priority situations.)

Setting up a designated area for your child to do their school work is very important. It provides a sense of structure and also communicates to them that you value school. We want to help with that so we have purchased student materials kits for at home success! Each student will receive supplies that can help you set up a well-stocked learning area! These kits will be with your child’s Chromebook and academic materials at your pick up appointment.

We appreciate our partnership with you and are grateful that you trust your children to us. Our mission at Frank Zeek is to make sure our students thrive! This is quite a different type of schooling but we still believe very much that, together, we can make this happen!
