Hillcrest Switches to Asynchronous Virtual Learning for Jan. 12-14

  • Hillcrest Elementary School Families,

    OKCPS school and district leaders have been monitoring COVID-19 cases and staff and student absences over the weekend. Unfortunately, we continue to see a significant number of our teachers, instructional staff and students out across the district due to illness or other circumstances. The difficult decision has been made to move Hillcrest Elementary to asynchronous learning for January 12th through 14th.

    As a reminder, asynchronous instruction means that students will log in to Canvas and complete lessons and assignments on their own. Teachers may provide materials for reading, videos to view, notes to study, assignments to complete, activities, assessments, or allow for independent work time. We believe this will allow our families as much flexibility as possible as students can log in and complete the daily assignments in a self-paced manner at any time during the day or evening. It is important that all students login and complete your assignments each day in order to be counted present. 

    Beginning Wednesday, families are encouraged to log-in for a short meeting with your child’s teacher each day sometime between 8:20 - 9:00am to discuss the day’s expectations and so the teacher can answer any questions you may have. 

    Please watch closely for any additional information that may come from your child’s teacher or your school’s principal in the next several days.  

    If your student is having device or connectivity issues, please call the OKCPS Help Desk at 405-587-HELP (4357) Monday through Friday from 7:30am - 4:30pm to receive assistance. 

    If our staffing levels and COVID-19 case data shows we can bring students back to in-person learning sooner than Tuesday, January 18th, we will let families know as soon as possible. As a reminder, schools and offices will be closed on Monday, January 17th to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

    As a reminder, curbside meal service, including a breakfast and a lunch, will be available at no cost to students at Hillcrest Elementary School (6421 Miller Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73159) from 10:30am - 12:30pm each day.

    If at any time your student becomes ill or develops symptoms of COVID-19 -- even while they are home for virtual learning -- please go ahead and call the school at 405-587-3800 for further instructions. 

    The health and safety of our students and staff is a top priority and we thank you for your continued support of OKCPS.

     


    Hillcrest Cambia al Aprendizaje Virtual Asincrónico del 12 al 14 de Enero

    Familias de la Escuela Hillcrest,

    Los líderes escolares y del distrito de OKCPS han estado monitoreando los casos de COVID-19 y las ausencias del personal y de los estudiantes durante el fin de semana. Desafortunadamente, estamos viendo un gran número de nuestros maestros, personal de instrucción y estudiantes fuera en todo el distrito debido a la enfermedad u otras circunstancias. Se ha tomado la difícil decisión de cambiar la escuela Hillcrest Elementary al aprendizaje remoto asincrónico del 12 al 14 de enero. 

    Como recordatorio, la instrucción asincrónica significa que los estudiantes se conectarán a Canvas y completarán las lecciones y tareas por su cuenta. Los maestros pueden proporcionar materiales para leer, videos, apuntes para estudiar, tareas para completar, actividades, exámenes, o permitir el tiempo de trabajo independiente. Creemos que esto permitirá a nuestras familias la mayor flexibilidad posible, ya que los estudiantes pueden iniciar sesión y completar las tareas diarias en su propio horario, de manera  independiente en cualquier momento del día o de la noche. Es importante que todos los estudiantes se conecten y completen sus tareas cada día para que se les cuente como presentes. 

    A partir del miércoles, se anima a las familias a que se conecten a una breve reunión con el maestro de su estudiante cada día entre las 8:20 y las 9:00 de la mañana para discutir las expectativas del día y para que el maestro pueda responder cualquier pregunta que pueda tener. 

    Por favor, esté atento a cualquier información adicional que pueda venir del maestro de su hijo o del director de su escuela en los próximos días.  

    Si su estudiante tiene problemas con la computadora o la conectividad, por favor llame al 405-587-HELP (4357) de lunes a viernes de 7:30 am a 4:30 pm para recibir asistencia técnica. 

    Si nuestros niveles de personal y los datos del caso COVID-19 muestran que podemos regresar al aprendizaje en persona antes del martes 18 de enero, se lo haremos saber a las familias tan pronto como sea posible. Como recordatorio, las escuelas y las oficinas estarán cerradas el lunes, 17 de enero para honrar el Día de Martin Luther King Jr. 

    Les recordamos que el servicio de comidas para llevar, que incluye el desayuno y  almuerzo, estará disponible sin costo alguno para los estudiantes en la escuela Hillcrest Elementary (6421 Miller Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73159) de 10:30am - 12:30pm cada día.

    Si en cualquier momento su estudiante se enferma o desarrolla síntomas de COVID-19 - incluso mientras están en casa para el aprendizaje virtual - por favor llame a la escuela al 405-587-3800 para más instrucciones. 

    La salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y del personal es una de nuestras prioridades principales y le agradecemos por su apoyo continuo a OKCPS.

Welcome to Hillcrest Elementary!
