Vice Principals Corner

Hi Everyone!!! Each month I will be adding some tidbits or information that I find will be helpful to you as parents as we forge ahead in this crazy school year!!

For the month of January its about attendance.  

Did you know that even if your child doesn't attend the google meet in the morning they can still do work asynchronously in the afternoon and receive credit for the day?

Did you know that after 20 days absent a student could be held back a grade?

Did you know that missing 10% of a school year (18 days) before grade 3 can lead to never mastering the art of reading?

DID YOU KNOW THAT EVERYONE AT DRIGGS IS HERE TO HELP YOU IN ANY WAY WE CAN? PLEASE REACH OUT TO US!

Please be our partner in making sure your child is on their google meet everyday or does the asynchronous work in the afternoons.  Please be our partner in communicating the needs of your child and yourself so that we can work together in providing the best education we can for your child.  In the end that is what matters.

 

You can reach me anytime on parent square or email kpinho@waterbury.k12.ct.us

 

Be safe and I look forward to working with you!!

Kelly Pinho
