Remote Learning Family/Public Update 5/22/20 👋Reach Out To Your Student’s Teacher: Attendance or Otherwise Each Friday, we take attendance at OTES for the week. In order for your student to be marked as present for the week, we must have documentation of their work. This documentation can come in many forms from online work submission, to pictures, a phone conversation, an email, or a message. If you have concerns about work completion or if circumstances are making it challenging to complete work, please reach out to your student’s teacher about this as well. We have many resources to support you! Also, if at any time your student makes up work at a later date, please contact the teacher! Make up packets from past weeks are available at OTES. 🇺🇸Memorial Day School buildings will be closed and no required work will be assigned on Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day. If you usually pick up a packet on Monday, packet pick up will be available at AES, OTES and VRS on Tuesday, May 26th from 8am-2pm.

Remote Learning Family/Public Update 5/18/20 📚Library Book Return OTES Library books (the books your students checked out from our school library before the physical school closure) can be returned to the vestibule at OTES Monday through Friday 8am to 2pm. 📥In Case You Forgot… If you have not let your student’s teacher know about their work completion for last week, please do so as soon as possible so your student can be marked present. This also goes for any make up work your student completes. Let their teacher know and we will update their attendance! 🗣We Are Here for You! We understand that this is a time of many difficulties, among them, supporting your student’s learning at home. IT IS OUR JOB TO HELP YOU! Here is where to get the help you need: Your student’s teacher can help you access learning materials, understand assignments, and give tips or support for managing work time and effort. They can also connect you with support staff in specific subjects. Reach out to your student’s teacher via phone, email, or messaging. Our counselors are available at trysha.lunn@rsu34.org (K and 1st) or vicki.wilcox@rsu34.org (2nd-5th). They can help you with social-emotional concerns, as well as some behavioral and family supports. They are great at connecting you to resources or being a listening ear. Our nurse is available at cece.costello@rsu34.org or via voicemail at 827-1544 ext 308 for concerns about your student’s health or questions related to health. Remember, if you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911. If you have questions about meal pickup or delivery or questions about reapplying for free and reduced lunch status if your income has changed, please call our Food Service Department at 827-3908. Regardless, all meals are currently free for all children 0-18. If you are in need of food for household goods beyond school meals, please contact jennifer.goodwin@rsu34.org or 370-8564. If you have a general school question or are not sure where to turn, email jeanna.tuell@rsu34.org or maggie.mitchell@rsu34.org or call the school at 827-1544 and we will do our best to help you.
