Dear WH Taylor Parents/Guardians,
Norfolk Public Schools is dedicated to providing opportunities for students to continue learning during this period of school closures. The Department of Curriculum & Instruction has created Learning in Place plans for all subjects in every grade level to ensure students are provided with learning experiences while they are away from school.
Learning packets with multiple lessons and activities for every subject will be available on the Norfolk Public Schools website beginning Tuesday, March 17th. Visit the Norfolk Public Schools website (www.npsk12.com) and click on “Learning in Place Plans.” Select your child’s appropriate level (elementary, middle or high school), and then select the grade level (Pre-K through 5) or the content area for middle and high school. You will find learning activities for Reading/English, History, Math, Science, and all of the resource areas and electives (Art, Health, Foreign Language, and Music).
In addition, all of our K-5 Teachers at WH Taylor have set up Google Classroom websites. If you have web access, please use this tool to stay in constant contact with your child’s teacher. Teachers will also be posting links to our digital learning platforms to enhance the packet materials that the district has provided. If you prefer to work from paper, the Learning in Place plan will be available for pick up from WH Taylor on Tuesday, March 17th from 9 – 4pm. Please call the school if you have specific concerns or needs. We will do our best to work with you.
Paper copies of the Learning in Place plans can also be obtained where Grab-n-Go meals will be served from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. beginning Tuesday, March 17th, through Friday, March 27th (weekdays only). The meal service locations will be: Azalea Garden Middle School, Booker T. Washington High School, Camp Allen Elementary, Coleman Place Elementary, James Monroe Elementary, Lake Taylor School, Norview Elementary, Oceanair Elementary, P.B. Young Elementary, Southside STEM Academy, Suburban Park Elementary and St. Helena Elementary.
Please remind your child(ren) how important it is to complete their Learning in Place plans before they return to school. We deeply appreciate your patience and support during this challenging time!
I am always available via email to support you and your family at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care, stay healthy and give your children a “fist bump” from their teachers here at W.H. Taylor
