**Survey – Have you completed the survey about in-person or virtual learning? Today, Friday, December 4, is the last day to complete the survey that allows families to change their decision of in-person or virtual learning for the 2nd semester. The survey is accessible at mnps.org/decision-survey . Please know that the survey only needs to be completed if you wish to change your response from earlier this year. Please see the attached letter with more details and important considerations for making this decision. Surveys need to be complete by December 4th so that we can plan for any teacher and/or schedule changes that may be required based upon these results.
**Returning Work – All work / spelling tests and homework for this week and next should be returned Wednesday, Dec. 16. The book,Me . . . Jane, should be returned as well. We will send more information closer to time.
**Chat – Please remind your child they are not allowed to use the chat feature on Teams. We have already talked to them about this, but we would appreciate it if you would remind them. Several students have been using the chat feature and it is showing up on other teachers’ Teams meetings. Thank you for your help with this.
**Our students – Our students have been amazing this week! (They are much more resilient than adults sometimes.) They all have done a great job remembering how to navigate Teams. We are so proud of their participation and focus while we are virtual.
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
The First Grade Team
