Wayland Elementary reminds families to complete the Health Portal each morning before arriving. Monday morning there were some technical issues, however, 173 students did not complete the app and therefore 173 temps had to be taken at school. The school does not have the capacity to monitor at this rate. Please be certain the APP is complete before the bus or departhing for school. Thank you: Portal Link: https://www.studentehr.com/
Reminder: Wayland-Cohocton transportation information needs to be filled out by the end of the day. The link to the form was sent home in an email regarding returning to classes four days per week. If you did not receive the email, please contact your child's school office.

Good afternoon! We are getting excited about a number of our remote only learners returning to in- person learning on Monday, February 1, 2021. In preparation we have put an orientation communication together for families and have set aside time if families are interested and available to tour our building. Please access the document below for more information: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1L4SvTrWjZbg6YhjhbWmNekOeEn6n7_m_/view?usp=sharing Sincerely, Theresa Carhart Principal
Dear Wayland-Cohocton Elementary Families, Last night our Superintendent, Eileen Feinman, sent a communication indicating that we were going to move to remote learning this coming week (Monday, December 21- Wednesday, December 23). Our third grade students began this journey a week ago and will continue doing so until the start of their holiday break (Thursday, December 24). To help the rest of our grade levels prepare for the days ahead, I wanted to send out the original communication our district sent in mid- November in the event we needed to shift to 100% Remote Instruction. Click on the web link below and review the helpful document entitled, "Family Information: Helpful Parent Videos & 100% Remote Plan highlights. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_moKVMXMofQILXp0TP1pnzH6uhdAk788/view?usp=sharing We know that our families and staff want to make sure our students receive the very best possible learning opportunities despite the challenges that this global pandemic is causing us. Please know our teachers and staff will be working very hard in a short period of time to shift our approach to meet your child's learning needs given the current circumstance. We know you are shifting things at home in a quick turnaround time as well and we want to say, "THANK YOU!" During our shift to 100% Remote Instruction, look to your child's teacher and service providers to provide a learning schedule and instructional activities/resources. Our Remote Learning Support Center Staff will work to set up virtual learning support for students who typically attend on Monday/Tuesday. Please know that on days your child would typically learn in person, your child's teaching team is working to schedule as much 'live' instruction or learning support as is possible using Google Meets. The level of this type of support will vary. Your child's teacher will let you know when they are able to start this and what your child's learning schedule will look like. As we move ahead, please be sure to keep these tidbits in mind: • All students are required to participate in daily instruction to include 'live' instruction as part of their schooling unless not in attendance due to being sick. Anything you can do to ensure your child has a location to learn that is as free from distraction as possible will be a great help! • We will continue to use ClassDojo as a platform for communication and instruction (up to grade 3). Google Classroom will continue to be used as a learning platform for students in grade 4. For Pre-K, look to the learning materials your child's teacher already sent home for the week. • Regardless of which Cohort your child is in, please complete the Remote Check in for each of your children Monday-Wednesday by 9 a.m. Use the appropriate link for each child (Pre-K thru Grade 4): https://drive.google.com/file/d/15GUKCWNcyj6bwy_Gw0R9KoA8eWsvE2Q8/view?usp=sharing • Daily submission of the health survey should be completed for each hybrid learner by 9 a.m., regardless of Cohort using the Snap Health Portal (web link: https://www.studentehr.com/). Hang in there, eagle families. We know this has not made things easier on you. The important thing to remember is to keep open communication between home and school, so we can help one another through this! #EagleStrong! Theresa A. Carhart Principal

Elementary Eagle Families, Our school district will be closed Wednesday, November 25th- Friday, November 27th for the Thanksgiving holiday. Below you will find helpful information on how to celebrate a safe Thanksgiving [Report from National Association of Elementary School Principals]. Many families across the nation will be celebrating Thanksgiving next week with their loved ones. However, with cases of coronavirus surging across the U.S., there is still a need to exercise caution around the holidays. Fortunately, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control provides detailed guidelines and sharable resources to help families understand and limit their risk of spreading coronavirus: *Celebrating Thanksgiving [English]: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/daily-life-coping/everyone_can_make_thanksgiving_safer.html.pdf *Consider Other Thanksgiving Activities [English]: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/daily-life-coping/consider_other_thanksgiving_activities.html.pdf *Celebrating Thanksgiving & Consider Other Thanksgiving Activities [Español]: https://espanol.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays/thanksgiving.html *Celebrating Thanksgiving & Considering Other Thanksgiving Activities [Accessible]: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays/thanksgiving.html We hope that you and your family enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday although the way we celebrate family and our time "together" might look different than what is typical amid our global pandemic. Your effort to celebrate safely will help us keep our doors open for in-person learning. Sincerely, Theresa A. Carhart Adam R. Button Elementary Principals

What a great drop off this morning for our Cohort B students who had their first in-person day! Thank you to all of the families for making it go so smoothly!
Happy first day of school, elementary eagle families! We are noticing that many off our families are off to a great start rocking the Remote Learning Daily Check-ins! Remember this attendance check in is for all students who are remote learning (100% Remote or Remote Days for Hybrid-Enrolled Students). When students are in person learning, we will take attendance using SchoolTool. If you have multiple elementary students in your household who are in different grade levels, please be sure to use the appropriate grade level attendance link for each of your students. You should not submit all your students' attendance information using the same form. We need to have attendance reported on the correct grade level in order to effectively and efficiently make student attendance in our SchoolTool system. Remote Learning Check-in Links: https://drive.google.com/file/d/15GUKCWNcyj6bwy_Gw0R9KoA8eWsvE2Q8/view?usp=sharing Cohocton Elementary School will be monitoring PreK attendance and Wayland Elementary School will be monitoring K-4 attendance each school day. Thank you so much for your help! Theresa Carhart Adam Button Wayland-Cohocton Elementary School Principals

Parents: Children should have their own masks/face coverings for school. School will provide masks/face coverings if a child does not have one when they arrive. They will most likely be the disposable style. (This is a clarification as the district has received many inquiries.)
School supplies are being purchased by the school. Families need only to provide sneakers and maybe a backpack. Lockers will not be used in the upper levels for the first few weeks. If you have specific questions regarding supplies/lockers please contact your child's building office.
This morning an email was sent out to all elementary families that was intended for PreK families. K-4 Elementary families can ignore the email about PreK Programming. We are sorry for the mistake.
