Superintendent Tina McCoy and Principal Bob Bickford announce that the Principal’s Coffee Hours will be held remotely each week while students participate in online learning.
The meetings will continue to be held weekly on Thursdays from 9-10 a.m. while remote learning is in place. This will allow staff to be available to answer any questions and hear feedback while students are learning online.
Raymond schools will be closed until at least Friday, April 3. Remote learning began in the Raymond School District on Tuesday, March 17.
Once the schools re-open, the meetings will be held on the third Thursday of every month during the school year at the same time. Parents and guardians of middle school students will be able to attend the coffee hours either in person, through the Google Hangout or by phone.
Nearly two dozen people took part in the Thursday, March 19 call, asking questions and listening to questions about the remote learning directly from teachers and staff. Eighth grade math teacher Felicia Formisano presented how she and her colleagues are utilizing Google Classrooms.
“All the parents had nothing but positive things to say about the online learning environment,” Principal Bickford said. “They’ve been incredibly impressed with how the teachers have been able to engage with the kids so quickly.”
Those looking to join the calls should email Principal Bickford at [email protected] for the meeting link or if preferred, the phone number.
