During Stage 4, I will be assisting classroom teachers and therefore will need to initiate another change for library policies. As you already know, library time has ended. With the transition into Stage 4, there will not be book check out and curbside pick up of books. If you wanted to drop off your books, you could park in the front lot and enter the lobby. Next to the table, you will see a teal cart for book drop off. All you have to do is put the books on the cart. If you are a attending school in-person, you could drop your books off with your classroom teachers. Speaking of book returns, all students with books checked out will soon get a notice of what books are checked out and it would be great if they are all returned by April 2nd (right before Spring Break). Please make an effort to locate the books and return them by April 2nd. During this time, I will evaluate and consider the time I have and see if book checkout could happen after Spring Break. I will keep you posted!
In the mean time, there will be Seesaw library activities for each grade level for each week. Please visit your specials Seesaw classes and participate in the activities.
It would be great to have thirty-second video clips of what you are doing in your classrooms. Make a thirty second video of yourself completing a school-related activity or a "Did you know?" segment about something you learned.
If interested and it is okay with your parents/guardians, please upload your videos into your Google Drive and share it with Mr. Chrobak.
