Hello Parents/Guardians

We want to ensure that students are completing assignments on google classroom. Were you aware that the students needed to log onto google classroom and complete assignment each day?

Did you know that the student can use a cell phone to complete assignments instead of a computer?

Did your child pick up a packet at the breakfast/lunch location at Pointe South Elementary School?

Please ask your child to log into rapid identity. They do this about 3 times a day at school so they should know the information.

Their assignments are in the teacher’s classroom. If you have any problems with assignments, the please refer to the schedule  and contact your students homeroom teacher.

PSMS Digital Learning Daily Schedule

PSMS will assign one core subject for each day of the week. The following courses will be paired with another core subject: Health/PE, CTAE, World Language, Fine Arts

○ Monday - Language Arts/Language Live (6-12) & Band or Orchestra

○ Tuesday - Social Studies, Spanish, & Family and Consumer Science

○ Wednesday - Mathematics/Math 180  or Technology

○ Thursday - Science and Health or PE

○ Friday - Make-up/Catch-up

Make Up Day: Complete and post any assignment that you may have missed for the week. (Caution): This is not the day to try to complete all assignments for the week as this would be very overwhelming and you would be successful in doing so)

Scholars may complete assignments daily where needed, but individual subject assignments will only be posted twice per week (see the schedule listed above). Scholars if you have questions, please send your teacher a message. Scholars, please refrain from sending individual personal messages on Google Classroom, for example: “what’s up y’all.” Only respond to a professor’s post if a response/answer is required or reply if you have a question to ask that needs a professor response that is related to the assignment.
