Dear Families, 

 

As you likely saw in yesterday’s communications from the district, Oldham County has moved into the red category on the state’s Covid-19 Incident Rate map. We will begin NTI on Friday, November 13 and stay in NTI through Friday, December 4. While this is not our preferred method of instruction, it is necessary to keep our community and kids safe. During this time, Eagles’ Nest will also be closed in order to curb any potential spread of the virus. Even when we’re in NTI, it is imperative that parents report positive test results and quarantines to their school during NTI.  As a reminder, VLA students will remain on their VLA schedule during this time. Those current VLA students who have signed up for “in person” instruction in Trimester 2 will instead transition to NTI with their in-person instructor beginning on November 23rd. You will be hearing from your “in person” teacher on Monday, November 16th.

How will I know what my student needs to complete? 

Access the school hub HERE. The link will take you to a school grid, where you can select your students' grade level. Here you will find the activities.  Daily participation is required by every student for attendance. More importantly though, students need to complete the work in order to continue their academic success.  

 

How will my student receive their materials?

Instruction will be delivered online by your student’s teacher(s) and can be accessed digitally at the school hub site (Seesaw for K-2 and Google Classroom for 3-5).  Students will receive direct instruction from their teacher, have time to work independently and submit their work for feedback. There will also be regular online class meetings to support students’ social and emotional development as well.  For those families borrowing devices, please be aware that you need to use your own Internet safeguards with those devices. To block unwanted content at school on student devices we have a proxy server, but when those devices are hooked up to the Internet in a different location there are no safeguards.  You must be vigilant about what your students are accessing, and apply the appropriate safeguards that you deem necessary, as this is a school device. Content accessed should only be pertinent to school work.   

 

What if my student needs to borrow a device or needs tech support?

If your student needs a device to use during NTI, please fill out this form.  Fill out the form once for each student.  Devices will be sent home with students on Thursday, November 12.  If you have any questions contact leslie.wolf@oldham.kyschools.us.  If your family needs tech support during NTI, please submit a remote ticket at this link: https://oldham.incidentiq.com/guest/2B7RC97S/ocs-remote-support-ticketing.  For information about usernames and passwords for online resources, please visit the Camden website.   

 

What if my child needs help?

Teachers will be working every day even though school is not in person. They will be available to support you every day. Your teacher will make you aware of their availability.  You can reach them through email. Their email address can be located at the top of the lessons or on our school website.

 

How does my student turn in their work?

Your student will turn in materials as they complete them online.  Primary teachers (K-2) will use Seesaw, Related Arts will use FlipGrid, and Intermediate teachers (3-5) will use Google Classroom.   

 

What if my student needs supplies they do not have at home?

If your child does not have the necessary supplies at home to complete an assignment, please email the teacher as soon as possible so that we can help you resolve the problem.

 

What if my student is home without support to complete their assignments? 

The teacher will be posting daily videos and will be online daily for your student to receive their instruction, which should alleviate you from having to do it.  As we know, young children will need prompting to complete work, so that is where they may need support. However, if you are struggling, please contact us and we are always happy to help. 

 

During this period of increased community spread, we ask that you follow COVID-19 guidelines such as limiting social gatherings, staying home when ill, quarantining if exposed to a person who tests positive, and wearing facial coverings when out in the community. Doing these things will greatly increase the likelihood of lowering our incidence rate and transitioning back to in-person instruction.  We know this is hard, but we are keeping our focus on what’s most important: 1) the health and safety of our Camden Community, and 2) the continued academic engagement of our students.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of service in any way.  

 

Sincerely, 

 

Stu Martin, Principal
