    PRHS Families, 

    Starting next Monday, March 30th, PRHS Teachers will be providing a more structured offering of educational opportunities to our students. We realize that not everyone will be able to be online exactly during class time so our offerings will be flexible, but we expect all students to check their UCPS email and their Teacher's canvas pages every day next week and the weeks ahead while we are conducting remote learning. Our teachers know that our students will need some flexibility AND we need to know if there are any obstacles to your child's participation. So if your child is having a problem logging in, or getting internet, or they need advice on how to handle at-home responsibilities while still continuing their learning - please ask them to reach out to a teacher, or a counselor, or an administrator and we will work to help them. We want each of our students to be prepared to master the major standards in their courses and our teachers will be providing them with review and exploration opportunities to practice and learn those standards starting next Monday, March 30th. This week our Advisory teachers will be sending your child an email to their UCPS account - please ask them to reply to it right away so that we know they are good to go.  If we don't hear from them we will try to make contact in another way.  If your child doesn't hear from an Advisor or teacher by Friday then they should email me directly with their contact info. Our teachers are so excited to get to work with our students more directly again - even if it is online!

    Please stay tuned for additional information each week regarding our learning plans, our next steps for spring registration and more.  We will be working to reschedule and preserve as many end-of-year traditions as we can, especially for our Seniors. Stay tuned for more information in that area as well.

    Parents remember that we are here to help.  Our district is serving free lunches at multiple sites, but the closest for us is Sardis Elementary.  Please take advantage of this if you need it.  If your family needs other assistance, our school counselors are ready to assist you in getting that help.  To make this easy we have a survey listed on our PRHS website under Quick Links that you can complete to let us know what you need.  Remember, just like we talk to our students about, we are #InItTogether!  

    We continue to think about our students and families every day.  Teachers are busy getting ready for this more structured learning next week and we appreciate all that you do to encourage your child to participate every day.  Also encourage them to listen to our daily announcements that we will post each morning on social media.

    Familias de Porter Ridge High School,

    A partir del proximo lunes 30 de marzo, los maestros de PRHS proporcionaran una oferta mas estructurada de oportunidades educativas a nuestros estudiantes. Tomamos en cuenta de que no todos podran estar en linea exactamente durante el horario de clase, por lo que nuestras ofertas seran flexibles, pero esperamos que todos los estudiantes revisen su correo electronico de UCPS y las paginas de Canvas de sus maestros todos los días la proxima semana y las proximas semanas mientras realizamos aprendizaje. Nuestros maestros saben que nuestros estudiantes necesitaran algo de flexibilidad y necesitamos saber si hay algun obstaculo para la participacion de su hijo. Entonces, si su hijo tiene problemas para iniciar sesion o para acceder a Internet, o necesita consejos sobre como manejar las responsabilidades en el hogar mientras continua su aprendizaje, soliciteles que se comuniquen con un maestro, un consejero o un administrador y trabajaremos para ayudarlos. Queremos que cada uno de nuestros estudiantes este preparado para dominar los estandares principales en sus cursos y nuestros maestros les daran oportunidades de revision y exploracion para practicar y aprender esos estandares a partir del próximo lunes 30 de Marzo. Esta semana, nuestros maestros enviaran a su hijo un correo electronico a su cuenta de UCPS. Por favor, pidales que respondan de inmediato para que sepamos que estan listos. Si no tenemos noticias de ellos, intentaremos contactarnos de otra manera. Si su hijo no tiene noticias de un maestro antes del viernes, entonces deben enviarme un correo electronico directamente con su informacion de contacto. Nuestros maestros estan muy emocionados de poder volver a trabajar con nuestros estudiantes mas directamente, incluso si esta en linea! 

    Esten atentos para obtener informacion adicional cada semana sobre nuestros planes de aprendizaje, nuestros proximos pasos para el registro de primavera y mas. Trabajaremos para reprogramar y preservar tantas tradiciones de fin de ano como podamos, especialmente para nuestros estudiantes que se graduaran pronto. Esten atentos para mas informacion en esa area tambien.

    Padres recuerdan que estamos aqui para ayudar. Nuestro distrito esta sirviendo almuerzos gratis en varios sitios, pero el mas cercano para nosotros es Sardis Elementary. Aproveche esto si lo necesita. Si su familia necesita otra ayuda, nuestros consejeros escolares estan listos para ayudarlos a obtener esa ayuda. Para facilitar esto, tenemos una encuesta en nuestro sitio web de PRHS debajo de “Quick Links” que puede completar para hacernos saber lo que necesita. Recuerde, al igual que hablamos con nuestros estudiantes, estamos en esto todos!

    Continuamos pensando en nuestros estudiantes y familias todos los dias. Los maestros estan ocupados preparandose para este aprendizaje mas estructurado la proxima semana y apreciamos todo lo que hace para ayudar a su hijo a participar todos los dias. Tambien los invitamos a escuchar nuestros anuncios diarios que publicaremos cada manana en las redes sociales.
