Palermo Consolidated School Panther News                                               10/26/2020 SCHOOL NEWS: On Saturday, I emailed parents to let them know that, despite Waldo County being designated Yellow by the Department of Education, we will continue with our current school schedule.  The superintendent and I continue to monitor the Covid 19 cases in the county and will let you know if we feel the risk for Palermo Consolidated has increased.   Parent Teacher Conferences: November 2nd and November 4th: 2:45 - 6:30pm. *We will hold PT conferences by Zoom, by phone, or through email.

From the Principal’s Desk:      Considering the designation of Yellow for Waldo County, it is important to keep everyone up to date on the vision of academic procedures of the hybrid structure or full remote structure.  Bright Space is a platform that will be used to provide parents with one place to access all the students academic assignments.  It is expected that Bright Space will be up and running soon.  I do not expect that navigating Bright Space will be very difficult for students in 5th through 8th grade.  We will be practicing these skills once it is up and running.   On the other hand, students in kindergarten through 4th grade will require more coaching and support.  We are waiting to receive a shipment of Chromebooks which will allow us to help practice these skills with the students.   Additionally, we understand that the younger students may require paper packets and this will be delivered or available for pick up.  As always, we continue to keep our fingers crossed that we can stay in school! If you have any questions please feel free to contact your teacher or me. Mrs. Oliphant

Nov 25th, 26th, 27th - No school - Thanksgiving break. From the Principal’s Desk: On Friday the state has designated our county as GREEN. Our teachers continue to plan for the possibility that our schools will have a hybrid model (yellow designation) at some time this school year. The hybrid model has students attending school for only two days a week. Half the students would come to school Monday and Tuesday - the other half of students would attend Thursday and Friday. Wednesday would be a remote learning day for all. IF this hybrid model is necessary, we will inform you of the schedule and expectations. It is important to know that all students are expected to complete school work that is assigned. The state is requiring that we take attendance and that students who do not complete work will be considered truant. Our school staff will work with everyone to make sure that they have access to learning and can complete work that is required. We will be using the platform Bright Space to present materials, videos, lessons, and communication. If we need to use Bright Space as our educational tool, I will provide all parents and students with training on how to log on and access the material. Teachers will start introducing Bright Space to students very soon. Parents of younger students will likely have a combination of paper packets and materials on Bright Space.
