Coronavirus Update March 20, 2020
Greetings Randolph Community,
What a week in Randolph! In the last five days Randolph Public Schools has served over 1,225 meals to Randolph children, distributed 39 Blessings in a Backpack, 230 computer devices, and 25 wifi hotspots. We are working with local organizations to acquire more computer devices for families. If you are in need, please email email@example.com. Keep in mind this platform is also accessible via smart phones.
We are working to increase our meal distribution to families by delivering to several of the housing complexes starting next week. We will update you with more information regarding delivery sites on Monday, March 23. We may be seeking community volunteers to support meal distribution at these drop off sites. Please stay tuned for further information from our Family Resource Center.
Schools may be closed in MA but the learning never stops in Randolph! Over 300 educators were together virtually this week on Google Meet learning and sharing ideas! Kudos to our students and their families for taking ownership for their learning! We currently have 969 active Google Classrooms in the district. This week, 2,719 unique users (this is staff and students) signed into Google Classroom. Clever backpack (only available K-5) is also quite active, with 669 unique student sign-ons in the last 7 days, 31 unique teacher sign-ons. This is roughly 45% of all elementary students. Thanks to our incredible educators for stepping up and into innovation! Stay inspired Randolph!
Remember learning launches officially March 23rd on Google Classroom. Caregivers may use this link to understand how to use Google Classroom: Parent’s Guide to Google Classroom. Learning for all students will be posted in Google Classroom each day by 9am. Please email your child’s teacher if you need help. Keep in mind this platform is accessible via smart phones!
