Dear Elk Grove Unified Parents and Families,
This week is spring break and a non-instructional week for Elk Grove Unified with 10 days before we start secondary level distance learning and only 14 days away from beginning elementary level distance learning. In today’s update, we will share information about our revised enrollment process, remind everyone about checking out a Chromebook and hopefully address some of the safeguard questions about Zoom.
During school closures, Elk Grove Unified will continue welcoming and enrolling students for this school year and take enrollment for the 2020/2021 school year. While our schools remain closed to the public, we have developed the following process for welcoming and enrolling your child in school:
If your student really needs a Chromebook, go to your home EGUSD high school: Cosumnes Oaks High School, Elk Grove High School, Florin High School, Franklin High School, Laguna Creek High School, Monterey Trail High School, Pleasant Grove High School, Sheldon High School and Valley High School
For health and safety, the Chromebook check-out will be a drive-thru process to adhere to social distancing guidance.
Student(s) must be present in the car to receive the device – 1 per student maximum
Please write on a paper, have or know the Student ID number for each student
April 7th: Grades 5 & 6
April 8th: Grades 3 & 4
April 9th: Grades 1 & 2
TIP: Because elementary students usually don’t have ID cards, please write your student’s ID on a piece of paper for quicker service at the check-out line.
Parents have asked about Elk Grove Unified’s approach to safety amidst concerns of recent “Zoombombing”. EGUSD is working to maintain a safe learning environment and has taken several steps to mitigate unwarranted disruptions in a class Zoom. First, distance learning will predominantly be asynchronous. This means that students primarily will be completing coursework off-line. In preparation for a class Zoom, safeguards are in place technologically and teachers are receiving explicit instructions for app use. These safeguards will also be addressed for other applications like Google Meet.
EGUSD School Meals: Elk Grove Unified’s school meal drive-thru and grab-n-go service continues this week from April 6th – April 9th (extra meals will be provided to families on the 9th as no meal service will occur on Friday the 10th.)
Thank you. Please stay safe, stay healthy and stay home as much as you can. Remember to subscribe to the Elk Grove Unified School District’s YouTube Channel.
EGUSD Leadership – We will get through this.
