Virtual Expectations for Spring 2021
School Superintendent Melissa Stilley says one lesson the Tangipahoa Parish School System has learned in 2020 is that virtual learning is here to stay, and as a result, all local public school students will participate in scheduled “virtual learning” days moving into the spring semester.
Families should implement these five best practice measures to encourage students success:
*Check Oncourse Connect to ensure your child’s assignments are being completed;
*Email your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns;
*Make sure your child wakes up and logs in on virtual days to keep the school schedule as “normal” as possible;
*Provide a designated work space for your child and encourage others in your home to respect the time designated for instruction, so students can focus and be engaged when participating in school activities;
*Check with the school to update your contact information so you can receive timely notifications about your student’s school plans.
Virtual Learning Days
Friday, December 18, 2020 will be a virtual day for all students. Employees are to report to their work sites.
All schools and offices will close at noon for the holidays and will reopen on Monday, January 4, 2021. January 4th is scheduled as a virtual day for teachers and students.
Nine (9), ten (10), and eleven (11)-month support workers (cafeteria workers, paraprofessionals, custodians, and school secretaries) will not work January 4, 2021, but will return Tuesday, January 5, 2021.
Students may be social distancing, but that hasn't stopped learning! Pictured are students in Ms. Votaw's 5th grade ELA class working together to analyze a letter written by Christopher Columbus.
Congratulations to O. W. Dillon teacher of the year Lorri Morgan! She was nominated by her co-workers at O. W. Dillon. Ms. Morgan teaches second grade. We appreciate all of her hard work!
On Friday, October 9th, O. W. Dillon staff and students wore pink to honor breast cancer survivors, including our own Bobbie Leathers, Lorri Morgan, Cynthia Hookfin, Kakie Hookfin, Kimberly Chapman, and Mary Gibson.
Please note: It is very important that all students bring their Chromebooks to school every day, fully charged. They are designed to last all day on a full charge. We cannot charge Chromebooks at school due to safety and fire codes.
O. W. Dillon masks are available to order, $8 for kids and $10 for adults.
