This is Mrs. Hunt, the principal of Hillside School. I want to thank you all for your continued patience as we are all trying to navigate this completely new way of learning. Overall, the response from the children has been exceptional. They are eager to learn and excited to connect with all of us. We recognize that some of the Google Classrooms are hard to navigate. The teachers and I are working to streamline things and create clearer directions when you first log in to each classroom. We appreciate the feedback we have received so far and will continue to adjust and update as needed.
I do want to remind you again, that this week’s workload is very light. When planning last week, we simply were not sure if we were going to be able to get Chromebooks to all kids in time or how many families had internet access. We are happy to say we have distributed 100% of materials to students. We are working with families this week and our hope is that by the start of next week, 100% of our kids will be connected as well.
Each day we will continue to refine our work and respond to all your questions and concerns. Please do not hesitate to email at johnna.hunt@Naugatuck.k12.ct.us with any questions.
Stay safe & be well,
