Mossy Creek will be moving to Digital Learning beginning April 6th. All of our teachers will be holding face to face online classes for students twice per week through the Zoom app with additional work sent to students through Google Classroom. I have attached our schedule at the bottom of this page (based on Monday’s school schedule) for you to see. You can use this as a guide to know when your student needs to be working on school. Teachers will be teaching classes in the morning from 8am -11am and will be available to assist students with questions and assignments from 1- 4pm each day. Please reach out to your child’s teacher if they need help. You can contact your child’s teacher through the school website, Infinite Campus, or Google Classroom.
Your student should log in to their Google Classroom through Single-Sign-On located on the HCBE website (https://portal.hcbe.net/_auth/Login.aspx?ru=L3Nzby9wb3J0YWw=). Your student’s teacher will send them an email through Infinite Campus and Google Classroom to let them know how to join a ZOOM class during the scheduled times. It is important that students complete the assignments sent through Google Classroom as grades will be taken during this time of Digital Learning.
Please be patient with our teachers as they work to make this new type of learning a success. We ask that you work with us to continue to educate your child even in these tough times.
You can always reach out to me at. @hcbe.net or you can call the school office Monday- Friday from 9am- 3pm (starting April 6th) if you need anything.
Below are the rules/norms that students should follow while they are on Digital Learning:
- Participate fully by listening and following directions.
- Mute your device until called upon to speak.
- Behave appropriately.
- Chat only with your teacher.
- Dress appropriately.
- Minimize background distractions.
- Have an appropriate workplace.
- No recording or taking pictures of Digital Learning on Zoom.
Attention Parents & Students:
Our teachers will be in contact with you about using the Zoom video conferencing platform as a tool that they will utilize to keep in contact with their students. Here is a great instructional guide to help you get started with Zoom. All students will need to be able to access this after Spring Break. Please notify your teacher if you do not have access to a computer, cell phone, or tablet.
I wanted to let all the students know that we miss you. We hope you are doing well and staying safe. Many of you have been working on assignments your teachers have sent through Moby Max, Google Classroom or just work that has been sent through email. Please continue to keep working school into your daily activities. The assignments sent will not be graded but teachers will continue to give feedback in regards to student performance. This week our teachers will begin organizing Distance Learning just in case we are not allowed to start school after spring break. We will continue to send you assignments to help you with your education at home. If you have any questions or need help, please email your teachers through Infinite Campus (https://houstoncountys.schoolinsites.com/infinitecampus) or our Mossy Creek Website (https://mcms.hcbe.net/). If you cannot reach your teacher through these platforms, simply send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the email and I will make sure they get the info. I hope you all have a great week. Please continue to keep our students safe through hand washing and social distancing.
I would like to see what all of our students are doing that is education-related while they are at home. Please visit the Mossy Creek Facebook page and drop us a picture and caption letting us know what you are doing while you are homeschooling.
We miss everyone and are here to help if you need anything!
Be Gritty and Go Gators!
