Thursday, July 30th
Good Thursday Morning Mossy Creek Family,

 

I wanted to send everyone an update on our school's Virtual Meet & Greet and provide some information about supplies and schedules.

Mossy Creek's Virtual Meet & Greet will be released on Tuesday, Aug. 4th at 12pm. This will be a slide show that has information about health protocols, arrival/dismissal procedures and other beginning of the year information. It will also include a video tour of the school for our new students. Additionally, there will be a video of all our staff introducing themselves. I hope this will give our students and parents enough information to feel safe and comfortable about school starting on August 6th.

Also, on Monday, Aug. 3rd, you and your student will receive an email or phone call from your 1st period teacher providing you with your student's schedule, academic team, and where to report on Aug. 6th (all students will report to their 1st period class on Aug. 6th). Included in this email will be a supply list for your student's classes this semester.

Our teachers have been in the building for two days and have made great progress in getting ready for Distance Learning and Face to Face Learning.

If you have any questions, please reply to this email.

End of School Year Update:

May 1, 2020

Dear Parent:

The response of our students, parents, teachers and administrators to the changes brought about by COVID-19 have made me very proud to be your superintendent of schools.  Everyone has risen to challenges we never expected to face and have put forth their best effort.  Thank you for everything you have done to help ensure your child’s education has continued, despite the pandemic and closure of campuses.    

I am writing to share how we will close out this school year.  First and foremost, the school closure due to the pandemic will only help your students’ final grade.  Our teachers, students and parents have worked hard these last few weeks through the digital learning platform and other virtual tools.  The schoolwork accomplished at home since April 6 will only be used to positively impact grades.   

As planned, the school year will end on Friday, May 22.  The last day teachers will provide new instruction and give assignments is Friday, May 8. This will give students a week to complete any missed assignments and makeup work by the following Friday, May 15.  This semester, we will not give final exams or state assessments.

During the last week, teachers will calculate grades and prepare to issue report cards.  Teachers will compare your student’s average when schools closed March 13 to the current average as of May 15, and the higher average will be used for final grades and promotion/retention decisions.

We will contact you about the process the last week of school to return Chromebooks, textbooks, library books, uniforms, etc.  Once it is safe to reopen campuses, we will ask you to pick up any personal items.  As always, the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority and is the focus of decisions.  

Report cards will be mailed the end of May.  Elementary school report cards will be mailed May 22; middle school and high school report cards will be mailed May 27. 

I am very proud of the way our school families have come together to ensure quality teaching and learning have continued during this unexpected time!  Thank you again for all that you have done during this pandemic.  

Sincerely,

Mark A. Scott, Ph.D.
Superintendent of Schools


Congratulations to our 2020 Teacher of the Year: Amy Gautney
Mossy Creek Digital Learning Begins April 6
Mossy Creek Parents,

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 andy.gentry@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.
