Message From The Principal

  • Mrs. Davis Marrow

                                                                                                                                           September 9, 2020

    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to new and returning Holmes families to the 2020-2021 academic school year! I hope that you and your family are safe and doing well! 

    During these unprecedented times, please be reminded that all schools in Mt. Vernon are beginning the school year remotely.  Further decisions will be made by the Superintendent of Schools no later than October 5, 2020. 

    The first day of virtual schooling begins Thursday, September 10, 2020. The student Username, student ID, classroom teacher’s email, and ZOOM login information are available in the main office. Additional login information for specials and support staff will be provided on the Holmes parent page in Schoology and Seesaw.

    Students will be engaged in daily synchronous (LIVE ZOOM) instruction, as well as asynchronous (Student Independent) instruction with teacher support. Students and families must remember the following ZOOM norms: Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Ready to Learn. 

    With this being said, students must log in on time. Students and family members must be appropriately dressed. Students should have a quiet place to work, and parents must be mindful of their language and interactions in the background. Students must be organized.  Grab & Go breakfast/lunch will also be available from 7:15 am – 8:15 am as needed. A schedule will be posted on the district’s website. I know this is a lot of information and a lot to take in.  Know that your child’s success is our #1 priority and of utmost importance, so we will work with you every step of the way. We ask that you do your part and work with us! Keep the lines of communication open!

    As we proceed throughout the school year, various updates will be provided on the following platforms: Holmes Schoology page, email address, Robocalls, and access to the Holmes and district webpage.

    Please reach out to your child’s teacher and the principal at ddavis1@mtvernoncsd.org with any questions that you may have.

    Once again, welcome, and I look forward to a very productive school year!

     

    Respectfully,

    Mrs. Danielle Davis-Marrow, Holmes School Principal
