Message from Principal

  • Greetings Parents and Guardians 

    Welcome new and returning Cecil H. Parker Families to the 2020-2021 academic school year! We hope you and your families are safe and doing well. Our Parker Scholars have been extremely missed! The administrative team will pop into all virtual classrooms to greet our beautiful scholars on the first day of school to welcome them back. 

    During these unprecedented times, please be reminded that all schools in the Mount Vernon City School District are beginning the first day of remote learning on Thursday, September 10, 2020 at 8:30 AM. All students must log into their virtual classrooms promptly by 8:30 AM. Student login information remains the same for returning students. Attendance is very important; students must log in on time every day! If there are any further decisions regarding remote and hybrid learning, it will only be made by the Superintendent of Schools. 

    I expect all students to follow their virtual program schedule which will be provided by the classroom teacher in Schoology on the first day of school. Classroom Zoom was provided through US mail and in Schoology with student username, password, and ZOOM information will be provided in correspondence through US mail as well. 

    Students will be engaged in daily synchronous (Live Zoom) instruction, as well as asynchronous (Student Independent) instruction with teacher support. It is critical for students and families to remember the following Zoom norms and expectations: 1) Cameras should be on, 2) microphones are muted when not speaking, 3) all students are respectful, and 4) all students are actively engaged and responsible for their learning. With that said, students must log in on time each day, students and family members must be properly dressed, students should have a quiet place to work, parents must be mindful of their language and interactions in the background, and students must be organized. 

    “Grab-n-Go” breakfasts and lunches will be provided in our school cafeteria, Mondays-Fridays, from 7:45 AM to 8:45 AM. Breakfast and lunch will be distributed at the same time through the back door of the cafeteria through the parking lot located on South 6th Avenue. A “Grab-n-Go” schedule will be posted on our Schoology school page. 

    As we proceed throughout the school year, various updates will be provided on the following platforms, Cecil H. Parker School Schoology page, parents’ email addresses, K-12 Alerts to receive Robo calls, and the Cecil H. Parker School page on the district website. Please make sure your address, phone numbers and email addresses are accurate. 

    Your child’s success and well-being are our #1 priority and we will work with you every step of the way to ensure their success. We ask that you do your part and work with us! Please feel free to reach out to the teacher, support staff and administration with any concerns or questions. 

    Informational parent Zoom forums are planned to share the Cecil H. Parker School Reopening Plan. The school district is providing tutorials on how to access Schoology and student’s core subject courses through parent webinars and online workshops. Please look out for those announcements. 

    Once again, we look forward to meeting with all of our Parker Scholars and their families.


    Always for Your Children, 

    Ms. Jacqueline Green


    Cecil H. Parker School
