Classlinks All Call Good afternoon, parents and guardians. This is Betsy Green, principal at BES with an important informational message. Our school has a single sign on program this year called Classlinks. You have to be signed in to Classlinks to view emails and all school apps, even Google Classroom. This is different from previous years and if you try to logon using old passwords and programs, you will be unsuccessful. So, please talk to your child about how to access classlinks. The link is on our school webpage under menu, then student links. It is the only option. Thank you and enjoy your evening.

If your student is coming back for the traditional in-person school model, please join us for Open House this Thursday, August 6th! If your student is opting for the distance virtual learning model, your Zoom Orientation will also be on Thursday (you should have received an email with the Zoom link last week). #FocusedForward #TR1BE

Open House
As mentioned in our latest post, as the guidance from CDC and DPH changes, we will also change our decision guide for students. The latest LC Decision Guide is posted for your information. Thank you for your support of our school system! #FocusedForward #TR1BE

Student Decision Guide
As we prepare for those students and families choosing the traditional school model, it is important that we establish and follow a decision guide for situations in which a student or staff member presents with COVID symptoms. We are #focusedfoward, and we appreciate our #TR1BE!

Decision Guide
Due to the high volume of families who applied for the distance virtual learning model, we made the decision to cancel the in-person orientation and schedule a Zoom orientation that you can access from your home. You will receive an email invitation closer to date. #TR1BE

Stuff the Bus
TR1BE, With so much uncertainty remaining as we navigate our days, weeks, and months, we know that many questions are swirling concerning the plans of our upcoming school year. We could put out a plan today that would likely need to change multiple times as health concerns and guidance changes over time. We are not behind the eight ball. Rather, we are taking things seriously, studying our options, and formulating research-based plans of action for the new school year. Our leadership team in Lumpkin County is currently meeting through email, virtually, and in person to work out details for the following areas: student and staff wellness, facilities, technology, school nutrition, transportation, instruction, assessment, and virtual learning. These focus groups will work in coordination with our school board to publish a final plan in mid-July. In the meantime, itโ€™s important for you all to know thisโ€”student safety has been, is, and always will be our top priority in Lumpkin County. As parents, you will have a face-to-face option and a virtual option for your children. What those look like will be determined by the findings of our focus groups over the next month. Rest assured, we are working tirelessly to provide the best education in the safest environment possible for your children. We know other school systems are posting their tentative plans now, and we want you to know that we arenโ€™t asleep on this topic. We like to take a calculated, strategic approach to our planning process. If you have questions or concerns that you would like to share with any of the focus groups mentioned above, please email jason.lemley@lumpkinschools.com or rob.brown@lumpkinschools.com. We will be sure to pass along your correspondence to the focus group leader. Thank you for your continued support of Lumpkin County Schools!

May 6th ALL Call Transcript: This is Betsy Green, principal of Blackburn Elementary School. Tomorrow, May 7, is the last day of new assignments for the 2019/20 school year. If your child has completed all the assignments for the entire distance learning period, then their school year is over tomorrow. If your child has struggled to complete the assignments or is still working on the assignments, then teachers will be reaching out to you and your child to get them to complete the work up until May 22. We will have 3 different days set up for you to return Chromebooks, paper packets, and library books. On these days you will also be able to pick up your childโ€™s personal belongings, and pick up or buy a yearbook. Group pictures will not arrive in time for these pick up days and we will send them home at the start of next year. We will have curbside pickup/drop off with different stations. You will drive up like you would for the parent pick up line. You will stay in your car, drive up to the different stations, and the staff member at each station will assist you. You can also buy a yearbook for $30 as we have extra ones to sell. The first drop off/pick up day will be Tuesday, May 12 from 8am to 4pm. We will have two more dates for drop off/pick up to be announced later. If you are returning a Chromebook, we ask that you charge the device before returning it. Also, please remember to return the charging cord with the device. This all call transcript will be posted on our website so you can refer back to it. Thank you for working with us during this distance learning time and if I can help you in any way please email me at betsy.green@lumpkinschools.com. Take care.
