PAA Weekly Update, April 5, 2020

Good Afternoon Pueblo Academy of Arts Families,

This is Mr. Farias with the weekly update. As we embark in our second week of distance learning, I want to thank all of our families for the support and warm receptions our staff have received as we continue to plan learning opportunities for our students’, communicate with families, problem-solve and adjust to best meet the needs of our students. I also want to take a minute to give the Phoenix staff a shout out for their dedication and professional grit in this new venture on behalf of our students. It is truly amazing to see a school’s staff, students, and families RISE in a time of crisis. As you may already be aware, Pueblo School District 60 will commence with Distance Learning through at least April 30th in compliance with Governor Polis’ recent orders. 

Students in general education ELA and Math courses should continue to complete the daily attendance form. This helps us to see how many students are accessing their Google Classrooms on a daily basis. Students in Ms. Cid’s and Mrs. Austin’s classes do not currently have access to this form, but this will not negatively impact these students in any way. 

Parents, please be advised that we have noticed some students submitting incomplete work assignments in Google Classrooms. You might want to check in with your students and set some expectations with them on work completion. When students submit incomplete work, it may appear that it has been successfully completed when viewing your students Google Classroom. If this happens, our staff will do their best to communicate this to you and your student using the email addresses  you’ve provided in Infinite Campus. 

Parents, please take a moment to update your Infinite Campus contact information to ensure we have the best contact information for you available. Student grades will continue to be reflected in Infinite Campus. If you need any help with Infinite Campus Parent Portal, you can call for support at 549-7111.  

Also, be sure to follow us on our Social Media pages, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, to get the latest news and information. 

District 60 Nutrition Services will continue distributing meals to students at Pueblo Academy of Arts. Meals will be distributed Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Each meal will contain one lunch and one breakfast. To pick up a meal, parents are asked to drive to the kitchen door area. Other school sites for meal distribution can be found on the D60 website. 

I wish you and your family a healthy, happy, and safe week ahead. 

Have a great evening.
