Letter to Mohawk Jr/Sr. High Families

Dear Mohawk Jr/Sr. High School Parents,

With school physically closed for at least the next couple of weeks, Mohawk will be continuing to provide education virtually.  We are putting pieces in place to help students continue to make academic progress while they cannot be in their classes. This may look different for different classes.  Some may be daily work and readings or videos in the teacher’s Google Classroom, while others may require students to access Google Meet to be a part of the online class at a specific time of day with the teacher actually providing instruction digitally.  Each teacher will post what their class will be doing in their Google Classroom with instructions for how to use Google Meet if necessary. The regular schedule is included below for your reference.

We need parent help to make sure your student is logging in to their school account, visiting their Google Classrooms, and checking their school email daily, just as if they were attending classes on campus.   Attendance will be taken, just like at school. Students can email or contact their teacher through Google apps to get extra help on assignments if needed. Parents of students on IEPs will be contacted directly to make specific arrangements.

Students who needed technology to make this shift to virtual learning were issued a District chromebook computer on Thursday. Other students reported that they had a computer to use at home already.  If your student is having tech issues accessing virtual classes, Google Classroom, or academic content, email our computer help desk at it@marcola.k12.or.us.

If you do not have internet access at home, please call the school on Monday to make alternate arrangements at 541-933-2512.  

Additionally, for our students receiving free or reduced price breakfast and lunch, you or the student may pick up meals between 11am and 1pm on Monday and Wednesday in the cafetorium to take home.  Please bring a backpack, box, or bag to haul the meals home. There will be no eating on campus.  If you are unable to come to campus at that time, we can arrange meal delivery for most students.  Please contact the school by 11 am on Monday, March 16 at 541-933-2512 if you need to arrange for delivery.

Thank you for your patience as we work through the kinks and get everyone up and running.  In Marcola, we are proud to provide opportunities to meet the needs of every student.
