MAKE SURE TO COMPLETE YOUR DAILY ATTENDANCE LESSON! As soon as your child logs on to Otus for the first time each day, they will go to the Daily Attendance Lesson located in their 1st-period class to answer the one question in the lesson.  The student response is time-stamped in order to ensure the question was answered on the correct day. Please remind your child to go to the Daily Attendance lesson first when logging in for the first time each day so their attendance can be accurately recorded. 

MISS GRACE’S NEEDS SURVEYS! Hey Cooley students, parents, and families. Please take a moment to fill out my needs survey for the year. There is one for PARENTS and one for STUDENTS.

Best Practice for Students During Distance Learning: 1. Be on time 2. Position yourself so there is a wall behind you if possible 3. Be respectful to others by pushing the mute button while you are waiting your turn to speak 4. Raise your hand if you have something you would like to share. 5. Participate using kind words, just like you would in class. 6. Utilize the chat for questions when appropriate.  Remember the Cobra Creed: Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Kind.

Parent Resources:  Hey, Cobras!  Have you shared the “Parent Resource Site”  with your parents yet?  It’s a super helpful place for your parents to go for all kinds of support from technology to mental health and wellness to community resources.  Go to the RCSD website:  RCSDK8.org and choose “Parent Resources.”  Then look at the menu of choices under “Parent Resources” on the upper left side.  We love our Cobra parents as much as we do our Cobra students and want to share supports with them, too!
