     6/18/20 To my parents:
    Thank you for all of your support always but especially since the start of the at home learning experience. I know this has not been an easy road but I greatly appreciate all of the support for your child during this time. Please check the Parent Portal in the coming days, once report cards are completed and uploaded. The progress reports for RTI or related services can also be accessed there. If your child receives services through RTI or as a Related Service Only IEP student, I have uploaded their progress report for the 3rd Quarter (uploaded and posted in April) and for the 4th Quarter (uploaded this week in June) in Schooltool as directed by the district.
    The link below should send you to the parent portal link on the district webpage.

    Again, I want to thank you all for the continued support and I hope we go back to school and some sense of normalcy in September. Until then, have a wonderful, safe and relaxing summer with your family.

    All the best,
    Ms. Glas :)

    *UPDATE FOR ALL OF MY FAMILIES: Please check out the "Summer Activities" tab here on my website which were also posted in each of my Speech Google Classrooms.  I hope you all have a safe, healthy and happy summer!!*

    Dear Parents & Caregivers,

    I hope this finds you well and healthy as we navigate this “new normal.” I miss seeing my students and hope they are all doing well too!  I just wanted to reach out and provide an update on speech/language services. We will be sending assignments/resources via our Google Classroom.  In the next few days, we will contact you with your child’s Google Classroom code. Attached at the bottom of this letter are steps of how to access Google Classroom and turn in assignments.   

    Prior to our extended break, I had updated my website with a number of resources which I hope you found helpful. In case you didn’t check it out here is the link :

    Please let me know if you have any specific questions that I can answer regarding your child at this time. I can be reached via email: kristen.glas@wcsdny.org.  I will be in touch with office hours in the coming days.  

    Be well and stay safe!

    Dear Parents & Guardians,

    On Friday April 3, 2020 we officially return to school through our new online learning format. This is a new experience for us all, especially for our children. This is new to us also, so please be patient as we navigate this together.   At this time speech therapy will be provided through the Google Classroom platform.

    We are aware that this new platform may be overwhelming and take time to get used to.  At this time we have been added as a co-teacher in your student’s classroom. This means assignments from us will all come under the same classroom as the classroom teacher,  but will be marked as a speech assignment.  

    Friday, April 3rd I will be sending an “assignment” as a test run. This will be located under the “classwork” tab on your student’s google classroom.  This is for us to see that our students are receiving the work.

    We will each have daily office hours where we will be available to answer any questions. More information about these hours will be provided shortly and will be posted on Google Classroom as well as my website: https://sites.google.com/wcsdny.org/tsontosorlandohomepage/home

    Warmly,

    Mrs. Tsontos (Mrs. T) & Ms. Glas
