Next week! HTE families who subscribe to the private FB Parents of Holy Trinity Elementary group can join me for a FB Live Storytime. It won’t be as quite as good as the real thing, but I am exploring every chance to connect with kids! Contact Ms Borden for more info!

Guidelines for Families to Help Protect Student and Family Privacy:
Video meetings between teachers and students are extensions of the classroom and regular
classroom rules apply. While we are connecting with students in a virtual environment, everyone
has a responsibility to ensure the protection of privacy. Please strictly adhere to the following
● Teachers will invite students to participate in virtual meetings by sharing a meeting URL
or unique nickname through Gmail or Google Classroom. To ensure that only invited
guests have access to the session, please do not share this meeting information
● The meeting will show the names and faces of student participants. To ensure that
identities are kept private, please do not post any photos or videos of your child’s virtual
meetings to social media if other student faces or names are shown.
● Discuss ways you can protect the privacy of members of your household, such as
physically locating in one spot without background activity.

Good Day to All,
I hope that all of you remain safe through this whole ordeal. Teachers, administration and district personnel are in contact daily with sharing of information. HTE teachers have been reaching out to stay connected with their students while trying to be respectful of the fact that this is a very difficult time for all families as they try to adjust to this situation. We will continue to work on staying connected and promoting and supporting learning for our students.
The latest memo from Mr. Tony Stack, our Director of Education, that was released this afternoon.
Please stay safe,
