Argonne Family Letter from the Principal, 10/19/20

Dear Argonne Families,

It’s hard to believe we are in our 14th week of the 2020 Distance Learning school year! I hope you all take some time to reflect and celebrate the hard work your child has done and the tremendous obstacles you’ve overcome to make this happen. As we begin to close Trimester 1, teachers have been or will be communicating with you regarding upcoming assessments for your child. Please remember to allow your child to try their best at these assessments without offering adult support and help. This way, our teachers can get the most authentic and accurate information of your child’s progress. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 

Reminders and Announcements for the week: 

  • Mid-Fall Distribution Day: On Friday, October 30th from 8:30-11:30am, we will provide a Mid-Fall Distribution Day. More information and details to come. This day will be an opportunity to pick up learning materials as well as drop off your child’s work and assignments, if applicable. 

  • Technology Requests Form:  If you need a device, you may make a request through ParentVUE. When you log in, the request form is under Online Forms Portal. 

  • Technology Tips: If you are having some challenges with technology, check out this document. It has a lot of good technology tidbits on how to troubleshoot common issues on the Chromebooks. Please refer to this first if you are having issues with your child’s technology.

  • Pop-up Bookmobile: Check out this great opportunity for a weekly pop-up of book pick ups from the San Francisco Public Library and SFUSD.
