Dear parents -
Thank you for another flexible, successful week of learning! We are working hard to maintain the flow of learning while being as gracious and understanding as possible with the challenges we are all facing.
In order to respond to the ongoing concern of “too many emails” your teacher will be emailing your student’s permanent schedule to you over the weekend. The schedule will include permanent Zoom links for all subjects each day, as well as frequently used links and passwords to other educational websites.
This means your teacher will not be emailing you lessons or links on a daily basis. The Zoom links are permanent, as is the academic schedule unless your teacher notifies you otherwise. So, much like when your student is attending class on campus, they will follow their schedule each day and show up for class accordingly.
An exception to this will be for some of the mainstreaming classes for Miss Benson’s students. Miss Benson will still be emailing those times/links to you as she receives them from the other teachers.
Additionally, students in Smith’s and Escorza's classes will have packets to pick up on Monday April 20th from 8AM-1:00. If you cannot make it during that time please notify your teacher and we will figure something out :)
I continue to pray the Lord’s covering over all of you! Thank you for your continued partnership during these uncertain times as we cling to the Lord who will sustain us. Please let me know if I can serve your student or family in any way.

We are almost to the end of our second week of remote learning - hang in there - you can do it! I have been able to jump in to most of the live classes so I have seen your students’ beautiful faces just a bit - I sure miss them!
Although we are ready to welcome all of the students back to school the moment it is possible to do so safely, we are going to resume remote learning April 14th. With that in mind, here are a few details:
- Student packets to support learning the week of April 14th will be available for pick up tomorrow, 3/27, between 9:00-1:00. If you are not available to pick up at that time please contact your teacher and they will make alternative arrangements.
- We will be adding more “Live” teaching sessions when we return after break. Your teachers will continue to communicate those schedules and details.
Guidelines For “Live” teaching sessions: Students should have supplies ready and be sitting at a table/desk ready to learn
- Students should be wearing clothing, not PJ’s :)
- Please no eating during “Live” teaching sessions if possible
I can assure you that your teachers are working very hard, joining in small and large Zoom faculty meetings, collaborating with colleagues near and far, searching for ‘just the right’ resource to pass along to you! We are dedicated to doing our best to keep teaching well during this very bizarre time for our nation and world. I continue to join you in prayer over the safety and well being of your families and those dear to you. I am reminded of the Lord’s loving protection and continuous care for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose!
As always - please do not hesitate to email, call or text me. We are here for you!
In Christ alone,
Principal of Special Education
As we are preparing to shift to remote learning beginning Wednesday, Mach 18th, we continue to pray for the changes this brings about for everyone. I am grateful that we can continue to trust in the sovereign and mighty hand of the Lord to sustain and protect us all in this time.
Some details for the remote learning plan for students in Imago Dei:
- Remote learning begins Wednesday
- Teachers will email lesson plans to you by 8:30 each morning
- Assignments should be given daily with due dates and submission instructions
- Teachers are available in real time daily from 8:00-3:00
Student academic packets will be available for pick up tomorrow, Tuesday March 17th, from 11-12:00 outside. We will have all materials ready for you and have some hand sanitizer to boot! If you cannot make it to school during this timeframe, please contact me and we can schedule another time for you to receive your materials.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. We will truly miss you and your students, and we look forward to seeing you back here soon.
