Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s),
Welcome to Gateway Environmental K-8 Learning Center for the 2020-2021 school year! Our theme this year is “Gateway is Blasting into a Year of Limitless Learning.” I would like to thank you for your support and understanding during the 2019-2020 school year as we transitioned to Distance Learning due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
As we begin the 2020-2021 school year online, please be assured that our faculty and staff are working diligently to support your child’s social and educational needs during this difficult time. Below are a few things you can do as a parent to assist your child to be prepared for the online learning:
- Ensure your child has a working device with a camera, sound and microphone, and their portal username and password.
- Ensure your child logs in daily, is in uniform, follows their virtual schedule and actively participates.
- Keep contact information up to date.
- Inform the teacher if you are having connectivity issues.
- Communicate any questions or concerns with your child’s teacher.
- Ensure your child adheres to all school rules and policies.
The faculty and staff at Gateway are looking forward to attaining a strong partnership with you to ensure your child reaches their highest potential. The faculty and staff will continue to strive and promote the school’s vision and mission of providing a safe and nurturing environment while providing academic excellence. I look forward to working with you and your child to make the 2020-2021 school year a success! Please contact the school at 305-257-6000 for any questions or concerns.
