    Hello 5th Graders and Parents/Guardians,


    The 5th Grade Teachers have compiled a list of work for your children to do while our school is closed. This is called a remote learning plan and will help your child keep up with their schoolwork while they are home.  This work consists of much of our daily in-school classwork. You can view directions on our teacher websites on the Sayen homepage. To access student work and for daily attendance, students will log into their “google” accounts. Once logged into “google” they can access our google classroom. There will be a link for the day-to-day work, as well as a link to log their attendance for the day.  While school is closed, Mr. Leonardo & Mrs. Balent will be available to answer any questions you might have about the activities during our school hours (10:00 am-2:00 pm). You can reach us via email or through google classroom. We look forward to your cooperation to ensure that all of our students are keeping up with their learning during our time apart. 


    We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate through remote learning as well.  We changed a couple procedures for remote learning over the weekend as we found better ways to be more effective.  

    Please refer to the most recent correspondence from Dr. Rocco for further details. Information on free and reduced lunch pick-up is included in this link.
