Consent to Tape
Below you will find the documents to allow teachers to record their “live” lessons in order to post at a later time on their Google Classroom so that students who may be unable to log in during this time can access it at a later time, or if students (and parents) would like to revisit a lesson already taught. Please contact your child’s teacher only if you DO NOT allow your child to be recorded.
Remote Learning beginning APRIL 6th
April 3, 2020
Dear Tilton Tiger Families,
We hope everyone is healthy and doing well at home. Thank you for all the support you have given to us as we navigate through this difficult time. We are happy to announce that school will start on Monday, April 6, 2020. Classroom teachers will use Google Classroom to connect with your children while learning from home. Teachers will post their class schedule by this Sunday night for families to view. Please note, the school day will be three hours per day, from 9am to 12pm. We know families are busy and your child may need to view or complete an assignment at a different time that works best for your family. However, the schedule should be flexible enough to accommodate your family routine. There will be independent work, projects, videos and specialists’ assignments for students to complete. There will also be at least one live lesson held weekly by one of your child’s teachers. A classroom teacher or another staff member will be available to your child weekly to provide support with learning at home. This contact may be by phone (may appear as blocked or no caller ID), email, classroom phone app, or online in the Google Classroom web service.
Our school nurse, the School Adjustment Counselors and Administrators are available for any questions you may have. All emails are found on the school homepage.
Please note that we will not have school on Good Friday, April 10th, and April Vacation (April 20th to 24th) week as noted in the HPS School Calendar.
Please know we are all working together to provide the very best education we can during this challenging time. The first week of school will be a time to relearn class rules, adjust to online learning and become comfortable with our new learning environment. Students will now be graded during this time. Please be patient as we anticipate that adjustments may be necessary to refine this new learning environment as we go. Keep Believing, together we will get through this new and turbulent time.

Estimadas familias de Tilton Tigers:
Esperamos que todos estén sanos y que les vaya bien en casa. Gracias por todo el apoyo que nos han brindado mientras navegamos por este momento difícil. Nos complace anunciar que las clases comenzarán el lunes 6 de abril del 2020. Los maestros de clase usarán Google Classroom para conectarse con sus hijos mientras aprenden desde casa. Los maestros publicarán su horario de clases este domingo por la noche para que las familias las vean. Tenga en cuenta que el día escolar será de tres horas por día, de 9 a.m. a 12 p.m. Sabemos que las familias están ocupadas y su hijo/a pueda necesitar ver o completar una tarea en un momento diferente que funcione mejor para su familia. Sin embargo, el horario debe ser lo suficientemente flexible como para acomodar su rutina familiar. Habrá trabajo independiente, proyectos, videos y tareas de especialistas para que los estudiantes completen. También habrá al menos una lección en vivo que se llevará a cabo semanalmente por uno de los maestros de su hijo. Un maestro de clase u otro miembro del personal estará disponible para su hijo semanalmente para brindar apoyo con el aprendizaje en el hogar. Este contacto puede ser por teléfono (puede aparecer como numero desconocido o bloqueado), correo electrónico, aplicación de teléfono o en línea web en Google Classroom.
Nuestra enfermera escolar, los consejeros y administradores de ajuste escolar están disponibles para cualquier pregunta que pueda tener. Todos los correos electrónicos se encuentran en la página de inicio de la escuela.
Tenga en cuenta que no tendremos clases el Viernes Santo, el 10 de abril y la semana de vacaciones de abril (del 20 al 24 de abril) como se indica en el Calendario escolar de HPS.
Estamos trabajando juntos para proporcionar la mejor educación posible durante este momento difícil. La primera semana de clases será un momento para volver a aprender las reglas de la clase, adaptarse al aprendizaje en línea y sentirse cómodo con nuestro nuevo entorno de aprendizaje. Los estudiantes ahora serán calificados durante este tiempo. Tenga paciencia ya que anticipamos que pueden ser necesarios ajustes para refinar este nuevo entorno de aprendizaje a medida que avanzamos. Sigan creyendo, juntos superaremos este nuevo y turbulento tiempo.

For Social Studies, there are informational packets on two new regions of the USA. To address science, we have included work about sound energy. Daily- please READ as much as you can! ST Math, Xtra math and tons of other sites (in the included list) are free and ready to use! Please check your child’s Google Classroom as often as you are able to for updates, enrichment and the chance to send messages to your teacher to still feel connected to your school!

Mrs. Pallaria and Miss Augustus have created folders for the students. These all include one book and a writing notebook with additional packets to support your Reading, Writing and Comprehension. There is an MCAS packet for Math and Science and some Daily Common Core, Reteaching Pages and Enrichment opportunities for Math. Please also look at the 5th Grade Google Classroom for additional activities and websites to use to support learning. Some websites we are using are https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome/grades-3-5.html , https://home.haverhill-ps.org/ to get to Pearson Easy Bridge, Google Classroom, https://play.prodigygame.com/ , https://xtramath.org/#/signin/student_other around others. We will be calling a few students daily to check in and stay connected. We look forward to continuing to communicate with students and parents over the next few weeks through email and ClassDojo in addition to the calls.
We want you to stay connected and continue to stretch your minds while school is out. Ms. Spadaro and Ms. Duquette will be using Google classroom to stay connected and provide you with material to continue to stretch your minds. We will post activities, assignments, games, and links for you in order to have access to many different types of content throughout these next few weeks. Please check google classroom daily and try to complete some of the material we have put there for you. You all have access to Epic and we will be posting there as well. Most of you already have your Math books at home and Ms. Spadaro will be adding guidelines to classroom for you in google classroom. We will also stay connected with families through Classtag. Please feel free to send us messages as much as needed. We want you all to know that we are here for you and that everything will be ok. We believe!!
With love and hope,

The following websites and apps are great resources for health and wellness:
My fitness pal
The health, safety and well-being of Tilton School students and staff are a top priority. Our school continues to follow the guidance of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) and the Haverhill Board of Health in our response to coronavirus. There are no confirmed cases of coronavirus disease in Tilton Schools at this point or any other Haverhill Public School.
The MDPH and CDC recommends precautions used for reducing the risk of infection for other illnesses, such as flu:
- Wash your hands for 20 seconds or more with soapy water. If unavailable, use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick
- Stay home while you are sick (except to visit a health care professional) and to avoid contact with others.
- Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
- Get adequate sleep and eat well-balanced meals to ensure a healthy immune system.
Tilton School has increased the frequency of cleaning common and high traffic areas each day. In a normal situation these areas would be cleaned once a day. Prioritized cleaning includes bathrooms, the lunchroom, common spaces, door handles, emergency bar on doors, etc.
All Tilton classrooms are being disinfected nightly with Evaclean Protexus Electrostatic Sprayer “Germ Blaster.” We will continue to be vigilant in our cleaning practices to reduce the risk of sickness to any member of the Tilton community.
I have also attached a share facts sheet share-facts-h.pdf
