DIA Virtual Learning Instructions/Requirements

DIA Virtual JOB FAIR
Type your paragraph here.
Du Bois Integrity Academy takes a whole-child approach to elementary education. Teachers, administrators, counselors, and support staff work together to meet the intellectual, social, behavioral, and emotional needs of each and every child we serve.
Greetings DuBois Integrity Academy Family on behalf of our Executive Director, Governance Board, Faculty and Staff we want you to know that we love you, we miss our students, and we are praying for our school and families. As Principal I want to give you an update on this global pandemic that is affecting us all.
First, I want to thank our leadership team and our teachers for an outstanding job on implementing our Virtual Learning Classrooms. “DIA TEACHERS ROCK!” I also want to commend our parents for your efforts with assisting your scholars in their homeschool classrooms. You are their learning facilitators! We realize this may be stressful to many of you however, you are doing a fantastic job! “DIA PARENTS also ROCK!” Keep up the great partnership.
Parents to ensure your scholar receives credit for his/her classwork, please make sure the following is taking place.
1. Logging on the Jigsaw virtual classroom for all sessions. Attendance is recorded within the platform when students log into each session.
2. Complete the JOT form at the end of the week on Fridays. You need to complete a JOT form for each child. The link for the JOT form can be found on our website.
3. Complete and submit all assignments posted on the Google Classroom.
The state of Georgia has canceled all GMAS testing for grades 3-12. Although we will not have the normal state standardized test, we need to continue teaching and our children need to continue learning so they Will NOT experience a “Corona academic slide.” If our scholars don’t continue to stay actively engaged with instruction, we risk losing academic progress which will create academic gaps in preparation for the next grade level of learning. All assignments submitted on Google Classroom will be graded and averaged to calculate your scholar’s final grades along with the daily participation grades for being present in the virtual classroom.
As of today, 3/23/2020 we will be closed through Spring Break which is April 6th-10th.
Spring break will be a break for everyone teachers, staff, families and scholars. Therefore, there will be no virtual classroom or Google classroom instruction during Spring break week. Please know that school closure may be extended beyond Spring break. This will be determined as we work closely with our Governor, Department of Education and the Federal Government. We will keep you posted as we move through the days ahead because first and foremost, our “Top Priority” is safety for all.
While we are uncertain on how long we will be away from our building know that, we are planning for our return, and simultaneously working to enhance our virtual instructional classrooms and planning for the 2020-21 school year.
Finally, I want to encourage each of you as we navigate through these uncertain times that you must know that this too shall pass, and God is still in control! I realize that many of us may not share the same faith however, I encourage you to have faith in someone higher than man and let that faith anchor your soul and keep you at perfect peace. Stay prayerful and do whatever you need to do spiritually to not let the spirit of fear grip you. Coupled with the spiritual we must also practice the natural common things we can do to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus by adhering to the guidelines set by The Department of Public Health such as:
1. Washing your hands frequently
2. Use hand sanitizer
3. Clean commonly used surfaces with a disinfectant
4. Practice social distancing
5. Shelter in place unless necessary
We will continue to keep you updated through email, our school website and Robo-calling post.
Stay encouraged, stay safe and keep the Faith!
Love & Blessings
Dr. Stephanie Payne
