Nate S

Nate, you’re correct.
Sana Syed
43:58
are we allowed to drop off later/ pick up earlier for the KG kids?
Missy Corbin
43:58
We are strongly encouraging all City students to please use the Walker location to open more slots for other children. This is not required, however the Brooks location is filled and currently has a wait list.
Missy Corbin
44:14
Yes, you can still pack a lunch for the Walker location
cbarnes
44:32
At walker breakfast and lunch is provided. At brooks students must bring their lunch and a snack
Nate S
45:34

Nate S
46:11
Also, for the health forms and physical do those need to be submitted before Tuesday?
Tracy C
46:23
At Walker lunch is free for students who receive free and reduced lunch. Lunch is available for other students to purchase. Details will be available tomorrow or Friday.
quita

Missy Corbin
47:04

Emily
47:40
could we have ACPS provide lunch to the brooks location? they are likely all eligible
Missy Corbin
48:21
Hi Emily! We are currently talking with ACPS about this being a possibility…. we will provide an update as soon as possible.
Missy Corbin
49:16
Mary-yes, the swiping refers to children who wish to purchase meals at Walker. They would use their usual lunch number/lunch card like any other day at school.
quita
51:24
Computers at ymca?
Sana Syed
51:25
Venable's KG schedule is from 9:30-3p so wanted to check re timing options

51:54
My child’s synchronous time with her class is in the afternoon. Should we just provide her class schedule so that the teacher can ensure she is following that one?
Missy Corbin
52:01
The school districts we have spoken with will be providing the computers to all children. They will need to bring these each day along with headphones.
Haiying (Helen) Shen
52:08
How many kids have signed up so far (at Walker)?
Fujun Qin
52:40

Sarah
52:43
what happens on Fridays? I believe that with ACPS, at least with the elementary grades, there are no classes on Friday
Khara Turnbull
52:46
In thinking particularly about the incoming kindergartners (for whom this will be their first “school” experience), is the expectation that they will need to sit at a desk all day, or can they move around and interact with other children?
Missy Corbin
53:24
Each teacher will be in touch with all of the families of children in their classroom to coordinate accordingly.
