Filed in Slingerlands by on August 31, 2020

The following is important start-of-the-school-year information for Slingerlands families:

In-Person Learning

  • On Sept. 9, 10, and 11, in-person students will participate in Zoom or Google Meets with their new classmates and teacher.  

  • Live instruction will run intermittently between the hours of 9:15am and 12noon.  Your child’s teacher will be in touch with the links you need.

  • The children will engage in academic lessons, learn COVID safety measures for school like proper handwashing, get to know their classmates, take a virtual tour of the classroom, and meet their “specials” teachers (art, PE, etc).  

  • In the afternoons, students and one parent are invited to come into the classroom to meet the teacher and drop off school supplies according to the schedule below.

Times to Meet the Teacher and Drop Off Supplies

To minimize crowding, please only one adult and 

current Slingerlands students should visit.
