Dear Remote Learning Families,


I hope you all had a wonderful week. Happy Friday!


This newsletter will include some updates and information for the coming week.



Attached to this email you will find the Week 4- 2nd Grade Remote Learning Plan as well as Ms. Urdahl's Zoom Schedule. Please note that Wednesday's schedule has changed slightly due to the needs of our class. The new schedule swapped Wit & Wisdom for Fundations. Going forward, Wit & Wisdom will begin at 10:30 on Wednesdays and Fundations will begin at 1:40 on Wednesdays. All other days and times will stay the same.


MAPS Testing:

This week there will be no meeting for Fundations on Monday, September 14th. This is because in person students will be taking the MAPS assessment during this time. This also means that Wit & Wisdom will start about 30 minutes later on Monday, at 10:40.  Please note that based on the amount of time this assessment takes our class may be running a few minutes late to Wit & Wisdom or we may start a few minutes early. 


Virtual Back To School Night:

We will be having a virtual Back to School night on Wednesday, September 23rd from 5:00- 5:30. This will be a time for parents to meet Ms. Urdahl and Mrs. Scheid, ask any questions that you may have, and get to know the expectations 2nd has in place for students. 

The Zoom link for Back To School Night can be found here: 



Waiting Room on ZOOM:

This week Ms. Urdahl really struggled with the waiting room on Zoom. We are working on being able to disable the waiting room for our Zoom meetings. We have tried to change the settings but somehow the waiting room still keeps popping up.  We will update you as soon as we resolve this issue. Thank you for your patients.


Thank you again for being so patient with us as we continue to work out these kinks in our system. You are all amazing!


Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.


Have a great weekend!




Ms. Urdahl and Mrs. Scheid
