Quincy Update

Dear Quincy Families,

We are excited to celebrate Halloween week in a different way next week! Please check out the list of Spirit Day themes throughout the week below. We designed the week to maximize fun and learning while staying safe, and we didn’t want families to have to go out and shop for clothing for the week.

We continue to feel deep appreciation for your support! Have a wonderful weekend!

ZPS PLANS FOR SECOND SEMESTER:

ZPS is preparing for the second semester, which runs January 25 through June 10, 2021. In response to COVID-19, all students will continue with two learning options: In-Person at ZPS or via Z-Connect Online Learning from home.

Parents are asked to participate in a short survey by November 20 to inform ZPS of your selection. All families are asked to participate. Please take time to discuss the best fit for your family moving forward. Additionally, parent-teacher conferences can provide additional insight on your student’s current educational path. This information may be useful as you determine which option to select.

An infographic and FAQ were designed in August to assist with families making selections for the fall semester. These documents may provide answers to families who are considering a switch between online and in-person for the second semester.

Families are reminded the selection is for an entire semester. Only situations with extenuating circumstances will be considered for a mid-semester program change.

For our families who are considering a switch from Z-Connect Online to ZPS In-Person, please be aware ZPS will do their best to place students at their original / home building. However, due to COVID-19, ZPS is maintaining smaller class sizes and may need to adjust assigned buildings for the duration of the academic year to ensure we meet the safety measures outlined in the ZPS Preparedness Plan.

For our families considering a switch from ZPS In-Person to Z-Connect Online, please note Z-Connect Online for grades K-5 is taught by a ZPS teacher and grades 6-12 is taught by Michigan Virtual Online instructors.

If you have questions before making a selection, please contact your building principal. Please take the survey by November 20:

Dear Quincy Families,

We want to thank you for your ongoing communication with us in case of an illness. We are all working to navigate our “new temporary normal” and your partnership and cooperation with us is so appreciated! I got to experience our new illness procedures as a parent this week when my son got the stomach flu and it certainly makes returning to school after an illness more complicated. Please know that we are here to walk you through the process.

Please remember to call the attendance line at 616-748-4710 or email the office in case of an absence/illness at mwilkos@zps.org, listing the specific symptoms your child is experiencing.

We love our Quincy families! Thank you for helping us all stay healthy!

Quincy Update

Dear Quincy Families,

One thing we miss so much is YOU! We miss having parents and volunteers in the building. Your children are doing great, we are so proud that our school is full of joy and learning despite the restrictions, but we really do miss welcoming you into our school. We are guessing that you miss it too.

Recently a parent sent in a note that said this, “We appreciate everything the staff is doing at Quincy. In these odd times, it seems that the school is providing a stable, nurturing environment for the kids. My girls come home happy and excited every day.” This kind of feedback is a dream come true because this is exactly what we set out to do. Getting feedback from parents like this is a huge highlight for us. We are thankful to partner with you in the education of your children!

Enjoy the beautiful October weekend!

REMOTE LEARNING HALF-DAY:  OCT. 16

Our next remote learning half-day is Friday, October 16. Quincy teachers learned so much during our first remote half-day and have been working hard to make this upcoming one even more successful.

P.E. UPDATE FOR GRADES 2-5

The Physical Education Department, specifically Mr. Davelaar and Mr. VK are doing roller skating at Quincy for the next four weeks. Students are allowed to bring their own skates or roller blades to school this year. We encourage kids to make sure they have extra socks, or long socks so the skates are more comfortable. Without socks students will not be allowed to skate, although we do have a few extra pairs, but not many. We encourage all students to work on tying their shoes during these weeks, so they can quickly get up and skating.
Excited to get started!!
Much joy,
Mr. VK and Mr. Davelaar

Dear Quincy Families,

Happy October! We have been in school for a month now and we are planning on staying together, in person, all year long. As we watch classrooms and schools across the state shut down temporarily due to COVID-19, we are even more appreciative of the Quincy community’s commitment to masking up and distancing. Thank you for your partnership in this unique year!

REMOTE LEARNING HALF-DAY: SEPT. 18

Hello Families!

As you know, ZPS has changed some of our half-days to “Remote Learning Half-Days.” This shift in learning for our staff, students and families is intended to prepare families for the potential of moving to remote learning in the future. The unknown is hard to predict, however we want to make sure we are prepared to continue learning should we end up in a situation like last spring.

Looking back at the spring, when we shut down initially for COVID-19, we focused on reinforcing skills students had already developed throughout the year and minimized introducing new content. This was because we couldn’t be sure every family was equipped with the tools needed for success in a virtual setting. The other reason was that we hadn’t prepared our students for learning in this way.

Fast forward to now, teachers have been teaching our students specific online tools that will help their learning and easily transfer to virtual learning. While the majority of our families indicated they have access to reliable internet, we realize some families do not have internet at their homes. To help families make a plan for these students to access learning remotely, we have free wifi accessible from some of our building parking lots with specific locations being shared next week. Families may also consider using free wifi at the public library. Some families have mentioned they will visit family or friends on these days to utilize their internet.

These planned remote half-days will be “practice” days in case we are forced to go to remote learning. We specifically use the word “practice” rather than “perfect” because we know there will be kinks to work out. We ask for your patience and help as our students (and teachers) adjust to a different way of learning. All students the day will begin at 8:45am and will wrap up at 12:00pm, and your child’s teacher will be sharing specific information for their class. Please note that all teachers will take attendance at the morning meeting at 8:45am, and that the learning activities are required.

We’re excited to see how this first half day of remote learning goes for our students and will look for your feedback after our first experience.

Your partner in education,

Allyson Apsey

QUINCY FOODSERVICE UPDATE

ZPS food service has prepackaged spoons and forks available for students that order lunch from school. As you can imagine, this takes lots of planning and the supply is limited. If your child brings lunch from home please include plastic utensils for them to use. Thank you so much for your help.

QUINCY LIBRARY UPDATE 

What building has the most stories?  The library, of course.  Last March we wanted to provide extra books to read during the shutdown and we have a lot of books still missing from the Quincy Library. Would you please look through your home to see if you have any of our library books?  (There will be no overdue fines for any of these books).  We want to get the library ready and “booked” for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks for your help:)

A MESSAGE FROM QUINCY’S WELLNESS TEAM

(Para español, haga clic aquí.)

We know there are both feelings of excitement and anxiety regarding the start-up of school considering all we’ve experienced in the past 6 months.  We are definitely all in this together!  

Being mindful of the current climate, ZPS is very much wanting to make sure all students are feeling Safe, Valued, and Loved and Ready to Learn as we make the transition back after the Covid-19 ‘stay at home’ order. We know students and families have been impacted differently.  We value working in partnership with families in the best interest of our students and we wanted to make you aware of two approaches we are taking.

First, we know that students and families have been impacted differently in the last 6 months. Filling out this Parent/Guardian Survey and sharing what it has been like for your family/child will help to inform us on any needs we can be sensitive to as we start-up this school year.  It should take approximately 5 minutes to complete – we greatly appreciate your time on this.

Second, keeping in mind both the state’s roadmap for re-opening and the awareness that students will be experiencing a variety of emotions with the return and readjustment to school, all elementary schools will be administering a mandated universal student social/emotional wellness screener in an effort to address the emotional health and wellness of all our students.  This screener may be viewed in comparison to universal screening for vision and hearing or most commonly used in the academic area of reading to identify any need for additional support.  This brief (12 item) classwide screener will be completed by teachers 3 times a year.  Data will be reviewed by building Wellness Teams (consisting of the school psychologist, school social worker, principal, student success coordinator, and 1-2 other professional staff) and, along with parent/guardian and teacher input, will help identify students who may benefit from additional emotional, behavioral, or social support to be successful in school.  Any interventions implemented will be done in collaboration with the classroom teacher and you would always be informed if at any point your child could benefit from these opportunities.  Any suggestions for more direct/intentional behavioral supports from outside service providers would also follow parent contact and permission.  If interested, this LINK will let you know more specifically what will be included in the wellness screener.

Please do not hesitate to contact one of us below if you have any questions or concerns. We are committed to ensuring your child is supported academically, socially, and emotionally, and we look forward to collaborating with each of you toward achieving this goal.  However, if at this time you would prefer to exclude your child from involvement in the social/emotional wellness screener, please click  HERE  to fill out a form exempting your child from the process.

Thank you and, once again, here is another LINK to the Parent/Guardian Survey mentioned above. 

Here’s to a good start to the 2020-2021 school year!!

Your Quincy Student Wellness Team

HELPFUL TIPS AND REMINDERS

  • All students and staff will wear face masks throughout the school day. Students will have their face masks on when they enter the building. Wearing them to recess will also be required, but the good news is that it allows students to play with friends from other classes in their same grade level during recess. We will take socially-distanced, outdoor mask breaks throughout the day. It is recommended that face masks are washed daily. You can access more important safety information HERE.
  • Even though we are not allowed to have volunteers in the building right now, we know that we will be able to welcome you back someday. To get ready for that day, parent background checks (http://www.zps.org/volunteer-at-zps/) need to be completed every year in order to volunteer at Quincy.
  • You can be a part of our PTO! If you are interested, please indicate your interest when you register to volunteer. Our PTO will sponsor a fun, educational, and easy fundraiser this year. Look for more information soon.
  • School lunches and milk will be served beginning the first day. This year students will have two lunch options, a hot option and a cold option. Even if you do not think you will qualify, please complete the “free or reduced lunch” form each year as it is tied to valuable funding for ZPS. You can find out all you need to know about school lunches by visiting http://www.zps.org/food-service/.
  • School starts at 8:40am each day, and the school doors will open at 8:25am. For the beginning of the school year, in order to help encourage social distancing and avoid congestion in the hallways, students will go straight to classrooms when they arrive. We hope that all students arrive by the first bell at 8:35am to be ready for learning at 8:40am. Staying home when sick is advised, however, appointments during the school day and vacations are discouraged because students may be absent more because of quarantine or illness. Learn more about the ZPS attendance policy on the ZPS website.
  • If you are bringing your child to school in the morning, please pull up along the front curb and wait for a staff member to approach the vehicle before you allow your child to get out of the car. This will help us avoid congestion in the doorway.
  • Please always park in a parking spot if you intend to get out of your vehicle to visit our office. We have an occupancy limit in the office, please wait outside the office until it is your turn to enter.
  • If your child is sick, please be sure to notify us by calling our attendance line 748-4710 by 9:00am. Please monitor your student’s health daily. If he/she is experiencing any respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms, and/or has a temperature of 100.4 or greater, please keep him/her home.
  • The school day ends at 3:35pm. We have a wonderful transportation system that will bring your child to and from school safely and there are many benefits. Having your child take the bus also helps parents avoid our very busy parking lot at the end of the day.

Dear Quincy Families,

In case you did not have an opportunity to check this out yet, we want to remind you that we put together lots of information for you about “A Day in the Life at Quincy”, highlighting many of the changes that will help keep students and staff safe. You can read all about “A Day in the Life at Quincy” by clicking on THIS LINK.

Or, if you’d rather listen than read, feel free to watch this video:

Finally, we want to thank YOU for your help preparing your children for this new school year. Your hard work has also paid off and helped us have a successful first week!

Your partner in education,

Allyson Apsey

OTTAWA COUNTY’S RETURN TO SCHOOL TOOLKIT

QUINCY LIBRARY UPDATE 

What building has the most stories?  The library, of course.  Last March we wanted to provide extra books to read during the shutdown and we have a lot of books still missing from the Quincy Library. Would you please look through your home to see if you have any of our library books?  (There will be no overdue fines for any of these books).  We want to get the library ready and “booked” for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks for your help:)

A MESSAGE FROM QUINCY’S WELLNESS TEAM

(Para español, haga clic aquí.)

We know there are both feelings of excitement and anxiety regarding the start-up of school considering all we’ve experienced in the past 6 months.  We are definitely all in this together!  

Being mindful of the current climate, ZPS is very much wanting to make sure all students are feeling Safe, Valued, and Loved and Ready to Learn as we make the transition back after the Covid-19 ‘stay at home’ order. We know students and families have been impacted differently.  We value working in partnership with families in the best interest of our students and we wanted to make you aware of two approaches we are taking.

First, we know that students and families have been impacted differently in the last 6 months. Filling out this Parent/Guardian Survey and sharing what it has been like for your family/child will help to inform us on any needs we can be sensitive to as we start-up this school year.  It should take approximately 5 minutes to complete – we greatly appreciate your time on this.

Second, keeping in mind both the state’s roadmap for re-opening and the awareness that students will be experiencing a variety of emotions with the return and readjustment to school, all elementary schools will be administering a mandated universal student social/emotional wellness screener in an effort to address the emotional health and wellness of all our students.  This screener may be viewed in comparison to universal screening for vision and hearing or most commonly used in the academic area of reading to identify any need for additional support.  This brief (12 item) classwide screener will be completed by teachers 3 times a year.  Data will be reviewed by building Wellness Teams (consisting of the school psychologist, school social worker, principal, student success coordinator, and 1-2 other professional staff) and, along with parent/guardian and teacher input, will help identify students who may benefit from additional emotional, behavioral, or social support to be successful in school.  Any interventions implemented will be done in collaboration with the classroom teacher and you would always be informed if at any point your child could benefit from these opportunities.  Any suggestions for more direct/intentional behavioral supports from outside service providers would also follow parent contact and permission.  If interested, this LINK will let you know more specifically what will be included in the wellness screener.

Please do not hesitate to contact one of us below if you have any questions or concerns. We are committed to ensuring your child is supported academically, socially, and emotionally, and we look forward to collaborating with each of you toward achieving this goal.  However, if at this time you would prefer to exclude your child from involvement in the social/emotional wellness screener, please click  HERE  to fill out a form exempting your child from the process.

Thank you and, once again, here is another LINK to the Parent/Guardian Survey mentioned above. 

Here’s to a good start to the 2020-2021 school year!!

HELPFUL TIPS AND REMINDERS

  • All students and staff will wear face masks throughout the school day. Students will have their face masks on when they enter the building. Wearing them to recess will also be required, but the good news is that it allows students to play with friends from other classes in their same grade level during recess. We will take socially-distanced, outdoor mask breaks throughout the day. It is recommended that face masks are washed daily. You can access more important safety information HERE.
  • Even though we are not allowed to have volunteers in the building right now, we know that we will be able to welcome you back someday. To get ready for that day, parent background checks (http://www.zps.org/volunteer-at-zps/) need to be completed every year in order to volunteer at Quincy.
  • You can be a part of our PTO! If you are interested, please indicate your interest when you register to volunteer. Our PTO will sponsor a fun, educational, and easy fundraiser this year. Look for more information soon.
  • School lunches and milk will be served beginning the first day. This year students will have two lunch options, a hot option and a cold option. Even if you do not think you will qualify, please complete the “free or reduced lunch” form each year as it is tied to valuable funding for ZPS. You can find out all you need to know about school lunches by visiting http://www.zps.org/food-service/.
  • School starts at 8:40am each day, and the school doors will open at 8:25am. For the beginning of the school year, in order to help encourage social distancing and avoid congestion in the hallways, students will go straight to classrooms when they arrive. We hope that all students arrive by the first bell at 8:35am to be ready for learning at 8:40am. Staying home when sick is advised, however, appointments during the school day and vacations are discouraged because students may be absent more because of quarantine or illness. Learn more about the ZPS attendance policy on the ZPS website.
  • If you are bringing your child to school in the morning, please pull up along the front curb and wait for a staff member to approach the vehicle before you allow your child to get out of the car. This will help us avoid congestion in the doorway.
  • Please always park in a parking spot if you intend to get out of your vehicle to visit our office. We have an occupancy limit in the office, please wait outside the office until it is your turn to enter.
  • If your child is sick, please be sure to notify us by calling our attendance line 748-4710 by 9:00am. Please monitor your student’s health daily. If he/she is experiencing any respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms, and/or has a temperature of 100.4 or greater, please keep him/her home.
  • The school day ends at 3:35pm. We have a wonderful transportation system that will bring your child to and from school safely and there are many benefits. Having your child take the bus also helps parents avoid our very busy parking lot at the end of the day.

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

wear your maskDear Quincy Families,

Things are rolling around here! We just had our first socially-distanced mask-wearing staff meeting. And, you know what, it went great! Your Quincy teachers and support staff are READY for students to return. We spent time today working through our arrival, dismissal, lunch and bathroom procedures. Expect information to come home with some details about the new procedures soon.

As you know, students will be wearing masks all day at school, including as they enter/exit the building and during recess time. We will have “mask breaks” throughout the day as students develop their stamina. The “mask breaks” will be outside, under the supervision of their teachers, and socially-distanced. As you help your child prepare for mask-wearing, we wanted to send along a few helpful tips.

youth-gaiter-masks

Gaiter type masks are acceptable, but some children have trouble keeping them up–they fall down on their own. If you have a gaiter for your child, it would be helpful to have them practice running around and playing with it on to see if it stays up.

 

face maskAs we observe students, it looks like the most comfortable face masks are cloth masks that go around their ears. It is a good idea to have your child practice wearing their mask to help build stamina and to make sure it is a good, comfortable fit.

 

face shield (2)

 

Clear shields of any type are not acceptable. Students must wear a face mask, not a face shield.

 

We can’t wait to see you soon!

VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE FOR GRADES 1ST-5TH GRADES

Plan to receive an email from your child’s teacher with a video and information between 4:30-6:00pm on Wednesday, August 26. Teachers will be available via email during that time. Feel free to watch the video at your family’s convenience. Some teachers are conducting virtual meetings through Zoom. If your child’s teacher is doing a Zoom meeting, you would have received an email with that information.

A NOTE FROM MRS. APSEY

welcome backDear Quincy Families,

Class lists are posted on the front door of Quincy! We are thrilled to be one step closer to being back together. We have been dreaming about the new wonderful classroom communities we are going to create. As you stop by to see which class your child will be in, please take some extra safety precautions. We ask that just one family at a time goes up to the door and the next family waits six feet back. Also, please refrain from touching the glass this year–we usually see LOTS of fingerprints on the door and are looking forward to having them stay cleaner this year. We have to celebrate the small things, don’t we :)!

You will notice some changes as you look at class lists. Three Quincy teachers will be teaching ZConnect for at least this first semester–Jesse Carrell, Ben Ashby and Stacy Wilson. We are thankful to them for taking on this exciting opportunity but we will miss them very much. They will be back at the Q before we know it! We’d like to welcome a new teacher to Quincy, Mrs. Emily Russcher is joining our fifth grade team. Emily is a Zeeland graduate and she will be a great addition to a pretty incredible team.

Letters from students’ teachers are being mailed out today (8/21/20). Also included in the mailing are a letter from me that contains LOTS of information and helpful reminders. Additionally included is this flowchart to help us identify when to keep students home from school in case of illness or exposure.

PLAN FOR OPEN HOUSE

School_Bus_Cartoon_Image-4August 24-  Y5/Kindergarten only – Buses Practice Run:  This is a chance to practice the bus route (if your student will be busing). Students and (1) adult will be picked up 2 hours before normal pick up (example: an 8:00 am pick up time = 6:00 pm pick up on night of busing). When your bus arrives to Quincy, students will have time to play on the playground before heading back home on the bus at 7:00pm. Please note that the building will NOT be open during this time and students and adults will be required to wear face masks at all times (including on the playground). Look for exact busing info in letters mailed to your home.

August 25 – Y5/Kindergarten only – Meet the Teacher Stop-In:  It is so important for our youngest learners to meet teachers and see classrooms before the first day as it is the first time in school for many of these students. Each student has been assigned a time to come in with (1) adult to meet his/her teacher and see the classroom. This information was emailed to families. You will arrive through the front doors and exit through the kindergarten doors. We will have to adhere to the schedule carefully in order to keep everyone safe and there will be no busing provided this evening. These appointments will be between 6:15pm to 7:45pm, and will be 15 minutes long. Please note that all students and adults will be required to wear face masks at all times.

August 26 – 1st grade thru 5th grade – Virtual Open House: It is important to offer our older students an opportunity to see their new teacher and get important back-to-school information, even though they are pros at school already. We will host the Virtual Open House through either a Zoom meeting or video. You will be sent information directly by your child’s teacher. This will be happening between 4:30-6:00 p.m.
