This is the image for the news article titled Important Pintlala UpdatesGood afternoonPintlala Family,
I pray and hope that you had a wonderful summer.  With classes starting virtually on Monday, August 10th, I wanted to touch base with you all about a few things as we approach this start date.

1.  Registration -  EVERYONE has to update their registration information EACH year.  If you have already completed this THANK YOU!  If you have not already done so please complete this ASAP using the update registration link:  https://update.mps.k12.al.us/login...we are not able to assign your child to a homeroom until this is completed!  Don't forget to upload 2 proofs of residency!  If you are new to Pintlala this year, you will need to contact the school that your child attended last year for username & password to access the site.  If your child is entering Kindergarten, you will need to use the new student registration link:  https://registration.mps.k12.al.us/login.  If you have any questions about registration please contact Ms. Kimberli Dixon our school counselor, Mrs. Rebecca Parnell, Secretary, or Mrs. Linda Steele, Bookkeeper.  

2.  Chromebooks - We can only issue chromebooks to students who have completed registration and are on our class rolls. Chromebook distribution will begin on tomorrow, Thursday, August 6, 2020 at the following times to students who have completed registration:
Grades 1-2:  Pickup time     12:30- 1 p.m.
Grades 3-4:  Pickup time        1:00-1:30 p.m. 
Grades 5-6:  Pickup time       1:30-2:00 p.m.
Kindergarten:  Pickup time     2:00-2:30 p.m.
 If you are unable to make this time, we will run the same schedule on Friday, August 7, 2020.
Please remember to remain in your cars and wear a mask or protective face covering. Have your child(ren)'s names written on a piece of paper.  Pull up to one of the orange cones and someone will get your child's name and bring the device to you. Please bring a pen to sign for the device

3.  Schoology - Schoology is the learning management system (LMS) that the state purchased for us to use, please see attached flyer for a quick tutorial on how to access Schoology from the MPS homepage.  DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT set up an account to access Schoology, the teachers will add the students to their courses and we will make sure that students know their google account information to access the courses during the 1st week of instruction. 
 
4.  Student Work Day - For the week of August 10-14, students are expected to be logged on between 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., teachers will be participating in Professional Learning in the afternoon that week.  Starting the week of August 17, students are expected to be logged on between 8:00-3:00 p.m.  A tentative schedule is attached to this email and a paper copy will also be provided when you pick up your chromebooks.  Schedules will be discussed in detail during the week of August 10-14.   

5.  Virtual Open House - Will be scheduled for Monday, August 10 by grade levels between 8:00-12:00 p.m.!  Meeting invitations will be sent out by grade level shortly.  The maximum occupancy is 100 participants, so if at all possible only one device per child should be used to login to ensure that everyone that is able to participate can get in the meeting.  
  
6.  Textbooks - As soon as all textbooks arrive, they will be issued to students. 

7.  Phone calls - We will be in virtual training this week and will not always be available to answer the phone.  If you call and do not get an answer PLEASE leave a message and we will return your call as soon as we are available.     

8.  Child Nutrition Program (CNP) - Please see attached flyer regarding meal pick up & Diet Prescription form if your child has special dietary needs, you will have to have this form signed by physician in order for it to be processed.   

And last but certainly not least...this is new for all of us. If we all remember to have a positive attitude and words of encouragement for one another, we WILL get through this together 💕!
