    I hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe during this time of uncertainty. I am sure you have a lot of questions as there are a lot decisions still to be made.  As your child's EC Case Manager, there are a few things I would like you to be aware of as we attempt to keep learning throughout the next few weeks as seamless as possible: 

    1. Please check all of your child’s teachers' websites so that you can stay informed of any updates and/or special instructions for online learning. 
    2. Ensure your child can access Canvas modules through their Power School/Power Student account; this is where all assignments will be posted. If you need instructions on how to access this, check the GCS website or you can obtain a hard copy of instructions at Northwest through March 20th during the hours of 10-2.   

    If you need assistance for online access, Spectrum is offering free access to Broadband and Wifi for 60 days; the number you can reach them to set that up is 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households. 

    I will remain available during the regular work week hours if your child needs my assistance-I am here to support you! My email is skordak@gcsnc.com and my number during this time is  ‪(336) 347-8846. If necessary, I can arrange teleconferences or video chats to assist with assignment completion and/or instructional support with a few hours notice.

    This will be a learning process for us all; don't hesitate to reach out. If I can share any additional resources, I will do so and if I don't have an answer, I will do my best to locate someone who does! 

    Warm regards, 

    Kristin Skordahl
