Digital Learning First Week Kick-Off

posted by Alyson Ogaz

Kicking off our first week of Digital Learning, there are some important things to remember:

  • Students, you must use your District email when logging into Google Classrooms or other platforms that teachers are using for your assignments.  Contact the Help Desk (helpdesk@pueblocityschools.us) if you need assistance with your District email.
  • Students, you can email your teachers directly, using your student email.  All Central HS Staff emails can be found on the Central HS Website.
  • Students, Parents and Guardians, as long as students are making the effort to complete assignments and turn them in as they can, teachers will not penalize students....but, it is important to remember, that in order to get credit, a student must turn in the work.
  • Staff still work their normal hours, Monday through Thursday...if you are emailing a teacher, please give time for the teacher to respond.
  • Teachers will be sending out assignments and important messages regarding their classes, so please log in daily, and again, if you are needing help, reach out to your teachers.

As we continue to move forward, there will be bumps in the road, and as a Wildcat Staff, we will do our very best to help and support our students, parents and guardians.  Thank you for reaching out and understanding that the current situation is challenging for all of us.  Always Remember, We are Orman Army Strong!

Resources for Families

If students/parents do not currently have internet access in their homes, D60 is recommending that families utilize resources that many companies have offered in response to the pandemic situation. These options include:

  • Comcast / Xfinity - Comcast has enabled families to receive free (for 60 days) Internet for families if they qualify. All they have to do is visit www.internetessentials.com to apply.

  • Comcast has published a map of free “hotspots” where students and families can attach to available Wifi. There are many locations around Pueblo that may be easy for students to connect to. Check the following website and search by zip code to locate locations near you. https://wifi.xfinity.com/

  • T-Mobile has activated hotspot capability on all customers who currently use T-mobile as their cell phone provider. This is being provided for free for the next two months for T-Mobile customers and is up to 20Gbps high speed data.

  • Secom (local company) is offering Special Discounted Pricing on services such as Wireless and Fiber for 90 days. To see if your house is in the service area please visit http://www.secom.net, email sales@secom.net, or call 719.383.1349.

  • D60 is currently working on additional internet access options if needed.

Distance Learning Information

posted Mar 24, 2020, 10:42 AM by Alyson Ogaz

  • The Distance Learning will begin for ALL students on Monday, March 30th.  As of now, this type of learning is from Monday, March 30th through Thursday, April 16th.  Teachers have been working and will continue to work on setting up their Google Classrooms.  Students should have received an invite to Google Classroom or another method that some teachers are using to send students information on assignments that students will be expected to complete. This plan will still allow ALL students to complete assignments and receive credit for their classes. If students are not receiving emails from teachers, here are a few suggestions:
    • students can navigate to classroom.google.com, sign in with the student google account, and then click the blue "Join" button for your class.   
    • contact your teachers via email  
    • Students in Mr. Pechek's classes will use Mathia  to complete assignments and students in Mr. Santry's classes will use Achieve 3000....these teachers will assign your work using those programs.
  • Please note, D60 is developing a plan to assist high school students who may not have access to an electronic device or the Internet.  Details will be shared as soon as they are available. There is a Google Classroom App that  can be downloaded on a phone, this would help students see assignments and communicate with their teachers. Comcast and a few other companies are offering free internet to families, it would be worth checking out if you are in need of internet.
  • All FRESHMEN students, check your email, Mrs. Martinez shared a Google Doc that allows you to pick classes for next year...please do this as soon as possible, as we always do, we start our scheduling process in March...we will continue to do this, so that we are ready for next year. 
  • 3rd Quarter Grades have been posted on Infinite Campus-please check your grades....any SENIOR who failed a class, you will be contacted by your Counselor/Mrs. Mehess.  
  • Those students who have APEX classes, you NEED to continue working on them.  If you need assistance, please reach out to Mrs. Medina, Mr. Anderson, or Mrs. Martinez.
  • Please remember, this is a learning process for ALL of us.  The Central High School Staff have been working on putting structures in place, and we are still meeting as a staff, using Zoom...it's a really cool method to be able to talk and see people! It is important to have structures in place, so please work with your student(s) so that they are able to check Google Classroom each day and work on their assigments as well. We appreciate ALL that you are doing to help with this transition.
  • All CHS events have been postponed until May...and on a Good Note, several of our ART students were recognized for their projects at the Pueblo Art Gild Student Show...this can be seen on you-tube...Congratulations Wildcats! 
  • Included in this email are two surveys. Before the District Closure, The Boys and Girls Club had reached out and they want to partner with Central High School, so that we would have a Boys and Girls Club in the building for our high school students...we would be the first high school to partner with them in Pueblo...it's a great opportunity, but they need some information in order to figure out how to best serve our kids next year.  If you have time, there is a student survey and a parent survey attached to this email. You can send them to beckym@bgcpueblo.org, she is the program director for the Boys and Girls Club.  Thank you for help with this, I really want to provide this opportunity for our kids next year at Central!
This is a difficult time for ALL of us, please remember to take care of yourself, your family, stay strong! Remember, at Central High School, We Learn Today, So We Can Lead Tomorrow....and ALL Wildcats (past, present and future) are LEADERS! And as Always, BE A CAT! Goodnight Wildcats and Wildcat Families!
