Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Eagle Family,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year! All of us here in “Eagle Land” have been diligently preparing for the return of our students, and we are looking forward to yet another year of excellence. Our staff members have been engaged in professional learning opportunities to keep their teaching skills sharpened, our data manager has been keeping our student records updated, and our custodian has been cleaning and disinfecting our school so that our staff could return safely to the building. While we know that this school year will be much different from previous one, it will not hinder our dedication to provide an “A+” rating of instruction to our students!
Students are scheduled to begin the 2020-2021 school year on August 17, 2020 through remote learning for the first nine weeks of school due to health and safety reasons. After this time, the district leaders will assess the conditions of COVID-19 and make decisions according to what is best for the safety of all stakeholders. Open House will be held on August 17th and all of the details for this event will be shared through our Pittman Elementary Leadership Academy Webpage, Social Media pages and through our Alert Now telephone system. Other pertinent information pertaining to school reopening will also be shared through these platforms.
The communication between home and school is critical, especially since students are learning in the home environment. Therefore, we will need current contact information for all students. Please call (252) 445-5268 or email: email@example.com with any updated contact information. You may also contact your child’s teacher directly. Students will receive grades for their work assignments. Attendance will also be taken each day. According to Article 26 of the North Carolina “Compulsory Attendance Law” children between the ages of 7 and 16 must attend classes at a public, private, or home school until they graduate. The requirement also applies to children younger than 7 who are already enrolled in school. Therefore, please ensure that your child is attending school regularly and completing work assignments given to them by their teacher.
This school year will be a new journey for all of us, but with our dedicated staff, parents, students, and community members, we will be able to successfully complete this journey. Please follow the 3 “W’s” of 1) wear your mask, 2) wait a 6 feet distance between you and the individual(s) closest to you, 3) wash your hands often. If you practice these 3 “W’s” we can help prevent the spread of COVID-19. I look forward to an amazing school year with you all.

Please sign up for Class Dojo. Class Dojo is now essential for remote learning communications. We really need 100% of our parents/guardians to sign up to get up-to-date information from your student's teacher(s). Thank you in advance!
