Greetings Obama Family,
Below are the updated links for our virtual learners. Students who have had difficulty signing in will not be penalized for missed work. We are trying to make sure everyone gets placed with right teachers and that passwords work. We had to add additional teachers to meet the needs of virtual students. They have doubled since last Friday, so we're having to make adjustments. Please click the link below for the most recent, comprehensive list of teachers. If your child is on the virtual list, you should click the link next to their teacher's name by 8 a.m. to join the class. Third, fourth and fifth grade teachers are departmentalized, so if your child is in one of those grades, they will have more than one teacher. Virtual students will not have specials during this semester and once you place your child on the virtual list, they will have to remain virtual students until December. Please click the link below to access the virtual classes.

Regarding pick-up and dismissal...
We need all parents to remain in their cars at all times if your child is a car rider. We will not call your child's name if you walk up to the door. In fact, it will significantly delay your pick up. The only way your child's name will be called is if you are sitting in your car and lined up in the circle. Please obey the traffic signs. They are there to ensure your safety and the safety of others. Teachers have been directed not to release students unless we call your child's name over the intercom. If you call your child's teacher, they will not be released. If you text your child's phone, they will not be released from the classroom. To ensure everyone's safety, it is extremely important that we follow the policies and protocols that we have put in place for drop off and pick up. Yesterday was a traffic nightmare...partly because some individuals refused to follow the procedures and protocols. Though we do not want it to come to this, police officers will be present to ticket anyone who puts staff or students in danger during drop-off or pick-up. Let's do the right thing, so that we can get your children to you in a safe and timely manner. We have over 400 car riders at Obama Elementary. Car riders will not be called before 2:15. If you line up before 2:00 p.m., you will most likely be waiting in line for longer than 30 minutes to retrieve your child, so please understand this before you come.
Again, we want to ensure the safety of all parents, staff and students, so please adhere to the rules each day. We look forward to a better, more efficient dismissal today, but we need your help and cooperation. Thanks in advance!
