"Schoology" Parent Access Update - October 6, 2020

Your student's school will be reaching out to you by the end of next week with an access code for "Schoology". If you do not receive an access code by October 9th, reach out to your child's homeroom teacher. At the secondary level, you only need 1 access code and all courses will be loaded.

This account will allow you to see the work your child has submitted, discussions they have participated in, school updates, and also provides the ability to message staff at the school. Multiple children can be added to one parent account.

The following are videos (Part 1 and Part 2) showing how to set up your account and take advantage of all the "Schoology" features available to you.

New School Year Announcements

August 31, 2020

Dear Sisson Families,

As you may already know, the Lynn Public Schools will begin the 20-21 school year remotely.  Remote learning is students engaged in their classes and completing assignments from a remote location, not from inside the school. Although we will be learning remotely, the attendance policy has not changed. It remains the same as in previous years. 

This school year will look very different as we move into teaching and learning. We have adopted a Learning Management System for Lynn Public Schools called"Schoology".  A learning management system is an online application that allows for the administration of educational courses, providing teaching and learning opportunities anytime, from anywhere. Your child will be taught using "Schoology", Monday-Friday, throughout the school day and beyond. "Schoology" can be accessed through a desktop, laptop, or through the web browser on an iPad or tablet. 

Students will access "Schoology" by logging onto:
https://lynnschools.schoology.com

Username:
student’s email address:
stu------@lynnschools.org (6 digit ID# follows stu)

Please contact the school if you do not know your child’s unique ID number. Beginning on September 16th, once they are logged in, their courses will be loaded on this page and they will have access to school updates. More information will follow, including videos on how to log in.

Students in grades 3-12 should have already received their district issued loaner laptops at this time. If you have not had this opportunity, please contact your building principal and they will provide dates, times, and locations for pickup. Devices have been ordered for students in grades K-2, we will notify families when those arrive.

Starting September 23rd, the school day for Grades 1 - 5 at Sisson is Monday - Friday from 7:45 AM to 12:45 PM. During that time, students will participate in teaching and learning based on the following times:
Morning Circle 30 minutes (5 days a week)
English Language Arts/Social Studies 120 minutes (5 days a week)
Math 90 minutes (3 days a week)
Math 60 minutes (2 days a week)
Science 30 minutes (2 days a week)
Brain Break 30 minutes (5 days a week)
Closing Circle 15 minutes (5 days a week)
     
The Kindergarten Schedule is based on an AM (7:45 AM to 10 AM) or PM (10:30-12:45) class with following time allotments.

Value of the Month: Cooperation

Your family is the most important “team” that you will ever work with!

To be successful everyone in the family needs to:

• Respect each other’s space and belongings
• Listen to each other
• Do chores at the right time and with a good attitude
• Learn how to work out problems without fighting
• Communicate well so that everyone knows what is happening
• Spend time together as a family
• Celebrate each other’s successes
• Support each other through sad times
• Learn to share

Did You Know?

The routine of the school day is important for students. They know the main purpose for being in school is to learn and that routines are in place precisely to help them focus on that learning. When students are repeatedly tardy, these routines are disrupted. Arriving after 8:15 AM can throw off their whole morning or even their day, especially if being late made the trip to school stressful.

If getting to school by 8:15 AM is a challenge for your family, you will need to make changes to your morning schedule at home in order to get to school on time. During the winter, students take longer to get ready because of coats, boots and hats. Setting your alarm for 15 minutes earlier could be all that is needed to ensure students are here to meet the teacher by 8:15 AM. This adjustment can help ensure that all students have a great start to their day

Welcome To The Edward A. Sisson Elementary School

Dear Parent/Guardian,
Another school year is under way and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with your children.
Some information follows to ensure your child’s school year is a happy and successful one.

  • “Every Student Every Day” Attendance is extremely important. Your child must be in school every day. Please try to schedule doctor and dentist appointments for after school hours or on Saturday. In addition, please plan your vacations during school vacations.
  • Upon return to school from an absence, Please send a parent or doctor note in with your child if he/she is absent explaining the reason and date of the absence.
  • School begin at 7:45.It is important that all students are here on time because breakfast is served promptly at 7:45 and ends at 8:00. Also, when they are late, they miss valuable instructional time.
  • Check each night to see what your child has for homework. Homework must be completed each night and returned the following morning.
  • Students are not allowed to use cell phones in school, therefore the teacher will collect each cell phone and they will be kept in the office until the end of the school day.
  • Kindergarten students will enter and leave the building through the side door labeled AI. Grade 1 enters through the back door that is located on the back school yard labeled BI  Grade 2- 5 will enter through the front doors labeled A2.

During inclement weather (rain, snow or under 20 degrees) ALL students will enter through the front doors. (A2)

  • Identification-All visitors must ring the bell to enter the school building and state reason for visit. All visitors MUST report to the main office upon entering the building. You must leave their license and receive a badge. The secretary will be very happy to assist you.
  • Free Breakfast and Lunch for every child.
  • The Sisson School does not have parties, so please do not send in any candy or goodies.
  • No Dogs allowed on School Property at any time per Lynn City Ordinance.

I am looking forward to another great year.
Sincerely,
Ms. Franklin
Principal-Sisson School

About School Councils
A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

It is important to note the School Council plays an advisory role in assisting the building principal to organize and implement a School Improvement Plan which not only addresses the areas in which the school intends to comply with the requirements of the Educational Reform Act, but also how the school intends to meet those system-wide goals and policies adopted by the school committee. Membership will consist of the principal, teachers, parents, students and community members.
