Hello Oakland Oakland Tech Families,
We are happy to announce the start of school next week, and the dates and times to pick up textbooks and technology.
WHAT: DRIVE-BY TEXTBOOK PICK-UP & TECHNOLOGY DISTRIBUTION
WHEN: AUGUST 10th-14th BY GRADE LEVEL AND LAST NAME:
TIMES: CONSISTENT ACROSS ALL GRADE LEVELS:
Students SHOULD NOT try to check out a textbook before 11:15 am. They will be turned away as they should technically be in class still with their teachers on Zoom.
This may cause a logistical headache, but in an effort to prevent long lines, the textbook volunteer coordinator has stated that PARENTS can come early starting at 10:00 am if you wish. Parents must have student schedule ready to share.
Please don’t be in a rush. Textbooks are generally passed out over the course of the first two weeks of school and teachers are expected to build community and relationships with their students before jumping 100% into lessons.
Due to concerns around the spread of COVID-19, we are not allowed to admit large numbers of people into the building.
Please adhere to the scheduled grade level times, as we will only be pulling the necessary textbooks for each grade level on each day. This will help keep the line moving.
HOW: Please follow these instructions:
WHAT IF YOU CANNOT MAKE IT ON THE SCHEDULED DAY FOR YOUR GRADE:
Please come on the make-up day. You can also possibly come the following week, but that will be by appointment only via email:
Please let me know if you have any further questions, comments, or concerns. This process is brand new and we will do the best we can to serve you all in a timely manner.
HOW PARENTS CAN HELP:
If you would like to volunteer please sign up here:
