Greetings Crossan Community:

I hope that you all have enjoyed your summer!  I am reaching out via this communication to make you aware of some very important information regarding school opening.  First, school will reconvene Wednesday, September 2, 2020 at 8:30 am.  By then, students will have received all of their learning materials and learning spaces in your home are already established to engage remote learning.  In addition, you should have attended town halls facilitated by your child’s teacher to receive your child’s daily learning schedule, to hear about the learning expectations, to note the office hours of your child’s teacher, and to familiarize yourself with the learning platforms that will be used during this cycle to ensure that your child is learning during this time away from the school building.      


Students are expected to connect with their class and teacher via links established in Google Classroom.  In addition, students are expected to close out the day with their class.  This year, we will be using class Dojo to communicate with parents and to showcase some of the highlights during the learning day, so it is important that we have your updated email address.   We will also use class dojo to support our PBIS program for students that are: Respectful, Responsible, and Safe.  Of course, I would love to have written this letter with a different type of school opening, but this is where we are right now.  The Crossan instructional team will continue to deliver top-notch instruction the way we have always done under the remote learning mandate that sustains our school vision: from good to GREAT!  I have included  instructions on how to set up a workspace in your home on this website and we will be providing supplies and instructional resources throughout this cycle to support the work that your child needs to complete at home.   


I look forward to the start of the new year and we will continue to do our best to make sure that this year is full of learning and community building.   If you have any questions, or immediate needs, please feel free to send an email to or call the school at 215-400-3160.
