New Distance Learning Help for Wenonah Families - "Check & Connect"

We have launched a new resource for students and families to get support during the school day. You can visit our Check & Connect virtual classroom anytime Mon-Fri 10am-3pm to talk live with Wenonah staff. That means anytime during the asynchronous parts of our school day you or your student can connect instantly to someone who is live and ready to help via Google Meet. In addition, you or your student can visit this room at specific times to talk live with Principal Wright or our Social Worker Jennifer Frisbie. And if your student just needs a little break, they can visit the room to access calming activities, read-alouds, and movement breaks. (Be sure you are logged in with an MPS email address to make it easier to access the live Google Meet calls.)
