Mrs. Laura Payne
Welcome to 4th grade and to the start of a history making school year! My name is Mrs. Laura Payne and I will be your child’s homeroom teacher!
I am so excited to be your child’s virtual teacher for the first three weeks of school beginning August 17, 2020. Hopefully we will be face to face beginning September 8, 2020! I will be teaching your child Science and Social Studies.
I know things this year will look and feel different as we cope with the Coronavirus pandemic. I want you to know that I will do my absolute best to provide your child with a meaningful education from a distance. The teachers and staff at Jackson Elementary are working far beyond a regular workday to prepare video lessons, provide electronic support, make the lessons understandable for distance learning, and doing whatever else is possible to make sure that your child gets the best access to quality learning experiences.
Distance learning will be challenging for you and your children. As I work to provide your child with learning opportunities, please do not hesitate to contact me when your child needs additional guidance. For the time period that we are participating in virtual learning, I know that your child will attempt to access and complete their distance learning work in the very best way he/she can! Before we know it, we will be face to face in the classroom again. Please help your child stay focused and current on their assignments. I know they will do their very best, and I promise I will do my very best.
Until then, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me by email or you may call the school Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
