Latest COVID-19 Update

In our ongoing efforts to share information with the school community, here is the latest update from Immaculate Heart of Mary School regarding COVID-19 and the impact on student learning. 
 
As we are all aware, the state of Maryland has closed all schools during the COVID-19 quarantine period.  All activities taking place in the school building during this time are cancelled or postponed. Here is how this will look at IHM:
 
Students have brought home textbooks, workbooks and packets from their teachers. Beginning on Tuesday, March 17, 2020, students began their learning from home by visiting the school website (www.ihmschoolmd.org) and click on "Faculty and Staff" in the upper right hand corner.  This will take you to the links for teacher websites. On each individual teacher's website, look for the "Learning from Home" tab across the top.  Each school day by 9:00 am, teachers will post their expectations and activities for student learning. Instructions and due dates will be provided.  If your child has more than one teacher, they will need to check each teacher's website, including special area classes. Teachers will be checking email for any questions you may have. Your children will be using a variety of both online resources, as well as paper/pencil and book activities. Regarding online access, especially through Google Classroom, your child's email address is firstname.lastname@ihmschoolmd.org.  Google Classroom (grade 2-8) works best in Chrome. Students already are logging into a number of educational sites through the  "Log in with Google" tab and have routinely practiced this throughout the school year.  If you find that your child/family is overwhelmed by the workload, please contact your child's/children's teachers or Sr. Susan Louise or Mrs. Kozlowski. This is new for all of us and we want to work through this together. 
 
In addition, we are required to continue our reporting to the Baltimore County Health Department.  If you or members of your family have possible exposure or positive test results for COVID-19, or any other communicable disease, please contact Miss Susan at sbaer@ihmschoolmd.org throughout the next two weeks.  We appreciate your honesty and know that all of the information that you provide will be kept confidential.  Please also continue to alert Miss Susan with any travel plans, including both domestic and international travel.
 
We look forward to sharing more information with you at the beginning of next week via email and social media. Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this uncharted territory with our school and our world.  Our prayers are with you, your families and all of those affected by COVID-19.
