Virtual Learning Expectations


  • Teachers will report to school from 8:00-3:00 so you can contact us via Remind/Dojo or email during this time if you need any assistance.

  • Meals will be provided on Tuesdays from 5:15-6:15 at the front entrance of PLES.

  • Student attendance will be taken daily. The attendance will be taken the NEXT morning to give working parents time to help their student(s). For example, we will post Monday’s attendance on Tuesday morning. We are able to look on Schoology to see who logged in. 

  • Packets will not be sent home. 

  • Students who do not have internet will have access to SMART buses that will be located throughout the community. A map of the bus locations will be provided on our school website.

  • SPED services will continue via teletherapy. 

  • All student work will be posted in Schoology.

  • Zoom meetings: Your child will be expected to attend live zoom meetings. These will occur 3 times a week for Reading AND Math. Your child’s teachers will let you know the meeting ID and passcode ASAP. The links for the meetings may also be posted on Schoology. 

  • Zoom schedule:

    • Reading: 8:30 Monday, Wednesday, & Friday

    • Math: 10:00 Monday, Wednesday, & Friday

  • Science and Social Studies lessons will be pre-recorded and posted into Schoology. There will not be live Zoom meetings for Science and Social Studies. 

  • If your child is unable to attend LIVE zoom meetings, they will be recorded and posted in Schoology to view later in the day. However, we HIGHLY encourage your child to attend the meetings live in case they have questions. 

We are going to miss our students tremendously! We desperately want them to be in the classroom, but also want everyone to stay safe during this time. Please reach out with any questions.

Bio

Education:

I had the privilege of attending schools in Autauga County as a child.  During this time, I was influenced by many wonderful teachers, and because of this, I decided to become an educator.  I graduated from Prattville High School and attended Auburn University at Montgomery.  I earned a Bachelor's of Science with a major in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.

Experience:

When I graduated from Auburn University at Montgomery, I accepted a teaching position at Summit Christian Academy in Millbrook, Alabama.  I taught math and science there for thirteen years.  After this, I desired to teach in Autauga County and work for the school system that gave me the foundation for my career.  Substitute teaching allowed me to meet some wonderful students and faculty at the many elementary schools in the county.  In 2010, I began working primarily at Pine Level Elementary School where I taught in many long-term substitute positions.  In 2012, I accepted a position as a fifth grade language arts teacher.  I love working with the students and staff at PLES!

Bio:

My name is Tracey Edmondson. I am married to Earl Edmondson, and we have one daughter, Miss Anna Grace.
