Welcome to Meadowvale Elementary School

It’s a new school year here at Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) and what better way to welcome back our students and staff then to unveil our brand new webspace for the community. Our new webpage features the latest web platform to provide students, parents/guardians, and teachers with the best tools for success.

Take a chance to explore our new webspace and come back regularly for news and updates!

This year, we are excited to be setting sail with our school community as we enter a new year with our theme Together We S.A.I.L. - Serving, Achieving, Inspiring, Leading.  Our school community is filled with service minded people that support Meadowvale.  Our kids are achievers every single day as they are challenged to do things in the classroom that are not always easy.  Teachers are pushing students to empower them so that they intellectually engage in their learning to be the best they can be.  Our community inspires one another daily - in and out of school.  And when we think of leading, we are ALL leaders.  Servant Leaders!!  We lead by the way we ALL serve to create the learning community that we want for our children.

This year, you will be hearing more about a new HCPS initiative called "Learn With Me".  These will be scheduled opportunities for families to visit the school to meaningfully engage in learning activities with  their children.  No more coming in to sit and watch.  These, grade level scheduled events will provide meaningful engagement opportunities for our families as they sit right alongside their children.  EXCITING!!

What's Happening

Hello Meadowvale Elementary School Families.  This is Mr. Warfield, your proud Principal.  On behalf of Mrs. Houseman and I, we miss our staff and our Mustangs.  This is new for all of us and we have been working to provide as much support as we can given the situation we are in.  Teachers have been reaching out, providing guidance and instruction using means that many are simply not used to.  Let’s face it, every last educator pursued a career in education, not to be a work-from-home distance learning teacher, but rather a personable educator that is right on the front lines, in the classrooms, supporting their group of students to be the best they can be.  Given our school closure, educators have not been able to be that person, but rather a supporter and implementer of distance learning using whatever means they and Harford County Public Schools can coordinate.  Teachers across the county have been doing their very best, and our Meadowvale staff is right there with them. 

There have been questions about itsLearning.  Many teachers are using itsLearning, but some are not as many students and teachers have not used this as their primary instructional platform.  Please be sure to contact your child’s teacher so that you clearly understand how instruction will be delivered.  There is no required way to get this done.  Some teachers may build lessons on itsLearning.  Some may send tasks via email as Microsoft Power Point presentations or Word documents.  Some families, that don’t have access to technology at all may be limited to a weekly phone call with instructions related to the packets that Harford County Public Schools provides. 

As it relates to the assignments, teachers have been instructed by Harford County Public Schools to plan learning experiences that provide some level of interaction with state content standards using information provided within Harford County Public School’s Critical Content Maps.  Teachers will be doing their best to create these learning experiences in a way that shouldn’t be overwhelming to families.  If you find yourself overwhelmed, please contact your child’s teacher and let him/her know.  Superintendent Bulson has made it clear that he does not want families overwhelmed with work, just a weekly learning experience in specific content areas, once per week. 

Assignments will be delivered, weekly, on Tuesdays around noon.  And as I mentioned above, if you are unsure as to HOW your child’s learning experiences will be provided, please contact your child’s teacher so that you are certain of what to look for.  Teachers will also work with families to determine a preferred process for submitting completed work.  That is going to vary from family to family depending on the technology available.  In some cases, this may be a phone call with a teacher to tell him/her that the work is done.

There have been questions about accessing the Harford County Public School’s network and itsLearning.  There may also be questions about the available software for students that have devices at home.  Click here to find a document that should clarify some of the access questions. 

If you have any questions after reviewing the attachments to the email, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  Your child’s teacher is ready to support you.  Mrs. Houseman and I are also available to support in any way that we can.

Take care and stay safe!  Boys & girls, do the best you can do.  That’s all we ask😊

Mr. Warfield
Principal
