Teachers will contact students and their families on Monday or Tuesday to begin online or virtual learning opportunities on Wednesday. Some students may continue to use printed or textbook based materials and this can be arranged with your teacher. Please call the school if you've not heard from your teacher by Tuesday afternoon. While the hours for staff on campus may vary, we will be checking messages daily. The Internet Resources page to the left has some easy to use lessons while you wait to hear from your teacher.
Students are expected to engage in learning every school day and we are monitoring participation. Teachers have been directed to have weekly contact with every student; please help us maintain this minimum connection through video conferencing or by phone.
We will not be collecting printed work from students at this time. Teachers will work with students to assess their learning in different ways. The State is permitting us to use Credit/No Credit grades for this semester for all grade levels.
Although learning resumes, our buildings and campuses remain closed to students, parents, and the public. Only staff will be permitted at this time. Please do not attempt entry as we meet the requirements for proper social distancing and prohibitions on gatherings.
The pages linked to the left provide helpful information.
Update from 4/1/20
Is school closed?
No. We will take off for spring break and return on 4/13/20.
Our buildings will be closed except for employees that are directed to work at the site. All students will be provided with some form of distance learning. Each student will be contacted by their teacher on or about 4/13 to discuss the best options for each student. To bring opportunities for engaging interaction with peers and teacher, we are hopeful that online learning is possible.
Can I borrow a computer or Chromebook from school?
Yes. If you have a need, you will be offered a device.
Is my child required to participate?
Yes! We have been directed by the State to provide distance learning to all students.
Will students be retained or will the school year be extended?
No. We realize that students will need a longer period of review when the next school year starts and we will make appropriate plans to support students in their learning.
What about high school?
We will work with each student individually to support their progress. Students will receive the grades and credits they earn during this time.
What about graduation/promotion?
State orders for gathering will guide our planning. We’ll consider this matter when we return from spring break.
Over the next few days we will be developing procedures to loan technology and learn more about distance learning. Our plan is to find creative, engaging, and practical solutions to support our families, students, and staff.
The Governing Board will consider a Distance Learning Policy on 4/16/20. A draft is provided here for review.
