Week of April 6, 2020

distance learning starts april 13Schools will remain closed for the remainder of the school year, unless we are otherwise directed by government officials. The week of April 6-10 our teachers will be engaging in professional development, planning, and preparing for this new format for delivering instruction. Our Distance Learning plan will begin April 13. Your child’s teacher will be in contact with each of you this week to discuss the best way to connect and communicate with your child.

What is Distance Learning? Distance Learning is not necessarily Online Learning. Distance Learning means that the teacher and the student are in different locations, and instruction can be delivered via computer, telephone, television, and even paper/pencil if remote means are not possible. We embrace the reality that this is a big transition for all of us, but we are all working together to ensure that we continue to support your child’s academic progress at home. Thank you in advance for your patience, flexibility, and support as we all adapt to teaching and learning in new ways.

The District will resume meal distribution at nine school sites for much of the week following Spring Break: Tues., April 7 – Friday, April 10. Meal bags will contain breakfast and lunch servings. District and school staff will start distributing the meal bags at 10 a.m., and will stop once all bags are distributed on a first come, first served basis. Meals are intended for our neediest children between the ages of 1 to 18. Please click here for a list of schools where meals will be distributed.
