As we move into this next phase of school closures, we are making every attempt to continue learning with your child.   


As a district, we have broken the period of school closures into two separate phases.  During the first phase, March 16-April 3, students were given work in paper formats before leaving for the closures, parents picked up paper packets of work, and students were assigned work through Google Classroom.  Your students should be finishing up the assignments from Phase I. Please check your email and encourage your child to check their school emails and Google Classroom for assignments from this first phase. Students in grades 3-12th grade will receive a 10% bump in their final grade for the 3rd nine-week grading period if they complete and return their first instructional pack.


During Phase II, our teachers have been instructed to break up the month into two week periods.  The first round of this phase will include assignments for April 6-8 and April 15-17. We will be providing paper formats, as well as online formats, through the use of Google Classroom as we offered during the first phase. 


On Tuesday, April 7 and Wednesday, April 8, you may go to the buildings to drop off packets from the first phase and pick up a new assignment packet for this next phase. If a paper copy of the assignments is needed, please contact your child’s teacher or call your school’s office and leave a message.  We ask you to refer to each of our building principal’s messages over All Calls and Social Media platforms regarding pick up times at each building.  


Beginning Monday, April 6, Phase II assignments will be posted on the buildings' websites.   Each school now has bright yellow newspaper dispensers labeled “Drop Off” and “Pick Up” for your convenience.  These are available for you to drop off student work with little human contact. If you call ahead, principals will have your child’s work in a labeled envelope in the dispensers for after-hours pickup starting on Tuesday, April 7..   


Teachers will continue to provide support through phone calls, email, messages, Google Classroom, and Zoom meetings. If you have questions about the packets or how to complete something, please contact your child’s teachers.


We know this is a very stressful time in all of our lives. Thank you for continuing to support our schools, our teachers, and our students.
