We all find ourselves in unprecedented territory. Many parents are being asked to work from home while their children engage in remote learning. We want to assure you that our top priority is to partner with families to make remote learning as trouble-free as possible. Our desire is to provide learning opportunities for students that do not put more strain on families.
Our goal is to provide students with a balance of both online and offline activities to engage in learning at home. We have asked our teachers to be cognizant of screen time, give students choice, capitalize on the home environment, value quality over quantity, remove hard deadlines, and to be mindful of the variety of situations families are facing during this time. While remote learning is certainly not the ideal situation that any of us want to find ourselves in, we are committed to making it as flexible as possible for families.
We have created “A Guide to Remote Learning” for each level that will get posted to Schoology and social media each Friday. The purpose of these guides is to provide students and families with optional resources to use during this time. There has been an overwhelming amount of resources and information posted online, and it is our desire to weed through all of that for you and provide a streamlined format to use with your children, should you choose.
We are here to support our students and families. While remote learning is not ideal, we will work together to inspire and guide our students. If there is any way we can support you during this time, please don’t hesitate to reach out first to your child’s teacher or principal, or to anyone at the District Administrative Office.
