I wanted to provide some clarification for our elementary parents as we move towards continuing remote learning on Friday’s. Remote learning means that students will be still learning, in a different location. As a result of a national backorder on Chromebooks, computers have been handed out first to our students in grades 3 and 4, which will allow the older students to access their learning online. As we work through outfitting the entire building with computers, we will make a decision on whether to have K-2 students carry their computers home for the weekend. Currently, teacher’s in grades K-2 have been given the directive to provide instructional learning packets (no computers) for their students to lessen the stress for parents/guardians. These packets will be handed out on Thursday evening and expected to be returned upon arrival on Monday. Returning the completed packet will count as being present for attendance purposes. Please know teachers will still be available via Google Meet, e-mail, phone calls, etc. throughout the instructional day.
Additionally, with the decision to move to remote Friday’s, picture day has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 13th and retakes along with our online students will be on Wednesday, Nov 18th.
Your partner in learning,
Mr. Timothy Pancake
