Important Information Ahead of Spring Break
MARCH 26, 2020 - Today, we will begin a process of doing important updates every week for parents to streamline communication. Spring Break is next week March 30-April 3 and our Distance Learning Plan begins for students on Monday, April 6.
Beginning Monday, April 6, 2020, our district will start distance learning. The distance learning model of delivery will continue to provide students with new learning while sustaining previous learning. Tasks will be meaningful and important to student learning goals and outcomes. Teachers will focus on setting up routines and structures to support students and families. Prior to the start of distance learning, please make sure you and your child can log on to SeeSaw (elementary students) and Canvas (secondary students).
The schedule for Quarter 3 and 4 are as follows:
- April 6-9: End of Quarter 3
- April 10: Teacher Grading Day - No Distance Learning
- April 13: Grades for Quarter 3 posted, Quarter 4 begins (Distance Learning)
