Coronavirus Updates

EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSURE UPDATE AS OF 4/24/20 @ 12PM 

Timeline and Guidance



Remote Learning Packet Pick Up

For families that request a paper copy of the Remote Learning Packet, pick up day at the buildings will be Monday, May 4th, from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. 



Pick Up Student Supplies

We will conduct a pick - up of student supplies on May 27th, 28th, and 29th. We are currently drafting a schedule for supply pick up that will alleviate traffic congestion while practicing social distancing. We will share the schedule in the next couple of weeks. 


Registration Packets

Registration packets will be mailed. They can be dropped off May 27 – 29 during supply pick up. 


Report Cards

Report Cards can be picked up on May 27 – 29 during supply pick up. 


Grades

Every grade level will require one graded assignment per subject, per week for the remainder of the school year. For example, one grade per week in math, one grade in reading, etc. Teachers will share with student’s the specific assignments they will need to turn in for a grade. We encourage families to complete and review other assigned work and to not “give up” on any subject. Exposure to subjects is critical at this time as we prepare for next school year. Teachers remain available for feedback. 


Once again, we thank our parents and families for your cooperation and dedication during these difficult circumstances. Please continue to check our website and Facebook pages in the days to come.
