School Schedule Update - Mon, Apr 20

With the latest announcement today stating schools will be closed for the rest of the year, we have a plan in place to meet the new criteria which is to meet the 160 instructional days. As we proceed into next week and the following weeks I have sent you an email describing how we will proceed with eLearning. Teachers will be in contact with your students each week, so please stay in contact with them. Again, eLearning is a challenge for just one day, let alone for several days. While lengthy periods of eLearning is not optimal for our student population, it is the best alternative in our current situation. From April 13th through May we will have a revised eLearning schedule for Tuesday through Friday. (See schedule below) We will also continue to have food services the month of April from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm at door 17 at the High School. We encourage parents to take advantage of this service. Applause go to our food services for making over 4000 meals over the past two weeks. If you have any questions or have concerns please email me, the administrators or your teachers. We are here to help during this difficult time. Stay healthy and continue to pray for our community. ** Student paper packets have been delivered and will be picked up on May 1st.
