Lea este artículo en español

As we near the end of the first week of the extended Spring Break, we recognize you may be starting to look ahead to the time period after March 27 and what it may mean for the ongoing education of your child.

The Governor announced this evening, Wednesday, March 18 that schools should plan on remote learning through at least April 17. Given this, the district will open for remote learning and modified operations starting the week of March 30.

Remote Learning

We are committed to providing students with remote learning opportunities after the extended Spring Break. At this time, we are moving forward with plans to launch remote learning for students on Wednesday, April 1. 

We know this is uncharted territory and recognize families will be in different places in their ability to focus time on remote learning based on life factors, family matters and internet accessibility. With this in mind, our goal is to design a remote learning plan that allows families and students to complete assignments throughout the day at times that work best for them.

We will share more details soon, including teacher office hours, student expectations and how we will support our specialized student populations during this time. The first day of the remote learning plan, April 1, will be devoted to teachers making a connection with their students after this lengthy break and establishing readiness for remote learning.
