during COVID 19 School Closure
Continuous Learning Activities
Due to the extended closure, we will begin a continuous learning model for Focused Learning Activities through May 22. It is imperative that we continue the learning that was taking place at school prior to the closure on March 13.
By April 20, 2020 and continuing through May 22, teachers will send out activities through Google Classroom or through email.
Teachers will provide 3-5 learning activities each week for each subject area.
Follow teacher instructions for completion and submission of student work.
Students will be graded for participation in these activities.
Paper packets will also be available for students with no or limited technology access.
Attendance will be taken through completion of assignments.
Student promotional guidelines have been revised (see Pupil Progression Addendum)
Please reach out if you have any questions. Email Loren Decuir at firstname.lastname@example.org or your child's teacher.
Additional Supplemental Resources
Please continue to utilize these additional supplemental resources to supplement your the Focused Learning Activities and to facilitate home learning for your children during this time. The intent of these resources is to provide reinforcement of the learning that has occurred this year.
Please check back often. The information will be updated as needed during the closure.
Approximate recommended times to devote to learning each day for each grade level are as follows:
Pre-K – approximately 1 hour per day
Kindergarten – 2nd Grade – approximately 1.5 hours per day
3rd – 4th grade – approximately 2 hours per day
5th, 6th, 7th, 8th grade – approximately 2- 3 hours per day
9th grade - approximately 2 - 3 hours per day
