Tomorrow, March 30, begins the official launch of our Distance Learning program for the students of our district.

Throughout the past two weeks, your child and family have received various communications from teachers, principals, and our schools introducing the concept of Distance Learning. Many of you will receive your child’s curriculum packet tomorrow on your child’s regular bus route. Remember that the routes are running two hours later than on a normal school day. I will ask your patience for tomorrow because of the volume of material as well as meals to hand out to students, there is a chance that some routes may run a few minutes late. Some parents have made arrangements to pick up their child’s materials at school–please make sure you contact the school’s office if there is a problem with picking it up tomorrow.

As with any new program, we know there will be a few hiccups along the way. The best way to guarantee that the Distance Learning program is effective for your child is to make sure that we have two-way communication set up and active between the school and families. We will be in contact with your child and family each and every week, and we ask that you contact your teacher or school with any questions or concerns along the way.

This is new for all of us and keeping in constant communication when questions or concerns arise is the best way to proceed as smoothly and effectively as possible. No question is too small or unimportant to ask. Please contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. Thank you.
