As you are aware we will be closed for at least one week. Students were sent home on Friday with work that they should complete at home. At that time, we were asked to provide work for at least two weeks. Included in the packet was a brief note explaining this. We are asking students to work on reading, writing, spelling, and math each day. Please work with your child to create a plan/schedule for how they will complete their school work. Students will require some parental support in this process. I will be available between 10am and 12pm Mon-Fri to answer email questions. Please encourage your child to use this time as an opportunity to communicate with me. Each student does have their own Gmail account, and they should use this account to communicate as much as possible. Earlier in the year, students were sent home with a laminated card with all of their login information. If your child prefers, the writing assignments that I sent home can be typed in Google docs and shared with me.
Thank you for supporting your child during this time. As a veteran teacher, I can honestly say that this is truly unprecedented. All we can ask is for everyone to do whatever they are able to do until this has passed. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
