March 18th Update

March 18, 2019

Dear Students and Parents:

The following information is a guideline for instruction and food delivery starting on March 25, 2020. As you read this you will have questions that we suggest you hold onto until you get information from your teacher(s). Once you receive assignments and instructions from staff, hopefully your questions will be answered. If not, our staff will return any email or voicemail within 24 hours of it being received.

INSTRUCTION:

  • Our goal is for students to complete one about hour of instruction per day. On March 23rd and 24th, we recommend that students read, play an educational game, watch a history documentary, or make a journal entry that encompasses one hour of their time.

  • Teachers will be sending out activities electronically for students to complete and return. If you do not have access to the internet, please let us know and we will see to it that hard copy assignments are delivered via the food bus that you will hear more about later in this document.

  • We have urged our teachers to be creative and to make lessons fun and enticing. 

  • As stated earlier, staff will be available to return phone calls and emails within 24 hours of receipt of those communications.

FOOD SERVICE:

  • A tentative plan is in place to feed any school age person age 18 and under beginning next week on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. 

  • Food will be delivered by one of our school buses between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the duration of the time that schools are closed. 

  • Students will be expected to meet the bus, practice the six foot separation for social distancing that has been mandated by the governor, and receive a bag of food that will include enough breakfast and lunch items to last until the next delivery.

  • Before next Wednesday, we hope to have an approximate time schedule for delivery to each area.

We continue to ask for your patience during these unprecedented times. As a school district, we are going to be flexible and understanding with our students and staff. We ask the same courtesy from you.

Sincerely,

Jim Witt

Superintendent
