Remote Learning Day

Given the impending winter storm arriving later today into tomorrow, Thursday, 12/17/2020 will be a remote learning day for all students. Students will follow their typical school-day schedule within the remote learning platform. Additional information has been or will be provided from the building administration at each building with specific details necessary for tomorrow.

While the remote learning platform may present with challenges, we need to be prepared to switch to remote instruction for all students at any time related to COVID-19 cases. By providing this notification to caregivers, families, and staff early in the day, this will allow everyone to be better prepared for this shift tomorrow. Students will soon be heading into an eleven-da vacation break from school, and we are hoping to minimize additional disruption to teaching and learning in this manner.

Should the storm result in significant power outages leading to a different decision, you may hear from me again. However, at this time, staff and students will be remote tomorrow. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

Sincerely,

Susan E. Kustka, Ed.D.
