Thank you for working with us to continue your child’s education at home. Your student should continue to complete school work at home, but the work will not be used to determine a child’s attendance during this break. We do not want school work to be an additional stress for your families during this time. We are providing material to support your child’s learning as best we can during our school closure. Our students are working hard daily, and we appreciate their effort and encourage them to continue to stay focused and on track.
As always, we are here to support you however that may be. You are encouraged to email your child’s teachers or principals with any questions you may have. They will be available daily to respond to any concerns. We have provided some helpful, free resources that families can access during this time.
