Teachers reported back to work today to begin developing lessons for students. For the teachers, this week is a planning and preparation week. The preparation will include the development of both virtual or packet learning. Packet learning can either be emailed or delivered through the US mail. The delivery method will be determined through teacher contact with parents and students. All lessons will be posted online on the district website and should be available on the district mobile app. All assignments should be in place on Friday for the week of March 30th. Future weekly lessons will be posted by Friday for the next week.
The district is willing to send home school devices for your students. If devices are needed in your homes, please contact the building your student attends to arrange to pick up. Parents, if you could update your phone numbers and email addresses, this would be much appreciated.
As with anything new, and only having a week to accomplish this, there will be issues arise. If something isn’t working correctly, please let the buildings know. They will do their best to see that a solution is resolved.
A big thank you goes out to all of those involved in the preparation and delivery of meals on Monday. This group provided 394 meals to the students of the school district! After the first day, this group has re-evaluated the process and have come up with ideas to streamline the process to help in the preparation and delivery process. Please remember, the program is open to all children ages 1-18. The Yates Center drive-through is open from 11-noon Monday through Friday, located in the southwest parking lot of the high school.
