Monday, Nov. 2
Buses will run Monday, Nov. 2 to transport students to and from school and activities. If a driver needs to adjust their route due to the inability to make it safely down a street, turn the bus around, or the road is blocked due to downed power lines or storm debris, the transportation department will send out a text message to parents that the route will have to be adjusted. If you have not signed up for text messaging from the district, follow the directions here:
Remote Learning Days
With the completion of the district’s 1-1 initiative, every student in the district now has a device, making disruptions to learning caused by school building closures a thing of the past. When possible, these days can now be educationally productive and engaging.
During remote learning days, students should treat the day as a remote learning day. Students should plan to do the following:
- Log in to Canvas and make progress on their work to be counted present.
- Connect with teachers via email or Canvas to ask questions or get feedback on assignments if needed.
- Follow an Individualized Education Plan if provided by teachers.
- Make some time to play in any snow that has fallen!
Attendance will be taken on these remote learning days and teachers will be available for questions/feedback between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 pm, their normal work hours for the day via email or Canvas. Students whose family chooses to not participate in the e-learning day are reported as absent. Students who are counted absent will be responsible for completing the required work on their own time as they would in any other situation in which they may have been absent from school. Parents should take a few minutes to explain the expectations to your children.
Why do we need remote learning days? These days provide for continuity of learning and classroom instruction, which is vitally important during an unprecedented school year when students have already lost so much. Remote learning days also negate the need to add additional days to the end of the school year.
