Dear Parents and Families,
This is an incredibly difficult time for our community, and we are so proud of all the ways we have come together already. With schools on an extended closure through April 24, we are putting together resources to support continued learning for students while school remains closed. In the spirit of getting started and learning together, our first phase of distance learning activities will start district-wide on Wednesday, April 1. This week, families can expect:
- Opportunities to Connect
○Teachers will connect with students online or by phone each week.
○Weekly lessons will be posted on our school website (hes.sumnerschools.org).
○Parents are encouraged to reach out to teachers and principals with questions or requests for additional support.
- Opportunities to Learn
○Teachers will email recommendations for independent reading, as well as direct links to ELA and math lessons for the day. Additionally, physical fitness and mindfulness activities are encouraged each day to ensure health and wellness.
○School leaders will identify and enact plans with families who have limited access to technology. More details to come.
○Families review the schedule recommendations below for K-5 to help guide you in developing learning routines that best support the individual needs of your family.
We recognize that each family is navigating unique challenges, so we hope that this guidance will support you and your family as we figure out distance learning together.
Stay Safe and Love to you all,
Ms. Swafford & Mr. Spears
