Distance Learning (beginning on April 13, 2020)
As stated in previous communications, we are excited to announce that the districtwide Distance Learning program will begin on April 13, 2020. Google Classroom will be used as the platform for Distance Learning where teachers post assignments (e.g., article reviews, videos, and recorded lessons), students complete and submit assignments, and teachers provide feedback.

Computer Access
Students need to have access to computers from home to engage in Distance Learning. To ensure access to Distance Learning for all students, the District is providing computers to students without computer access at home. Please contact your principal or you child’s teacher if you need to request a computer for your child.

Internet Access
If you currently do not have Wi-Fi access, we strongly recommend that you obtain FREE temporary (60 days) Wi-Fi access through Charter/Spectrum. To enroll, call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.

We understand that a successful Distance Learning program requires a strong partnership between our staff, students, and parents. We thank you for taking on many additional roles and responsibilities during School Closure. To promote optimal distance learning experiences for your child, we request your continuous support to ensure that your child is fully engaged in completing the learning activities and stays connected with his/her teachers and classrooms daily.
