SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS 

·         While our general education students can choose to utilize remote learning environments to maintain or strengthen their current skills, we are aware that these types of learning opportunities do not constitute the specially designed instruction we are honored and obligated to provide to our special education students.

·         School buildings will be CLOSED during this time to allow our custodial crews to deep clean.

 

TECHNOLOGY ACCESS 

·         Over the weekend, parents will receive a telephone survey from us. The purpose of this survey is to assess our family’s access to internet and computers for online learning. 

·         We are working to provide internet access and internet-enabled devices to families who may need them. Devices will only be available for students in Grades 3-12.
