RE: Round 3 of Remote Learning
On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week, teachers worked via video conferencing across the district to create our last round of Remote Learning for all four elementary schools in grades PreK - 5. This last round will be for the dates of May 18th through June 5th. On Monday, May 18th, you should receive an email link from teachers with a newly revised menu. The links for the menu will also be available on the district website. The new plans for these menus include projects for Science or Social Studies. Our learning menus for Round 2 and for this final Round 3 will go out digitally for several reasons; to increase the types of learning materials for families and for the safety and well-being of all of our staff and the community. As you know, our school buildings remain closed at this time. This follows the recommendations and advice of the Department of Education, the Maine CDC, and the Governor's office on the closing of our facilities and how best to provide remote learning opportunities for all students. For these reasons, paper copies will not be provided to families.
While you are working at home continue to email teachers your questions regarding our remote learning menus and any links that they may have provided as well as any questions with Dreambox, Lexia, or eSpark programs. Teachers and specialists will continue to be available from 9-2 to support you with your questions. Also, many teachers hold weekly check-ins and Zoom meetings to touch base with your child and the whole class so please take advantage of these opportunities. We understand and know that everyone is working to the best of their abilities during these rapidly changing and challenging times.
