Here is where you will find all of the lesson plans for each grade level. This content will be updated as it becomes available so please check back frequently for new information. 


Academic Expectations

Our teaching staff is working to finalize assignments, lessons, and learning opportunities for students, using both electronic and print resources. We appreciate your patience as we work to prepare lessons that help students review what they have learned, extend their knowledge, or reinforce individual student learning goals. While students will not physically attend school, they are expected to complete daily assignments. 

Starting on March 18, teachers will slowly begin the online teaching process.  Teachers will be communicating to parents and students through Parent Square and/or Google Classroom.  If you have not heard from your child’s teacher by March 18, please contact them. We are working on a plan to distribute devices to those students that need them as soon as possible.  Please let your child’s teacher know if you need hard copies sent home. We will address these on an as needed basis.  

Below and on each school’s website homepage, we have outlined a plan for how instruction and learning will occur during this long-term closure. 

We are shifting our education from the classroom with four walls to online learning for students.  We understand that transitioning from the classroom to online learning will require computing devices for students.  For more information, please read the Student Technology section of this letter. The instructional activities, or how to access them, will be listed on the website under Student Distance Learning Assignments and Opportunities.

The instructional activities will be listed on the website under Student Distance Learning Assignments and Opportunities

Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities will use online learning assignments or individualized learning packets assigned by the classroom teacher and/or their intervention specialist. If you have an evaluation or IEP meeting scheduled in the next three weeks, meetings will be held over the phone or at the central office.  A member of the special education team will contact you.

Student Technology

If students do not have access to a computing device at home, the district will arrange to loan the student a device. Information will be updated on the website as devices become available and once all information is received from our parent survey.  If you indicated that you need a device, someone will contact you with more information.  

Students can use Google Suites to complete work even if you are not connected to the internet. While offline, you can still create, view, and edit files on Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Click here for more information on how to use these tools offline.
