  • Online Education   DISTANCE LEARNING INFORMATION -- Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020

    Students in Grades 6-8 will continue to follow their daily schedule online utilizing virtual classrooms through CANVAS.  Grades 6-8 teachers will be available for students online during class time on discussion boards, chats, and conferences.  Students are expected to be "on time" and sign in online at the beginning of each class for attendance purposes.  All other teachers, including special education teachers and Basic Skills teachers, other Educational Support Professionals, along with our Middle School Counselor, Mr. Anthony Cinelli, will be available via email to answer any student or parent questions.  

    In Preschool - Grade 5, we are transitioning to our new plan for online Distance Learning.  Parents are asked to visit the individual web page of their child's Homeroom Teacher on our elementary school website every weekday morning at the start of the school day.   Our students will have the opportunity to participate in a well-balanced variety of virtual lessons that include teacher-prepared video instruction, publisher-prepared website activities, live-video opportunities for teacher-student interaction, as well as pencil and paper assignments. In addition, please remember to visit your child's Special Subject Area teachers' web pages for weekly activities that are incorporated as part of our comprehensive instructional program.  All teachers, including Special Subject Area teachers, Education Support Professionals, and our Elementary School Counselor, Mrs. Nancy Sanders, will be available via email to address any student or parent questions.  

    Thank you for your cooperation as we continue on our new distance learning adventure together!
