Parent Letter from Mrs. Thomas about School Dismissal

Submitted by teresa.beebe on Fri, 03/13/2020 - 20:40

Dear Parents:

As you are aware all K-12 schools in Utah are dismissed for the next two weeks. During this time students will participate in at home learning. These days will be counted as school days, and students are expected to continue their learning and school work. Teachers will be sending out information to you no later than Tuesday with specifics for your child’s class.

Monday and Tuesday teachers will be preparing at home learning for students. This will include a combination of engaging learning activities, online learning and support, computer programs, and possible work packets. Information will be coming to you on Monday or Tuesday detailing how to access the on-line instruction and the process to drop off/pick up packets. Wednesday we will begin this new learning experience.

Breakfast and lunch will be available each day. However, you will need to call the school between 8-9 am to reserve a lunch for your child. You will need to come to the school between 11am-12 noon, to the lunchroom door, to pick up student meals. Food will not be consumed at school. It will be a grab-and-go type system. Breakfast will be served from 8-8:45 am in the same fashion. You do not need to call in to reserve a breakfast. Please note that students must get breakfast and lunch from the schools they attend.

Teachers will be at school each day during regular school hours. They will be sending lessons and checking on student progress regularly.

We will have a process to provide online and other support as needed. We realize that it may be a little tricky to navigate multiple children. We will do our best to provide multiple ways of learning so that everything is not on the computer. The specifics of how this will work will be emailed to you by Tuesday.

The logistics of this new experience is an adventure! Processes may change the next few days. Please be patient with us as we navigate this unique situation.

I will continue to keep you updated as best I can. Thank you so very much for your patience, support, and help!

Please feel free to call or email with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Cami Thomas
