Elementary Learning information

in-person learning

All elementary school students have the option to attend school in person, five days a week, Monday through Friday. Schools, staff, and students will follow health protocols as outlined by our state and local health officials. Teachers will adapt curricula to take advantage of "blended learning" as much as possible. Blended learning incorporates more digital learning tools, which will create smoother transitions to temportary online learning when necessary. Students are welcome to switch to our fully remote online learning at semester's end. Please consult your building administration if student needs to change their mode of learning.

Supporting our students' social emotional needs

New reports show the young adults have been hit hard with our "new normal," so it is very important that students and families act swiftly and proactively if/when extra support is needed. Please talk to your school counselor and reach out the the variety of organizations in our community that are designed to bridge the gap, when extra resources are needed.

Recess, specials, after school, and field trips

Our school district follows guidelines from state and local health officials.

Additional resources for reading and math

Elementary students can also use several online programs to get additional support with reading through Lexia or for additional support for math through Zearn.  These are both online programs that students can work on at their own pace and do not require a teacher to provide the instruction.  If you do not know your child's log-in for Lexia or Zearn, please contact your child's teacher.
