Dear Parents, Faculty and Staff,
As we all know, due to COVID, life is different. As we begin the winter months and snowstorms become more likely, we would like to inform you that the school district will make a decision based on the severity of the incoming storm as to whether a traditional snow day or a remote learning day will be called. If a remote learning day is called the plan will be as follows:
· The district will call a traditional snow day or a remote learning snow day by no later than 7:00 pm the day before a storm to give families time to make arrangements for daycare if needed and give the bus companies time to notify their drivers.
· If there is a potential snow day, students will bring their Chromebooks home in preparation for a remote learning day. If a remote learning snow day is called, teachers will work remotely and communicate work expectations. If a remote learning day is not called, students will bring their Chromebook and materials to class the next day.
· On a remote learning day teachers will post assignments in Google Classroom (Seesaw for PK-1st) for students to complete for the remote learning snow day. It is recommended for students to download their assignments from Google Classroom to their Chromebook. This allows access to the assignment if power is lost.
· On remote learning snow days, teachers and paras will provide office hours and support, via Google Meet, for students between 9am and 10am. *Power outages may impact the ability to offer online support on remote learning days.
· All other district staff should contact their immediate supervisor for directions about whether they will need to come in the building or work from home on a given assignment.
