Frequently Asked Questions

General Distance Learning

My child and I are feeling extremely overwhelmed by this distance learning plan in general. Are there any tips or advice on how we can deal with this?

Please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher for ideas on pacing the materials that went home. Each teacher sent families instructions on the types of materials that went home and the pacing for these materials. Two weeks' worth of material was sent home, to cover from March 16-27.
