I hope this email finds you well. Here is a quick update for this week.
If you are finding that it is a challenge to manage work and life, along with supporting your child with online distance learning, please let us know. We can offer two increased levels of support if needed. The first can be specific one-on-one tutoring for your child. The second is what I would call student coaching, which is helping your child get online, manage assignments, and provide general encouragement to increase engagement in the lessons.
With the loss of jobs there could be some of you experiencing unemployment and financial hardships. Hopefully, the daily food delivery program is giving some relief, but this may not be enough. If you are or you know of someone experiencing extreme financial hardship, please let me know. We may be able to offer some additional support.
The fall opening of school could look much different than in the past. We may still be required to continue practicing social distancing by keeping our student and staff numbers down in the building. There is a team at the State level drafting guidelines for schools, which is expected to come out in June. I will keep you updated as I learn more.
STEM family kits:
You will notice in this week’s packets a special STEM mini-project envelope that includes all the materials your child will need for a fun family hands-on project idea.
Dates to remember:
- May 25- No school – Memorial Day
- June 19 – Last day of school
Let me know if you have any questions.
All the best,
Ralph Pruitt, Superintendent
