A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT RE: SCHOOL CLOSURES

As of noon today, all district activities are cancelled or postponed during this closure.   All facility use, events, and rental activities will be cancelled. Athletic practices and competitions will be canceled until further notice.

Remote Learning Format:

  • Monday and Tuesday will be E-Learning days.  We will use these days to test our system and ensure that all students have access to our remote learning environment.  
  • On Wednesday we will transition into a full remote learning program with class specific assignments developed by our dedicated staff members who have worked hard to prepare online lessons. 

I appreciate your patience and understanding during one of the most challenging and rapidly evolving situations in modern memory. I recognize the stress and anxiety this situation is causing for many of us.  Closing our schools for an extended period is a complex undertaking. An extended school closure is compounded by the fact that we have many district families and staff members for whom a closing will cause a significant hardship.

Although this is our first foray into remote learning for an extended period, I am confident that we are well prepared.  Additional details will be communicated over the coming days. 

Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Sincerely,

Thomas A. Smith, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
