ALL SCHOOL SITES TO MOVE TO DISTANCE LEARNING

Staffing concerns at the Middle School and a continued rise in student absences in the Elementary School make it necessary for ALL DEWEY SCHOOL SITES to transition to distance learning for the rest of this week (Wednesday, 1/19/22 - Friday, 1/21/22). We expect to return to in-person learning on Monday, 1/24/22 at all 3 school sites.


The Elementary and Middle School has been able to prepare for distance learning today. Please refer to the information below for your child's school and grade level. If your child's grade level receives distance learning through use of Chromebooks and is without internet access, please contact your child's school office for support.
