Hello King Families!


We hope this update finds you well!


We are pleased to write with further clarity on the remote learning experience for your children. Educators have worked tirelessly over the last 5 DESE days to grow their "educator toolbox", engaging in workshops and collaborative discussions on social-emotional wellness, instructional design, equity, and technology tools.


Priorities this week will expand to include a focus on family outreach for every educator. You can expect your child's teacher to reach out to you via phone or video conference (using google meet) to allow for introductions and engage in conversations about the beginning of the school year.


Please note: The district has created this "Return to Learn" page that includes timely planning updates and resources for families.


In this update you will find:


  • links for grade level schedules for remote learning
  • School-wide schedule
  • a list of the technology tools being used with elementary students this year
  • photos of some of our staff and classrooms
  • important dates


Respectfully,


Allison Benabdallah
