Core Academics Begin This Week

Dear Huffman Families,

We are beginning our core academic program this week online. The live Zoom sessions will focus on language arts and math. Remember, if you are unable to attend the live Zoom class, please access the tasks, assignments, and corresponding instructional videos in your student's Canvas course at a time that works for your family's schedule. We hope this option provides the flexibility you may need. You will also find tasks and assignments for science, social studies, and other content areas posted in Canvas as well. Hopefully, you were able to pick up your student's print materials last week. We understand this is a challenging learning model, especially for families of our youngest students. If we can simplify or improve in any way, please don't hesitate to reach out and share your feedback. Please talk proactively with your classroom teacher. They are working hard everyday to simplify and hone their learning platforms. We appreciate your energy and commitment.

Please continue to share your feedback. Whether it is celebrations or concerns, we want to hear from you. We will do everything we can to support your student's learning.

Thank you, Chris

Chris Opitz, principal
