Specials Update for Quarter 2

Asynchronous Instruction

Starting Monday, November 2nd, all specials teachers will sending out their asynchronous lessons weekly on Monday mornings. You will have time throughout the week to complete these assignments and specials teachers will be communicating that when they see you during the week.

Live/ Synchronous Instruction

Live specials times will remain the same until your child's assigned grade level returns to in person instruction. When your child's grade level returns, specials will move to 20 minute in person lessons throughout the week. Virtual learners will receive synchronous instruction in the afternoons on Fridays.

Return to Learn: Blended Experience

We are working hard to make sure the building is ready for students to return for in-person instruction. Our Group A first graders will walk our halls on Monday afternoon. As we want everyone to feel safe and understand updated procedures, we have created videos and for what you can expect as we bring students back. We encourage you to watch these with your students if they are returning to school for in-person instruction. Some of this communication is grade level specific and will be updated as each group phases back into the building.

District communication has also been updated on the district website. Please continue to check SD129's Blended Experience Webpage for up to date information and current guidance.

SD129 Student Health Screener

As we prepare for return to learn, all families returning for in person learning will need to create an account for health screenings. 1st grade families should have received this information from the district and other families will receive a district message as we near your student's grade level return date.
