From the Principal...Kristy McKnight
As a reminder, we are on Winter Break from Monday, December 20th - Friday, December 31st. Then, Monday, January 3rd is a School Improvement Day, meaning a non-attendance day for students. Classes resume on Tuesday, January 4th.
Happy New Year!
Shield Testing & Vaccination
During the end of November and the month of December, students in Empower will be experiencing new modules! The fifth graders will get an introduction to World Languages with our FLEX module, and our K-4 students will address a need in their community with our Make a Difference Module.
E-LEARNING PLAN AND EMERGENCY DAYS
The School Board has approved an E-Learning plan that gives the district the option to offer remote learning in place of emergency days. Currently, our last day of school is Tuesday, May 24, which is the week before Memorial Day. As we move into the winter months, we want to update you on the plan for how the district will manage emergency days and e-learning days.
If we experience inclement weather, the first three days will be “snow days” that will be made up at the end of the school year on May 25, 26, and 27 as needed.
Subsequent emergency days will be remote days so the last attendance day will still be before Memorial Day.
If there is a long stretch of inclement weather (blizzard, polar vortex, etc.), we may split the days into “snow days” and e-learning days so as to not have too many non-attendance days in a row.
