Holt Update

Special Edition

Holt Families,

We hope you all are staying safe as we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Our teachers are working hard to make the transition to online learning as seamless as possible. We appreciate your patience and feedback. Though we might not be meeting physically at school, I want to remind you that our students are expected to complete and turn in assignments if they have the means to do them. Students in 2nd - 4th grade continue to earn grades for their weekly assignments. If you are in need of assistance in regards to your child's work, please contact your child's teacher. They are available to help you through this process. We understand the difficulty of the situation and want to assist you as much as possible.

Please reach out to me or my administrative team if you need any assistance and let our scholars know we miss them very much.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) have been developed for students and families. A comprehensive list is below.

Do you need a device?

All middle and high school students have been issued electronic devices from the district. If a middle or high school student has a device that is not working or denied accepting a district device, he or she may contact the Technology Department by emailing TechHelp@misdmail.org.

We're actively working with principals to provide devices for students in grades 3-6. Please contact your school principal if you need to request a device.

Special Education Referrals

A parent or guardian has the right to request a special education evaluation at any time. It is best to submit this request in writing to your school’s principal or to the school district’s special education director. If your child is pre-school age and not yet enrolled in school, send the letter to the district’s special education director.
