We Are Here to Support Your Family During Remote Learning
Today's announcement that students will not return to school this year was not a shock and we know that it was made in the best interest of our students. However, it is also a sad time for our MACS family because we miss our students. Our main purpose for serving as educators is to serve our students in ways that will empower them for lifelong learning. Please know that your families are a part of our MACS family and we miss you. We are here to support in any way possible.
We know that supporting your child's remote learning can be a struggle and some families may be frustrated. If this is happening for your family, begin with contacting your child's teacher. As a district, we are committed to providing you with up-to-date resources, ideas for at home learning and ways to keep your child engaged in the learning process.
We have also developed a new Learning Support for Families Google doc, this will be published on our MACS website as well.
