Distance Learning Academy K-5

Weekly Update - January 15

Dear DLA Families

The Distance Learning Academy teachers and support staff are thrilled to start offering our onsite support. Here are some helpful reminders as we start to use our campus at North Gate Mall again.


  • Wear you mask over your nose and your mouth.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Keep distance between you and friends. We are looking for 6 feet between students and staff.



Doing these simple things will keep us all safe and healthy.

Your Feedback is Wanted

Please take a couple minutes to complete a 6 question program survey/evaluation. We are collecting this data to inform our decisions and improve our services for students and families. Our goal is to provide the very best services and your feedback is critical to making this happen. We are also collecting information regarding your interest in continuing with the Distance learning Academy next school year.

Winter Assessment Benchmarking

Thank you for participating in our Winter Assessments. We are finishing our Winter assessments next week with our Kindergarten and First grade students. Taking the assessment remotely can be challenging.


On behalf of Ms. Wille, thank you for your patience.

Additional Friendly Reminders

  • Focus on Reading and Math
  • Ritual and Routines - Stay to your daily schedule
  • Remember that your teacher continues to be available during school hours (7:00-3:00) for help (call, text, email)!
