Pioneer Special Edition 3/23

As you already know, in an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Douglas County School District are closed from Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 17th.


Following spring break, all students in Douglas County will be using remote learning.


Student's first assignments will be posted on the Pioneer Elementary Website, March 24th at 9:00 am. Monday, March 23rd has been a teacher workday to prepare for our transition to remote learning. Please see district communication below regarding this change:


Monday, March 23, will be a teacher planning day and there will be no student assignments on that day. We understand that having students at home can create additional stress, especially for working parents (whether you are working at home or in an office setting). Please know that our intent is to ensure that our students continue with learning during this closure. Remote learning is not meant to create additional hardships for our families. Students will be able to complete their assignments each day at a time that is convenient for your family. There is not an expectation that students will be online for a full school day.


Teachers may be utilizing a variety of online resources to support learning during this time. If your family is experiencing any difficulties accessing materials are linked websites, please contact your classroom teachers via email or use the Pioneer Remote IT Support linked on our Pioneer webpage.


We know that this transition to remote learning has been fast, and some students may experience difficulties. We hope that we can all work together to provide an enriching learning experience and support for our kids. Please reach out with any questions.
