Easley Weekly Update

Everything you need to know for the coming week.

March 23, 2020

A Note from the principal

Good morning Easley families,


I hope this message finds you all well during this unique and unprecedented time. Perhaps you were missing that Sunday call last night and wondering why it didn’t happen? Well, we are technically on spring break from March 16-April 3 so I have not sent any of the typical Sunday calls as that is usually the case over intersession break. Have no fear, when we return to school (either physically or virtually) the Sunday evening calls will resume! :) The next formal Easley update will actually be next Friday, April 3 (instead of Sunday) so parents can use the weekend to review all of the information/resources we will be sending, in the event we do not come back to school on the sixth. Of course, if there is any new information that comes out between now and then I will send that out as well.


Last week I had several virtual meetings with both district leadership and Easley staff as are we putting together extended learning opportunities to roll out the week we return; I am assuming it will be virtual at that point and the learning opportunities will all be optional. As of right now, the most up-to-date information is coming from the DPS website and social media accounts. Our District has put together a great deal of educational resources and packets for students and they can be accessed through the link below; paper copies of packets are available at the food sites. Stay tuned for more detailed Easley and classroom specific learning opportunities on April 3rd. In the meantime, many teachers are creating virtual class meetings with their students via Zoom or Google Meet in an effort to stay connected and you can expect even more of this when we return from the official Spring Break on April 6th. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us at Easley; we know this is a challenging time and are here to support you and your family in any way we can.
