Remote Learning


Look for the K-5 remote learning framework from your child's/ children's teacher Monday morning. Each week your child’s/children’s teacher(s) will send you the weekly work by 8:30. The framework was designed to be accessible and manageable for families. Your child/children will be assigned two English arts assignments, two math assignments, specialist assignments (music, PE, library, counseling), and supplementary science/social studies assignments. Weekly assignments will be due to your child’s/children’s teachers by noon on Friday. Therefore, students can work on the weekly assignments whenever it fits into your family’s schedule. Teachers will be reaching out, if they have not heard from a student in a couple of days. We want to stay connected.


Keep us updated on how learning is going. We recognize that we all are navigating different challenges during this unprecedented time. If you are struggling to get work completed, reach out. If you need more work for your child/children, reach out. If your child is feeling sad, reach out. If you are feeling overwhelmed or confused, reach out. We want to know how we can support your family.


Mrs. Wilkins will be reaching out to families on Monday’s ) if students work from the prior week has not been submitted. The goal of the phone call will not be a “gotchya”; the phone call will be an inquiry on how Mrs. Wilkins can help support your child’s/children’s education. We may no longer be in our building, but we have already shown that our community is strong and will work hard to best support the needs of all our students.

Office Hours

Building wide all staff will be available online from 9:30-10:30. Each teacher has selected additional time to connect and answer any questions you might have. This isn't to say that teachers are not online during other times. However, our teachers are also balancing virtual learning with their own children at home and are expected to participate in several virtual meetings, so please be understanding and patient. E-mails will be returned within 24 hours.
