Inclement Weather - What does a Flexible Learning Day look like for an Elementary student?
In ROCORI, our elementary teachers have developed Flexible Learning Boards in case travel to school needs to be cancelled due to safety concerns. Here's what the day looks like for students at ROCORI elementary schools.
- Dr. Thein will message families via email and text as soon as safely possible to let families know if there is a Flexible Learning day.
- Elementary students should choose activities off of their flexible learning boards to complete for the day.
- Students will be marked present in school unless a family calls to say the student is ill or unable to participate in the Flexible Learning activities.
- An adult at home should sign the Flexible Learning Board and send it with their child to school the next in person learning day.
- Students have several days to complete the required activities on the board. Please work with your child's teacher if an extension is needed.
- Teachers are available from 9:00am to 2:00pm for email questions about the activities.
Temperatures are starting to drop so please have your child dressed appropriately for the weather. By November, please pack an extra set gloves and a hat in your child's backpack each day. If you need assistance with purchasing coats, hats, snow pants, boots, gloves or other cold weather gear please give me a call or email me. Thank you!
We will continue to take students outside for recess unless the following conditions occur:
-Temperature of 0 or below
-Wind chill of -10 or below
-Accumulation of rain or sleet
-Other situations that would require administrative decisions
