Preschool Distance Learning

Hello parents and caregivers,

ELC Staff and students are off to a great start this Fall! Students are connecting with their teachers and staff Monday through Friday with a daily zoom meeting. We love seeing our students and we encourage families to work with their teachers to ensure you are receiving our daily Google slides in Seesaw. Our daily Google slides are supporting all of the areas in which a preschool student needs to grow!


Monday - Academic Activities

Tuesday - Gross Motor, Fine Motor & Language Activities

Wednesday - Academic Activities

Thursday - Social Emotional Learning Activities

Friday - Speech Language Activities


If you have any questions regarding Seesaw, the daily activities, or the daily zoom meeting please reach out to your child's teacher. They are here to support you and your child.

Back to School Night - Wednesday, September 30th

Our Back to School Night will be in a virtual format this school year. Our teachers will be communicating with you in the next two weeks with a zoom link to meet as a parent community with the teachers.

Self Certification App

Some of our students have started coming back to ELC due to their complex needs or for Kindergarten testing. If your child will be visiting ELC, there is a new app that parents must submit to self certify that their child is clear of COVID symptoms. Please read the following information from our district.
