DEL NORTE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

PRINCIPAL'S NEWSLETTER - FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020

Dear Tiger Families,


We will NOT have school next week, Monday, March 16, 2020 through Thursday, March 19, 2020. The week after this (Monday, March 23-26, 2020) is spring break. Our hope is that we will be able to return to school Monday, March 30, 2020, but we will reassess closer to that date. If we are unable to return to our brick and mortar school, we will begin delivering instruction through an electronic format.


The school building will be closed to all activities and visitors during this time. Our custodial staff will begin a deep cleaning process in the coming days.


Please contact your child’s teacher and let them know if your household has access to internet.


We will have a plan to distribute iPads and any other instructional material your child will need. I will communicate this plan with you as I know more.


What can students work on this week before spring break?


1. Reading – students should continue to read every day. Please have your child read at least 20 minutes each day.


2. Math – students (2nd – 6th grade) have an Aleks account. They can work on their Aleks pie each day. There are also lots of fun apps for math for students of all ages.


3. Writing – students can write letters, keep a journal, or write creative stories.


Updates will be posted to our district website, www.dncsd.org. We will also send information though the text messaging system and teachers will continue to communicate with parents through Remind.


Stay Healthy!
