Red Team Weekly Update

Week of 3/2-3/6

Letter from the District

Dear Webster Groves Families,


School Districts across the state have been asked by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to develop plans for e-learning/remote learning should there be a need to close schools for an extended period of time due to weather or illness.


In an effort to assess the computing needs of all of our families, we ask that you fill out this short survey to determine what, if any, support the district can help provide should the decision to close schools for an extended period of time be made.


Our sincere hope is that we will not have to use any plan that is put in place.


Please fill out a separate survey for each school-aged child and respond to this survey by Thursday, March 12th.
