Clover Flat Connection
April 17th, 2020
Hello Clover Flat Redhawk Families,
This message contains important information regarding our distance learning plan, chromebook check out, and our updated meal distribution schedules.
First, we are on this new learning journey together. We will work as a team to foster learning that best fits your situation at home. We all need grace and support as we move forward.
Distance Learning Plan
Our distance learning plan consists of paper packets with two weeks worth of work for students to complete to the best of their ability. Teachers have been asked to facilitate no more than 2 hours of work per day for K-5 and no more than 3 hours of work per day for 6-8. That being said, students work at different rates of speed and attention so if your child needs less work that is for you to decide or if they need more, please reach out to the teachers for support.
Packets are due April 27th and we will provide the next two weeks of work. The work can be dropped off to the school, sent by mail, or scanned or pictures of completed work to teachers by email.
To help students in need of technology during the school closures, we will be checking out Chromebooks to parents or guardians on April 27th. We understand that everyone does not have access or reliable connections, so this is optional and students will still receive paper packets as planned.
Chromebooks will be checked out with chargers and a copy of our Chromebook Policy. All devices are granted on a temporary basis and will need to be returned Monday, June 5th.
Monday, April 27th: Packets due. New Distance Learning Packets and Chromebook distribution
Second, it is IMPERATIVE that your child’s teacher has the best email address and phone number to use to contact your family/child.
Starting the week of April 14th, teachers have been establishing contact with each of their students’ families to make sure each child is connected. It is important that if you do not hear from your child’s homeroom teacher by Friday, April 17th that you reach out to the teacher’s email or phone and let them know the best way to contact you.
Third, our Food Services staff has been working diligently to provide breakfast and lunches to students and children in the community ages 2-18. Starting Monday, April 20th, meals will be distributed on Mondays ONLY and will consist of five days worth of meals. If you have children who attend other schools in the district, please visit the site that is most convenient for you. You do not need to travel to multiple sites to pick up meals at the site your children attend.
Lastly, know we are here for you and will be on this unusual adventure with you. We will be a team to support each other. Reach out if you have questions or to just make connections. Teachers want to hear from you and how you are doing.
Take care, and Stay Safe!
