Welcome to Distance Delivered Learning!

Today begins the first day of "classes" outside of the school building. Each teacher's class will look a bit different, between Zoom, Skype, Google Classroom, Class Dojo, other websites and paper resources. Some classes will have live "classes" online, while others will be mostly paper materials delivered weekly, with a range in between. Please keep in contact with your student's teacher if you have any questions or are having trouble accessing websites or learning materials or have any questions. If you are having technical/computer issues related to distance learning, please call 714-8878 for the KPBSD IT department.


We put together a single Google Doc for all the classrooms so you know what website the teacher is using to communicate and teach. The link is below.


Many staff members are working from home, or teleworking. If you call to speak with someone, please leave a voicemail and we will respond.


We are all in this together - Thank you for your patience as we navigate through this new experience together and work through challenges as we come across them.
