March Newsletter #2

Parent Resources to Keep Students Productive

Principal's Message

Parents/Guardians-


As schools across our district have closed we wanted to make sure you had access to resources to keep your students productive during this time. Below you will find links to a number of activities, games, and academic lessons.


Please also know that the district will continue to provide lunches for students as needed Monday-Friday. Also, families that do not have a computer at home will be able to check out a Chromebook here at SBE.


Any activity/assignment ideas sent out by me or any SBE teacher are not required.


Should you have any questions or needs, please feel free to call the main office number here at SBE. We will either take your call or get back to you asap.


See below for all the links.


In good health,


James
