Get the Remind App to stay updated on school closing/elearning days: remind.jpg March 26, 2020
Dear MSD Families and Staff Members,
I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying spring break with your families. The extension of spring break through April 3rd is an opportunity for all of us to spend additional time taking care of our children. As we find ways to help them understand recent events, it is important we continue their daily routine. School is a big part of our children’s lives and we want to do all we can to keep them engaged in the learning process. With school buildings being closed throughout the state until May 1st, providing virtual learning opportunities during the month of April is our best option.
On Tuesday, April 7th, we will begin implementing off-site eLearning each week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays through the end of April. Our teachers are experienced in the effective use of eLearning to deliver meaningful instruction to their students. This method of instruction has kept our students safe during inclement weather and will do the same during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our long-term investment in one-to-one computing will definitely pay off over the next few weeks.
Our highly qualified classroom teachers will be directing the eLearning process through a variety of at-home learning activities. They have my full support to be creative in their design of innovative and interesting lessons. We will definitely be flexible on student attendance and assignment due dates. We all want this to be a positive experience for our students. Mondays and Fridays will be waiver days without any type of instruction.
I am confident that we can continue to serve the educational needs of our students during these unprecedented times. Hopefully, things will improve during the month of April so we can resume all school activities in May. We will definitely keep you informed as more information becomes available. Thank you very much for your continued support of MSD of Steuben County.
