The Central Staff has been working incredibly hard to put together a plan for extended learning through the April 30 closure. I've attached the framework for both the PK-6th plan and the 7th-12th plan which was submitted to the Iowa Department of Education. You should find them to be very similar. We have also added a COVID-19 Educational Opportunities tab under "Explore" on our website. Extended learning will begin next week with teachers providing parents & students with critical learning standards and activities. A notification will be sent early next week when this is launched. A weekly reminder notification will also be sent every Monday through this closure.
We are also exploring ways to get students the materials they need while following social distancing guidance. This includes iPads for all of our elementary students. I am working on a plan that will have our bus drivers run their routes and deliver student materials. We will also have a set of hours where parents can drive up to the school and we will deliver students materials. More information will come out on this early next week.
This has been a time a learning and reflection for all of us. We deeply appreciate all the support and patience you have given us and we deeply miss our students and regular school routine.
Mr. Trenkamp & Mr. Reinhart
