We have heard questions from some parents about how school work will be distributed during this extended closure. Each building has developed its own plans for their students, so your child’s teacher or other building staff member is always the best one to contact about plans for your child’s class.
Please note that ALL student Google Classroom passwords have been reset to minimize confusion over forgotten passwords. Secondary students using Google Classroom should have received a letter with new log-in information. Students who are still having issues logging in should fill out the Account Help survey in the sidebar to the left.
Additional resources for elementary students, including reading, math, special subjects, and enrichment activities, can be found here. Please contact your child's teacher or other building contact person if you have questions.
