• Elementary Teacher Guidance:

    Grade 3 – Grade 5

    You, as a classroom teacher, remain the best resource to help students with the work you are assigning to be completed.  Continue to use email, Canvas, your webpage, Google Classroom and/or Bloomz to directly connect with your students and parents. 


    The District’s goal during this extended, mandated school closure is to ensure that students, teachers and parents can experience success, while maintaining a high degree of flexibility and patience.  Teachers will prepare Planned Instruction activities in English Language Arts and Mathematics that will provide approximately 90 minutes of learning each day.  Teachers will also continue to post Enrichment and Review activities in Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Art, Music, etc.  This instruction can utilize any digital format (Canvas, Google Classroom, websites, etc.) at the discretion of the teacher.  The Enrichment and Review activities should focus on fun, engaging, and practical learning opportunities for our students.  Teachers are encouraged to collaborate with their colleagues remotely to develop both Planned Instruction as well as Enrichment and Review activities for learning.

    Grade 3 – Grade 5 Teachers Office Hours:

    Email continues to be an effective communication strategy.  All teachers will provide more information about this when they communicate with families. Beginning April 6, 2020, all teachers will be available for communication from 8 AM - 10 AM and 1 PM - 3 PM, Mondays through Fridays, with a 24-hour maximum response time.  The method of communication is up to each individual teacher but the method they decide upon must be posted to the teacher’s website by 3:00 PM on April 5th along with any information students/parents would need to make that communication.
