Dear Parents and Students, We hope that everyone had a relaxing spring break and that you and your family are healthy and safe at home. For our fourth week of remote learning we have made some changes based on what we have learned so far. We do know that the district will have a plan to submit to the state very soon and that our remote learning will change in some ways. Because we have a better understanding about the time students should spend on school work, we are including a new sample schedule. Use this suggested time to plan your child’s day of learning at home. The assignments the students will have are smaller and focused on one objective for each content area. This does not mean they are easier.As a reminder for students, we are including some of the expectations for fourth grade here. Please discuss these with your child. It will not be new information but a review of what we have taught from the first day of school. Sample Schedule: it is recommended that fourth grade students work remotely for three hours. Please remember that students do not need to sit and work for three hours without stopping. Brain breaks and physical activity are important. Work may be completed in any order.
