Dear Clarenceville Families,
In our District, we offer a broad range of services to a broad range of students. There is no way to replicate what happens in our classrooms via the internet. However, we want learning to continue while we’re closed and we hope you’ll join us in encouraging your children to engage with enriching activities. You should know that we will not be assigning work or assignments for grades. We will instead be encouraging learning, reading, thinking and a review of skills.
Our expectations for student learning are as follows:
- Nothing is required for students. Our goal is to provide an opportunity to continue and deepen learning. Our hope is that students continue to engage in learning and that parents/guardians will support their learning.
- Even though there is no requirement, students are strongly encouraged to keep learning.
- There are no grades or credit requirements for this work at this time.
- Students may not be assessed on work they do during the closure and it will not be collected when they return.
Students in Grades 3-12 will be getting a lot of information via Google classroom. We encourage you to know your child’s login and password and that you are able to see the learning right alongside with them.
Students in Grades K-2 will be using a platform called Seesaw. We encourage you to sit along side of your child to support their at home learning journey.
There were opportunities for Chromebook check-out, if you missed the checkout and need a Chromebook, contact your building principal. If you need internet access at home, Comcast is offering free internet service during the Coronavirus outbreak. Click here for more information.
If you have not heard from your child's teacher, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and click on this link for additional resources. You can also use the same email if you need tech support at home.
In case you are wondering why nothing is required, we are choosing to not require assignments during this period of closure in order to ensure our students have equitable access to the work and that we are not punishing any student for how this closure impacts their family.
