Dear Parents,

While we never in our wildest dreams imagined we would be rolling out a distance-learning for our students but we are. We am interested and excited to see what is to come over these next few weeks. While this situation is far from ideal, we hope you will be as pleasantly surprised as we are.

We have created a Dojo classroom which is an online behavior management system intended to foster positive student behaviors and classroom culture. We can use Dojo to keep parents up to date on student progress and classroom happenings. This will also allow students to work independently and at there own pace while allowing me to monitor progress. Students can access this through the app and on a computer. 

We are also attaching apps to download and interactive web sites to give an alternative that will keep children connected to their school community while maintaining their academic progress. These are just suggestion. We understand that many of you may still be working and have other responsibilities. Please do not feel pressure to execute this in its entirety, but these are some things you can do to provide some consistency for your child and, hopefully, independence.


All that being said, we know that there may be flaws in the execution. We hope that you will understand that this uncharted territory for me. Please have patience and bear with us as we move forward.
