We hope you all enjoyed some down time together during Spring Break. As we return to digital school this week, you can expect some adjustments as grade level teams address issues that have been brought to their attention with regard to expectations. You will most likely see the same types of assignments but teachers will let you know what must be completed each day and what assignments are optional depending on life at home and what is feasible.
We appreciate the feedback you have provided and are working hard to ensure that all needs are being met. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions about expectations or concerns about the volume of learning opportunities and how to select what is most important.
Every child should be connecting daily with his or her teacher. Students will be invited to face to face meetings each week and are expected to attend. Teachers will also be working together to design direct instructional opportunities as this week progresses. Please understand that the staff is well aware of the challenges this situation creates for parents and children at home. They are doing their best to prioritize expectations while providing a multitude of opportunities for those families who want them. I encourage you to continue to reach out and share your experiences with them and me so we can continue to develop plans that work for each family.
We are going to try and create a virtual Dolphin Salute this week! I hope you will join us and I will send out a link as soon as we have figured out how best to orchestrate it. In the meantime, stay safe and stay well!
