Hello Shadow Butte Husky Families,
I hope everyone has had a relaxing Spring Break and are ready for some updates on how we are going to proceed in the coming weeks while school buildings are closed. Shadow Butte Elementary School will have normal office hours for phone calls and emails from 8 am to 4 pm Monday-Friday. The office will have extended hours on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday until 8 pm to meet the needs of the parents that work over the hill and need to pick up documents.
Our current plan is for teachers to be available to families with office hours every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9am - 12pm and 7pm - 8pm. They will be reaching out to you with information on how to best contact them. We know that this situation has created many questions and uncertainty, but please know our staff is working diligently to prepare for our shift to online learning beginning April 13th using many of the same lessons, software, and platforms that they are currently using in their classrooms. Teachers are learning new software to be able to share videos and meet with classes online.
Until then please use the materials and resources that teachers shared with families prior to Spring Break. If you did not receive materials before Spring Break please contact you child's teacher. Hard copies of the packets are available for pick up on a table at the office.
When we move to distance learning on April 13th, the expectation is that students will have 2-4 hours of school work a day and that both online and offline activities will be offered. Teachers will be recording lessons for students to watch and then be able to discuss those with parents and students during their office hours. We will also be working with our paraprofessionals to provide some contact time with students they have been working with as well.
If you currently do not have access to the internet and/or a device please know that we are currently working on solutions and you may be contacted regarding your needs. We are hoping to get students chromebooks out by the end of next week.
Communication is going to be essential as we move forward. Your teachers will be in contact in the coming days, and as we get more information from the District and State levels we will pass that information onto you.
Thanks for your patience and your support.
Todd Adams, Principal
