Distance Learning prompts changes to daily schedules, building access and assignment delivery

Distance Learning prompts changes to daily schedules, building access and assignment delivery

April 9, 2020

Dear Parents, Students and Staff: 

During this time of social distancing we want to ensure that each of our students continue to have access to high-quality curriculum and assignments.  The teachers, administration, and support staff continue to refine and improve delivery of instruction through a virtual learning environment. Our staff is continuing to define and answer questions regarding everything from internet access (hotspots) to daily schedules. 

With the extension of the emergency distance learning through May 29th, a modification to teacher hours and building access has changed. Meanwhile, please talk with your child about the importance of continuing his/her education during this time. 

Beginning Monday, April 13th teachers will be available for support:

  • Mondays through Thursdays, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm 
  • Tuesdays from 6:30 pm  to 7:30 pm.

School buildings will be open for limited access by appointment only: 

  • Mondays through Wednesdays from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
  • Thursdays from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm by appointment

Sweet and Ola will have different schedules due to the reduced student population.

District Hotspots: Each Building is being mapped and information will be provided as to the areas outside the buildings that students may use to link to our WiFi system. 

The Emmett School District website has a page dedicated to Distance Learning and will be our district primary source of information.  

Monday, April 13th, the links along the right side of the Distance Learning webpage should direct students and parents to all lessons and communications from teachers and administration.  Specific building and teacher information will be updated daily. Please contact your school during regular school hours if you have questions regarding teacher links or teacher communication. 

Thank you for your time and please reach out to your teachers and building administration if you have any other questions or if you need technical support.  Emmett School District is committed to creating a distance learning model that supports our students and our community. 

Sincerely,

Craig Woods, Emmett Superintendent
