Distance Learning- 2nd Quarter

2nd Quarter Family Letter
Posted on 10/14/2020

Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Dear Barkstall Families, 

As you may know, in order to accommodate both distance and in-person learners, Unit 4 is moving to a hybrid model for elementary schools starting Monday, October 26.  If you chose the option to continue with Distance Learning for 2nd Quarter, please read the information below.  

*Please note that once you choose Distance Learning for 2nd Quarter, you cannot request in-person learning once 2nd Quarter begins.

Barkstall Distance Learning Schedule:  

  • Students will join their live instruction from 8:55 a.m. to 11:25 a.m. each day. 

  • Students will utilize the rest of the afternoon to complete their independent learning activities.

The time has changed for distance learning but the procedures and teachers are the same. Students will access Zoom through Google Classroom as they did during the first quarter. 

We will continue to have additional learning materials for pick-up to help at home. Our next student packet pick-up will be on Friday, November 6th from 8:00 - 4:00 p.m.

We also remind families that the structured independent learning activities are crucial for your student’s success. Historically, we have limited “homework” for elementary students. However, the independent learning activities are required by the state and necessary for students to progress with the limited instruction we are able to provide during the pandemic. 

One final note, please read emails from the Barkstall Main Office and your student’s teacher for information about your student’s progress and opportunities at school.

Timeline:

October 21 - Transition Day (No School for Students)

October 22-23 - Parent-Teacher Conferences (No School for Students)

October 26 - ALL Students attend virtually from 8:55 a.m. - 11:25 a.m.

 

Sincerely,

Jessica Bradford

Barsktall Principal
