Update on School Closure
We are very excited to enter this new world of online and virtual learning together! The District has made it possible for us to loan Chromebooks to every student so they can access the classroom virtually and continue to build community, focus on inquiry, and engage with project based learning. This will allow students to explore their interests and learn with their classmates and teachers while staying safe at home!
As per the District’s Continuity of Education Plan we will shift from Enrichment and Review, which consists of informal activities to reinforce or extend students’ prior learning, to Planned Instruction the week of May 4th. Planned Instruction is formal teaching and learning similar to that which occurs in a classroom setting. Within this process, teachers use planned courses of instruction of new concepts/skills aligned to grade level standards. Teachers assess the learning of their students and make adjustments to instruction based upon student progress. In order to receive grade and credit, students must attend regularly and complete the course requirements. Below is the schedule we will be following from May 4th through the end of the year (downloadable .pdf version):
Please subscribe to The Chester Arthur Youtube Chanel, like The Chester A Arthur School Facebook Page, and visit The Chester Arthur School Closure Resource Site. All three platforms contain a plethora of resources that families can use to solve immediate problems associated with the school closure. If you know of other resources that could support our community please share them with us so we can pass them on.
During this confusing and challenging time, I believe the strength of our community is in our diversity and I thank you all for stepping up for each other.
Please continue to reach out -both with immediate needs and with ideas and actions that come to your heart and mind.
With much appreciation,
