A Letter to Parents March 24, 2020
You have likely seen a statement from State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister regarding a State School Board meeting on March 25. She is recommending that beginning April 6, schools will be asked to complete the school year with a distance learning plan. This decision will mean school buildings must continue to stay closed, with no extracurricular activities or in-person instruction, for the remainder of the school year. Our staff is already working hard to make sure we provide our students continued learning opportunities and support at this challenging time.
On Monday we fed families with our meal packets that we had on hand. We were able to deliver almost 16,000 meal packets for families. We will continue to provide what we can in the way of meals or meal packets. We may make a few minor changes to our meal delivery plan to make sure we are giving our students what they need, and we will notify you of any changes we may make to this plan. We will still have two meal delivery times this Friday, morning and afternoon. Our meal plans are available at tinyurl.com/shawneemeals, and if we make any changes, we will notify you through email, phone calls, our website, our app, Facebook and Twitter.
I know this is a lot to take in and think about it. Our world is not the same. Life and traditions as we know them are not the same. Undoubtedly, we all feel robbed in one way or another. I know our teachers, support staff, and administrators are sad right now and are looking for ways to still connect to our students and their families. The many things we took for granted all seem so precious now.
As always, take care of yourselves and your family. Please reach out to us if you need us. Remember, we are here for Every Wolf, Every Day.
