Continuous Distance Learning Resources & Parent/Student Guide Released
A Letter from Dr. April Grace, April 2, 2020
Dear Shawnee Public School Parent/Guardian:
Our community, state, and nation are facing unprecedented challenges due to COVID-19. Life has changed for everyone, and we are all working together to deal with these changes. Disruption and change are hard for everyone but can be especially difficult for children. It is our goal to provide essential learning opportunities as well as structure and routine for your children during this time. We know there will be challenges to overcome, but we are looking forward to working alongside you in overcoming these challenges and to providing your child/children a loving and caring continuous learning experience. You will find our Continuous Distance Learning Resources at the following link on the Shawnee Public Schools Website: tinyurl.com/shawneelearning. If you do not have access to the internet, Continuous Distance Learning Resources will be delivered on Thursdays by buses with the meal deliveries or can be picked up at school sites by appointment only.
Some of the basic expectations for you are the following: follow and comply with the district continuous learning plan to successfully complete the school year, review the time expectations for your student, access the resources available, set up a schedule for your student, communicate with teachers when needed, and read the complete parent guide listed below.
The complete Shawnee Parent/Student Guide to Distance Learning was developed to help answer questions and provide important information to you at tinyurl.com/shawneeparentguide. It is very important to us that every child receives the same learning opportunities and that every family has accurate information to be a solid partner with us during this time. Remember, this is new for all of us, and we appreciate our partnership with you.
April Grace, EdD.
