COVID-19: Five Helpful Resources For Families
As some communities in the United States open K-12 schools, CDC offers the following considerations for ways in which schools can help protect students, teachers, administrators, and staff and slow the spread of COVID-19. Schools can determine, in collaboration with state and local health officials to the extent possible, whether and how to implement these considerations while adjusting to meet the unique needs and circumstances of the local community. Implementation should be guided by what is feasible, practical, acceptable, and tailored to the needs of each community. School-based health facilities may refer to CDC’s Guidance for U.S. Healthcare Facilities and may find it helpful to reference the Ten Ways Healthcare Systems Can Operate Effectively During the COVID-19 Pandemic. These considerations are meant to supplement—not replace—any state, local, territorial, or tribal health and safety laws, rules, and regulations with which schools must comply.

In an effort to assist parents in reducing the "summer loss of learning", we have created Summer Packets for students in grade levels Pre-K-8. Each Summer Learning Fun Packet consists of math, reading, language, and writing activities. The goal of the packets is to have students work for about 15-20 minutes on skill based activities (IN ELA & MATH) to continue learning for the upcoming school year. Our commitment to learning is to provide continuous educational enhancements through:
Activities designed to be a review of material from the past school year and have been pulled from our current reading and math series so they should be familiar to you and your child.
Summer Learning Fun Packets will help reduce the "summer loss of learning", but also creating fun and creativity.
Students that complete their packets, and return them to school in August, will be allowed to receive two 100 starting off the school year in both ELA & Math, along with an incentive! (Pre-K an incentive)
