Remote Learning Starts April 7th

Harrison Families,

Please look for communication from your student’s school for ongoing educational experiences. Your child’s teacher will be providing activities focused on essential math and Language Arts skills each week. These skills have been chosen for grade appropriateness and what students should know for success. If you have a need for additional learning activities, please contact your child’s teacher or school and we will try to accommodate that request.

For K-8 Students and Schools

Educational Activities will be provided by schools and teachers beginning on April 7. You may access them electronically through the internet, or in paper form at each school. Packets at each school will be available Tuesdays through Friday in clearly marked storage containers in the front of your schools.

The focus of educational practice at this time will be to review and master skills they have already learned. The more the family engages in these activities, the better! These activities are for your student’s enrichment. Grades can only improve; we will not penalize students for not completing assignments.

The electronic or paper packets will contain one activity per day of each Math and Language Arts. There is no need to return packets, though you may if you wish. Teachers will check in with students and families weekly via the communication method the school has chosen.

You may contact your teacher or school at any time through email or other chosen method of communication. Teachers and schools know the expectation is to respond to your communication within 24 hours.

Teachers will also hold regular virtual office hours. All K-8 Teachers will be available to respond to student and family questions about educational activities from 8-10 am and 1:30 – 3:30 pm each weekday.

CLDE and Special Education services will continue to be offered. All students and their families eligible for services will be contacted by April 3.

For High School Students

Our high schools; Sierra, Harrison, and Career Readiness Academy each have several priorities. These priorities are the same across the schools.

Each school and staff are committed to making sure seniors continue to get the credits they need to graduate – on time!
Each school and staff are committed to making sure all students pass all classes, with priority on classes required for graduation, so students remain on track for graduation.
Each school and staff are committed to making sure all students master basic skills required for success.
Each school and staff are ready to challenge any student who requests additional learning and growth.
Grades can only improve; we will not penalize students for not completing assignments.

High Schools will post teacher “office hours” when teachers are available to answer questions for each subject or class they are responsible for. See CANVAS and the school web page for additional information on times and contact methods.
