Good afternoon Sister Lakes Families, The weather forecast for tonight, 2/15/21, is describing some possible challenging weather coming our way. Because of this, students will be bringing home their tech/Chromebooks and learning materials. If the weather is severe enough, we will announce, as early as possible, that tomorrow will be a distance learning day. If we have a distance learning day, we will follow the same schedules used earlier in the year. This idea is based on maximizing as much instructional time this year as possible. Thank you.

During this time we will follow the same daily schedule as used during the first five weeks of school for the distance learning plan. Students will need to take their Chromebooks and other needed materials home with them at the end of school day on Friday, December 18, 2020. Staff and students will work together through the Schoology learning platform and other support programs that have been used throughout this school year. Volviendo al aprendizaje a distancia 01/04/21-01/08/21 Regresaremos a la educación a distancia según la decisión de la junta escolar. Durante este tiempo, seguiremos el mismo horario diario que se utilizó durante las primeras cinco semanas de clases para el plan de aprendizaje a distancia. Los estudiantes deberán llevar sus Chromebooks y otros materiales necesarios a casa al final del día escolar el viernes 18 de diciembre de 2020. El personal y los estudiantes trabajarán juntos a través de la plataforma de aprendizaje de Schoology y otros programas de apoyo que se han utilizado en toda esta escuela. -Mr. Zietlow
