Friday, 3/27 Update from Mrs. Giddins

Hello Redhawk Family,

Last night you should have received a communication from the district on the next steps on how we intend to support our students in this unprecedented time. The communication went out both in a text and email. This remote learning model that was shared will begin April 1st for middle schools and take place largely online via Canvas. We do know and understand acutely the difficulty that some of our community may face when it comes to accessibility to the internet and a working Chromebook. Many of our teachers and staff have been reaching out to see what the needs are and we in the administration are working hard to come up with real workable solutions. A couple to note currently, is that any working smart device phone or computer that has a internet connection, including gaming systems can help your scholar reach the student start up page via our school website.

Next step you can take, is to make sure you follow-up with your child's teachers and their requests. Many are trying to gather as much information as necessary so we know who needs what and then we can plan otherwise for those without. The intention is not to teach new material at this time but supplemental material to strengthen student skills. You can help by encouraging your child to check daily for updates on line, checking their email, and making sure they do their best to adhere to timelines and due dates. Be sure to check our social media, the website, and emails for ongoing updates. We are in times where things are rapidly changing. Also please note that the free meals are still continuing at the building for those 18 and under in Union county 7 days a week. If you do call the office, someone will be checking the voicemail remotely every so often to address concerns but no one is manning the building daily while it is closed. If we go back to packets, we will send out another communication.

Be well and we do miss you all! Go Redhawks!
