Dear Parents, 
Good Afternoon! I am attaching my plans for the student work they will complete during this second week of the closure. I have detailed when I will be diligently checking my email each day in case there are questions. I do not expect the work to be completed and emailed back to me. The students can turn it all in when we return on April 1st. However, I would suggest not waiting until the last minute as I will be sending work for next week on Sunday, March 29 or Monday, March 30. If your child would like to turn in any of the work early, I am more than happy to look at it and provide feedback. Also please check the school website as the specials teachers will also be providing material for the students during this time. So please check their newsletters on the school website. Thank you for your support and understanding. Please stay safe and healthy! 
Sincerely, 
Mrs. Grant
