First off I want to start by saying how much we miss our little Mustangs. Students make this brick and mortar school a magical place to be and we look forward to the day when we celebrate joining together again in person. In the meantime, we will make the most of it and connect with our students in other ways!
Our teachers are working extremely hard to prepare for Distance Learning. Creswell teachers really know what it means to put kids first!
I know there is much uncertainty in what Distance Learning will look like for you and your family. We understand the various barriers that folks are experiencing and want you to know it is our desire to support our students as best as we can during this strange time in education. These next few weeks we will be adjusting to a whole new way of doing business. Our first priority is to connect and maintain relationships with our students. To do that we are working to get everyone set up with the tools needed for Distance Learning.
Students can stay connected with learning and their teacher online through Google Classroom (Seesaw for kindergarten) OR distance learning packets. We realize that for many of our families connecting over the Internet is not an option. For those families we will provide packets. Packets can be picked up each Friday from 10:00am-2:00pm through the parent pick-up line (near the south pod). We are prepared to begin packet distribution April 10th for those not able to connect digitally.
If you need a computer to connect your child to distance learning online it is not too late to get a computer. Friday April 10th from 1:30-3:30 Creslane families can come through the “bus lane” (closest to the cafeteria) to checkout a device.
*We are now able to distribute an additional device to families who have 3 or more elementary-aged children. Parents you may come get a second device Friday, April 10th from 1:30-3:30.
Next week we will have iPads ready for our kindergarten students. They are currently being reformatted to fit their academic needs. More information to come, thank you for your patience.
Lastly, I want to thank the Creslane families for your support and grace while we get ourselves set up for distance learning. We know this closure has had a huge impact on our community. We are looking forward to better days ahead where we see students filling our rooms and hear the sounds of our students learning and growing through our halls.
