Schools Implement Extended Learning Plans

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, extended school closures have resulted in alternate teaching methods. Schools are using a combination of sources to instruct and connect with students. 

Enrichment packets developed by teaching staff are used for Pre-K and elementary students in tandem with online resources.

“Instead of the traditional classroom setting, now learning is taking place in students’ homes, at kitchen tables, guided by the collaboration between teachers and parents,” East Elementary Principal Sandy Pohl explained. “Although many changes have occurred with this extended school closure, the foundation of teachers’ priorities remain the same. Our mindset is always focused on how we as teachers can best reach and support each student and family along their learning journey.”
