School Closing Update April 16, 2020


Dear W.A. Olmsted Parents/Guardians,

I hope this email finds everybody in a good place and schools routines are solidifying at home. It has come to my attention that some parents are confused about requirements for our students.  Some of the people are under the impression that if a student does not zoom with their teacher they were not in attendance for the day.  This is not the case. As long as a student participates in some sort of platform (iReady, SEESAW, Google Classroom, etc.) then they are considered in attendance for the day. 

As our teachers continue to provide on-line learning, it is essential that all students participate in the assignments given.  An excerpt from the letter I sent home earlier this month states:

As we move forward I need to express the importance of all students completing their work in a timely and comprehensive manner. The teachers are creating online lessons, activities, and assessments for each class. Likewise, the teachers will be interacting with the students and students will be asked to demonstrate their understanding of the various topics.  At this point it is essential all students stay current with their work and reach out if you are having any struggles or need additional assistance. Your teachers will have built-in supports to assist you.

I realize that this learning platform is a huge change for everyone, but this is what NYS mandate school currently at least through May 15th. This new learning platform is how each student will attend school and participate in state mandated school attendance. Please keep safe and know I sincerely appreciate all the support that you have provided to our students at home.
