Social distancing can be fun! I wandered down my street tonight to find a sign that said “Bear Hunt”. A few houses down, the neighbors placed 16 stuff bears scattered everywhere! The local Facebook page provides the information families need to find the bears throughout the community. Here’s a quick news story in TIME Magazine explaining this trend and how it works. https://time.com/5809613/bear-hunts-coronavirus/
Today, we cancelled elementary parent conferences that were scheduled for April 1. These will not be rescheduled because of the closure extending to May 4, 2020.
Yesterday, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education posted guidance for school districts as to approaches to teaching and learning during the extended closure. We are reviewing the document, our own local needs and goals, and will share further information next week. It is attached here for your information.
I held a Virtual Coffee this afternoon that was again very well attended. It will be posted to the web page this weekend.
Please enjoy the beautiful weather!
