To say we miss your children is an understatement! Due to continued health concerns in our state and nation our schools must remain close, so our Distance Learning Plans will begin next week. Thank you for your patience as we go through this "unchartered territory" together. There is no map to guide us and no precedent for this. We will likely take a wrong turn or two along the way, but together, we can right the course and together we will persevere.
I hope to provide you with some concrete information in this message. Our goal in this is to remind our community's children that continuous learning truly matters as well as to keep the "summer slide" from having a negative impact on students in August.
We will have our BRAINFOOD Grab and Go beginning on Monday from 11 AM-1 PM at Watonga Elementary for PK, 2nd Grade, & 4th Grade ONLY. On Tuesday BRAINFOOD Grab and Go from 11 AM-1 PM at Watonga Elementary will be for Kindergarten and 5th Grade only. On Wednesday BRAINFOOD Grab and Go from 11 AM-1 PM at Watonga Elementary will be for 1st grade and 3rd Grade only. This will be done in pick up line format, and parents and students are asked to remain in your vehicle at all times. Teachers or aids will deliver your child's packet to your car. You can come before or after you go to get your child's school lunch from the MIddle School.
If you miss the designated day for your child's grade level, we will have extra packets at the Grab and Go Lunch Program at the Middle School on Thursday. You can also call the elementary school and leave a message to make alternative arrangements if you miss the designated day.
Distance Learning Plans and Guides are posted on our District Website, www.watongapublicschools.com/, which is accessible through a smartphone or any other digital device that has access to the internet.
I know you will have more questions, and I will be in further contact with you.
