School Closure Updates

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope this update finds you and your family in good health.

Please note that beginning on April 8th, 2020, ‘Learning Continuity Plans’ for students will be made available to your child by their classroom teacher. These learning plans will involve some form of technology. Ex. e-mail, internet, computer, etc. For families with little or no technology available to them at home, Saltwire will be distributing ‘Learning Packages’ through the flyers. Please note that these ‘learning packages’ are meant to be a viable option for students to engage in their learning with little or no technology at home. Should you have opted out of flyer delivery services in the past, feel free to re-introduce flyer delivery to your home by calling 1-800-565-3339 or by filling out a request form found at Additional copies of the learning packages, as well as other ideas, resources and helpful links can also be found there.
