Dear Allen Elementary Families,
Our entire school team misses you greatly and hopes this finds you well.
During Quarter 4, due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, CVESD will embark upon a distance learning instructional model for all students until further notice. To view our District newsletter regarding distance learning & other related items, please CLICK HERE.
Allen Elementary’s goal is to keep student learning alive and well until health officials determine that it is safe to reopen. This week (April 6- 10), our teachers will be planning and preparing curriculum for distance learning instruction. Teachers will not, however, assign academic work this week. Distance learning for students will start, to the extent possible, on Monday, April 13.
This week, your child’s teacher will contact you by email or phone. It’s important that you reply in a timely manner, as we need to assess the distance learning resources available at your home and confirm that all students are able to communicate with their teachers.
We’ll strive to provide your child with a quality education in a nurturing, virtual classroom environment during this last quarter of the school year. Since distance learning is new for both teachers and students, I respectfully ask that you are patient with our instructional team. Rest assured, we’ll work hard to support you and your child through this new model of learning.
Lastly, CVESD will not be distributing any digital devices (such as laptops or iPads) at this time. However, our teachers will ensure that assignments will be flexible and equitable for all students.
As always, thank you for your partnership and support. I look forward to the day we’re back on campus together. Please let your children know we miss them: Our staff is so excited to connect with them this week.
Mr. John Greenwell, M.S.Ed.
