Supplemental Learning Options

Dear Elementary Students and Families,

We hope this message finds you healthy and making the best of these uncertain times. While it is true, our world has changed dramatically in the last couple of weeks, what has not changed, is our commitment to you, our community of students and families.

To this end, we are giving you an update while also sharing with you a list of activities and resources you may choose to use while we await guidance from the state about our next steps.

Students in Grades K-5. The state is outlining how we will support our students in grades K-5. This school closure will have a lasting impact on their educational achievement. The decisions and resulting plans that will be implemented are being done with great care, including input from state educators.

Students in Grades 6-8. The state is outlining how we will support our students in grades 6-8. This school closure will have a lasting impact on their educational achievement. The decisions and resulting plans that will be implemented are being done with great care, including input from state educators.

Students in Grades 9, 10 and 11. The state is also outlining how we will support our students in grades 9, 10 and 11. This school closure will have a lasting impact on their educational achievement and resulting ability to meet the current graduation requirements. The decisions and resulting plans that will be implemented are being done with great care, including input from state educators and in consultation with higher education.

Seniors and Graduation. At this point, the state is creating a plan for how we will support our seniors and their graduation. They are aware of how school closure impacts state and district graduation requirements and we are working in collaboration to make changes that will support their graduation.

As you review the resource list on the SPS Homeroom page, please know that we acknowledge these resources are not meant to replace classroom instruction and experience. As we all grapple with this difficult new period, we recognize and understand the importance of staying relaxed, engaged, and entertained. That being said, encouraging our students to continue to challenge themselves intellectually, is also important. The resources are meant as a guide for you to use, if you choose. There will be no grading or credit provided for utilizing these resources.

When we receive the state guidelines for how we will support our elementary school students, we will share that information with you. Our goal is to stay connected in a meaningful way while keeping you informed.

Please continue to watch for information and updates via email and the SPS District Website. If you have specific questions, you can email askSPS@springfield.k12.or.us.

 

Remember to stay positive and maintain healthy connections with others; we are separate, but not alone!

 

In appreciation,

 

Springfield Public Schools
