PNES Parent Update 11/20/20,

I heard from some parents that a summary of our learning situation might be useful.

On 11/19 the Franklin County Board of health advised that schools in Franklin county should go to remote learning from about Thanksgiving through their Winter breaks. In response to that advice, our district’s last in-person days are Green 11/20/20 or Blue 11/23/20. Remote learning begins on Monday 11/30/20 continuing through Winter break into January, with a potential first day back around 1/4/20. SWCSD will update parents in late December about what to expect in January.

Remote learning is not on the Blue or Green schedule, there will be live meets or online assignments almost every day, more like how our Wednesday online time felt. Our teachers are fully prepared to switch to remote learning and back to in-person when the time comes. It is crucial that your child stay on a regular sleep and wake routine that puts them on their computers in time for live meets each day. Participation then extends to doing iReady Math and iReady Reading, completing all assignments, and turning in work.

If you need help we urge you to use your teacher’s email or ClassTag as the primary points of contact, or call 614-801-8450 to leave a message for the office.
