Dear Roosevelt Families,
As we head into the Spring break portion of our school closure, I wanted to say thank you all for navigating this new landscape in partnership with our staff at Roosevelt. We had a staff conference call today, and I was impressed once again with the level of care and concern everyone expressed for your children. We are working on an appropriate schedule for virtual class time and office hours, and will have that out to you as soon as possible. Attendance policies, key information regarding special education services and other important details of distance learning will be part of a district message that will be sent home in the near future.
My top priority moving forward is providing devices and Internet access to students who do not currently have access. Please fill out this survey if you do not have access to either a computer or the Internet. If you are unable to fill this out online, please leave a message on my voicemail at 619-362-3851, with your name, your student’s name, whether you need a device, the Internet, or both, and the best way to contact you and I will send more information as soon as I can. I will forward this list to our district technology team. The tentative plan is to distribute laptops at high schools after break ends. This is part of the reason we are starting with a three week period of distance learning where assignments and work done will still be considered enrichment and will not be graded.
As a reminder, for updated information, continue to check https://sites.google.com/sandi.net/covid19/home. Food pick up locations are listed there and by calling 211.
Important Dates to Remember:
- Monday, March 30-Friday, April 3: Spring Break
- Monday, April 6 – Friday, April 24: Distance Learning begins, all work will remain enrichment
- Monday, April 27: Distance Learning will officially become required for all students
Have a great weekend and a great Spring break. Please set aside meaningful time for your family. We are all doing our best to navigate the stress this pandemic has brought. I am hopeful that we as a community will come out of this stronger and more resilient. Be safe everyone.
Good night Roughriders and always remember your Roosevelt PRIDE – Personal Responsibility in Daily Excellence!
