Parents, Caretakers and Students,
Starting April 1, we will transition into a more structured Remote Learning model in an effort to mitigate the disruption to the school year. We have worked as a district to put together a framework and develop expectations, but Remote Learning may look different grade by grade and even class by class. If you have a student in Pre-K-5, your child’s homeroom teacher will be your main point of contact for daily instruction. If you have a middle school student, they will use Schoology to work with each of their core teachers, as well as their Special Area/Explore teachers.
Daily assignments and activities will come from your child's teacher(s) by 9 a.m. Only use the resources below if your teacher has directed you.
Please scroll lower on this page to view the Remote Learning Extension Activities!
Do to high volume of requests we have temporarily closed the sign up for Chromebook loaners for Student pickup on April 1. The second round for pickup will be April 8 and the request form will open again on April 2. Thank you for your flexibility and patience.
Parent or Students, if you have questions or problems please email WRC@Dist50.net

The resources in this section are Extension Activities for students to explore, discover and continue their school work while at home. Look for your school and select the appropriate grade level for your child. There are additional activities for social emotional learning, speech, gross motor, fine motor and sensory needs. Feel free to find resources that best meets your child's needs. They are intended to be done independently and will not be graded.
