Governor Mike DeWine announced the extension of our current remote or distance learning for our children through May 1, 2020. With that announcement many of you might have questions about your distance learning and more specifically your role in the process.
Your school is still working. Your teacher and support staff are still available for you and your child. Teachers have lessons either on-line, in take home “Blizzard" type packets, or some combination. Although there are groups and organizations in abundance offering curriculum and other resources to support you, please know those are supplemental. Your child’s teacher should be providing your child’s curriculum to you.
Some of you may have limited or no access to the internet but your school is working diligently to provide you other options such as the paper pencil packets with telephone or text messaging assistance available.
During these difficult times it is possible that with the updated extension of remote learning schools must adhere to, even more stress has been added to you the parents! Your role is to help your district help your child's learning continue, rest assured it is not to be responsible for the lessons taught.
If you have questions about what your child should be doing please call or email your school’s administration. If you still are unable to connect please call the Montgomery County Educational Service Center (MCESC) at 225-4598. Also visit your districts website for information or the MCESC website at mcesc.org for our Montgomery County Parent Help Desk.
School may not be in the typical setting but school is still in session. Teachers are here for you. Your school is still at work. Let us know what you need.
Our Keowee Street site is is closed to visitors without an appointment. Please call 937-225-4598 to speak to a team member if you need assistance.
