April 3, 2020

Dear Lancer Families,

Today marks the end of our second week of remote learning and the closing of Quarter 3.  I hope your student has been able to adjust to a schedule that works well, as they continue to navigate an online curriculum and complete their assignments.  I’m particularly impressed with the level of consistent communication between students and teachers.  Both should feel confident in their ability to connect with each other and share the challenges they are facing, along with the triumphs they’ve experienced in a very different academic environment.  They will continue to work closely with each other to ensure they’ve had enough time to complete assignments and feel comfortable closing out 3rd quarter, and to begin 4th quarter units.  Again, please contact teachers if you feel there is anything that may prohibit that from happening.  We plan to issue 3rd Quarter report cards on Friday, April 17th

Teachers have prepared Quarter 4 lessons and assignments for the three remaining weeks leading up to April break.   They have been asked to focus on the essential elements of the units within their courses, and provide weekly expectations for students using formative assessment work and resources throughout the week leading up to a future summative assessment.  This framework may be beneficial for a lot of students trying to plan and structure their school week.  Teachers are also carefully planning work that represents a manageable amount of time, and is reflective of a typical class period and school day.  We have asked them to scale back the amount of work that takes students into the evening and weekend.  This should help ensure, to a greater degree, that everyone is finding a better work / life balance. Case managers and counselors are available to assist students, so please keep that in mind and use them as a resource throughout the school week. 

Next week we’ll be reporting the results of the surveys students and parents completed. We will also be reviewing adapted athletic and music schedules for May and June, along with creating contingencies for senior class events.  We will continue to provide updates regarding our plans to participate in and celebrate our end of the school year traditions.  We will also begin to look at finding creative ways to feature our amazing Lancers.  We miss seeing the incredible things they do each day, and hope we will see them back in school soon enough.  Continue to enjoy time with your family, rest, and stay healthy! Also, please continue to reach out if you need us for anything.

Sincerely,

Jason Parent

Proud Principal
