Remote Learning

 

During the 2020-2021 academic year, we offered our families that could not attend class in-person a monthly packet of activities combined with online instruction on a private platform. If we are still under COVID restrictions for the 2021-2022 school year, we will continue to offer this option. It includes daily instructional videos, a daily story, online projects (in addition to the monthly packet of projects), music, and other activities.
