Hello McKenzie Families,
We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
We are excited to share that we set up two sites so students can succeed in their Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) courses. These sites are set up to allow students to safely distance learn while accessing our services.
If you missed the school's email, please follow the link https://forms.gle/4SCSRiMiMFp1SXSM8 to let us know if you'd like to take advantage of these sites. Some of you told us this survey went to your spam folders, so hopefully, this works better.
Attending these sites is not mandatory, and if you have a good set up at home for distance learning feel free to continue to have school from home. These sites are set up to help support displaced students or students struggling with being able to connect to the internet otherwise.
We want there to be a place where students can safely access services and their online learning. Our hope in setting up these sites is that students will soon be able to transition to accessing course work four days a week instead of the current two days a week. We understand that this shift will take some adjustments to your family's schedules and, as such, we will be flexible and make accommodations to support student attendance during this time.
Both sites are staffed by MRCS personnel. Staffing will vary depending on the number of students and include an administrator, health screener, school secretary, learning specialist, and educational assistants. Teachers will not be onsite, as we have several staff and students who are still displaced.
Support services will be provided between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. at both sites. This is not a "drop-in" service, so we will need to prepare to maintain stable student cohort groups.
Please fill out this survey to let us know if you'd like to take advantage of this support.
We had a great first day at both locations!
