March 31, 2020 Distance Learning for our Special Education Students
I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and well.
The Special Education Department has been working diligently to explore ways to meet the needs of our students through our distance learning platforms and by reaching out to the student's families. The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of what is currently taking place and layout expectations moving forward. The district’s website will continue to be the best method of communication with the community. All of our staff will be monitoring their email, and families are encouraged to reach out to the special education department with any questions. Staff email addresses are available in Schooltool.
Before schools closed, teachers and related service providers created work packets that are available online or as a hard copy. These packets will cover the two weeks spanning from 3/30/2020 -4/10/2020. During this time, our staff will be setting up their digital learning platforms as a means to deliver quality online instruction. Online distance learning will begin on 4/13/2020.
State and Federal guidelines have been issued to school districts explicitly outlining the district’s responsibility regarding providing a Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE) during an extended school closure due to the COVID-19 virus. The link to the question and answer document from the U.S. Department of Education is listed below. I wish you all health and safety as we work together through this new challenge.

Continuous Learning Update - 3/25/2020
Dear ESM Community Members,
We know this letter finds you navigating the many challenges that are now part of our lives. As previously shared, students will be returning to school on April 1, 2020. Please know the return-to–school date is subject to change based on the evolving COVID-19 outbreak and decisions made by our elected officials.
As a district, we are taking the necessary steps to develop continuous learning experiences for students. Below is an overview of our plan.
March 16 – March 20, 2020
On Monday and Tuesday, teachers worked diligently to create lessons and gather materials to provide students with opportunities for learning. For our K-6 students, the activities focused on review and reinforcement of concepts presented earlier in the year. Teachers in the JSHS developed lessons that blended both review and introduced new concepts to ensure pacing for Regents and AP exams. The district used Emergency Closing Days Wednesday thru Friday.
March 23 – March 27, 2020
As previously notified, the district modified the calendar and we are on Spring Break.
March 30 – April 10, 2020 Students will begin Continuous Learning at home.
Students K- 6

During this time period, (3/30 - 4/10), our teachers and administrators will be developing our Continuous Learning Plan; preparing for the potential of an extended school closure. This will include a remote learning platform for all of our students. Working together with our teachers, the goal is to ensure a positive learning experience for our children. Please be patient! To do this well requires a coordinated effort to ensure support is available for teachers, students and parents.
