Changing To Distance Learning

Hi Prairie Mountain Families,

There is a very real potential that our students, like those in many other states, may not return to school this academic year. According to Colt Gill, Director of the Oregon Department of Education, we are in the midst of a “historic transformation of our education system.”

ODE is asking all districts to shift to Distance Learning, potentially through the rest of the school year, rather than providing weekly supplemental education for students.

This is a huge shift for most school districts, including Bethel. In the next two weeks, we will:

Connect with each family to determine their access to the internet, digital devices and the most practical way for families and students to receive learning materials

Assess our district’s technological capacity to provide Distance Learning online

– Develop lessons that can be shared online and on paper that meet the needs of all students at all levels

– Accelerate the training for our teachers to provide students lessons in different formats

– Communicate regularly with parents/guardians, who will play an important role in the effectiveness of Distance Learning

Specific information about high school students Continue reading

Hello Prairie Mountain Families / hola familias de Prairie Mountain School

We miss you!! We hope you are doing well. 

Starting today, every Prairie Mountain family will receive a call from their child’s teacher to check in.

Please note, because our staff is working from home and using their personal phones, they may be calling from blocked caller ID numbers. Please watch for this call as this helps us set up our framework for delivering supplemental education and learning supports for your child. 

¡¡Te extrañamos!! Esperamos que estés bien. 

A partir de hoy, cada familia de Prairie Mountain recibirá una llamada del maestro de su hijo para preguntar cómo está.

Tenga en cuenta que, dado que nuestro personal trabaja desde su casa y usa sus teléfonos personales, es posible que estén llamando desde números de identificación de llamadas bloqueados. Esté atento a esta llamada ya que esto nos ayuda a establecer nuestro marco para brindar educación complementaria y apoyos de aprendizaje para su hijo.

Student Enrichment Resources

Here is some good news! First of all, we sincerely hope you are all healthy. Let’s continue to watch out for each other.

This week was scheduled to be Spring Break before our school calendar was interrupted. We are still attempting to get a clearer picture of what to expect for the next several months.

In the meantime, our Bethel staff have been working to plan materials and activities for students in all grade levels. We intend to offer continued supplemental enrichment for your child while schools are closed.

Supplemental Materials: Materials will be available to you on April 6th in two formats: online and hard-copy paper packets. These will be made available each week throughout the closure. We are working hard to ensure that all supplemental materials are accessible to all of our students. 

Enrichment: In the meantime, we have vetted and collected resources to support the enrichment of your student. Click here to access these enrichment resources. 

Check-In: Your child’s teachers will be contacting you after Spring Break to share more information about the supplemental materials, and simply because they miss their students! 

High School Students: All families have questions about what is happening with high school students. The Oregon Department of Education is currently working on a plan to address the unique needs of high school students during this closure. We know that high school students and their families are concerned about credits, as well as various tests such as SAT, IB and AP. We will communicate details once guidance from ODE is provided.

These are unprecedented times which result in many questions. We will share more information with you as soon as we get it. In the meantime, take good care of yourself and those around you.

 

Hola Familias, esperamos que este mensaje le encuentre bien. Extrañamos la presencia de sus hijos en la escuela y esperamos con ansias cuando volveremos a estar juntos.

Esta semana estaba programada para las vacaciones de primavera, cuando teníamos un calendario escolar oficial. Todavía estamos intentando tener una idea más clara de qué esperar para los próximos meses.

Mientras tanto, nuestro personal de Bethel ha estado trabajando para planificar materiales Continue reading
