Dear Students & Parents:
As we prepare to begin our fourth quarter classes on Tuesday, March 31st using the distance learning model, we must first acknowledge that all our lives have been turned upside down, inside out, and every which other way over the past two weeks. None of us could have anticipated beginning our fourth quarter in this manner one month ago, let alone seven months ago when we started the school year. But here we are; and we will adjust as necessary to best meet the needs of our students. Our top priority is the well-being of each student as we look out for their emotional, social, physical, and academic needs.
With this in mind, we will continue to set high expectations for our students, while understanding the need to be flexible during these unprecedented times. We realize distance learning will present some challenging scenarios for a number of our families, and we will adjust as necessary to help students experience success. Our teachers will strive to create a sense of community within their classroom, despite the challenge of interacting via technology.
You may click on the AHS Distance Learning Plan (DLP) which provides detailed information on how distance learning will be implemented at Annandale High School. This is a working document that will improve as we go. In an effort to provide detailed information, while also keeping this letter as brief as possible, I have created direct links to particular sections of the DLP, along with contact information should you have questions.
At this time we hope all technology needs have been met; however, if you should still need a chrome book or access to the internet, please contact Joy Turner at email@example.com. We will all get better at helping our students experience success while implementing this Distance Learning Plan. In the meantime, take care of yourselves and each other until we have the opportunity to gather again.
