West Vancouver is fortunate, said Kennedy, in that the school district already has systems in place for students and teachers to communicate and submit projects and marks with the help of technology.

Staff say they are focusing on keeping in touch with students and their families to guide them through this new experience through email, phone, and apps.

"This morning, I met with both my parents and students and together we navigated the new Continued Learning website", Beard said.

From a health perspective she said teachers regarded schools as playing an important role in providing a safe, regulated environment for children that was often better for them than the alternative of being at home or wandering the streets and shopping centres. "They are all possibilities for meeting their needs". Some are making digital copies, and others make physical menus and upload pictures to the class page.

"The kids have really enjoyed getting to see each other every day", Moon says.

Now in the middle of the second unexpected week out of school related to the coronavirus, parents seemed ready for added school work and said their children are ready for it, too. For others it is hard to access wifi, especially because Marcola is located in a rural area.

Vonda Ramp, head of child nutrition services, said schools and civic and nonprofit organizations have been stepping up to ensure that need is met for students who received free and reduced-price breakfasts and lunches at school.

And, it’s important to account for the time and effort spent by administrative staff handling these denied claims. They also have the potential to adversely affect patients’ opinions about the organization.

This will include digital options that many students are now using. Some are bundling multiple days of meals and using a variety of delivery methods at 1,600 sites across the state, including school bus stops, door-to-door delivery, grab-and-go sites and drive-thru sites.

At Clear Creek Elementary School on Fort Hood, Evelyn Romero also took advantage of the supplemental work, picking up a packet for her son in kindergarten.

"All of our employees will remain employed and continue to get a paycheck". This week we'll be working with teachers to further develop this "Learn From Home" platform. Many of our teachers are using Google Classroom, but there are others for whom additional training must occur.

"I'd like to thank everybody for enduring the unexpected conditions we are all facing [and] for having some flexibility and understanding as we move forward to provide a different type of learning for our students", Supt. The officials also say schools should start classes later so that students can avoid commuting during the rush hour.

We are setting reasonable time expectations for the essential learning so we do not overwhelm families and students. Even without classrooms, school is back in session this week or soon will be, districts said.

As for teaching, Scott Robinson, superintendent of schools, explained to teachers in a letter on Tuesday that plans for the "continuity of learning" are being developed. "I'm happy I'm working right now. Its going to be a learning process for everyone but I am confident not only our staff, but our community will get through it".
