Parents and Guardians:

 

Recently, Wilkinson County  Schools made the decision to initiate a precautionary extended school closure. Wilkinson County School District believes that the health and safety of our students is our top priority. We also believe that maintaining educational opportunities at this time is paramount. 

 

As a District, we have developed the parameters below to ensure that our teachers are still providing quality instruction to your children. Over the time of closure (March 17th - April 10th), our teachers will be instructing students with a variety of technology based platforms. Students will have meaningful work to complete and will receive feedback from our teachers. In order to best serve our students, we need the help of our parents. During this time, we need you to continuously encourage your child to manage their learning experiences by doing the following:

 

  • Check Google Classroom platforms daily to receive instruction and practice materials. 

  • Utilize email and other electronic platforms (Remind 101, Google Classroom, etc.) to communicate with their teachers about questions, misconceptions and student instructional needs. 

  • Be timely in their efforts such that their instruction can remain as close to the regular school calendar as possible. 

  • The CDC recommended social distancing. Avoid large group gatherings and stay home as much as possible to avoid exposure. 

 

While the flexible learning plan has been shared with students, we wanted to be sure parents were also aware of their students’ responsibilities during the closure.  Thank you for your efforts to help our students continue to get quality instruction using our digital platforms!
