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

Department is available.

and scroll down to Technical Assistance.

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.

April 1-April 3
We are planning to provide time for students to enter the building to gather materials and belongings.
Building principals will be communicating procedures for pick-up. Please know that these plans are fluid and
may change at any time. Your flexibility is helpful.

As we continue to communicate with you, we ask that you monitor email regularly, check our website and
follow us on Twitter @esm_csd. We anticipate the nature of our online learning to evolve throughout this
experience.  As always, your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated. 

Please know that the faculty, staff and administration stand ready to support you and your children during this
unprecedented time. Thank you for your continued support.
