When there is a school closure in excess of the number of allowable days permitted by Ohio Law, teachers will make the designated lessons/assignments available by sending an email.
At this time we have been out of school seven days. With the upcoming inclement weather and possible calamity days we wanted to take a moment to make you aware of our procedures for “Blizzard Bags" or what we have called "Calamity Day Assignments". The intention behind these Calamity Day Assignments is to provide instructional support in our absence from school due to inclement weather. Although we understand that being present at school would provide our students with the optimal instruction, we have developed a collection of activities that are intended to reinforce the skills and concepts that our students are learning and practicing regularly at school. This, in addition to possible activities from Therapists if your child receives related services, will help to ensure that your child is still partaking in meaningful instruction in our absence from school.
Calamity Day Assignments will be emailed by NOON on the calamity day and students will have two weeks to complete the assignments and return them to school. In fact, our first two assignments are already posted on the Sutter Park website under "Quick Links" if you are interested in accessing it early. Since preschool attendance is not mandatory, completion of these calamity day assignments is not mandatory. We do hope you find them beneficial as we continue working on those concepts in our curriculum. If students do not have internet access or are unable to print the assignments, there are additional options available. Computers are available for student use at the public library as well as the Worthington Education Center (times will be determined and posted on the district website, as needed). If a student is unable to obtain the assignments in any other manner, the school computer lab and paper copies will be available upon returning to school.
In addition, as a result of the two days that we have already missed over our calamity day limit of five, we WILL have school on Friday, April 18 and Friday, May 30. These two days are currently on the school calendar as no-school days. Please make a note and plan accordingly for your child’s attendance.
Thank you for your support and understanding of this new procedure. If you have any questions please let me know.Renee Linn
We currently have a short waiting list for our AM session (for children born after May 1, 2009) and do place children throughout the school year. If you are interested, please call to place your child on our waiting list.
