New Elementary Learning Packets

Instructional packets for preschool and elementary students have been created for the next ten instructional days, April 27 through May 8. The packets are available online, at school sites by Monday, and at school meals-to-go sites. The at-home learning site also includes English Learner language support, gifted enrichment activities including Japanese lessons, STEM activities, and other learning resources.

Middle and high school teachers will continue to provide online learning for students using a variety of tools. Middle and high school students in need of a Chromebook or Wi-Fi hotspot are asked to notify their principal or teacher. A limited number of printed packets will be available for pick up at all school meal sites for middle and high school students without access to a computer or other device at home.

Take-Home Dinners Added

Take-home dinner meals are included in meals-to-go service on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at all meals-to-go sites, thanks to a new partnership with World Central Kitchen. Meals-to-go are served each weekday from 11:30 to 12:30 at locations across the city.

School Office Hours

Reminder, all schools are hosting office hours each Wednesday from 8 to 4. Families will be able to pick up medications, talk with school office staff by phone, and register and withdraw their children by appointment only. To request an appointment, click on the "contact us" link at the top of the school's webpage or call the school.
