I trust things are going well in your household. What challenging times we are living in but keep hoping for the best as we continue get through this together.
Our KPS Board of Trustees met last night and unanimously approved the recommendation to continue online remote learning for the balance of this school year. The last day of the school year is Tuesday, June 9, although, as we typically have done, we will be ending new instruction for HS Seniors on May 22 and June 2 for the rest of our students. Be watching for upcoming communication from your child’s principal and teacher(s) on how these last few days of the school year will be used to get assignments and work turned in, return textbooks and other school owned items, and provide additional support that may be needed.
If you currently have questions or concerns on your students’ progress, please take the time to contact your child’s teacher(s) via email or phone numbers that may have been provided. As I mentioned in an earlier email many teachers are using Google Classroom and Google Hangout Meet to livestream with their students and provide online interaction on a regular basis. Logging into PowerSchool is also a great way to check on progress and communicate with staff. You can also go to this section of our website https://www.sd5.k12.mt.us/staff and search for any staff members contact information. Our website continues to provide current information on a variety of topics.
I again want to thank our teachers and you for the extra work and commitment in supporting our students as we continue online remote learning. As always, please let me know if I can assist you with anything else.
Take care, Mark
