Frontier School To Remain Closed
Frontier School held a special board meeting April 28 to consider extending distance learning through the end of the school year or adhering to Governor Steve Bullock’s phased reopening plan by allowing kids back in class.
At the meeting, the board voted to continue distance learning for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Weekly classroom packets will continue for the K-4 grades and Google classroom assignments will continue for grades 5-8.
Notice for K-4 students: “Parents are required to drop off/pick school work for their student. The school foyer will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays for drop off/ pick up of classwork. To minimize the number of individuals in the building at one time there will be a sign outside the building indicating whether the foyer is or is not occupied. There will be only one person allowed to enter the building at a time (please refrain from bringing children). We ask that as you enter the building, turn the sign around to indicate others to ‘wait.’ Upon exiting the building, turn the sign to indicate to others that they may enter.”
Notice for grades 5-8: “Middle school students are to join their scheduled classes via Google Classroom Monday-Friday on school days. The schedule is in the Google classroom tab on the school’s website. All online learning platforms are to be considered like a classroom setting and the same code of conduct and expectations are required. Please discuss the importance of engaging in the virtual education provided. The teachers will be taking attendance, so please follow each teacher’s attendance requirements. Assignments are required and grades are being earned during this time.”
