Emergency Learning Plan Letter to Families

March 10th, 2023

Dear Tri-Valley Families,

As you may be aware, we have exhausted our allotted snow days for the 22-23 school year and will be switching to an Emergency Learning Plan (ELP) should we need to close school at any time during the remainder of this school year.

Partnering with our stakeholders, we have created a plan to allow for remote learning to occur during an emergency day while taking into account many of the factors we learned through COVID remote learning. We also understand that there may be extenuating factors that will prohibit students from completing their learning on the exact closure day such as, but not limited to: severe weather challenges, loss of power and/or internet. We have built in a grace period for these assignments to be completed as this is not meant to be punitive in nature if students are not able to engage and/or complete their school work on an emergency day.

Assignments would need to be completed within 5 days of the emergency closure day. Students that complete their remote assignments will be given attendance credit for that emergency closure day.

On Monday, March 13th, elementary students and any student that receives paper copies of homework will be receiving their envelopes to be kept at home. We are asking that they are stored in a safe place and only used for emergency days. Secondary school students will be utilizing their chrome books and completing their assignments in their google classrooms.

Moving forward, we will be creating a Remote Learning Plan as a mandated addition to our District Safety Plan for the 23-24 school year.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at erinlong@trivalleycsd.org.

Thank you for your continued partnership,

Erin Long
Superintendent of Schools
