Instruction to resume at schools March 30
March 25, 2020
The Three Forks School District announced last Friday that instruction will resume March 30.
Governor Steve Bullock announced Tuesday the closure of schools will remain until April 10.
District buildings will remain closed to the public, but according to Superintendent Jeff Elliott employees will be back on site this week and the administration is finalizing instruction models.
He said this week teachers are planning their curriculum as well as devising which delivery method will be utilized.
K-5 student work will primarily be through packets with some online options, and 6-12 will be a mix of both.
Elliott wants parents and students to check their website and emails to make sure they are up to date on specific teacher and class information. The school will only be open for picking up materials and those visiting are asked to limit the number of people during a pickup.
"We will ask that you limit the number of people into the school during pickup. We will have a schedule for each grade to be able to get their work," he said.
The district started providing grab and go lunches Monday as well as delivery to the Clarkston area.
"We will be learning as we go. What works and what doesn't. Remember this is all new for all of us. We have a dedicated staff that is willing to do whatever it takes to ensure we are providing learning to all of our kids. Please let us know about any hiccups or issues that come up. We will get through this and get back on track for the remainder of the year. Stay positive and have faith," Elliott said.
