In the event of school closure, here are a few things you as parents can do to prepare yourself.

  1. Make sure that you have all links and passwords to online accounts that your child’s teacher uses.
  2. Make sure you have a device, preferably with a keyboard, to which your child can have access. 
  3. Have a printer and ink available for home use, if possible.
  4. A supply of books and games.
  5. Patience.

 

In the case of school closure, you will be receiving an email from your child’s teacher that will include:

  • How you will be communicated with by the teacher during this school closure.
  • How students will communicate with the teacher during closure.
  • The times you or your child can reach out to the teacher.
  • Resources your child will be using.

Possible Online Resources

We have several online programs that various grades are using this year.  All of these resources are available at school and AT HOME.   *Here is some important info, however please know that classrooms teachers will be sending more specific information in the event of a closure.

For K-1st: Students have passwords for Raz Kids (Kids A to Z) and Lexia/Core 5.  Various learning apps are available on the iPAD and recommendations will be sent.

For 2nd grade. – Students will be using Raz Kids, Freckle, Lexia, Extra Math, and more. Your teachers will contact you for more info.

 

Each student in grades 3- 5 has a Google I.D. and password.  It follows this pattern:  2 digit graduation year. For example..4th graders is: 28lastnamefirstinitial@mbusdapps.org.  The students have been given their individual I.D’s and passwords by their classroom teacher. If your child does not know his/her password, email your teacher.
