April Break Letter
Letter from Principal Velazquez
April 8, 2020
Good evening Eagle community,
It is our hope that this correspondence finds you and your families safe, healthy, and in positive spirits. As you are aware, Eagle’s Remote Learning classes are in session during the days originally scheduled for Spring Recess (from April 9th through April 17th). Although we do not have any “days off,” the next seven school days present us with time to explore enrichment activities across all courses. Since these are official school days, your sons will have their attendance recorded. Your sons must be in attendance for each day of classes. Here is some key information about the next seven days of school:
- As scholars do every day, they must submit their Google Classroom Daily Attendance forms at the beginning of each school day to have their attendance recorded.
- During this time, scholars will explore a different theme each day in lieu of their normal periods. Educators will be available to support students throughout the school day. This is also an opportunity for scholars to turn in any missing work and communicate with their teachers regarding any questions from our first three weeks of remote learning. The themes of the activities cover a wide array of topics.
For Thursday and Friday of this week, we are preparing activities related to the following themes and resources:
- Thursday, April 9: College and Career Readiness: Looking Forward to My Future
- Friday, April 10: Humanities, History, and The Arts
- Grades 6 to 12: Folder of Arts Activities
- Monday, April 13 to Friday, April 17:
- Topics include: Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and World Cultures with more information posted by the end of the day on Friday, April 10th.
Looking beyond next week, it is important to note that Governor Cuomo has extended NY on Pause, and remote learning will continue beyond April 20th. At this time, schools are tentatively scheduled to reopen on April 29, though all families should be prepared for school closures to extend beyond April 29 in case the governor decides to extend the Pause.
Thank you for your patience with this challenging transitioning to remote learning, and we wish our school community continued health and wellness.
