Will students still receive grades? During March 16-April 10th there will be no grades or attendance taken. Enrichment materials provided for students are to help sharpen their skills and help them maintain what they have learned.
Will spring break change? At this time EBR has not made a decision if we will still get spring break. This decision should be made in coming weeks and when it is made I will give you an update.
How will students make up missed time?The required 63,720 instructional minute requirement per year shall be suspended which means the missed days will not have to be extended into the month of June. Therefore we do not anticipate any extension of the school year at this time. These events are unprecedented and the situation is constantly changing. I will keep you posted. Take Care, Mrs. Britten
Nurses will be at our school to give back medications. See images below. Buchanan’s day is Thursday, March 19th.
