Private Facebook Group for SVDPRS Families
If you are not already a member, please join our private Facebook group, SVDPRS Family (https://www.facebook.com/groups/svdprs/). The group has been a very successful way to get information out quickly as well as answer questions in the comments. But an even better reason to join is for the "family" atmosphere. We have been coming together to keep everyone's spirits raised through this tough time. With sharing of fun online resources for the kids and hosting "virtual" Spirit Days like pajama day, pet appreciation day and today where we are honoring first responders and medical professionals with our Super Hero Day. We hope you will join us too, but please remember to complete the required questions to join.
*Note: All pertinent academic related information will be posted on this website as well as the Facebook Group, so it is not mandatory to join the group.
School offices will be closed, effective immediately.
Drop-off and pickup of at-home learning materials has been discontinued at this time. We are going to have to find other ways to make this work, but gathering at the school on Tuesdays will not fall in line with proper social distancing guidelines.
Please wait and hear from your children's teacher this week for further direction on at-home learning assignments.
Classes will continue at-home learning on Monday 3/23 and at this time, likely through April.
There will be no at-home work on Friday 3/27. This was already a scheduled day off for students and teachers will use this day to reflect on how things have been going with at-home learning.
Miss Pirolli will be working from home and will have access to her email if there are any questions.
To all our SVDPRS Families:
We would first like to thank everyone for their patience as we all navigate through these uncharted waters together. Tomorrow, March 16, will be a regular day off for students. Although it will be similar to a "snow day" please remember that it has been recommended by the Department of Health that we practice "social distancing" which means we should try and limit play dates and other group activities while we are home tomorrow.
