March 20: A Message from Superintendent Jett

Dear 742 Families,

As the week draws to a close, I want to provide an update on the work we’ve been doing to prepare for distance learning.

Our first priority has been to provide continuity of critical services to our students and families.  We are serving Grab-and-Go meals, consisting of lunch, breakfast, and a snack, to all families needing the support.  We are providing school supplies to families, and our staff is offering care for the school-aged children of emergency workers.  We are proud of the support we are offering our students and families and appreciate the willingness of our community to support our efforts. 

Despite the unique situation facing us, rest assured that we are well positioned to implement distance learning based on the months of preparation we’ve done this year.  While the Governor mandated that no instruction can take place until March 30, our teachers stand ready to meet the learning needs of every student during distance learning.  We are providing technology devices to elementary families who need them and to every secondary student. Staff are making personal contacts with each family during these two weeks and administrators are using Schoology and social media as opportunities for connection with students.  You can also expect to receive communication from your child’s school in the coming days, along with additional direction from our district, about what to expect during distance learning.  

Please know we are just as committed to our staff as we are to our students and families.   Our staff are vital to the success of our school district and your children.

On behalf of our staff, we miss and care about your family.  Please hug your children for us and tell them we look forward to seeing them (in person or virtually) very soon.

Superintendent Jett
