Reminder, Staff PD Day Tomorrow, 4/17
Reminder, Staff PD Day Tomorrow, 4/17

Hello OCRS families,

We've almost completed this week of online learning! Thank you for your continued cooperation and support. All of the OCRS teachers and staff understand how challenging this has been for families and we appreciate everything that you are doing.

I wanted to send out a reminder to all families that tomorrow (Friday, 4/17) is still an online learning day for students, but there won't be any "live" teaching via video because the teachers and staff will be participating in professional development.

  • Teachers will post a few low-key activities in Google Classroom for students to engage in on these Fridays. Some examples will be to finish up owed work, read to someone in your house (or read silently), play a math game, draw something that you learned about this week, etc.
  • Students do NOT need to adhere to any specific schedule or time requirements tomorrow. We know that students and families could use a break and may appreciate a less structured day to end the week.
  • Please don't forget to sign your child into the online attendance form tomorrow because Smithfield is still counting 4/17 as a school day.

Thank you!
Mr. Barrette
