  •  3-27-2020 Update

    Good afternoon Buck Lake Community,

    I hope this email finds you well.  These are truly trying times.  It was so amazing to see so many families on our Parade of Smiles yesterday.  Talk about a bucket filler!  I wanted to provide you with some updates about our academic expectations for the next few weeks. 

    At this time, school buildings will be closed to students until at least April 15th.  All students (Pre-K-5th grade) including those on Access Points curriculum  will be working on academic review packets in the areas of Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies.  These packets will be accessible on the district website on the COVID-19 page and on our school webpage.  There will be a small supply of hard copy packets available at the school site.  Our front office will be open from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. for questions and to drop off or pick up items.  To help us practice social distancing, we will be putting some measures in place to help protect everyone. We will have academic packets available on a table outside the front office.  We will also have a bin available for items to be dropped off including Media Center books, completed work packets, and registration documents.  Envelopes will be available for dropped off items.  Please clearly write the person’s name on the envelope.  The drop-off bins will be checked regularly by the office staff.  If you need assistance with the academic packets, please reach out to your child’s teacher.

    If we are unable to return to school on April 15th, we will enter into distance learning driven by your child’s teacher.  Teachers will be reaching out to you next week to discuss plans for distance learning.  We all understand how difficult these times are.  Many of our families are juggling full-time jobs and child care.  Our goal with distance learning is to allow our students to finish the school year on time, not to burden our families.  Our teachers and staff will work with you on completing the assignments.  Please reach out to them with any questions or concerns about assignments.

    Please remember that you have access to your child’s classlink account.  Here they can access all their same tools they use at school.  We have worked with the district to ensure that Accelerated Reader is up and running from home, so if your child is reading AR books, they can still get points.

    Attached to this email are two documents.  First, we have created a list of 20 books on tape with QR codes.  You can have your child use a phone or tablet to access these titles.  We’re also going to put a supply of these in the lending library at the front of the school.  Many of these books are read by celebrities and are animated.  We think the kids will enjoy them since they can’t check out books at this time.  The second document is a FAQ from the district about our plan for schools.  There is a lot of helpful information included there.

    If you have questions, or need assistance, please feel free to email me:

    Stay safe and have a great day,

    Billy Millard
