Remote Learning Expectations During 2 Week Pivots After the Thanksgiving and Winter Holiday Periods

November 20, 2020

Dear families,

It was a pleasure to meet with some of you this morning at our first virtual Parent Advisory Group meeting of the school year.

  • Remote Learning Expectations Letter from our School Principal: Today we are sharing a letter (Letter to Families: 11.2020) from our school principal regarding students’ expectations during our two pivots to remote instruction after the Thanksgiving recess and winter vacation periods. If you have any follow-up questions, please contact your student’s case manager for assistance or additional information. Our team has been working actively to ensure that our students will be set up for success as we head into the holidays.
  • Transportation During Temporary Pivots to Remote Instruction: Milestones previously notified all students’ district liaisons about our plans for two proactive pivots to temporary remote instruction so that districts can update their respective transportation companies. Next week Milestones will pass out a reminder flyer to all van drivers, and we will present a similar reminder flyer to van drivers prior to the winter holiday vacation period. Parents/guardians are welcome to outreach to your student’s transportation provider as well if your student’s driver or agency is accustomed to being notified directly from families regarding schedule changes.
  • Follow-Up Information from the PAG meeting: Next week I will email all families with minutes from this morning’s PAG meeting as well as a copy of the slide presentation from our parent training. Please also be on the lookout for a Constant Contact memo that will be sent by Milestones that will provide additional details regarding our exciting upcoming programmatic enhancements and expansion that were discussed with families at this morning’s PAG meeting and were initially previewed at our fall Town Hall meeting in October.

Have a great weekend, and we’ll look forward to being in touch again next week before Thanksgiving.
