Good morning! We are nearing the end of the 2019-20 school year and it has been a challenging one for all of us! Over the summer, we will be making preparations to be ready for whatever scenario we are faced with when it is time for school to resume. As we make these preparations, it would be very helpful to have feedback from parents and guardians as to how things really were on your end of the remote learning. Being well informed will help us tremendously. This is a link to a survey that is specific to Viola Rand School. https://forms.gle/nvTTKketQ9NXfcmg9 Your feedback is important to us as we begin this important planning! Thank you in advance for taking the time to let us know about your family's school experience this spring.

Another Thursday bus run will be rolling this morning. Please request the grade level packet your child(ren) need along with the food. Thank you for all the work you are doing as interim teachers! It is so important for children to use their skills so they don't lose them. I'm missing all of you! Be well!

Happy Thursday! The lunch buses will be around again today with another week's worth of lunches and breakfasts. Since next week is April break, the next delivery will be on April 29th. The buses will have paper copies of an optional Bingo Board for next week with the work packet for April 27-May 1. Please ask for the grade(s) you need. We will have copies in the bin in front of the school as usual!

Today is the first day of providing a week of breakfast and lunch for each student. From now on, the busses will run only on Thursdays and will drop a box of food for each child with items for a week. We will be making the process safer for all those who are involved in prepping and delivering lunches. More time at home and less contact with others for these staff members and bus drivers who are doing so much for our community!

There will also be copies of next week's lessons available for each grade in the bin at the front doors to the school in case you don't catch the bus!

If you would like to receive a hard copy, please come out to the bus and ask for the packet your child needs. There are also copies in a box at the front doors to the school if you prefer to pick up a copy there.

On Friday we had overwhelming success delivering school packets to our students. Thank you so much for meeting the bus or picking materials up. It will take a team effort to get through this and we are off to a great start! Please call the school or email any of your contacts at the Viola Rand School if you need anything. We will do our best to help! Thank you again for your help!

On Friday, when the buses make their rounds to deliver meals, there will be packets of new materials on board for students from their teachers. The buses are generally in Bradley between 10:35 and 11:40. If you have not been able to connect with the bus, please call the school to help us work that out. If you are not able to meet the bus, we will be in touch to make a plan B. (Our Old Town pre-k students will have materials delivered as Mrs. Talon has indicated.)

Viola Rand School Family update March 20, 2020 Meal Distribution Monday 3/23/20 Meals for children 0-18 will be available for pick up DAILY Monday through Friday (meal distribution for the weekend will be on Friday) by the tent at OTHS from 10am-12pm Daily bus routes will also begin Monday, March 23. Nine buses will depart OTES at 10:30am and navigate their typical routes. Here are a few things to keep in mind: • Please be patient. We do not have a timeline for how long these routes will take, yet. The typical routes will be posted, however the times listed will be the school day times, not food delivery times. • Please be safe. Wait at the stop with younger children and review with older children how to wait by themselves if you feel this is appropriate. • Please keep your distance. Do not approach or enter the bus. Staff members will exit the bus and leave items on the ground to be picked up. Share this information with your children as well. • Please call the school with any questions 827-2508. • Staff distributing materials will be using gloves and hand sanitizer regularly. • See bus routes here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_nxNESG_Y9ExsViikYDfjnel-CvOSKIm/view?usp=sharing As we get this process down, we will be sharing packets from teachers on the bus runs also. Please contact the school with any questions concerns or needs. We are here to help if we are able! Have a safe weekend, and please follow social distancing to slow the spread of this illness and help us get students back to school as soon as possible! We miss our routine with students!

As we begin this time of school closure and social distancing, here is a link to an incredible list of educational sites for you to explore. Please preview each site before your children begin using them as the caution at the bottom of each page states. I hope this is helpful as we know children will need to exercise their minds as well as their bodies! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1b0a_8B240x25C1bYDgJAJ17KvVYUvkpGsIgtHexUfVA/edit
