Email from Patterson
Mon, Mar 23 8:23am

I have copied the email we all just received for those that may not see it in their emails: 

 

Dear Patterson Pride,


I hope you and your family are happy, healthy, and you have been able to spend some quality time together. We are missing all of our students and please find comfort knowing your teachers will be with you every step of the way. We are all in this together. As of now, districts are in collaboration with the state government to provide instructional guidelines within the current law to ensure learning is accessible for all students. We should be receiving more in-depth guidance around March 30th on what the formal instruction will look like in order to produce a more consistent schedule. Teachers are coming back from Spring Break today and will be contacting all families to provide any guidance on enrichment resources, suggested/optional home schedules for this week, and to answer any questions.


All staff will be available from at least 8am-4pm via email throughout the closure. We understand that each family is in a different situation so our goal is to provide each family with what they need until and after we have a consistent instructional platform for all students. New and updated information will be coming out by the day, but the previous CUSD email with enrichment activities will be especially helpful this week.

Dear Chandler Unified Parents and Guardians,


During the school closure, it is our desire to provide the students of Chandler Unified School District the opportunity to continue their educational experience through enrichment resources. Below are links to resources categorized by content area and grade level for at-home enrichment in learning. Please use the list as options from which to explore and select activities of interest.

Please use  Google Chrome as your browser to access the provided links.  These links are also available online at: www.cusd80.com/Enrichment

We are currently developing options for those that do not have access

to technology. More information regarding our distribution process for hard-copy instructional resources will soon be provided to our Chandler Unified
families. Thank you for your partnership as we continue to focus on the safety
and health of our community.
