Burrillville Virtual/Distance Learning

No School Friday, April 17, 2020 Teacher Professional Development

Dear Callahan Families,

Thank you Callahan Families for taking distance learning so serious. While I know how hard we are all working to make this happen it does not go unnoticed the challenges that each family and educators face as we move further along with virtual learning. Please continue to emphasize to your children that this is school time. If there is anything I can do to help please feel free to reach out to me. I will be distributing reimbursement checks this week for families of students in grades 4 & 5 that paid for Nature’s classroom. I have sent those families a separate e-mail outlining the procedure for this. Please continue to email your teacher or me with any issues that may arise. We are in this together!!

Nature’s Classroom- Reimbursement checks and returned un-cashed checks will be handed out at Callahan this week. When parents come to the school for the check please bring your own pen to sign that you received the check. The checks were placed in envelopes by us practicing the guidelines set out by the state of RIDOH. Masks and gloves were worn. Please report to the front of the school with your own pen and ring the buzzer at the door. The check reimbursement will take place during these times:

    • Monday, April 13: 2:00-4:00PM

    • Tuesday, April 14: 7:45-9:45AM & 12:30-4:00PM

If these times do not work for you, please contact me at: brissetted@bsd-ri.net or at 401-568-1330 during school hours.

Specials-Some students have had issues with assignments and getting into Art, Music, PE/Health, and Library/tech. Please contact the specials teacher directly for help on any assignments. Special teachers will continue to be live from 12-12:30 and available for help from 12:30-1:00 (right after the class in the same meet/zoom).

Virtual Spirit Week-The BHS Student council continues to come up with the week's theme! In order to participate, please check the weekly spirit week flyer (attached) and plan to dress for the day's theme or set aside time to do the activity. At some point during the day, take a photo of your child (or if they can have them) in their attire or them completing the activity. Finally, email the photo to brissetted@bsd-ri.net. Photos will be shared virtually to show our community spirit and continue to remind us that we are all in this together!

ATTENTION Daily Lunches- Lunch distribution in Burrillville will continue throughout distance learning. Bag lunches are being offered at Callahan daily from 11:00-12:00. Your child needs to be there to pick the lunch up. This is being done in front of the school of WLC. Please practice social distancing when coming to get lunches.

A message from PTA:

The popcorn fundraising order has been submitted and once it arrives to us we will contact parents about arranging a pickup time. We don’t have anything else until we come up with concrete plans for the rest of the year. Thanks and I hope you’re all hanging in there.
