Update on Distance Learning: March 17, 2020

Woodland Hills Elementary

Dear Woodland Hills Families, 

During Hurricane Harvey, our community pulled together to meet challenges. Once again, we are in complex and unusual circumstances that require doing things in new ways.

Woodland Hills Elementary School will continue to provide students with learning opportunities while our campus is closed.

You can expect that, just as face-to-face learning environments vary, learning will look different in different classes. Our teachers are converting their instruction to a remote learning format. By 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, information will be made available from all teachers.

Over the last few days, teachers have been working to create a menu of continued learning opportunities for students.  We encourage our students to complete as many of the activities as possible each week. Weekly Continued Learning Plans will be shared by your child’s teacher, and will be posted to our WHE website.  Teachers will continue to regularly communicate with you, and are available to support you and your child in navigating through these activities.

We know that this time is stressful for you and your children. We are here for you and are dedicated to making sure that all of our students experience success and are confident in their abilities. Teachers, counselors and administrators are working from home, and are not on campus.  We can be reached by email. The district is working on options for parents to reach school staff by phone.

The third 9-week grading period that was originally scheduled to end on Friday, March 20, has been extended through Friday, March 27. Teachers will work with their students to complete the nine weeks. 

Please note: Throughout Humble ISD, high school campuses are closed; this includes all outside facilities. Middle school tracks remain open to the public at this time. Elementary school playgrounds remain open to the public at this time, and playground equipment will be cleaned daily. Despite daily cleaning, families should be aware that the Coronavirus can live on hard surfaces for days. Health officials recommend frequent hand washing and social distancing. 

Thank you for supporting Woodland Hills Elementary School as we work through these challenging constantly-evolving circumstances.

Sincerely,

Cindy Barker
Principal
