Update on Distance Learning: March 17, 2020
Dear Ridge Creek 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.
Ridge Creek 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.
Ridge Creek teachers will provide a menu of learning opportunities for students per grade level. To ease into the online learning process, please have your child complete a couple of tasks from each content area. Next week, your child’s teacher will provide more specific expectations for completing tasks from the choice boards. Our teachers will communicate to you through Class Dojo, Remind, Seesaw or e-mail.
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 Ridge Creek Elementary School as we work through these challenging constantly-evolving circumstances.
