Update on Distance Learning: March 17, 2020

Dear Atascocita Springs 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.

Atascocita Springs 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.

Atascocita Springs teachers will provide a menu of learning opportunities for each subject area per grade level.  An At-Home Learning plan will be sent through email that will show daily learning opportunities within each grade level.  This will be helpful for those of you that have multiple students. Teachers will be sending an email with specific instructions for accessing their plans as well as following up with personal phone calls to check on anything you may need as a family. 

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 Atascocita Springs Elementary School as we work through these challenging constantly-evolving circumstances.

Sincerely,

Cheryl Fennell
Principal
