Temple High School/Junior High
Distant Learning Plan
Dear parents and caregivers,
On March 25th the State Board of Education voted to close public school buildings and complete the 2019-20 school year with a distance learning plan. On April 6th Temple JH/High School will move forward with a distance learning plan. This means students and teachers will not return to campus. This has weighed heavily on our hearts because we have missed the students so much and it is difficult to fathom ending the school year in such a different way. While it will look different, there still will be learning and instruction going on. It will just look different. Our Teachers will utilize parent contact avenues such as Facebook, Zoom, Google Meet, email, etc. throughout the week when needed. Teachers will be available to help with packets via email or through online communication. Get with your child’s teacher to see which form of communication they are using.
Our distance learning plan was made using the guidance and support provided by the Oklahoma State Department of Education found at www.sde.ok.gov/distancelearning. The school day is no longer the typical six-hour day. We recommend allotting 30-45 minutes per subject each day in the same order as your child’s normal classes would take place. These are approximate times and we certainly want to encourage flexibility, but we do not want students or parents to get overwhelmed during stressful times. Learning packets will be distributed on Thursday April 2nd at the lunch pickup from 11:00 to 12:00 at the cafeteria. Assignments can be dropped off on Thursdays during lunch pickup. We will have a time scheduled later to pick up your child’s belongings. Attached to this letter you will find a list of free online educational resources. Thank you so much for your continued support and for being an active part of your child’s education.
