Reed said school buses would be running from normal start time until about 11a.
Salem Schools will hold its first eLearning Day on Thursday, March 22.
“We have received permission from the state to have the eLearning date on March 22,” said Superintendent Dr. DL Reed. “We will be sending home letters and have a link online if the child needs transportation.” (see link below)
Salem was approved this week to make up the February 7 school cancellation utilizing this option from the Indiana Department of Education.
“If any child needs transportation we will make that available through our bus routes,” Reed said. “We are asking that children sign up by Monday at noon so we can coordinate the routes. This is just for Thursday. If you have internet at home, they don’t have to come in. The transportation is for children who don’t have internet access at home. We will have all buildings open. Staff will be in the computer rooms.”
All three county schools now will be utilizing eLearning day, which is to allow students to practice important 21st century skills away from a traditional classroom setting.
They will be able to work, create and collaborate in order to complete assignments given by teachers. They are encouraged to practice good time management to complete the work before the due date.
In this unique case, the eLearning window has been extended beyond a normal timeframe to allow students to have their Spring Break off as well. The school will require that all work be turned in before the student leaves school on Tuesday, April 3.
Student will need to log into their Google Classroom account to access the eLearning materials. Students have their login information and have been practicing the types of work they will need to do on the eLearning Day.
Additional information will be posted on the school website closer to March 22.
