Middleborough Public School Official Extended Learning Launch

Posted by Sean Siciliano on 3/20/2020 3:00:00 PM

Dear Parents & Guardians, 

Thank you for your continued patience and support during this difficult time for our community. As you know, we are scheduled to return to school on Monday, April 6, 2020 but, in the meantime, our faculty and staff have worked collectively to develop learning opportunities and options for our students and families during this school closure!

 Please see the items below for more information:

  • The following link https://www.middleboro.k12.ma.us/extendedlearning will bring you to access our web page for “Extended Learning.” Our goal is that this is a resource for students and families to ensure that our students continue to be enriched with learning experiences throughout the next couple of weeks (and beyond if necessary).
  • Our faculty and staff will be checking their school emails multiple times per day. It is imperative that our families have a direct line of communication with school folks as needed and appropriate. Email is the best avenue for communication.
  • We are also encouraging staff to share with students utilizing a platform they are comfortable with (Google Classroom,ClassLink,Class Tag,email etc.). Additional learning opportunities that are more specifically based on student needs, grade level, course, etc will be shared by individual faculty member(s). These suggestions might bolster those provided on the website.
  • Faculty and staff have been advised that no NEW content should be presented to students during this closure. Please know that the resources provided through the MPS website are not the only options for our students.

In closing, these three weeks are non-school days and so there is only an expectation of continuation of learning. This would be similar to completing enrichment activities, reading lists, online practice, etc. Students should not be completing assignments that are due to be graded and teachers should not be assigning new work or expecting students to submit work to be graded.

Thank you again for your patience as we are all learning together during this difficult time. As always don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s principal or myself with any questions, suggestions, comments or concerns.
