RE: Distance Learning Program
Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,
Acorn Montessori School values your child’s education and is committed to providing opportunities for growth despite school closures. To keep our students engaged, learning, and on pace with standards during this trying time, we have prepared our teachers to support their students while school is not in session. In an attempt to provide continuity in this learning process, Acorn has set up a distance learning program.
Your child’s academic program for the duration of the closure, along with a learning packet, is on our website (www.acornmontessori.com) under the Distance Learning tab. Click on your child’s teacher and follow the directions to download the packet and access the accompanying online resources. Should you need a paper packet, they will be available for pick up at your child’s school on Tuesday, March 17th and Wednesday, March 18th between 7:30-4:00. We ask that you please call ahead so that we can have the correct packet prepared for your arrival. (Main: 772-5778; West: 775-0238). Students will complete and submit their work online, or in person upon return.
In terms of distance learning, the intention is not to replace the experience students would have in their classroom, but to support them with continued learning while away from campus. The lesson plans and activities the teacher has organized will help them to progress to the end of the year goals. Your child’s teacher will be available to answer any questions and to provide clarification during the school closure Monday-Friday between the hours of 7:30 and 4:00. You may reach your child’s teacher through the email on their distance learning tab. However, the quickest and most effective method of communication will be through your child’s REMIND app. If you are not already signed up for this, please follow the directions on the classroom tab. All teachers will be using the REMIND app to communicate with you, post updates, and provide helpful links for your family.
**If you do not have access to books at home, please contact us Tuesday or Wednesday at the numbers listed above and we will gather books for your child to borrow during the closure.
We deeply appreciate all of the support from our Acorn family community during this unprecedented and difficult situation. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure the best for your student while keeping safety and well-being our number one priority.

In the tradition of staying in the forefront of education Acorn Montessori is joining the Cloud computing movement. What does this mean for education? Some would say endless possibilities. Through our new implementation of Google Chromebooks our students will be immersed in a high degree of technology in the classroom on a daily basis.
