March 30th, 2020 Updates

Happy Monday Slade Families! I hope you are fining a rhythm and routine in your days and are experiencing joy in the simple things. As Dr. Yennie stated in his phone call message on Sunday, schools will now be closed through April 17th, 2020 and we will move to virtual learning beginning April 6th. The school district also sent out a survey asking about technology needs for families. Please complete this survey so we can understand how to best serve you during this time.

This morning we sent out a Slade Communications with a letter from me and a link to community resources. The  links are below for your convenience.  Please reach out and let us know how we can support you!

Happy Monday Slade Families! Today is certainly different than I had imagined it just a week ago. I hope you are all staying healthy and adjusting to your new normal.

Dear Slade Families:

I hope this message finds you well. I have been thinking of you during this interesting time. As many of you know, the school board held a meeting last Wednesday night to confirm the closure of the all ACSD#1 schools until April 3rd, with students returning to school on April 6th.  Please know that this is the information we have at this time. Each day brings new challenges and changes to our plan for keeping all families safe.

The school district and Slade teachers are working on how to provide at home learning opportunities for all of our students K-5. Please plan to receive more information from me and your child's teacher over the next week as we gain a better picture of what to expect over the coming weeks. This is uncharted territory for all teachers, and our number one goal is to support Slade families and students the best we can. If you need specific help, please reach out. Slade teachers and I will also be reaching out to find ways to connect with students and families during this time away from school.

For now, enjoy this downtime as a family, rest, and be well.

Respectfully, Heather Moro, Principal

Slade Guidelines for Success

Bullying Parent Handout

Slade Elementary School is a school-wide program that receives extra funding through Title I federal funds. With these funds we have been able to hire highly qualified reading and math intervention teachers to work with small groups of students. Having this highly qualified staff allows us to reduce student to teacher ratios and give all students the attention they require. 

Being a school-wide Title I school has also allowed us to purchase extra learning materials to enhance our students’ education. Providing this early intervention is an important key to success for children. At Slade, extra assistance is provided as early as possible in a student’s career in order to support a strong educational start.
