Hello, Main Families!  We miss seeing all of your smiling faces each day!  We know these are unprecedented, challenging times.  The district is working to navigate a number of areas right now, and we appreciate your patience as we do so.  Teachers have been placing phone calls this week to check in with you and your children.  They are also connecting via email, Classroom Dojo, and other apps they already had established with you before we left school.  Teachers have enjoyed connecting with you and hearing from their student!  I have a few pieces of information in this newsletter about remote learning, social media, and ways to stay connected.
The district is still navigating how to go about remote learning.  Many of you have asked about borrowing Chrome books.  We are looking into this and will get back to you.  In the meantime, there are activities your child can do at home to keep the learning going and stay engaged.

Set a daily schedule for your child to follow.  This can include learning, chores, physical activity, and family interactions.

Some of the things children can do are read, write stories, practice math facts and problems, exercise, play board games, complete chores, and read to a sibling.  Learning can still happen away from school!

If you have an electronic device for them to use, there are resources online that they can utilize.  I have provided a few links for you to access:  Scholastic MagazineSami's Circuit, Mystery Science, Math, and Readworks.  

One way we are communicating with our families is via our social media sites.  If you are not connected to one of these, please strongly consider doing so.

Also check the district and school websites for updates as well.  We will have access to a YouTube channel for Main Avenue soon too.

We use our school messenger calling system often.  When you see the school or district number come up on your phone, please answer it.  It will have the latest information for you.  

We were in the midst of celebrating Dr. Seuss this month.  We had a Crazy Socks Day planned for this Friday and we aren't going to let school closures stop us from having some school spirit!  On Friday, we will post on social media for Crazy Socks Day.  You are welcome to post pictures of your family in crazy socks or, you can email a photo to Mrs. Hansen, our social media guru.  Her email is  She will post it for you. To get you excited, here are Ms. Neuhaus' crazy socks!

Ms. Neuhaus will also post a video sharing our weekly Dr. Seuss trivia question that we missed this Tuesday.  Look for it!

The district is still offering food service during school closures for children under the age of eighteen.  Our school buses are stopping at designated routes on certain days to deliver breakfast and lunch.  Please visit our district website for the most up-to-date information - Meals on Wheels
