April 8, 2020
Dear Parents/Guardians and constituents of Charter Oak-Ute,
Governor Reynolds has extended her recommendation for school closure to last through April 30, 2020 as many of you very well know. With this news, our school has elected to continue to provide your students and our families with voluntary instructional material to help your student maintain and possiblly progress their learning to get through this time. This material is all voluntary, where no credit is offered and is not required. Although it is voluntary, remember that this is the best we can do and all of us need to want our students to move forward no matter the circumstances.
Our teachers are working to provide materials for you to use in order to make this time as normal and useful as possible. All grades will have a packet to pick-up during this time. Also, there are on-line resources that are available for all of our students as well. It is strongly encouraged to look on-line and at the information in your packets to have a grasp of what is being provided. Our teachers will be in contact with you and you can contact them to ask questions about any of the material.
Again, we have created an online resource center as well that will give you information about how to contact teachers and some resources that are available to you. You can see this information by doing the following:
- Go to www.co-u.net
- Click on MENU at the top of the page
- Click on the DOCUMENTS icon
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Classroom Resources folder link
- Once here you can navigate within the folder to find your supplemental classroom resources and notes
Teachers will be updating this as they see fit. With-in the online resources and/or packets you will find contact information for the teachers in case you have a question or would like assistance with any of the information that they have provided for you. Please do not hesitate to communicate with them as we are here to help you in anyway we can while staying safe and following CDC and IDPH guidelines and recommendations.
On Tuesday, April 14th, we will have pick up times for the packets at the school. We are going to stagger times as to not have a huge rush and be overloaded. We are asking that you enter the north side of the school lot at the corner of 3rd St. and Oak St. Once you have entered that drive, please drive to the south side of the cafeteria edition and we will have staff meet your car at the bus drop off station. We will ask what grade levels you have and give you your packets of information through your car window. Essentially, this is like a drive up service. The times I am asking you to come are as follows:
PRESCHOOL and Kindergarten 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
1st grade and 2nd grade 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
3rd grade and 4th grade 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
5th grade and 6th grade 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
7th grade and 8th grade 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Please adhere to this schedule to allow for us to be able to be as organized as possible and try to limit the number of vehicles that are flowing through our location. If you have students in multiple grades, come at your youngest child’s time and we will get you all of your students’ materials at that time.
If you have any further questions of concerns please do not hesitate to contact your student’s teacher regarding materials, and contact myself regarding system questions. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at 712-269-8178. Thank you and stay safe.
