Putnam Edge students, parents and community members,
I know this has been a stressful, uncertain time. I want you to know our staff has been working long hours putting together plans for our students and staff.
While information regarding the COVID-19 situation continues to change daily, our students remain our number one priority. Virtual and Distance Learning will begin on Monday, March 30, and is expected to continue until April 15. As part of the at-home instructional plan, laptops will be available for pick-up in the main office for students and families who do not have this technology at home. Here are the details:
Laptop checkout will take place from 9 am-12 pm and 4 pm -6 pm on March 24 through the 26th.
Putnam Edge is a blended learning environment families with their own technology, and internet access will be able to participate in our virtual learning platforms APEX, Algebra Nation, and Study Island. These online learning platforms are very familiar to our students as they have been working in these programs all year. We are working on instructional videos to help parents find and navigate online programs.
We are still waiting on guidance regarding special events such as prom and graduations.
We will continue to monitor information that comes in from the state and federal government and notify you of any changes that will impact our district and school.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the school for more assistants.
Thank you for your patience. Please remember, we are all in this together.
Emmanuel Swift, Th.D.
