Welcome back to school and good afternoon East Noble School Corporation families. It appears that 2015 is beginning very similar to 2014. There is a current weather alert calling for 4-7 inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday morning along with extreme wind chills.
Our first choice is always to have students in classrooms working directly with teachers. However, East Noble School Corporation has been approved to use eLearning days when we are not able to hold traditional classes due to poor weather conditions. Last October, ENSC held an eLearning day which provided excellent practice and preparation for future elearning days.
We are watching the current weather forecast very closely and if the weather does not allow us to hold classes in school buildings on Tuesday, Jan. 6, we will use eLearning for that school day. In addition, if we are not able to hold classes in school buildings on Wednesday, Jan. 7, we will use eLearning for a second day. We will use no more than these two days for eLearning this week. These eLearning days will only be possible if we hold school Monday, Jan. 5.
The decision to hold eLearning days will not be made until Tuesday and/or Wednesday morning. If school is closed on either day, these days will be eLearning days. All students will receive information during school on Monday, Jan. 5. Students in grades 5-12 will have normal access to Canvas for additional information. Students in grades Kindergarten through 4th grade will take their devices home with them on Monday along with additional information. Teachers will be available during normal school hours through email or the learning management system. Also, as with any eLearning activities, students will be provided appropriate or extended completion due dates.
This message is being sent to you on this Sunday afternoon so that you have appropriate time to make any needed plans or arrangements for Tuesday and/or Wednesday.
Thank you for the support you provide to your children and East Noble School Corporation every day!
Ann Linson, Superintendent
