During this unique time, we are working hard to provide Wolfe students as much academic instruction and continuation of their learning as possible, while also being cognizant of social distancing for their health and safety. Below is information that will help you to navigate this difficult time as well as instructional options for your student to participate in over the course of the next three weeks.
Quarter 3 Assignments: At this time, the plan is for Quarter 3 to end with current grades, as is. If students have missing assignments, all students will be given the opportunity to complete these assignments by Monday, April 13th in order to improve their grade(s). Copies of all Quarter 3 assignments will be emailed to all students at their clps.org email address. This will provide students the opportunity to print off and complete anything that currently is missing according to PowerSchool. If you need a hard copy of any of the assignments, please call 586-510-2300 option 3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and leave a detailed message of what classes you need copies for. We will arrange for the hardcopies to be printed and delivered to your nearest bus stop or picked up outside of the school at a predetermined day/time. All assignments can be digitally submitted or turned in upon our return.
Teacher Communication: During these three weeks, your son/daughter’s 4th hour teacher will be calling twice a week to check on your child and their academic progress. At this time, please make sure to share with your teacher any type of support you may need – accessing academic work, submitting missing assignments, accessing their clps.org email address, food delivery bus route schedule, etc. We are eager to help you navigate this difficult time the best we can!
Additional Important Announcements
Food Delivery/Bus Routes: We are providing breakfast and lunch each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to our students during the mandatory shutdown (March 16-April 3). Our food service staff will prepare meals that will be delivered by bus to designated bus stops each weekday from 10:00 to 11:00am (see attached schedule). An adult or older sibling may take food for the entire family of enrolled students in the district. School of choice students may go to any of the stops listed to pick up meals for that day.
Enrichment Activities: We have provided a list of enrichment activities below for students to complete during this three week time frame. These activities will allow students to explore a wide variety of topics such as nature, cooking, reading, etc. Students are encouraged to share their experiences on social media (Facebook or Twitter) with the hashtag #Wolfe #LoveCLPS @SchoolWolfe. Additionally, journaling of their experiences is highly encouraged – journals can be requested at 586-510-2300 option 3 or Roperj@clps.org. When we return in mid-April, students who have participated in the journaling process or have used the hashtags will be entered to win one of many prizes!
