A Message From The Superintendent ...
March 18, 2020
Dear SMSD Families:
First, we want to thank you for your patience during this new and unique situation we are all experiencing.
Your child’s teachers and service providers have put together home learning packets to keep your child stimulated and continue their education. These packets of work have been sent home by mail or, in some cases were delivered. If you haven’t received your packet yet, you can expect it to be delivered within the next several days.
Moving forward, it’s important that we find ways to send more assignments, lessons, and learning resources home. Our goal is to use technology as much as possible to provide instruction. This is the safest and most efficient method of instruction at this time. Some students will benefit from using technology directly, other students will benefit from having ideas/lessons sent to caregivers who can then implement the instruction and therapeutic plans.
You will be receiving a phone call to collect information regarding your family’s internet access. We know some families may not have access to the internet, or may have limited access (through a smart phone for example). We’re committed to working with each family to provide access to information in the safest way possible during this national crisis.
Do not hesitate to reach out to the school directly with any questions/concerns you may have. SMSD is “Child First”.
Timothy M. Kelly
