K-6 Parent School Reopening Update August 20, 2020

  • Dear K-6 Octorara Families,

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! With all the recent changes in school reopening plans, I am sure you have questions, as our traditional ways of doing things have changed.  We hope that this email helps answer some of your questions.  As always, feel free to contact us for further clarification.

    The district will be sending a Remote Learning Plan out Monday, August 24 to help explain remote learning procedures, grade level sample schedules, students expectations, directions, etc.  This document will answer many of your questions about your child’s day during the remote learning time.

    Class assignments will be emailed out by Friday, August 28.  There will be no paper mailings this year.  All communication will be done through email so if you are not receiving emails, please contact the building principal to make sure we have the correct email on file.  

    Device and student materials for remote learning will need to be picked up during the week of August 31.  Devices, chargers and materials will be available for pick up from your child’s school on the following days and times: 

    • August 31, 12:00pm -5:00pm 
    • September 1, 7:00am-12:00pm 
    • September 2, 12:00pm-5:00pm
    • September 3, 7:00am-12:00pm  

    Suggested school supply lists can be found at the links below:




    During the week of August 31, principals will be posting information to the parent resource website which will include the Sneak a Peek schedule and meeting links to teacher classrooms.  The website will also include video tutorials to show parents and students how to navigate their device, log into the Learning Management System, and find the Google Meet link for his/her teacher. 

    Sneak a peek will take place remotely on the dates and times listed below for each building.  Students will need their device to attend Sneak a Peek.
