    Distance Learning Starts Monday March 30

    On Monday, March 30, 2020 Washington Open students and teachers will begin their distance learning voyage.

    You should have already received email from the District about the schedule and some details for distance learning.  Information about distance learning can be found on the District's webpage.  The document A Family Guide to Distance Learning in SCUSD is particularly helpful.

    In addition, you should receive email directly from your child's teacher with specifics about schedules, a link to their Google Classroom, and information about how to attend the first online class meeting using Google Meet.  If you do not receive this information, contact your teacher.

    On March 30, each class will have a 15-minute kick-off meeting to learn about the online tools and talk about how to use them respectfully.  Grade levels will meet at the times below:

    • Kindergarten - 8:15 am
    • First Grade - 8:30 am
    • Second Grade - 8:45 am
    • Third Grade - 9:00 am
    • Fourth Grade - 9:15 am
    • Fifth Grade - 9:30 am

    This schedule applies to March 30 only.  Your child's teacher will give you the information about meeting times for the following days.

    Please continue to check your email frequently for additional information and meeting times from your child's teacher.  This is new for everyone, so please be patient as we work out any issues.
