SPS will remain closed for students through the end of April with a tentative date to resume on May 1, 2020. In order to best reach our students during this prolonged closure, we are going to continue our distance learning beginning on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. The provided lessons will be designed to reinforce and enrich student skills while school is closed. They are NOT meant to add stress to an already very difficult time in our lives. Communicate with your child’s teachers if you have any questions or concerns, and please continue to check your email regularly for updates and information. If you have not heard from your student’s teacher(s) or have questions, please email them. To find email addresses, go to the school’s website via www.spartanburgprep.org to locate email addresses.
Kindergarten-1st grade students will receive an activity matrix each week. A new matrix will be posted on the teacher's Google Classroom page weekly as well as emailed by the grade level administrator. It will contain a variety of activities to complete each week in each subject. In addition, as a supplemental extension, teachers will upload videos for each subject daily in their Google Classroom. Please note, the videos are not required to be able to complete the matrix. The matrix does not have to be printed, but if you would like a hard copy and are unable to print one, you may pick up hard copies of all 4 weeks on Monday, April 6th from 8:00am-4:00pm at the school. Journals will also be provided for students to complete their activities. If your student needs a journal, they will be available for pickup on Monday as well. Students can also use a notebook they have at home as a journal. Specials teachers will also post activity videos in your child's homeroom teacher's class each day that your child may complete. Teachers will be available each day, Monday- Friday from 8:30-11:00 and 1:00-3:30 to help students with individual needs. Please contact the teachers and let them know help is needed, and they will coordinate with you to best help the student.
2nd-8th Grade Students will receive mini lessons via video in each subject and will have assignments to complete each day via Google Classroom. Assignments for each subject will be posted by 7am each day beginning on Tuesday, April 7th. Since your child has multiple teachers, they will need to log into each of their teacher's Google Classrooms for their assignments. Specials teachers will also post activity videos in your child's homeroom teacher's class each day that your child may complete. Teachers will be available each day from 8:30-11:00 and 1:00-3:30 to help students with individual needs. Please contact the teachers and let them know help is needed, and they will coordinate with you to best help the student.
