Superintendent's Message- Coronavirus Message

  • Dear Parents/Guardians/Staff,

    We are working diligently to ensure that our students have access to a computing device during this unprecedented time. To that end, we will be distributing loaner laptops to our high school students in need tomorrow. Each family/student will be given a loaner device. You will be contacted by a school official prior to Wednesday with instructions regarding time, location, and proper identification to receive the device. Subsequently, we anticipate distributing additional loaner devices each Wednesday through the month of April per designated K-8 Schools.

    Please be patient as this is a time-consuming process primarily due to repair parts that have not yet been received, updates to laptops, increased requests and the maintenance of safe social distancing practices in the workplace and distribution process.

    Due to a limited number of devices being available at this time, our school leaders and staff are vetting and assessing the need for each request that is being made. We will designate pick-up dates, locations and times as we approach each distribution Wednesday. Thank you for your patience and cooperation in this matter. We do need to reiterate that these are loaner computers that are expected to be returned in order for us to maintain a high level of education in and out of schools for our students.

    Additionally, the Governor’s most recent Executive Order requires that schools must remain open during the spring recess and provide digital learning opportunities for our students, continue breakfast and lunch service and child care for essential workers. Our teachers are prepared to continue to provide this support during the previously planned recess in order to comply with this Executive Order. Our failure to do so will subject the district to a significant financial penalty.

    Lastly, please take the time to complete your census. The completion rate for MV is extremely low. The census provides the bases for considerable resources to the city. It is vital that you do your part.

    Yours for the Sake of All Children,

     

    Dr. Kenneth R. Hamilton
