Forest County begins graded work in Phase III on Monday

Over the last several weeks, the Forest Area School District (FASD) has been working to prepare for distance learning. Teachers have been getting in touch with students to talk about packets of lessons that FASD will be providing both online and on paper — depending upon the needs of students.

On Monday, April 20, Phase III of FASD’s Continuity of Education Plan begins. In Phase III, students will be completing graded work with the help of their teachers.

“We understand that distance learning is new for both students and their families,” according to a FASD press release. “With that in mind, we are working to minimize stress associated with the transition and maximize the flexibility of our staff to meet the needs of your family.

“Students will be given assignments that they should be able to complete on their own with academic help from their teachers. We are asking parents to support their children, by reminding them of scheduled class times and ensuring that students have a quiet place to work.

“Parents are welcome to help students with their work but are certainly not required to do so. We are prepared to support our students and make distance learning a positive experience.”

If you have any questions or concerns, call your school building, email any staff member, or email info@forestareaschools.org. More information can be found on the Forest Area School District website.
