We are ending our third week of closure, our third week of social distancing. As I’m sure you’ve been feeling, it has been a disconcerting, uneasy time but it has also been a time that has highlighted our strong, supportive community’s care for our children and each other.
The four secondary schools will be grading students per the directions below for Quarter 3. The philosophy driving this decision is to allow students to benefit from their efforts if they were having success in the 3rd quarter. Overall, the goal is to have no students harmed by the disruption of traditional instruction.
Based upon all of the community and student input we have received since our last posting, we would like to report that we will continue our “no harm” policy for students with some adjustments...
This is a reminder to ALL Middle Country families that we have a Grab and Go free breakfast and lunch meal program at Newfield and Centereach High Schools from 8:00 a.m. through noon, Monday through Friday, and multi-day meal packs are available for those who cannot pick-up daily.
With the uncertainty that we face for the future, here at Middle Country we have been working diligently to be able to roll out our Distance Learning Program to students in grades K through 12 so that their continuity of instruction will be maintained during these troubled times. This roll out is scheduled to take place on April 15, 2020, if school closings are extended by the governor.
