Versailles Schools are committed to supporting our students and community during this unprecedented activity with the COVID-19 pandemic. The closing of the school is a warranted step to help control the health care management of the disease. While the step is needed, the needs of students and families continue too.
To help support the community, the district is providing learning opportunities for students. Students in grades 4-12 will be using school-assigned chromebooks to access information. If a student does not have access to the internet, additional resources and materials will be supplied by the district. Please contact the board office at 937-526-4773. Students in grades K-2 will use “blizzard bags”. These bags will have all the materials needed to complete the assigned learning work. Blizzard bags in grades K-3 have already been sent home.
Students in grades 3 & 4 will do a combination of blizzard bags and online learning. Students not in attendance yesterday (Monday, March 16) will be contacted to make arrangements to receive the bags this week. Additional resources may be shared at a later date.
The teachers of the district will be available by email and other technology applications at convenient times for both parties.
Food services will supply prepared lunches for students who participate in the free and/or reduced lunch program. Lunches will be delivered at their residence from 11 am- 1 pm starting Wednesday, March 18. Additionally, any student who does not qualify for free and/or reduced lunches but is in need of lunch support may contact Deb Didier, Food Service Director, by email email@example.com or 937-526-4427, ext. 5000 for questions.
Our plans are changing as guidance comes from local, state and national sources. This plan will undoubtedly change.
The district is guided by our care for our students and the community. Together we will get through this time. Thanks to the teachers, aides, custodians, food service, secretaries, and transportation staff for their flexibility and focus on students’ needs.
Thank you to the community for their continuous support. I will communicate updates to our services and supports via the website, instant connect emails/phone/text messages and twitter feed (@VersaillesScho1) as changes may need to be made. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through this crisis.Aaron Moran, Superintendent
