Dear McClave School Community,

We need to let you know that a member of our school community has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.  As a result of this positive test, we are going to remote learning for all 9th – 12th grade students for the next two weeks. These students will resume in person learning on Monday, November 16th. All high school activities for the next two weeks have been suspended. We will continue with in-person learning for grades Pre-K through 8th grade. 

Students in 9th – 12th grade will need to make sure they log on to Google Meet during their regularly scheduled class time. We will follow the same schedule as we would during in-person learning. 

We have worked hard to try to keep this virus out of our building, and we are thankful for the success up to this point.  More details will be sent out over the next few days on what this means for the rest of the school.  Some activities may be rescheduled, and others will be cancelled.  Please monitor communication from the school via text, Facebook, and our website.

We will continue to do our best to communicate with health officials, staff, and parents as we navigate this virus.  We appreciate your support and will continue working together to overcome this challenge.

Sincerely,

Mr. Holmes & Mrs. Howe

A note from Mrs. Howe:

During this time of mandated school closures and social distancing, McClave School will be closed until April 17th. In an effort to continue to provide an education to your children, McClave School will offer a variety of educational options. All completed assignments will be used as participatory grades only. 

McClave elementary students will be receiving worksheet packets every two weeks.  The first packets should start arriving in the mail by Monday, March 30th. In order to eliminate germs, we ask that the packet not be mailed back to the school. Instead, please take pictures of completed pages and send them to your child’s teacher. McClave students will also receive educational options through supplemental online resources such as IStation, ClassDojo, Renaissance Learning, Storyworks, among others. Please see the links of free websites located below. 

Our junior high and high school students at McClave will be receiving mostly an online format for the delivery of instruction. We will be utilizing Google Classroom, a platform that is already used by many of the educators in our building. Many of our teachers have already reached out to your children from Google Classroom. For students that do not have online access, we are encouraging parents to take advantage of current offers available. Service providers, like Spectrum, are offering 60 days of free internet to households with school-aged children. If this is not an option for you, your student will receive paper copies of the curriculum that they will need to complete.   

The McClave School District will be providing meals for pickup from 11:00am-1:00pm on Mondays. This service will start this coming Monday, March 30th. Families that have already indicated a need on our survey will receive a box with enough breakfasts and lunches for McClave students in the household. Each box will contain four days worth of meals. Please use the designated bus lanes on the north side of the school as the pickup zone for your meals. We will greet you with a meal box at your vehicle. If you didn’t complete our survey and would like to participate in this service, please contact the school to ensure that we prepare enough meal boxes.
