2019-2020 School Year


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Breckenridge Elementary School will be implementing Flexible Learning Days when there is no school due to inclement weather.  Through our Flexible Learning Days, students will be able to continue working on classroom learning objectives while at home.  Students will continue to excel and grow in their current levels of learning without skipping a beat.  Another plus is that students will be able to explore objectives in a different setting and build stronger relationships with parents/guardians.

Our Flexible Learning Days will replace Snow Days.  If school is cancelled due to the weather, students will continue their learning journey at home.  Students will use their personal devices at home, unless the household does not own one, to complete various activities set up by the classroom teacher.  If you do not have access to the online resources, students will have a copy of each activity choice in his or her binder.  These resources will be in all students’ binders at all times.  Copies can be made from our 3rd grade websites if needed.  All students will have 3 days total to complete the activities. Parents/guardians MUST sign off upon completion of the activities before students turn in their assignment(s).  This gives students ample time to ask their teacher questions about their assignment(s) if they did not understand what to do while working on them at home, and were not able to email their teacher for explanation.  If assignments are not completed within the three-day window, students will receive an unexcused absence for the Flexible Learning Day.

Guideline and Expectation for Flexible Learning Days:

* Attendance will be taken within two days after the Flexible Learning Day.  Students will receive an unexcused absence for not turning in their assignments on time.

* Assignments and directions will be posted on each teacher’s website by 10:00 as that day under the Flexible Learning Day tab.

* Teachers will be available via email from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm to answer questions from parents or students.





If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us.
