Continuity of Learning During School Closure

Phone Message sent home 3/24/20

Good afternoon King families. This is an important message from Thomas Starr King Middle School. Superintendent Beutner announced yesterday that all LA Unified schools will remain closed until May 1st. There are a lot of moving pieces for a school of our size to adapt to these unchartered waters, and we thank you for your patience, flexibility, and support as we work through this together. Teams of teachers are currently collaborating to devise a meaningful weekly routine and learning plan with the best interests of our students and families in mind. These details will be communicated by teachers by the end of the week. In the meantime, please encourage your children to monitor their Schoology accounts for any lessons or assignments.

Between our talented teachers and staff and our unique iPad program, we are confident that King students will continue to develop their intellect, creativity, curiosity, and compassion. Thank you, again, for your patience, flexibility, and support, and we wish you strength and health during these unprecedented times.
