Good afternoon, this is Greg Brown, Superintendent of Schools for Abilene USD #435. We are reaching out to you today to let you know that we are going to have to initiate approximately two weeks of remote learning for all of our students grades PreK through 12. The individual building principals will provide more detailed information this afternoon, but we expect all students to pick up what they need for remote learning tomorrow (Tuesday) from 7:40 to 3:40. Your child's principal will be reaching out to you to let you know details involved with the pickup.

Please understand this is absolutely the last thing we want to do. We understand how important it is to have our students in school, receiving a first-rate educational experience, but COVID-19 has struck our teachers and support staff significantly. We have four (4) adults who have already tested positive and (4) more not feeling well, who are being tested as I speak. The combination of adults who have tested positive and the related quarantine orders have made it necessary to take this measure. We hope to be back in school on Monday, October 5th. During the next two weeks, we will be looking at other measures to provide the face to face instruction we know our community desires in spite of the increased COVID-19 testing results.

We will not have activities during this time. The ABC program will be reaching out to provide homework support and other considerations, but we are not able to provide before or after school supervision at any of our sites. An ABC staff member will be contacting our after-school program families.

Again, this decision was not made lightly and has been made because of the number of adults in our system who have been affected by Coronavirus. One of our primary goals for taking care of your children is keeping them safe, while we are providing a world-class educational experience. We simply are not able to do this with face to face instruction at this time.

Last week, we took an in-depth look at the Brain State Model. Now, let's learn more about the specific skills that correspond to each brain state.

We'll start with the Survival State. Signs that a child is in the Survival State include hiding, fighting, surrender and physical reactions. These behaviors tell us that the child needs safety. We can provide safety using the five skills outlined in the acronym NARCS.

Let us begin with the first skill that soothes the Survival State...Noticing. Learn more below and stay tuned throughout the week for a variety of posts, tips, and videos related to this crucial skill. #iHeartCD

Thank you Greater Salina Community Foundation!

Thank you Greater Salina Community Foundation for your continued support of our Weekend Food Bag Program. We are pleased to receive a $5000 grant from the Fund for Early Childhood Care, Education and Development!

Practical knowledge tells us basic needs must be met before academic learning can take place. Good nutrition is vital for brain development and learning in the early childhood years and research has shown that food insecurity has a negative impact on children’s educational performance.

We are grateful to the Salina community for your support of early childhood education and the health of the children we serve. Kansas Head Start Association Region VII Head Start Association National Head Start Association USD 305
