Remote Learning
Evergreen Families, Below are reminders about inclement weather and, if needed, remote learning.

Precautions
  • As colder weather approaches, please be sure your child is dressed for colder weather. Students will be required to be indoors when the temperature outside is 5° or lower (including a wind chill factor at or below 5°).
  • On very cold days, if your child typically walks to school, it is advised that you drive your child to school if at all possible. If your child will be walking to school, please make sure that he or she has the appropriate cold weather clothing. If you need assistance with winter clothing, please contact your school's office.
Building Closures
  • While some surrounding school districts may choose a delayed or late start, we do not intend to use "late starts" in the Evergreen School District due to the significant disruption to learning that occurs and the hardship it places on families. (Therefore, a surrounding school district may start two hours late, while the Evergreen School District may have a regular, full day of school.)
  • Building Closures are announced through the following methods:
  • Local radio and television stations
  • Email to the email address we have on file
  • Emergency phone call to the primary phone number we have on file
  • Notices posted on the District website and on District social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter)
Decisions regarding building closures are usually made by 6:00 a.m. each school day and are communicated to families and staff as soon as possible, usually no later than 6:15 a.m.

Remote Learning in the Event of Building Closure
If the decision is made to close school buildings for any reason, we will transition to a remote learning day (all students will learn from home remotely) in lieu of a make-up day at the end of the year.  
  • Teachers will reach out to students the morning of a school building closure via email, Google Classroom, and/or other platforms. If you do not have access to the internet and/or a device at home, please make sure your child's teacher is aware of this as soon as possible.
  • Students with a device and internet access should log in to their Google Classroom by 8:30 a.m.
  • Students will attend virtual classes, and teachers will provide online office hours for students.
  • Students without a device and internet access will complete other work assigned by the teacher.
  • Teachers will mark student attendance based on attendance in online class or, if necessary, student work completed.
We work very hard to avoid school building closures, as it is very difficult on students, families, and staff. Please know that the safety of our students and staff remains our top priority. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Happy Fall!

Best regards, Laurie
