Together, we can do this!

  • How you can Support E-Learning

    • Please provide a quiet learning environment as free from digital and personal distractions as possible.

    • Check the E-Learning template emailed by your child's teacher regarding learning/assignments, ensuring you are aware of deadlines, expectations, and norms.

    • Establish routines to structure the day-with expectations for time “in school”. A structured day is very helpful during “learning time”.  

    • Reach out to your child's teacher when you need help.

    • Communicate about your child's attendance and if he/she will be absent due to illness or other emergency by 9:00am. Please email Cassie Donatell at cdonatell@d49.org  to report any absences. Our attendance line will also be monitored for voicemails at (719)494-2906.

    • Look for school/district communications and respond when appropriate. Please stay alert for messaging through all of our channels - the D49 App, our social media feeds, and our district website, where you will find updates and reliable information regarding the in-person learning/building closure. District 49 communication and updates can be found all compiled in one place here - https://www.d49.org/site/Default.aspx?PageID=8477
