B-E Home Learning Supports

Dear B-ESD Staff and Families,

As we have learned that our closure will continue through the rest of the 2019-2020 school year, we are now shifting our instruction to a continuous learning model. The focus will be on essential learnings that will prepare our students to complete learning for this year and be ready to begin the next school year. We are hoping that most students and families will have access to online learning. You and your child(ren) will be hearing from your teachers with new learning experiences as well. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you need more support with at home learning.

Please check out our optional resources. You can select your child's grade from the menu on the left side of your page. These optional activites are not meant to take the place of what your teacher(s) will share, but instead help you with additional supports you might want to explore. Your teacher(s) will most likely mention many of these as well. We will continue to update these resources and add new ideas for you. Please continue to visit this website and our social media channels for updates on our learning opportunties.

Superintendent, Burlington-Edison School District
