Latest Communication from MHTSD Superintendent

Dear Parents.

You are amazing. Your cooperation with the schools during this health related school closure is truly appreciated. You have confirmed that we are one district, one community. Together, we can accomplish so many great things for our children, our families, and our town. I ask you to practice social distancing while reaching out to loved ones and neighbors. If there is a need, we would like to be part of your support system. In addition to our expert staff, we have churches and other organizations prepared to support you and the school community.

Some important information regarding the weeks of 4/6, 4/13, 4/20.

Week of 4/6. We will continue distributing meals Monday, April 6, and Wednesday, April 8. Remote learning is in session April 6 to April 9. The district is honoring spring break April 10 to April 19.

Week of 4/13. Spring Break. No remote learning. No meal distribution. Students may be required to do work over break.

*We will provide information for families in need of meals during spring break in a future memo/flyer.

Week of 4/20. There continues to be uncertainty for the return to traditional schooling. The Governor stated he will make a statement on 4/17. Until that time, there is no decision on a return date. The school district will prepare to continue remote learning and meal distribution. We will also begin to prepare for a return to the school buildings. The decision rests with the Governor. I recommend that families continue to prepare for students to be home, learning remotely through April. You will receive more information as soon as we receive a notice from the Governor.

Sincerely,

Jim DiDonato

Superintendent

MHTSD REMOTE LEARNING

Dear Mount Holly Families,

Until further notice we will be implementing our remote learning plans! Our expectation is that students will continue participating in daily learning activities the duration of our schools being closed. This letter is to inform you of the expectations and procedures families should take to make this time most beneficial for your student.

District expectation for student participation is up to 4 hours of learning each day. Participation hours may vary based on specific circumstances. The recommended participation hours for students are:
Pre-school-Kindergarten, up to 2 hours
1st-2nd Grade, up to 3 hours
3rd-8th Grade, up to 4 hours

We understand that all students may access and complete their remote learning at different times of the day. Teachers will be available during the hours of 9:00-11:00 am. During this time, teachers are available to support students and their families.

Students in grades 2 to 8 will have Chromebooks. Learning will be directly through Google Classroom and teachers will provide instruction and assignments. Daily lesson plans will be posted on our district website, on the Remote Learning Page.

Students in grades Pre-K to 1 will have daily lesson plans posted on our district website, on the Remote Learning Page. These plans will reflect the student packets that are available for pick-up.

    3. Someone will call you back within 48 hours with information about how to pick up the work.

Remember, you will always be able to contact your student’s teachers via the usual ways of communication, other than school telephone numbers.

Ultimately, the safety of your family is most important. Take time to experience learning with your student and make moments they will never forget.


Stay Safe,

Mount Holly Township School District Administrative Team
