Remote Learning Bags- During the week of March 15 through March 20, students received Remote Learning Bags. The safety of our families, students, community members, and staff are a high priority. So, we are asking all families to continue to hold on to these bags until students are back in school.

The last day of school is June 5. This day will be a half day for all Claremont students. Please feel free to reach out to your child/ren’s teacher for more information.

A survey was sent to all parents/guardians and students on Friday, May 29. This survey came from SAU 6 and is different from the one you would have received from the State of NH. Please take a few moments to complete this survey. If you have not received the survey, please reach out to your child/ren's teacher. Your opinion is very important to us.

Fall of 2020 - As of today, we are unsure of what the fall schedule will look like for students. Superintendent Tempesta and I have and will continue to attend the School Transition Reopening and Redesign Taskforce (STRRT) meetings, hosted by the Department of Education. The taskforce plans to issue preliminary recommendations to the Governor on June 30. Please continue to check our website for updates. We will also be sending information home via email to all Claremont families.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support and the hard work you have been doing to assist with the education of our children.

Thank you and please stay healthy.

Donna Magoon, Assistant Superintendent

On April 16th, Governor Sununu directed that all schools will continue remote learning for the remainder of this school year, students will not be reporting back to school for the remainder of this year. Additionally, the NHIAA has also announce the cancellation of the spring sports season. These are truly challenging and uncertain times, but know that all of us at SAU 6 remain focused on educating your sons and daughters for the remainder of the school year and we will be keeping you updated on a weekly basis.

Supports for Parents/Guardians

The information below will inform you of Claremont School District Remote Learning Plan and how we plan on using digital learning as a way to maintain instruction and learning though the school’s physical closure.

Claremont School Districts Digital Remote Learning - This will begin on Monday, April 6.

We all recognize that distance learning cannot replicate the kind of learning experience that takes place in a dynamic and inspiring school environment where talented teachers, staff and motivated students engage through personal, daily contact and discussion.

However, when such an experience is not possible, there are many alternative and effective approaches available to our teachers in order to continue instruction and to engage students in meaningful learning.

Using Digital Remote Learning, teachers will be using different technological tools and websites. Our plan is to use programs our students are familiar with and have been using in the classroom. However, we may need to use additional resources to assist with the students educational needs. We will do our best to have online tutorials on the Parent Resource page found on the SAU 6 website under Remote Learning Resources. We will also have technical support available at

Students will be able to view these documents, complete the assignments, and receive a grade and feedback from their teacher.

We are here for you

As we know, you did not start the school year thinking, “I think I will homeschool my child this year.” We know and appreciate the adjustments you and your family will have to make moving forward. Making a shift to Digital Remote Learning is a process that we all have to make and will count on each other for support. You can continue to count on the support of your child’s teacher, principal, counselors, and other school staff members. On this website you will find helpful information as well as a link for Remote Learning Questions and Support. We want to assure you that we are still a team and will work through this together.

From home to a learning space

We understand that your home is not set up, and we won’t expect it to be, the same as a classroom environment. To assist your child with their learning process we have come up with ways you can help them be successful.

  1. Make a space for learning - we are not asking that you give up a room. All we ask is you give your child a space, a personal space in which they can call their desk. This space should be comfortable and away from in house distractions such as the television.

  1. Limit distraction - I know, this is not as easy as it sounds. By doing this you are allowing your child to focus on school and not their surroundings.

  1. Internet connections - Please remember there may be a time of day where multiple students are completing their assignments. Your child may find the internet connection running slow.

  1. School Routines - When a child is at school they have set routines, which is a big part of student learning. Allow your child to have a routine at home. Students work best when they have a consistent learning schedule to follow this includes snack time and recess. You have the flexibility to set up your child’s school routine to one that best fits your families needs.

Lesson timeframes will vary depending on the age/grade of the students

  • K and Grade 1: 15 minutes per subject (reading, writing, math, science or social studies & special) = for a maximum of 1 hour and 15 minutes.

  • Grades 2-3: 20 minutes per subject (reading, writing, math, science or social studies & special) = for a maximum of 1 hour and 40 minutes

  • Grades 4-5: 30 minutes per subject (reading, writing, math, science or social studies & special) = 2 hour and 30 minutes

  • Grades 6-12: 40 minutes per teacher (20 minutes of instruction followed by 20 minutes of practice) for a maximum of 3 hours & 20 minutes per day.

  1. Reminding your children this is not summer vacation - Even though this may feel like a summer break to students, we must not treat it as one. The teachers will keep to the Claremont School District Calendar and we ask that you do the same. It is important to remind your child their school grades will count. School assignments are not optional; they are required. If you are having a hard time explaining this to your child, reach out to your child’s teacher for assistance. He or she will be more than happy to explain the importance in the learning documents they have provided. Remember we are all here to support you.

  1. Teamwork - The teachers are all here to support you. Just as when your child was in school, we want to keep those same connections. Your student’s teacher is the first resource if they face learning difficulties. Teachers will make themselves available to speak with students and their parents directly as well as providing one-on-one support by Google Hangout, phone or through email. Special Education students will continue to receive support from special education. Elementary students will still have access to their Title One Teacher. All teachers will be available during regular school hours. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or support team at any time.

  1. Grading - Your child will continue to receive grades on all completed assignments. This is why it is important that your child complete all the assignments teachers have required. Your child will continue to receive a report card and grades will be entered on an official academic transcript. The academic calendar (end of 3rd quarter and beginning of 4th) - the end of the 3rd quarter will be April 17, Report cards are available on May 1, 4th quarter begins on April 27. We ask if you have any questions about the school calendar, end of quarters, or report cards you reach out to your child's school principal.

Special Education Services

The Student Service Department wants to reassure our families of children with individualized educational programs (IEPs) that their children’s learning needs will not go unmet during this period of time when we are implementing Digital Remote Instruction.

Our special educators and related service providers will continue to collaborate regularly with our regular education staff and our children’s families. Collaboration may be achieved through online communication and/or telephone calls.

Some students will have the opportunity to receive their services via teletherapy. Case managers and related service providers will be reaching out to you about this if they haven't already. Information regarding evaluations and the special education process will be sent out to families. IEP meetings and other special education meetings will continue to occur remotely. Again, your child's case manager will be reaching out to you with details. If you have additional questions please feel free to email Ben Nester, Director of Special Education at
