Unplugged: NLRSD's Elementary Students Ditch Technology for Final Three Weeks of School
Unplugged: NLRSD's Elementary Students Ditch Technology for Final Three Weeks of School

Elementary parents,

We want to take a moment to thank you for your hard work in helping us maintain the learning process during this pandemic. We know this task was difficult and, at times, overwhelming. We appreciate your efforts.

NLRSD's elementary students will be going "unplugged" the last three weeks of school, beginning May 3. We are supplying 3 weeks of fun, engaging activities that will not require the use of technology. These activities will be focused around physical science, life science, and earth science. There will be one activity a day, along with a short reading passage and a math activity. Teachers will still meet virtually with students to discuss what they have discovered and investigated. 

Packet activities are divided into two grade level bands. One packet is for K-2 students and the other is for 3-5 students. These packets will be sent from teachers via Google classroom or paper packets can be picked up beginning 4/30 at your child's elementary school.

Again, we appreciate your help during this time to keep students engaged. We believe the last three weeks of school will be fun, engaging, and will provide a much-needed break from technology.

NLRSD Elementary students: Get ready to UNPLUG!

Sincerely,

Lori Smith
Executive Director of Elementary Curriculum, Assessment, and Accountability
