Burrillville Virtual/Distance Learning

Dear Callahan Families,

As you are all aware of, Governor Raimondo extended distance learning through the end of the school year. Unfortunately we will have many things that will be cancelled or done differently as we move into the end of our school year. More information will be forthcoming. Please be aware that when your child is online and your child’s microphone is on the class can hear anything being said in the vicinity of the child on the computer. This is even true when they have headphones on. Unfortunately some of our students have heard some colorful language during teaching time online. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Please be aware if there is anything I can do to help, please feel free to reach out to me and also continue to email your teacher as well. The teachers are always answering parent concerns. We are in this together!!

Student Essential Items in School- Please email your child’s teacher if he/she has left any valuable, important items (such as glasses) in the classroom that you need immediately. All school supplies such as binders, notebooks, pencils will be set aside until the fall. More information will follow.

Earth Day Poster Contest- Please see the attached about the upcoming Earth Day Poster Contest due by May 1st. The flyer has all of the information and contacts you will need for any questions you may have.

Virtual Spirit Week-The BHS Student council continues to come up with the week's theme! In order to participate, please check the weekly spirit week flyer (attached) and plan to dress for the day's theme or set aside time to do the activity. At some point during the day, take a photo of your child (or if they can have them) in their attire or them completing the activity. Finally, email the photo to brissetted@bsd-ri.net. Photos will be shared virtually to show our community spirit and continue to remind us that we are all in this together!

ATTENTION Daily Lunches- Lunch distribution in Burrillville will continue throughout distance learning. Bag lunches are being offered at Callahan daily from 11:00-12:00. Your child needs to be there to pick the lunch up. This is being done in front of the school of WLC. Please practice social distancing when coming to get lunches.
