Distance learning is instruction in which the student and teacher are in different locations. Distance learning involves interaction between student and teacher in a virtual environment. Teachers are in the process of receiving professional development for distance learning. As such we will encourage families to continue to utilize Evergreen's Continuous Learning Resources which can be found at https://bit.ly/ESDContLearn. While some teachers will soon be facilitating virtual meetings and posting specific classroom activities, we expect all students to be involved in formalized distance learning when we return from Spring Break on April 20, 2020. A brief overview of Evergreen's distance learning plan with resources can be found at https://bit.ly/ESDDistLearn.

O.B. Whaley is implementing a wonderful program for our students called Saturday Academy! Saturday Academy provides enrichment opportunities for all students while allowing our students to make-up missed days of attendance. Missed days of school also result in lost revenue to our schools. Saturday Academy allows us to recover lost learning as well as lost funding!

Rewards and incentives in schools play a powerful role in influencing student's food choices and life-‐long eating habits. It is the intent of the Child Nutrition Services Department to not only provide nutritious meals at breakfast and lunch service but to act as a resource in nutrition education for teachers and parents. CNS recommends that teachers and parents use celebrations, rewards and incentives that do not undermine the health of students and/or reinforce unhealthful eating habits. Non-‐food rewards and incentives should be used as the first choice to encourage positive behavior (game supplies, pencils, erasers, stickers and other small school supplies instead of food). If food is used as a reward or part of a celebration, healthy choices with appropriate portion sizes are required (see attachment for ideas). Likewise classroom parties should also be limited during the school.
