The Shonto Preparatory School needs to hear from parents and community members about the proposed academic calendar for the 2021-2022 school year. From March 2, 2021, through March 5, 2021, you may select your preference from two options below.
I hope this letter finds you and your family well and hope you are managing the challenging times we are currently living in. As you know, information about the COVID-19 pandemic changes daily and it impacts our lives. One of the most recent announcements from the Department of Dine Education is that we will remain in Distance Learning for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.
We will continue to provide instruction to students through the two learning platforms. Grades Kindergarten to 5 grade will be using Google Classroom and grades 6 through 12 grade will be utilizing Microsoft Teams. For those students that cannot access WIFI, instruction will continue to be provided through a USB flash drive. Daily attendance is still required during Distance Learning, please remember to check in daily with your student(s) teacher.
In addition to the buses providing WIFI access to our students, beginning Tuesday, February 16, 2021, the bus drivers will deliver breakfast and lunch along with USB flash drives and/or learning packets to our students. Students are able to turn in USB flash drives and/or their classwork to the bus drivers. Hot breakfast and lunch can also be picked up at Shonto Preparatory School’s cafeteria from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm daily. You can locate the bus schedules on the Shonto Prep school website. Breakfast and lunch menus will be posted as soon as they are finalized.
Thank you for your support and patience during these challenging times. We are very appreciative of all your hard work and dedication as parents/guardians in ensuring that your child(ren) are engaged in learning during this time.
If you should have any questions please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher, Principal or myself. We will be glad to assist you. Please be safe, practice social distancing and wear a mask.
