Dear Students and Families,

   We sincerely hope all of you are well and staying safe. Your teachers have been working hard to provide you with learning opportunities at home. We encourage you to follow the lesson plans provided and enjoy reviewing skills you have mastered this year as well as new learning.

   The reading and writing assignments can be done as a family. Please use books you have at home, picture books online, or passages provided at your school. Students K-6 can work together using the same book.

   Math and Science lessons have fun videos to watch and activities to pick and choose from. Some videos feature DISD teachers you may recognize!

If you need a hard copy of materials posted online, they are available on your campus. Schools are open between the hours of 9:00am to noon.

   Your education is so important to us. We have supplied a daily schedule with suggested times for learning, eating, exercising and playing.

We miss you dearly and hope to see you soon.
