Learning Resources for Families
During the COVID-19 School Buildings Closure


April 10, 2020

Greetings Ferndale Families,

We hope you are all well and keeping busy. Every teacher looks forward to the time that we are back in class again, learning and having fun together.  Until that time, we will be putting together a weekly packet of new learning opportunities. It is our goal to provide meaningful tasks to allow your child to continue learning grade level standards, through the process of “distance-learning.”  

Using the same schedule format that we shared before, we have created new learning packets for the week of April 13-17 with an increased expectation that your child completes the work. Please encourage them to do their best and complete all activities. These are connected to the online links and resources provided by the grade level team, if you’re able to access them. If not, just have your child complete the hard copy of the learning plan provided. 

By Monday, April 13, every elementary student in Ferndale should receive a paper copy of the grade level learning plan in the mail. Beginning Monday*, all of the resources will be accessible online at Certain grade level packets contain links to supplementary video lessons that are available online...(Introduction Overview Letter continues and available in full at link below)

Dear Parents,

First, let me tell you how much we miss seeing your students. This social distancing is hard on all of us, but we know it is probably hardest of all for teenagers. We hope you and your children are doing well and staying healthy.

The purpose of this letter is to let you know about the kind of learning work and support your children can expect to receive from this point forward. During the past several weeks, our advisory teachers have reached out to connect with your students, find out how they are doing, provide them with some general learning suggestions (like reading, journaling, and engaging in physical activity), encourage them to set weekly goals, and assess whether they are able to access the internet for future learning.

Beginning no later than Monday, April 13, your students are going to start receiving weekly learning plans from each of their teachers. That means each middle school student will receive six different assignments from six teachers; and each high school student will receive eight different assignments from eight teachers. If your student has access to the internet, those assignments will be delivered via email. If your student does not have access to the internet, we will provide paper copies of the assignments at the three secondary schools on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. (If neither of these options works for you, please call us at (360) 383 9210, and we will work out another method of delivery.)...(Letter continues and available in full at links below)
