Parents of Clinton schools students can plan to receive guidelines and guidance on remote learning for kids as school is likely to be adjourned until the end of April after President Donald Trump extended the coronavirus social distancing guidelines to that time.
Superintendent of Clinton Schools Curt Nettles indicates the guidelines will be in the form of a packet on how to best continue education with kids while they are away from school. He stresses this will be about assessing growth on the concepts they have learned.
Many parents are still working, some from home and some essential workers are still heading to their sites. Nettles encourages establishing a good routine with your children and make sure they know when they are going to be tackling their school work.
Nettles encourages parents to do their best to keep kids focused while they are at home but he hopes to limit the amount of time and work for kids. He says at home time for kids is often associated with weekends, breaks and summer vacation.
Nettles is hoping to get those plans to parents by tonight (Monday evening) if not, parents can anticipate those by Tuesday.
