Family Resources Packets by Grade Level

Student Learning Materials for Students in Grades K-8 

The district has created activities and resources for students in grades K-8 during school closures. These activities and resources do not take the place of regular classroom instruction but can be used for supplemental student learning at home. Assignments are not required nor graded. These activities are meant to provide optional opportunities for student learning while they are absent from school.  

Weekly learning packets are available every Wednesday (excluding April 1) through the following methods:

  • Packets may be accessed below.
  • Packets will be ready for pick up in the office at your child’s school.
  • Packets will be available for pick up at each meal delivery location.
