On Tuesday, January 19, Snow Learning Packets were sent home with all students P through 12 in the Meade County School District. Please check for this and put the packet in a safe place for future use. Your child will NOT need to do any of the work in the packet UNTIL the school district announces that it is “SNOW LEARNING DAY 1”. The earliest date we may use the packet will be Friday, Jan. 22ndbut only if there is no school on that day. When the announcement is made on the district One-Call, Meade County School District Facebook page, or the district website, it will clearly state whether or not it is a Snow Learning Day.
The quickest and safest way to receive accurate information regarding school closures or the implementation of Snow Learning Days is by checking our Facebook page, district website and One-Call information.
We are proud to announce that the Kentucky Department of Education has approved Meade County's plan for Non-Traditional Instruction during the 2015-16 school year. We will call these days “Snow Learning Days.” This plan will allow the opportunity for all Meade County students to be engaged in meaningful learning when conditions prevent schools from being in session. Students will have the opportunity for skill reinforcement, remediation, and enrichment through electronic or conventional paper activities. Assignments will be provided by your child’s teacher(s) and are expected to be turned in when school resumes.
When will we use Snow Learning days?
Our first three snow days of the year will be normal snow days. Students will be out of school with no work to make up and we will add these days on to the end of the school calendar. After that, you will know when we are using a Snow Learning Day because we will add that information to our announcement to call off school. The announcement will say, “There will be no school in Meade County today. Students will be expected to complete Snow Learning Day 1.” Each school’s Snow Learning plan will be tailored to their particular students. In early January, parents will receive a packet with more specific information. The amount of work that each child is expected to do will vary by school and by grade level, but it is certainly not our intention that students would be completing work for the entire duration of the normal school day.
What should parents do to be prepared?
Watch for the Snow Learning packet from your child’s school. You will receive a OneCall notification on the day that it is sent home.
Talk with your child about expectations for completion of his/her work on Snow Learning days make any necessary arrangements, such as speaking with your childcare provider to see if they will help complete the work with your student.
Understand that there will be paper and electronic options for student work in case of an outage or for those who do not have access to the Internet from home.
Please use this survey to ask questions or provide input about Snow Learning Days.
