School to Home Learning Resources
Cassville R-IV School District is committed to supporting our students and their families as we work through this challenging time together. A major change in routine can be stressful and oftentimes leads to fear and anxiety for many students. Practicing appropriate self-care is vitally important to a student’s emotional and mental health.
The Center for Disease Control stresses the importance of maintaining routines and activities during extended periods of social distancing. To reduce stress and anxiety, it is important to create a schedule for learning time and relaxing or fun family activities.
To support students and prevent a gap in learning due to the extended wellness break, Cassville Schools is providing several types of resources for parents which include online access and printed materials. Resources are provided to enhance or continue learning already achieved in the classroom. These activities are not required but are recommended to keep students strong mentally, physically and emotionally.
The Cassville R-IV School District has worked through a collaborative process to implement an Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI) plan to be utilized for up to 5 days when school is closed due to a health concern, inclement weather, flooding, exceptional emergency circumstances, or other natural disasters.
The goal of the AMI plan is to embed learning activities focused on reinforcement of critical learning standards, enrichment activities, or support for further skill development. Consistent practice and exposure to skills without interruption is the most effective way to ensure student understanding and mastery of content knowledge.
We will notify all parents/guardians, as we have in the past, via school outreach calls/text and social media postings in the event of school closures and use of AMI days.
