Distance learning for U-CF

With the Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf declaring all schools to be shut do for two weeks, Unionville-Chadds Ford School District moved to Phase 3 of its Pandemic Action Plan. School Board directors voted to enact the plan during their plan work session last Monday.

As a result, distance learning begins Monday, March 16. Superintendent of Schools John Sanville issued the following:

“… Gov. Tom Wolf announced that all K-12 Pennsylvania schools will be closed for the next two weeks in an effort to safeguard students, staff, families and communities at large from the spread of COVID-19.

“We are officially transitioning to Phase 3 of our Pandemic Action Plan effective immediately and our buildings and campuses are closed. District buildings will remain closed from today through March 29, during which students and staff will participate in distance learning and instruction. Buildings are set to reopen on Monday, March 30, however, we will continue to monitor the situation and inform you of any changes.

“Beginning March 16, students are expected to participate in distance learning as directed by their teachers - this will be an A day in our learning cycle. Specifics regarding online learning at the secondary level will be shared with students and parents through email and Canvas. Elementary parents will receive information via email regarding the K-5 distance learning plan. We have a system in place to deliver learning materials to our K-5 families through the help of our transportation team. Principals will be sending out more specifics following this message about their school’s distance learning plans and how students and parents will receive assignments and materials.

“No one expected the school year to look like this - we find ourselves in uncharted waters. I am encouraged by the fact that our teachers spent today preparing to offer an educational experience with continuity over the next few weeks. While I’m confident in our staff and students - I am also realistic that we will have some challenges. We will do our best to address them as they come.

“Thank you all for your continued support.  We can only hope that things will improve with time and that we may begin to look at returning back to our normal practices.  Until then - please stay healthy and safe.”
