Dear Fifth Grade Parents:


I hope this email finds you safe and healthy. I know the following weeks will be challenging but we will get through this. I’ve tried my best to put together a distance learning plan which will let students keep up with our lessons and stay in touch with me.

With regard to ELA, Social Studies, and Religion (5-1) content…here is the plan:

Assignments will be posted daily on Google Classroom. The assignments will start on Monday, 3/16/20. These lessons will range from independent reading assignments, whether it be from the novel we are reading in ELA to scanned pages from the Social Studies textbook. At any rate, any materials needed will be included in the assignment. Since students have been using Google Classroom in Science class for a while, I don’t foresee them having any problems submitting their assignments. There will be a due date for each assignment, typically by the end of the school day, but students should always check the due date to be sure.

Work that is turned in to me will count toward the students’ homework grade and will be logged into Option C. If an assignment is missing, I will send an email home. However, please stress the importance of getting their assignments done on time.

In terms of communication, I will be readily available via email for office hours daily from    9am – 11am. However, if your child needs me at times throughout the school day, they can email me and I will be flexible and get back to them as soon as I can. Students can also communicate with me during daily office hours via Google Stream as well. Students are familiar with this feature.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at and I will do my best to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have.

If we work together and be patient, we will get through this.

Prayers and warm wishes,

Ms. Basile
