HFFMCSD Remote Learning Support

  • To our community of students, leaders, teachers, staff, and families: In response to the continuous updates regarding the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, our district has developed plans for remote learning experiences for the purposes of continuity of education. Remote Instructional Support is a strategy for instructional supports to be deployed for extended time away from school. It is an opportunity to engage in learning activities remotely instead of attending school onsite when schools are closed for an extended period of time.  During this time, staff will provide instructional content, support materials and activities to all students primarily through digital resources. Print resources will be made available on an as needed basis. While we seek to provide our students with continuity of education, our primary goal is for our community to be safe and healthy.
