Dear Mohawk Jr/Sr. High School Parents,

With school physically closed for at least the next couple of weeks, Mohawk will be continuing to provide education virtually. We are putting pieces in place to help students continue to make academic progress while they cannot be in their classes. This may look different for different classes. Some may be daily work and readings or videos in the teacher’s Google Classroom, while others may require students to access Google Meet to be a part of the online class at a specific time of day with the teacher actually providing instruction digitally. Each teacher will post what their class will be doing in their Google Classroom with instructions for how to use Google Meet if necessary. The regular schedule is included below for your reference.

We need parent help to make sure your student is logging in to their school account, visiting their Google Classrooms, and checking their school email daily, just as if they were attending classes on campus. Attendance will be taken, just like at school. Students can email or contact their teacher through Google apps to get extra help on assignments if needed. Parents of students on IEPs will be contacted directly to make specific arrangements.

Students who needed technology to make this shift to virtual learning were issued a District chromebook computer on Thursday. Other students reported that they had a computer to use at home already. If your student is having tech issues accessing virtual classes, Google Classroom, or academic content, email our computer help desk at it@marcola.k12.or.us.

If you do not have internet access at home, please call the school on Monday to make alternate arrangements at 541-933-2512.

Additionally, for our students receiving free or reduced price breakfast and lunch, you or the student may pick up meals between 11am and 1pm on Monday and Wednesday in the cafetorium to take home. Please bring a backpack, box, or bag to haul the meals home. There will be no eating on campus. If you are unable to come to campus at that time, we can arrange meal delivery for most students. Please contact the school by 11 am on Monday, March 16 at 541-933-2512 if you need to arrange for delivery.

Thank you for your patience as we work through the kinks and get everyone up and running. In Marcola, we are proud to provide opportunities to meet the needs of every student.

Sincerely,

Stacey Whaley
Mohawk Jr./Sr. High School Principal

This is an official notice that Marcola School District will be closing and providing virtual instruction next week and beyond.

I am very proud of our staff and admin team to put systems in place in advance of any possible safety issues that may require our schools to close. Students have been informed about the possibility of a school closure, and all students in grades 6-12 know how to access their teacher via google classroom and google meets for face to face instruction. Elementary students and parents will also have access to their teacher through the internet via google classroom and other online applications. Parents of elementary students can pick up electronic devices and other resources for their children on Monday. Marcola School District will continue to provide our students (K-12 ) with breakfast and lunch meals as a pick up at the elementary school and/or delivery to those families who do not have transportation to pick up the meals. We are also providing support staff on campus to provide students services who need additional support to be successful in school. We will be sending out more updates on a daily basis. If you have concerns or questions please forward them to me.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the COVID -19 affect on our community, all FFA activities for the next week have been canceled. This includes Friday's forestry practice, water ecology class, community service at the community center, beef weigh-ins on Saturday, and tree trimming on Sunday. Additionally, 2020 State Convention has been canceled. State convention will occur virtually. There will be videos of sessions including some of the competitions. When I have a schedule, I will post times and links. Sad that we cannot attend, but now more people will be able to see what State Convention is all about. The Alumni Auction and Dinner has been postponed.

We will schedule a beef weigh-in and practice for our students. All steers will be tagged at the practice show on April 4th. Please note hoof trimming will also be available on this date. Everyone should be getting their animals for the next

Please ask students to check their email for updates and announcements. Thank you all for your continued support. I look forward to seeing everyone at the auction and dinner when we can reschedule.

Due to COVID-19 the Robotics State Tournament has been cancelled. We will not travel this weekend.

We will not be traveling to Nationals this year, either, and Worlds will most likely not happen this year.

This is very sad for all these kids who have worked so hard for this! We had a great season! Well done, Mohawk Robotics! You are truest a pleasure to work with!

Due to COVID - 19, Changes have been made to the Oregon State VEX Robotics Tournament.

Gold Division has been cancelled, and will not travel this weekend. There may be opportunity to gather at a later date for Gold Division competition, but this has not been planned.

Platinum Division will compete, but on Saturday only. The tournament will most likely be held at West Salem HS.

Middle School EDR will compete, but on Saturday only. The tournament will most likely be held at West Salem HS.

Only one teacher / coach per school is allowed to attend. No family, friends, or fans are allowed to attend this event.

Our middle school field setters will not be attending.

If Platinum and Middle School need to cancel, invitations to Worlds will go out based upon Skills Score rankings.

This is disappointing, but the right thing to do.

As of right now, travel to Nationals is still GO.
Travel to Worlds is still GO.
This status could change.

For questions, talk to Ms. Klein, or Mr. DeGeorge
