Should Summit Schools be closed by the recommendation of Linn County Public Health (LCPH), our faculty and administration will meet the week of March 23rd to formalize an online digital learning plan. Our staff will communicate with families via email with the particulars of this plan should it become necessary.

In order to allow for a potential digital learning plan to take place, we are asking students to take their books and materials home before leaving for Spring Break. Having the materials at home will be an important part of the plan should digital learning become necessary. Students that do not have access to a computer, tablet, or other internet capable device, will be allowed to checkout a school owned device at the discretion of their primary teacher. If your student is in need of such a device, please email the teacher directly before the end of school today, March 13th. If your child is in Shawna’s classroom, please request a device from Ms. Ashley. If you do not have home internet access, please make sure to bring this to your student’s teacher so that an alternative plan may be constructed.

Should digital learning become necessary, the school will be in contact with families by Thursday, March 19th. Communication from teachers will explain what the expectations and processes are.

Again, thank you for your patience through this process. If you have immediate questions on this plan, please contact your student’s teacher and/or Larisa Bickel.
