SEEKONK —Superintendent Rich Drolet would like to share with the community Seekonk Public Schools’ remote learning plan in the event of inclement weather conditions this year.
In the event that winter weather conditions result in dangerous and unsafe travel conditions, the district will close school buildings and operate on a remote learning day model that will mimic the current Monday remote learning schedule.
School principals will send out reminders of the day’s remote learning schedules to staff, students and families in the morning should this happen any day(s) this school year.
By operating under this model, Seekonk Public Schools will not have to make up any snow days at the end of the school year according to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
If a major power outage occurs in the town as a result of inclement weather on a remote learning snow day, the district will not participate in remote learning and that day must be made up at the end of the school year in June.
“This will allow us to continue with our hybrid learning model despite inclement weather,” Superintendent Drolet said. “Any family experiencing problems on days designated as a remote learning day due to weather concerns should contact their school principal(s) so they can attempt to alleviate any issues that may arise.”
