We are asking rural communities to share how COVID-19 is impacting them. Read below for a perspective from Emma Shaffer of Loyalton, CA. You can share yours here: http://bit.ly/iaartcovid
The Sierra Valley has major issues to internet and device access. We have really individualized learning based on what kind of connectivity students have at home. Materials are delivered to students every two weeks via the bus routes.
We have spirit days every Friday, and students can post pictures on our Facebook page.
I had pictures printed from when we were in the classroom and have been mailing them out to students every Friday.
In addition, our staff has rallied to show up (virtually on Zoom) to every board meeting to help save a much-needed intervention position for next year. I am so proud to be working with such a committed staff.
