Teachers in RSU 71 continue to work on developing plans that will support continued education for our students at home over the next few weeks. 
These plans include both low tech (paper and pencil/minimal materials K-2) as well as high tech (websites, Google Classroom, Learning Applications/Grades 2-12) activities that reflect routines of teachers’ classrooms that can easily be followed by students at home.
Hard copy packets/plans are available school-by-school as needed.
Consistency, predictability, and personal responsibility (chores/helping out at home) are also key for our learners. Here is a suggested schedule to may help your household plan for learning at home days.
