    Curriculum and Enrichments

    We encourage students and their families to stay engaged academically during this time off. We encourage parents to read with their pre-K and elementary school children. Many teachers are also sending workbooks, printed materials, and grade-appropriate readers for their students to use during the break.


    Printed instructional resources for language arts and mathematics will be available to students and families at the schools sites where we will be providing meals to children. These printed resources will be distributed on Tuesday, March 17 and Thursday, March 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. We encourage students and families to take advantage of these resources.


    Digital learning applications and websites are valuable resources to use during this time. We are creating a “Virtual Learning Opportunities” portal that will be made available at pps.net/coronavirus. PPS staff will continue to update the portal throughout our closure.
