Teachers will hold daily office hours to help support students during this shift in learning. We are currently working on an alternative learning system given the Governor’s announcement to close schools for the remainder of the school year and will keep parents informed as we have more information. In the interim, please visit our Weekly Lessons page for wonderful resources to keep your students engaged and learning. 

LEARNING RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS

The District has compiled a list of learning resources for students - Alternative Learning Guidance

WEEKLY LESSONS FOR STUDENTS
Week Two is now available (4/6/20).  Each week our Curriculum team will put together lessons students can work on at home. While FWCS does not offer full eLearning to students, our goal is to support student learning by providing resources for parents.

DREAMBOX RESOURCES
As our communities work to contain the coronavirus outbreak, many schools are considering contingency plans for closures and distance learning, leaving teachers and parents to wonder, “what now?” 
DreamBox is committed to ensuring that learning continues despite these challenging circumstances, so your students don’t lose the academic gains they’ve made this year. 
We want to make you aware of the resources that you have available through DreamBox to sustain learning in a remote environment.
Additional resources available for current DreamBox customers
STUDENT & ADULT WELL-BEING RESOURCES
During the time that students are out of school they may feel anxiety around unknown factors the community is experiencing or adult emotions that they may not understand. Well-Being and Social Emotional Learning has been an essential part of every students’ day throughout this school year. 
Continuing the learning at home can greatly affect your student’s sense of calm during the extended time off. Below are resources you can use for both students and adults. 
MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT
Bowen Center is proud to partner with FWCS and we will continue to serve students during closures related to the COVID-19 response. If you are struggling with the gravity of this issue a bit but are not a current patient, you are covered under our Student Assistance Program. For current patients, we will be reaching out to you. If a student you are not a patient or have questions, please have your parents call (800) 342-5653.
