Flex Days Coming to NPUSC Schools
Beginning in the 2016-2017 school year, New Prairie United School Corporation will implement a virtual “eLearning” initiative for all students throughout the district. The goal of the initiative is to provide students with instruction that enhances the skills needed to succeed in a technological world. Students will have an opportunity to engage on both of these Flex Days via electronically planned instruction using the school’s iPad devices. All NPUSC students will take part in two scheduled Flex Days on Friday, September 16th and Friday, September 23rd from 9:00am-3:00pm. On these dates, students do not have to report to school for instruction, however Prairie View Elementary will be open for those students who do not have WIFI access or need instructional assistance. Prairie View Elementary will be open on both Friday, September 16th and Friday, September 23rd. There will be staff to assist all the students no matter their grade level (K-12th) or any special accommodations they may have. More information is being sent home regarding Flex Days.
Prairie View teachers are working with their students to prepare them for the upcoming Flex Days and eLearning opportunities. Specific information about your child’s classroom can be found on the teachers’ websites and weekly classroom newsletters. Our school will practice for the Flex Days on September 9th from 2:00 to 3:00. Be sure to talk to your student about this practice event to find out what activities he/she worked on during this time. We are all very excited about this new opportunity to continue learning when school is not in session.
Should you have additional questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher.
