Kit Carson Parents and Community,
March 30 is approaching fast and your professional educators are hard at work developing lesson plans that will include eLearning.
These lesson plans may include Zoom meetings, online curriculum, using our Microsoft 365 system, email, online programs, DOJO, and other needed materials to make this situation as smooth as possible.
Please remember these are new times for your teachers too. There will be some trial and error, but if doctors get to practice medicine, we can practice until we get it right too.
