Leeds Parents and Students,
Official rollout of distance learning is today. Grades 7-12 please consistently check TEAMS for class assignments and due dates. Read assignment directions thoroughly and remember to select TURN IN after completion. Contact your teachers if you have questions.
All 7th through 12th grade students are required to respond to daily question every school day to be “present” for the day. If the student does not answer, they will be “absent” for the day. Each class has their own separate Microsoft Teams where this will happen. For example, for the 7th grade class, their daily question will be posted under assignments in the “Leeds 7th Grade Students” team. This will begin MONDAY, MARCH 30th!
MS Teams is using the students K12 email accounts. Students if you have forgotten passwords to your K12 email accounts you need to contact Mrs. Bubach to get your passwords reset. This information was sent out in a letter earlier this week.
A letter is being sent to each household with students in grades 7-12, going out on March 24th, with instructions for accessing Microsoft Teams and reset instructions for K12 email accounts. This is the way students will communicating with teachers for assignments.
With the school continuing to be closed, the Leeds School will start providing free breakfast and lunch to all kids between the ages one to eighteen in the community to be picked up daily. Kids must be present during meal pickup. Delivery may be possible. We would like to start Tuesday, March 24th but need to hear from our community members on how many people would be interested. Please call the school tomorrow, Friday, March 20th, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to express your interest as we need to plan. Further information will be sent out once we know the interest in our area. Thank you and stay healthy!

A teacher professional learning community will be focused on implementing research based best practices and meeting individual student needs. The school culture will be founded on teamwork, learning and cooperation. Curriculum, instruction and assessment will provide students with the knowledge and skills to be successful in the careers of their choice, and all students will be college or career ready when they graduate. An updated school facility and technology infrastructure will enable staff to leverage web based resources, adaptive software programs and artificial intelligence to maximize student learning.
