• Emergency Education Plan (Home Instructional Distance Learning) Information


    Dear WAS Community,


    The Emergency Education Plan (Home Instructional Distance Learning) will begin on Monday, March 16th. Below you will find important information regarding the plan. 

    Your child’s learning plan could include paper-based materials, projects, and/or online activities/assignments. At the elementary level (PreK-5), each teacher has put together a “to go bag” with materials that will allow your child to access their learning from home. On Monday, March 16, 2020 please come to the building (8:00 AM - 8:00 PM) to pick up these supplies. At the Middle School level each teacher will be posting the assignments online either through Google Classroom or their website. For more detailed information of the Cranford Public Schools Distance Learning Expectations, please click HERE. 

    A key piece to ensuring that distance learning is a success, is to maintain open lines of communication. All staff will be available to assist you and your child throughout the school closure period. To assist in this process, staff members will have designated office hours where they will be available daily to answer questions and/or concerns. In addition, your teacher will contact you directly letting you know the other avenues in which they will communicate (Ex: Google Classroom, Website, Email). Please click HERE for more specific information.

    In addition, your family will be receiving phone calls from Cranford Public School Staff Members to check-in to see if any further support is needed. Please be aware that this call may come as a blocked number as our staff members will be calling from their personal cell phones.
