Winter Emergency Day Information

Dear ECASD Families,
 
Recently, the ECASD Board of Education approved a plan for how the district will approach winter emergency days this school year. Rather than having the day off, students will spend these days engaged in virtual learning. This will enable us to provide continuity for students while avoiding make-up days at the end of the school year.
 
You can view the district’s Winter Weather Plan HERE. In it, you will find information on how we will decide whether to declare a winter emergency day due to snow or cold temperatures. If this happens, we will communicate with you quickly via Skyward, the district website, social media, and the local news media. Food and Nutrition options for the day will be communicated separately as soon as possible following the winter emergency day announcement.
 
We have been able to move forward with this plan thanks largely to our 1:1 technology initiative, which we implemented earlier this school year. We are confident our students and staff are ready to quickly pivot between virtual and in-person instruction, including on days when inclement weather hits. Again, students should be prepared to learn virtually on these days.
 
We ask that you review this one-page document. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school office. 
 
As always, thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we continue to find ways to provide a high-quality educational experience for our students during the COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Mike Johnson
Superintendent
