Remote Learning Recommendations During COVID-19 School Closures
Following the Governor’s announcement that schools will not re-open before May 4, 2020, The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education issued additional guidance regarding district and school remote learning plans.
With the extension of this closure, we believe students, families, educators, and staff in all communities will benefit from the clarity of statewide recommendations as educators and others continue to support their students during this crisis.
Soon, I will provide you with a summary of the short set of guiding principles that were derived from the state and revised to fit the needs of the Agawam community in regards to remote learning over the next several weeks.
Remote learning cannot replace students’ experiences in school communities with their teachers, administrators, and support staff. We must all pull together – parents and caregivers, students, the community, and of course, our educators and staff – to help students continue their learning over this extended period.
As a school district, Agawam Public Schools will take the direction from the state and work to put forth more specific guidelines according to our contexts, capacities, and needs.
We will continue to issue guidance to support districts and schools in their implementation of remote learning, including specific recommendations related to students with disabilities, English learners, and high school students.
We are all working hard in this effort and appreciate your continued feedback, support and understanding.

The staff at Granger School is committed to our vision of assuring that all children receive a safe, high quality, researched and evidence based instructional program. Our school rules specifically address bullying behaviors, provide for a safer school environment and give more time for instruction. We aim for all students to “hit the target” and apply the following school rules: Respect ourselves, Respect others, Respect learning and Respect the environment. We believe that by helping students practice good behavior, we build a school community where all students have an environment where they can succeed and grow. We know that when good behavior and good teaching come together, our students will excel in their learning.
