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.

Breakfast & Lunch

Mr. Bernier, Principal   Principal's Message

Our vision at Robinson Park School is to provide a safe and respectful environment that supports students to become independent learners. Our focus is to make sure that all students leave our school, meeting or exceeding all state standards with an emphasis on their ability to read, write, comprehend, and apply mathematical concepts and strategies.

To achieve this vision:

  • All students will adopt appropriate social skills and behavior as a way of life.
  • High standards of performance and behavior are the expectation for every student and staff member.
  • All students belong to all of us, (“not just the ones in my class.”)
  • Students will feel safe as risk-takers and understand that mistakes and failures are part of the learning process.
  • Students will acquire strong, higher level thinking skills and take responsibility for their own learning while continuously seeking out challenging opportunities.

The RPS Way will help us succeed in meeting our goals –
Be Responsible, Be Polite, and Be Safe!

Nicholas C. Bernier
Principal
