Dynamic Distance Learning Update - November 13, 2020

We know you have questions regarding when we will be able to return to the hybrid in-person learning model. At the Tuesday, November 10 board meeting, our governing board voted to remain on full time dynamic distance learning through winter break. This means we will not have in-person learning prior to January 4. This decision was made in the best interest of our students, staff, and community’s health and safety.

The district will continue to monitor the Maricopa County Department of Public Health’s benchmark metrics on a weekly basis. The governing board will discuss a school reopening date of January 4 at their next regular meeting on December 8.

Please see the updates below for more information.

6th and 7th Grade Field Trips Postponed

The health and safety of our students, staff, and their families is always our highest priority and determines how we make decisions.

With the guidance of our governing board, leadership teams, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Maricopa Department of Public Health, the Littleton Elementary School District has made the decision to postpone the 6th-grade outdoor education and 7th-grade marine institute field trips until the 2021–2022 school year. For the entire message, please see the field trip flyers.

Technology Tip

Help keep student laptops in working order by keeping them clean! To clean the screen, use a cleaning solution that is no less than 70% isopropyl alcohol and a microfiber cloth. Spray the solution on the cloth, not directly on the screen. To clean the keyboard, use a Lysol wipe or the cleaning solution used for the screen. Do not use water or baby wipes to clean any part of the laptop.

Starting December 1, every Tuesday and Thursday, we will have buses making the rounds through the neighborhoods with free meal packages for those 18 and under.
