COVID-19 Closure: Home Learning

Home Learning Plan

During the mandatory school closure, students of Greenfield Exempted Village School District will transition from in-class learning to learning at home. Teachers have worked diligently to create instructional work packets for students to complete while at home. If parents or students have questions about the work provided, teachers may be reached by email at any time. Email addresses for all staff members are: [email protected] Teachers may also be reached by calling the school and leaving a voicemail at their extension. A list of extensions may be found on the district website under the staff tab, or by calling the building your student attends. 


Student Learning Expectations:

  • Paper packets of work to complete at home will be distributed on March 19 and 20, 2020 at off-campus locations. Supplies will be offered at the distribution sites on a first come, first serve basis. The packet of work consists of activities that review skills and concepts already learned this school year. 

  • Packets of work are available for download by clicking hereWe encourage all who are able to print packets of work at home to do so rather than coming to a distribution site. Students with an IEP must pick their individualized packets of work up from the distribution site, rather than downloading from the website.

  • Packets of work will be provided by each classroom teacher. Students who have multiple class periods, will receive a packet of work from each class period’s teacher.

  • To keep skills and concepts fresh in students’ minds, please set time aside every Monday - Friday for students to complete the packet of work. Completing all work in one or two days will not benefit the students’ retention of skills. 

  • All students are strongly encouraged to read self-selected reading material at least 30 minutes per day.

  • Completed work must be turned into each classroom teacher on April 6, 2020.

Instructional Work Distribution:

  • Packets of work may either be downloaded by clicking here or picked up in-person on Thursday, March 19 and Friday, March 20. Pick-up time is from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Locations for picking up packets of work are as follows:

  • Special Programs will continue to hold meetings with parents concerning the review of their student’s IEP or 504 if the annual review date falls between March 17 and April 3, 2020. Parents will be contacted by Special Programs to schedule a meeting date and time if a meeting is required. Meetings will take place by phone conference, not in-person.
