COVID-19 DISTRICT INFORMATION

Denison ISD

Denison ISD will be closed until at least Monday, April 6.  By Wednesday, April 1, we will reassess the data to determine whether it is safe for students and staff to return to our campuses.  A decision will be communicated that afternoon regarding whether schools will be re-opened on Monday, April 6.

​We realize that this situation is posing a significant burden on families, but please note that Denison ISD is doing everything possible to protect the health and well-being of our children and teachers.

​Learning plans are being designed for “in-home” student instruction beginning the week of March 23.  Denison ISD teachers will contact families personally to provide specific details.  This in-home instruction is critically important for your child, and we strongly encourage parents to partner with Denison ISD so that your child continues to grow academically. 

Continue to monitor the Denison ISD website on a daily basis for updates.  arabicmusik.com

Beginning Monday, March 23 lessons will be posted online for Pre-Kindergarten through 6th Grade.  Curriculum Coordinators and DISD Teachers have been working around the clock to prepare engaging lessons.  These lessons include YouTube Math and Science Videos (many produced by our very own teachers!) and fun ELAR lessons that can be applied to any book that the student is reading.  We have books that we will be donating to families who need them.

 

For those students who do not have Internet access, we have prepared packets that can be picked up at each elementary campus.  Again, if we discover a need to deliver these lessons, we are prepared to do so.

 

Our 7th – 12th Grade students will begin online instruction via Schoology, our online Learning Management System that houses all classes, including electives.  Curriculum Staff conducted a Zoom Meeting with teams from Scott Middle School and Denison High School to brainstorm resources that can be used to enhance our virtual instruction on Thursday of this week. 

 

Our Technology Department is researching devices with built-in hot spots that can be checked out to students who do not have Wi-Fi access.  Three models have been ordered.  Once we determine that a Denison ISD image can be loaded in order to make the machines CIPA compliant, we will process a larger order and get a plan in place to get these machines into the hands of students who need them.

 

Until that time, SMS and DHS will provide paper lessons for those students; however, we hope to have the Wi-Fi obstacle conquered in expedited fashion.

IN-HOME LEARNING DURING THE CLOSURE

IN-HOME LEARNING ACTIVITIES FOR DISD STUDENTS

Read Together

Read with your child, and talk about what was read.

If you have access to a smartphone or internet device, a neat reading website to check out is Storyline Online.

  Storyline Online is for children, parents, caregivers and educators worldwide. The SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s award-winning children’s literacy website, Storyline Online, streams videos featuring celebrated actors reading children’s books alongside creatively produced illustrations.

 

Play Board Games

Board games are great for promoting collaboration, inquiry, and critical thinking.

 

Writing Opportunities

Pose “Would you rather” questions to your scholar. Then, have them write a story about their response.

For example, ask:

  • Would you rather it be warm and raining or cold and snowing today? Or Would you rather be able to create a new holiday or create a new sport?

Then, your scholar could write about what he might do on a rainy or snowy day, or what holiday or sport she would create!

If you need help thinking of “Would You Rather” questions, here’s a website that has 200!

 

Do It Yourself Art Projects

Here’s a website with a ton of fun DIY art projects. Chances are you have many of the supplies at home to do some of these!

 

Do A Science Experiment Together

Here’s a website with 63 Science Experiments that use household items!

 

Cook Together

Having your child cook with you is an engaging way to review measurements and fractions. While following the recipe, point out the size of a teaspoon vs. a tablespoon, a 1/4 cup vs. a 1/2 cup, etc. Discuss the temperature of the oven and the number of minutes that it takes to complete the cooking process! This is math...in real life!

 

Take a Virtual Field Trip

Using this website, you and your child can take a virtual field trip to 30 interesting places around the world!

Visit the San Diego Zoo, Yellowstone National Park, the U.S. Space and Rocket Museum, the Great Wall of China…and many other interesting places!

 

Educational Apps via Clever

If you have access to the internet, remind your scholar that they have access to the educational apps that they use at school via the Clever portal.

  • Go to arabicmusik.com

  • Click on student links.

  • Then, click on Clever. (Students should know their logins.)
