Parent Distant Learning Info

The COVID-19 virus has disrupted daily life at many, if not all, levels. Families, work, provision, church, healthcare, child care, travel, entertainment, schooling are some of the areas affected. We don't always know what our students and their families [and us] are experiencing. Life is messy, plates are full, and patience and careful thought may be hard to access. Through it all, may we extend grace and forgiveness freely; it's OK to "let this one go.” During this time of uncertainty, the Crown Point Community School Corporation is committed to and concerned for the health and well-being of your children, our staff, and our community; we are in this together and will work with you to support your children.

Knowing learning from a distance is new to most of us; we will grow, we will get better, we will improve, and we will become more comfortable each day.  We may not be perfect right away and there will be some struggles; in the end I hope it will be an incredible learning experience for all of us.

The information that follows is presented to support you and your child in the transition to distance learning.
