    Parents, Guardians & Students, 

    Starting on ________, Catasauqua Area School District Teachers will provide additional guidance and resources to engage students in review, reinforcement, and enrichment activities. These activities will focus on concepts taught earlier in the school year. Furthermore, these activities for these first two weeks (__/  -  /__) will be optional, ungraded, and will not introduce new learning. 


    Beginning on __________ (@ approximately _____am), all subject area teachers will be providing new material for learning.  Any of these assignments that begin on _________ and beyond are considered mandatory & will be graded towards your marking period _______ grade.  Each subject area teacher will provide students with no more than a total of 30 minutes worth of class work & instruction per day for each subject area.  Students will be allotted the entire week to complete all of that week's assignments.  Teachers will be posting the entire week's worth of assignments on Monday morning around 9am and these assignments will need to be submitted on Friday of that same week.  All teachers will be available upon request to hold video conference calls with students or parents for questions, remediation, etc.  It will be the students responsibility to seek out teacher assistance if they are struggling or confused with any of their assignments.
