For Planning Purposes Parents/Guardians, It has been and will continue to be Spiro Public Schools' mission to bring the highest quality educational experience to all our students. Up to this point, our goal has been to use face-to-face Fridays in the spring to make up any days missed. The reasoning for that was our concerns with “virtual instruction” being age effective, being academically rich, social development, teacher availability for guidance, and connectivity when using Chromebooks. Issues we navigated during the pandemic of spring 2020. All justifiable concerns. But through recent conversations with staff, patrons, and community stakeholders it has been brought to our attention that many people are currently utilizing these Fridays for scheduling doctor/dental appointments, counseling sessions, older students' additional work hours, and other extracurricular activities that are hard to reschedule or cancel. This is what we have encouraged and hoped would happen since the modified spring calendar was implemented. We now find ourselves in a position to meet both quality academics and be respectful of scheduling issues due to unpredictable weather. Spiro Public Schools will pilot a new program called “Experiential Project-Based Learning” to be used in homes on Friday, March 4th, and Friday, March 11th in place of face-to-face instruction. An informational sheet will be sent home with your student Monday, February 28th with greater details addressing what we believe will be the majority of questions and concerns. If after you receive this information sheet you have questions, please feel free to contact your building principal. We feel confident we have addressed the majority of concerns with virtual learning, but this is a new pilot program and we value your input in making this program a quality/effective option in addressing our student's needs. Thank you for your support and understanding. Sincerely, Superintendent Richard Haynes

As is our plan for missed days we will make up this day with regular class instruction the following week's Friday, February 11th. No virtual instruction will be used for this missed day. Let your kids make snow ice cream, get with friends and find the best sledding hill, and be ok with piles of clothes at the front door as they travel in and out every 20 minutes! Please be safe, and we look forward to getting them back next Monday. Sincerely, -- Richard Haynes Spiro Schools Superintendent
