Hello Families,

Skyline Education Nutrition Services will provide an opportunity for families to drive through or walk up at several of our school sites to pick up meals for children between the ages of 1 and 18.  Children do not need to be an enrolled student to receive a free meal.  Just simply show up!  Children will receive both breakfast and lunch at the time they pick up their meal.  Meal distribution will be set up near the school gym entrance or at a Skyline school bus offsite.  Please stay in your car and meals will be passed through to the driver based on the number of children in the car.  If you are walking, please walk up and you will receive meals based on the number of children.  Per USDA regulations, children must be present for meals to be provided. 

Meals will be served March 23rd – April 10, Monday through Friday. 

We will post notification should this time be extended.

Each child will receive one breakfast meal and one lunch meal, for a total of two meals per child, daily.

The following schools and locations will be meal distribution sites:

Dear Skyline Families,

Governor Doug Ducey and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman announced statewide school closures through April 10.  As a result, our schools, school offices, district office, grounds and fields are closed to the public until further notice (except food service and curriculum pickup).  All activities, athletic games, practices, competitions, tryouts, clinics and events are canceled as well. For details and latest updates, please visit https://www.skylineschools.com/covid-19-updates/.  

We will continue to provide educational programs to our students. Please contact your homeroom teachers for assistance in accessing your grade level curriculum.  We offer a robust curriculum that will allow your child to continue education online.  We will be working on a program to loan Chromebooks to families in need by Monday March 30.  In the meantime, please work on packets provided by teachers.  

Remember, if your child has a gaming console, they should be able to access online curriculum through the browser.

Dear Skyline Families ,

Thank you so very much for being patient during this time as we identify the best ways to support you. First and foremost, I hope everyone is safe and in good health. Please stay safe and practice recommended protocols for social distancing and take steps to protect yourself by cleaning your hands often, avoid close contact, stay home if you are sick, cover coughs and sneezes and wear a mask if you are sick.

Your school Administrators and Teachers have been working diligently to establish a plan to provide food service and continuity of education. I am so thankful and impressed by the individual leadership of each person in this organization. They have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to our families.

We will begin offering food service to the community on March 23. You should have received direct information via our communication system, however, please check our website and Facebook for times and distribution centers to receive breakfast and lunch.

Skyline Education and its schools are committed to providing ALL families with ongoing education during this crisis. We will do this in two ways. Through providing online education and printed educational materials.

All links to online education will be available on our website. Parents and Teachers can go to www.skylineschools.com under “Resources” select “Access Online Learning.”  In “Access to Online Learning.”

The best method of receiving education is online. It is our mission to ensure ALL students have access to education anywhere at any time. Skyline will do everything within its power to ensure all students have access to a computer, internet and quality measurable content and resources. We understand that not all students will have access to a tablet, Chromebook or computer and internet. If you can purchase a Chromebook, please do so. If you do not have internet, please work with local providers as some are offering free resource. Administrators and Teachers will work with families on understanding each student’s needs and doing our best to support you. We are in the process of developing a plan to deploy Chromebooks to families in need. We are asking that all students who have access to resource, use their resources.

Currently, all Skyline students have logins and access to our online educational platform. Students in grades K-6 have access to our online platform Edgenuity Pathblazer. Students in grades 7-12 have access to Edgenuity. Beginning Monday or earlier, your student’s homeroom Teacher will reach out to ensure you are able to access our system. If you cannot, we will do everything to make that happen. In the meantime, please pick up printed materials. High School students will be able to earn credit through our online system if they complete the work. Please work with your teachers and Dean to ensure you are on the right track.

To access Pathblazer and Edgenuity students can utilize gaming consoles with browsers (PlayStation 3-4, Xbox One), Chromebooks, Desktop Computers, Laptops and iPads.  Android tablets will work for Edgenuity but not for Pathblazer.

PRINTED MATERIALS

Pick up times for printed educational materials will be in alignment with Food Service pick up times. Skyline Education will provide an opportunity for families to drive through or walk up at several of our school sites to pick up educational materials. Please stay in your car and packets will be passed through to the driver based on the grade of the student. If you are walking, please walk up and you will receive a packet in hand.

Packets will be provided Monday March 23rd and Tuesday March 24th.
We will post notification should this time be extended.

Dear Families,

I know it has been a roller coaster of news over the past week and hard to determine what was coming.  I assure you; your school leaders are here to support you through this time and have been working diligently over spring break on Pandemic Response, which will come in handy as we work to transition back to school in the coming weeks.  Today, Gov. Doug Ducey and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman jointly announced the closure of all Arizona public schools from March 16 to March 27.  Please click below to read the link to the press release from the Governor of Arizona and the Arizona Department of Education. https://azgovernor.gov/governor/news/2020/03/governor-doug-ducey-and-superintendent-kathy-hoffman-announce-closure-arizona

School administrators, teachers and other staff are currently working remotely refining academic plans to support students remotely as well as identifying the need to nutrition from our families.  As many of you already know we have robust online systems available that we use to educate our students.  As we assess the situation, we are coming up with opportunities to ensure resources are available to students so they may continue learning.  As a student or parent, there is nothing you need to do this week.  However, please be on the lookout for communication throughout this week and next week as we begin to establish options.      

It is important now more than ever to ensure you are focusing on safe social distancing and caring for your families.  It is important as a community that we do everything we can to support one another and support in preventing the spread of this virus.  This virus can have catastrophic results to many people in our society. 

– Avoid social gatherings involving groups of 10 or more.

– Limit visits to Bars, restaurants, food courts, gyms and other venues where groups of people congregate.

– Take steps to protect yourself by cleaning your hands often, avoid close contact, stay home if you are sick, cover coughs and sneezes and wear a mask if you are sick. 

Check the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html to view measures you can take to stay safe and see frequently asked questions. 

We will send more communication regarding education and nutrition in the coming days through our direct communication system as well as via social media and here on our website. 

PARENTS: Please fill out this Urgent Survey. Your participation is extremely important.
