Dear Students and Families;

   I already miss my students and I hope everyone is doing okay.  We had 9 out of 19 students in class on Monday.  We prepared to bring things home for the next two weeks, and enjoyed our time together; but not too closely!  Things sure changed quickly!  My wish is that everyone has what they need to get by for the near future.  Please let me know, or contact our Social Worker, Sheila Webb, if you need more support.  Food is available for pick up at various school locations.  Loring is not one of them.  I heard Patrick Henry High School is one.  Please check the Minneapolis Public School website for sites and times.  There is also workpackets available at these sites for students who did not get work picked up on Tuesday, before the school closed until April 6th.  If your child needs more work to do, please pick up the packet at these sites.  Remember that March 30th - April 3rd is  Spring Break.  Try to enjoy it!

   I will be contacting families over the next few days.  I would like to know up-to-date phone numbers, addresses, emails and if your child has access to the internet and an electronic device, and what kind of device.  If you can email this information to my email address, I would greatly appreciate it!  Please let me know what the best time would be to call your phone to talk to you and your child. My email is linda.farnell@mpls.k12.mn.us

   The next 2 weeks, teachers are tasked with creating plans to continue Distance Learning if we are not able to return to school on April 6th.  I will be updating this space occassionally, so please check in for further information
