Dear Dover Middle School Parents/Guardians:

I hope that you and your children are safe and healthy as we navigate our way through this unprecedented and unsettling time. Many of you are eager to learn more about our district's plan and next steps. I thank you for your patience and flexibility as we determine the best course of action for our students.

As you have read in communication sent out by Mr. Tierney, New York State schools were ordered to close for the next two weeks. Schools were also advised to exhaust their remaining eligible snow days and vacation days. As a result, students and teachers are now on an early "spring break". Plans are being made to set up "distance learning" when the spring break period ends. There is a tentative plan to "go live" with distance learning starting on March 31st.

In the meantime, Dover Middle School teachers have been providing me with links to resources that students can access during the next two weeks. These links will provide opportunities for review and reinforcement during the spring break period. Again, the tentative plan is for teachers to begin posting new lessons and material on March 31st. The document containing these links/resources will be posted on the Dover Middle School website later today; communication will be sent out when it is ready.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Thank you and stay healthy,

Christopher O'Connor

Principal

Dover Middle School
