Luther School Directions

    Dear Hoyle School Grade 2 Families,

    I would like to begin to welcome you to the Luther School community.   The Luther School faculty and I are excited to get to know you and your child and we will be working hard to support your transition to Luther School.  This certainly has been a very different school year as we have all had to adapt to many changes.  At the end of the school year, we typically have grade 2 students visit Luther School and hold a parent information night.  We are currently putting in place alternate plans to help your children successfully transition to Luther School.  We feel it is important to provide our new students with an opportunity to meet their teacher, so on Wednesday, June 17 at approximately 9:00 a.m., you will be receiving an email from your child’s grade 3 homeroom teacher welcoming your child to their classroom.  This email will contain information on how to access a Zoom meeting that will take place on Thursday, June 18 from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.  We are notifying you of this date and time in advance in hopes that you will be able to make arrangements to participate in this virtual meeting. 

    The plan for schools to return to school has not been finalized by the State of Massachusetts and as such, our teachers may not be able to answer specific questions about next school year in regards to the safety measures that will be in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Our focus for these Zoom meetings will be for teachers to introduce themselves to students, allow students to introduce themselves to their new teacher, review information about Grade 3, share our plans for summer reading, and allow time for questions from families.

    I am planning to provide additional transitional activities for our incoming grade 3 students as we receive more clarity on how we will be moving forward with the 2020-2021 School Year.

    I would encourage all families new to Luther School to consider following Luther School on Twitter to see many of the great things happening at Luther School.  Twitter is free to use and only takes a couple minutes to create an account.  You can access our school Twitter account by following @LutherSchool after you have created your account.

    Dear Luther School community,

    During the month of June, Luther School will begin to shift how we conduct our remote learning to help increase student engagement and bring a positive ending to the school year.  

    Week 1: June 1-5

    The focus of this week will be for teachers and students to bring closure to their current units of study.  The week will allow for reading classes to finish reading their current books, writing classes to make any final improvements to their writing assignments, and opportunities to complete unfinished activities or any makeup work.

    Week 2: June 8-12 

    The focus of this week will be for students to turn off their computers, video games, cell phones, and other electronics.  Luther School will be providing families in all grades with engaging activities that promote exercise, reading, being outdoors, spending time with family, and helping their community.  Specific suggestions for activities are found in the attached Calendar of Events.  The order of activities may need to be switched depending on weather.

    Week 3: June 15-19

    The focus of this week will be on bringing closure to this school year.  Students will be participating in transition activities during our virtual step-up day.  There will be opportunities to participate in their favorite specials activities, participate in Google Meets with their peers and teachers to check-in and say goodbye as well as viewing our Grade 5 Virtual Promotion Ceremony.  Please see the attached Calendar of Events to see the specific dates for these activities and events.

    Thank you for your continued support as we work to provide our students and families with a positive and engaging ending to this school year.

    Sincerely,

    Sean Scanlon

    Dear Luther School community,

    Swansea Public Schools will remain closed through the end of the 2019-2020 school year per order of Governor Baker.

    Please see below for a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document from Superintendent Robidoux.  Luther School teachers are currently conducting remote learning through their Google Classrooms.  If you have questions about the remote learning activities please email the teacher directly.  We appreciate your patience while teachers work to develop meaningful remote learning activities that will support student learning.
