Welcome to the Arlington Enrichment Home Page

Dear Arlington Parent/Guardian,

 

I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and well.  In response to the closure of Arlington Public Schools through May 1st, District curriculum leaders, coaches, and instructional staff have been working hard to prepare optional enrichment activities for all Arlington Public School students.  

The activities contained on this webpage are completely optional and can be used to maintain an educational routine and connection to school.  The goal of each activity is to give students an opportunity to practice skills and review previously taught content through the completion of different activities that include games, practice assessments, and projects.  Since the goal of the activities is to support prior lessons, the work completed by students will not be collected or graded by classroom teachers. We recommend that students spend 15-30 minutes per content area each day.  For example, students in kindergarten spend 15 mins on completing an activity for ELA, Math, Social Studies and Science for a total of one hour each day. If you have concerns about the ability of your child to access the grade level activities, please feel free to pull from other levels.  If you have specific accessibility concerns, we will be updating this page with more ideas from special educators, EL teachers, and related service providers throughout the time students are out of school. You can also click on the following link that will assist you with navigating the enrichment page (click here).    

All of the activities can be accessed through the internet using a device such as a Chromebook, Mac, iPad or PC. 

If you have any questions about any of the activities, please send me an email at rmacneal@arlington.k12.ma.us.   

Sincerely, 

Roderick MacNeal, Jr., Ed.D.

Assistant Superintendent 

 

A Message To Parents & Guardians About Digital Resources

 

Dear Parent or Guardian,

 

The Arlington Public Schools would like families to be aware that some of the resources being recommended are not approved for use in the Arlington Public Schools. There are a variety of reasons for this, but they all relate to the protection of students’ personally identifiable information (PII). We have published our digital resources list at the Arlington Public Schools website on the Digital Learning page and encourage you to use this list if you have questions about a particular tool. While we do not endorse the use of tools that aren’t approved, we understand that there may be resources or platforms that students want to use in spite of not having a data privacy contract from the vendor. We hope that sharing this information helps you make informed decisions about the variety of digital learning tools available to students.

Susan Bisson

Director of Digital Learning
