STUDENT DAILY SCHEDULE: 

Students will have a daily schedule from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  There will be scheduled time blocks including a mix of live teaching sessions, recorded sessions, student work time, lunch, movement, small group breakout sessions, and specials (music, P.E., and library).  Specific schedules are still being finalized.

MEALS DURING CDL: 

 During CDL, we will serve free breakfast and free lunch to all who are enrolled in David Douglas schools. This will be a similar grab and go with breakfast and lunch served together between 12:00-1:00.  These may be picked up from Menlo Park (and all other  DDSD Schools) or from designated bus stops.  More information on this is coming soon.

CURRICULUM:

The elementary curriculum for this school year will be FuelEd,  a research-backed online curriculum that is designed to meet the needs of each student.  More information will be provided about this during family orientations.  

SCHOOL SUPPLIES:

We typically charge a $20.00 supply fee for each of our students.  We will not be charging parents during distance learning.  

Supply kits for each of our students will be made available during our soft start week of September 14. 

HAVE MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT COMPREHENSIVE DISTANCE LEARNING?  Available via the DDSD website is a document intended to answer some of your questions about CDL – the who, what, where, why and when of distance learning. Comprehensive Distance Learning is a new way of learning and teaching for students and staff, and we are all adapting as new information and challenges emerge.
