At the Fox C-6 Board of Education Meeting on Tuesday evening, the board voted to move learning to 100% virtual beginning on Monday, November 23rd and continuing through December 4th. I want to take a moment to outline the schedule for the next two weeks and outline some grade level learning times.

- November 23rd and 24th all students will be learning virtually.

- November 25th - 29th the district is closed for Thanksgiving Holiday.

- November 30th - December 4th all students will be learning virtually.

- December 7th - Tentative date scheduled to return to hybrid learning model.

To help organize virtual learning our school has created a zoom schedule for our grade levels to follow on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of virtual learning. As always, the best point of contact is your child's teacher who will help organize who is to attend zoom meetings and assignments to complete. Please review the following schedule:

Meramec Wednesday Grade Level Zoom Times

This schedule will continue to be utilized for Wednesday’s during all virtual learning

For students that are currently enrolled in the Fox C-6 Virtual Academy, you will continue with your daily schedule as has been established during the school year. The above schedule is for students that are in the hybrid model moving to virtual due to school closure.

During the period of 100% distance learning, Fox C-6 will continue to offer FREE grab and go school meals to all children ages 18 and under. Meals will be available for pickup from 9:00 am until 11:00 am at all campuses on the following dates:

We ask that if possible, families fill out this grab and go meal request form so that the Food Service Department can anticipate the number of meals to prepare for each day.  Pre-registration is encouraged but not required.  

Nurse Dana Covid Contact: While the students are out for virtual learning over the next few weeks, it's still very important that families keep in contact with our nurse Dana Bost. Nurse Dana is responsible for tracking and updating our Covid-19 related illnesses or quarantines. Please make sure to contact Nurse Dana Bost by email in the event you have anything Covid-19 related.

The details of the fundraiser are posted on our Facebook page, but please hurry as the delivery date of the cookies and ice cream is Tuesday, November 24th. Use this LINK for more details.
