    Hello Sullivan Families,

     I hope you are well and had some sort of chance to enjoy some of the spring weather today. A refreshing slice of normalcy in an otherwise abnormal world. We remain appreciative and you and your efforts to create a formal “school-like” learning environment daily now on top of everything else you do. “It ain’t easy!” Know that we know that it is not easy and will continue our efforts to work with you and the kids to develop and maintain an optimal remote learning experience. WE ARE WITH YOU!

     The Phase II Remote Learning Experience is now beginning to take shape as LPS administration and staff have been working extremely hard to put it in place based on recommendations made by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. While it doesn’t take the place of traditional schooling and it absolutely remains a work in progress, it is a start. From “enrichment” (Phase I) to “expectation” (Phase II), your child’s teacher(s) will now be formally sharing with students expectations of studies/work to be done during the closure and will support the students (and parents) to help fulfill these expectations. 

     LPS will be sending out to parents the Remote Learning Outline for Families and it will be posted on line. In this outline, you will find information on what the typical “Remote Learning” experience will look like. Below is a summary of what to expect at the Sullivan:

    1. DAILY SCHEDULE: Below is the daily Remote Learning Daily Schedule for students for the various content areas. As all family schedules are different, parents can decide when different content areas occur during the day. You decide on how the schedule plays out in your house. 

    Grades 5 & 6

    Content

    Time Suggestions

    Reading 

    (Read books, watch books read aloud, listen to a book, complete online learning)

    At least 30 minutes daily 

    (Could be about science, social studies, etc)

    Writing or Word Work or Vocabulary

    20-30 minutes daily

    Math

    45 minutes daily

    Science

    25 minutes daily

    Social Studies

    25 minutes daily

    Arts, Physical Education, or 

    Social Emotional Learning

    30 minutes daily

     Grades 7 & 8 

    Content

    Time Suggestions

    Independent Reading 

    (Read books, watch books read aloud, 

    listen to a book)

    At least 20 minutes daily 

    (Could be about science, social studies, etc)

    ELA

    45 minutes daily

    Math

    45 minutes daily

    Science

    45 minutes daily

    Social Studies

    45 minutes daily

    Arts, Physical Education, or 

    Social Emotional Learning

    30 minutes daily

    1. REMOTE INSTRUCTION: Many teachers have already been in regular communications with families and the kids during the Phase (The “Enrichment” Phase). By early next week, your child’s teacher will be reaching out to schedule time to check in with students and discuss your child’s remote learning plan and support options therein. Stay tuned!

     

    1. WEEKLY ASSIGNMENTS: 
    • Each week students will receive activities that correspond with remote learning. These will vary across content areas and are meant to be done independently by children for the most part. 
    • The activities will follow the content and curriculum of Lowell Public Schools. 
    • Students will be asked to submit work from the various activities. 
    • If students need support or clarification on an activity assigned, they can email the teacher or ask for help using the communication method that your child’s teacher chooses. 
    • For students receiving special education services, activities will be modified accordingly through the collaboration between classroom and special education teachers. 
    1. VIRTUAL MEETING WITH STUDENTS: 
    • During the week, teachers will be available for virtual meetings to support students and parents and will try to accommodate student (and parent) schedules.  Teachers will contact you regarding the details for these virtual meetings. 
    • For students receiving pull-out special education services, special education service providers will have a different set of times available to connect with the students whom they service, as appropriate. 
    1. SUBMITTING WORK: 
    • Students will submit work by the appropriate deadlines established by the teachers using various on-line platforms as explained by the teacher.  
    • Necessary modifications or accommodations for students who receive special education services to submit work (e.g. extended time, etc.) will be communicated. 
    1. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: 
    • Again, this new Phase II will take a few days to get underway. You may continue to access “At Home Learning” packets that have been developed for Weeks 1-4 on the LPS At Home Learning Website. Additional resources will continue to be updated on this page. 
    • During this time of Remote Learning, courses are graded as credit or no-credit, and traditional grading will not occur. More information on grading will be forthcoming.
    • At the Sullivan, again our teachers will be reaching out to students by early next week to explain “expectations” to their students. WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOUR CHILD AND YOU. If you have a question for any staff at the Sullivan, you can email them accordingly. The Sullivan staff email directory is located on the Sullivan web page at: https://www.lowell.k12.ma.us/domain/638
    • For students who do not have computer access at home, please contact your child’s teacher directly. The school district will provide ONE (1) loaner computer per household only for those household who do not have a computer. Most who fall into this category have already been contact by your child’s teacher and a pick up time is being arranged.  If this is not the case, then please contact them immediately. 
    • LPS Grab and Go Meal Service. Please see the District website https://www.lowell.k12.ma.us/Page/3776 for food pick up options throughout the city. 
    • Support Staff. The Sullivan clerk, social workers (Mr. Thompson, Ms. Brooks and Ms. Dervartanian) guidance (Ms. Stappen), administration (Mr. Banks and Dr. Foster) will be available to assist/support students (and parents) during the closure. More information on what this will look like will be forthcoming. If you need to communicate with any of them, please visit the Sullivan staff email directory. 
    • School Climate Activities: Be on the lookout for upcoming “virtual” Sullivan extra curricular activites. Visit our FB page for Sullivan Staff “We miss you!” photos…..And be on the look out for a Sullivan “Virtual” Talent Show. Stay tuned!

    I think that is it for now. I will continue to inform you on changes during these unpredictable and fluid times. Take care.

    Hi Sullivan Families,

    I hope you are all faring well during these uncertain times. Know that the Sullivan and LPS staff are working hard to connect and support families while we await direction on how to proceed. We miss the kids and you! That said, we now are beginning to get more direction from DESE and the District on what this will all be looking like for this second (more formal and direct) phase of “Remote Learning” during the closures. A few items to share about this upcoming phase:

    1. ALL students should have access to a computer and internet services at home. Students without this access will be given/loaned a computer/service in the upcoming days-We’ll be reaching out. (If you do not have a computer/internet access at home, please reach out to your teacher as soon as possible.) 
    2. Students will be expected to engage in work about half the time (3-3.5 hours a day) of a traditional school day. 
    3. Middle school work will reinforce the skills and concepts they have learned, as well as engage in new project-based experiences and online learning based on their learning needs.
    4. Teachers will direct student learning based on the district-provided online curriculum, supplemented with online videos and/or other materials, as needed. 

    MORE INFORMATION ON WHAT THIS WILL LOOK LIKE FOR YOUR CHILD WILL BE FORTHCOMING THIS WEEK. It will be a work in progress. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime, a few items to consider: 

    • Teachers will continue to reach out to students/families to communicate and offer support. Students should continue to access school and district-wide resources via school and district websites:  https://www.lowell.k12.ma.us/Domain/15 
    • Check your student school email regularly. (A video tutorial is uploaded onto the school website on how to access the school email from home.)  Several teachers will also be reaching out on their respective platforms: Class Dojo; Schoology; Class Tag. STAY CONNECTED. 
    • Be on the look out for Sullivan Staff messages to the kids on the Sullivan website and facebook pages:)

     Stay safe and well.

    HI Everyone,

    GREAT JOB ON THE SULLIVAN ZOOM ROOMS TODAY!!! It wasn’t able to attend the grade 5 Zoom Room unfortunately, but attended the grade 6, 7 and 8 Zooms. It was wonderful to see everybody. (I’ll catch up to the fifth grade next time.) This is our first “go around” at this so we will be tweaking it some in the future. Expect more communications by individual teachers students/classrooms as well as grade/school wide games and activities. More information will be forthcoming. A couple of points to remember for students:

    • Don’t forget to check the school and district website https://www.lowell.k12.ma.us/Domain/15 for academic enrichment activities. It is of the utmost importance to keep the mind sharp during this time. More information about student academic expectations in the future will be forthcoming.
    • STAY CONNECTED. Check your student school email regularly. (A video tutorial will be uploaded onto the school website on how to access the school email from home. Stay tuned.) Several teachers will also be reaching out on their respective platforms: Class Dojo; Schoology; Class Tag; Remind; Google Classroom; etc.; etc. We are also in the midst of planning “virtual” extra curricular activities. Stay tuned….
    • When on these Sullivan school community get togethers (Like Zoom, but others as well) school rules apply. Proper language is expected and inappropriate language will not be tolerated. Infractions could result in being kicked out of the session and parent follow-up.
    • Spread the word to your friends/classmates who could not attend today. We want to be connecting with ALL SULLIVAN STUDENTS and are currently working to get up-to-date contact information for the entire school community. Central Office is working on a plan to ensure all LPS students have computer/Internet access from home. Stay tuned….

     I think that is it for now. Thank you to all the students and staff involved in today’s Zoom. It was a lot of fun. Stay well.

    Hello Sullivan Community. 

    I hope you are all doing OK. Hard to believe this all began for us on Friday March 13th…….Two weeks ago. It seems so long ago. How the world has changed since then. I sincerely hope you and your family are doing well.

    Things remain “evolving” as we proceed to the unknown. I know Sullivan staff have been reaching out in various ways to the kids and families. We will continue to keep up the connection. I was even able to attend a Zoom session by Mr. Buckley and the kids this past Friday. They sounded great and brought a smile to a weary face. Life and learning is going on in this strange new world. Thank you parents and staff for your times and efforts to make it so….

    As we proceed from here, know that the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has just issued some guidance on “remote learning” to school districts while schools are closed until May 4th. We will be reviewing this guidance in the coming days and developing a learning plan that engages students in meaningful and productive learning opportunities in the coming days. In addition, LPS is currently assessing students' access to technological devices, such as computers and iPads, and internet connectivity as we develop a virtual learning plan. More information will be provided to students and families this week on the district's learning program and implementation plan. Stay tuned. 

    For now, the following remain resources for Sulivan students and families: 

    In the grade level “Zoom Rooms,” grade level teachers will connect, check in, and chat.  Teachers have missed you and are excited to be able to see you all virtually! Date times, and zoom meeting links are above.  You can also find the information on the website, the Facebook page, and teachers will be sharing the log in link in google classroom, class dojo, Schoology, etc. Monday afternoon. Don’t forget to log on to zoom.us and sign into your grade level meeting! We are looking forward to seeing you!

A list of sites and lunch distribution times are posted on the Lowell Public Schools website. Again, these enrichment packets and online materials are resources to support you as you continue to engage students in learning from home.

    Hello Sullivan Community. 

    I hope you are all doing well. school and district personnel are working tirelessly behind the scenes to organize as much as possible an appropriate and coordinated school/district response to this crisis. There is a lot (be it on-line learning resources, student food distribution, building cleaning, video conferencing, etc., etc.), but the work IS absolutely happening. 

    Please visit the district website Lowell Public Schools website for information related to student meals and on-line learning resources. Just a few NEW items to share at this point. 

    I’ll continue to share important NEW information as appropriate both through my Sunday messages and during the week as needed. We are focusing now on best ways to keep a strong school/home “connection” during these difficult times. It is of utmost importance for us (school and home) to be connected during this period of “social  isolation.” We may be “isolated,” but we are not alone. Social media often gets a bad rap by me in this space…..I see it being a positive difference maker for maintaining “connection” as we proceed from here. We are working on that this week. Stay tuned….

    Take care.

    Hello Sullivan Community. 

    I hope you are faring well in these unprecedented times. It is hard to imagine it has only been a week. It seems like an eternity. As we try to adjust to all of the ever changing facets of this new normal, please know the Sullivan staff and I are thinking about the kids, you and your families and sincerely hope that everyone is healthy and doing well. Also please know that school and district personnel are working tirelessly behind the scenes to organize as much as possible an appropriate and coordinated school/district response to this crisis. There is a lot (be it on-line learning resources, student food distribution, building cleaning, video conferencing, etc., etc.), but the work IS absolutely happening. 

    The one thing I can say with certainty at this point is the one thing that is constant in all this is “change”…...sometimes daily, sometimes hourly. I appreciate your continued patience and support during these trying times. I will endeavor to get the messages out as appropriate in a timely fashion. and that I as your principal will continue my Sunday evening messages to update you, but also I will be sharing time-sensitive important information during the week as needed. 

    The one thing I have learned through my short time at the Sullivan is we can depend on each other for support to get us through. We will make it through this together. Stay Lowell/Sullivan Strong!

    Please read below for IMPORTANT LPS INFORMATION from the Superintendent: During this time away from school, we know many families are looking for ways to continue learning at home.

    Posted by Edward Foster on 3/15/2020 3:30:00 PM

    Dear Sullivan Community, 

    What strange times we are in….. I hope you and your family are well and healthy as we begin these next few weeks (3/16-3/27) of “social distancing.” As we as a community/society go through these next few weeks and go into the unknown, there is a lot of uncertainty and fluidity not just in terms of schools but in many areas. I take solace in the fact that we are all going through it together and can rely on one another. We are all going through this together. Patience and calmness are absolute virtues. 

    For me, as your principal and part of a district leadership team, I’ll be working over these next two weeks on school related items starting off with the Sullivan/LPS COVID-19 response/decisions (food distribution, academic packets for the kids, future school events decisions, etc., etc.) and then onto regular school items this time of year. Not sure where I’ll be doing this work at this point other than I’m starting the work week remotely. Please know that during this time, I’ll be attempting to share as much information as possible as I find in times like these the “not knowing” is the worst and causes the most angst. I’ll do this by my usual Sunday eventing calls/emails but also via email when appropriate/prudent. Feel free to email me if you have questions/concerns. While I can’t say that I know all the answers, it is good to know the questions and I’ll certainly endeavour to find the answers. A few IMPORTANT NOTES for this upcoming week: 

    1. STUDENT ACADEMIC TIME/ACTIVITIES: Students will have a lot of time on their hands over the next few weeks. It is always a good idea to keep the young minds active during the times away from school. In addition, many of you have asked about resources to keep your student engaged in learning while we are out of school. We have created a website, with the help of Ms. Dasilva, to highlight some of the resources that our Math Resource teacher Mrs. O'Neill and our Instructional Specialist, Dr. Lowe have found to be appropriate for your students to work on while school is out of session.  Please note that none of these are required, but are posted here as options. That said, we strongly encourage students to partake in these academic activities to keep the mind sharp. The learning ALWAYS continues. The following is the website: https://sites.google.com/view/learn-from-home/home?authuser=1. Dr. Boyd and the Lowell Public Schools Administration will be updating our situation throughout the time that we are away from school, as well as providing other resources through the district and in the community to support our families. As those resources are available, we will add them to this website, and notify you through the Sullivan Middle School website as well as the Sullivan Middle School Facebook page. (Note:  We invite you to go to Facebook and search for Sullivan Middle School and 'like' us!).
    2. There is NO SCHOOL ENTRY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE as all the school’s are getting a deep clean. 
    3. FYI. The district is organizing FOOD DISTRIBUTION for our families during these next few weeks as many of our students rely on school meals for their sustenance. The following is currently posted on the District Website: We will be providing lunch for students during the weekdays at five sites: The Bartlett School, Greenhalge School, Murkland School, Reilly/Sullivan campus and the STEM Academy (Rogers). There will be a truck on location for 30 minutes a day at each site with food available to pickup and take home. We will be sure to send you a schedule when it has been finalized. We are also working on setting up additional sites as needed. In addition, our social worker Sarah Brooks and other LPS social workers put together a document for our families indicating local pantry organizations, locations and hours. Please see attached. This was also previously sent out to parents via email and posted onto our website and Facebook page.
    4. SULLIVAN CANCELLATIONS. The following Sullivan School Events over the next two weeks (3/16-3/27) are cancelled until further notice. They may or may not occur at a later date. It is way too uncertain to plan otherwise at this time so for all intents and purposes, the following events are CANCELLED until further notice: 
      • 3/18 6-7 Sullivan PTO Meeting
      • 3/19 3:30-5:30 Sullivan/Butler Wrestling Meet
      • 3/26  5-8:00 PM Sullivan Pasta Dinner/Talent Show

    In addition, the following future events are CANCELLED until further notice:

      • 4/1 Color of Justice Field Trip for gr. 7 & 8 girls 
      • 4/3-4/4 Grade 6 Museum of Science Overnight Field Trip
      • 5/26-5/29 Grade 8 Washington D.C. Trip. (Participating parents have been informed of the plan in a separate email from Mr. Valliere. Email Mr. Valliere if you have any questions)

    I will let you know if the situation changes. 

    I think that is it for now. Again, it remains an intensely fluid situation, Things can and will change. I will do my best to keep you abreast and up to date with important information. Take care of you and your family and stay safe and healthy. We will get through this together. 

    Sincerely,

    Ed Foster, Sullivan Middle School Principal

    Hello Sullivan Parents,

    These are interesting times. By now you have likely heard about the two week closing of Lowell Public Schools due to the Coronavirus (Please see Superintendent’s letter (LPSD COVID-19 Closing Notice 3-13-20) on Sullivan/LPS website for details. We hope you have a healthy and safe two weeks. A couple of important notes:

    • Please see document on the Sullivan website for local pantries and meal program organizations, locations and days of service. 
    • Sometime over the next few days, I will be emailing/calling Sullivan families with information related to some academic activities/websites/packets etc. the kids can do if you wish. It is always a good idea to keep the young minds working over the times away from school. 
    • Information related to the grade 8 Washington D.C. trip will be going out to participating students/parents sometime over the next few days. We are currently working with the company and will have information to share shortly. 

    Again, wishing you and your family a healthy and safe two weeks. 

    Take care.
