Dear Zane Students and Families,

I hope that you and your families are well. By this time, you have heard the announcements from our local and state officials that school buildings will be closed through the end of the school year. Although our first priority is student and community safety, the staff at Zane is deeply saddened by the fact that we will not be together in person. We miss our students and families.

Our commitment is to support you and your family during these challenging times. We believe that our online distance learning model will provide the best possible learning outcomes for our students. In order to support families and students as we transition to online learning, Zane staff have been making personal phone calls to ensure that families have what they need. We have loaned out more than 100 Chromebooks to Zane students who needed them. Our school district has boosted the wireless access into the parking lots at all of our school sites and we continue to work with community partners to increase and bolster internet capabilities to our families. If you find that you are in need of any support to access our online learning platform, please contact our school office at 441-2470.

In addition, Zane’s 4th Quarter Distance Learning Expectation and Grading Policy has been posted to this site, to Zane’s Facebook page, and to Zane’s Google Classroom pages. In regards to the packets handed out during 3rd Quarter, please contact your individual teachers to see how they would like to account for the work.

Please continue to take care of yourself, your families, and your community. Thank you for supporting Zane Middle School.

Sincerely,

Randall Simms Signature
