Dear Parents and Families,

Last Friday, Governor Cuomo closed schools for the remainder of this academic year.  As you may have felt, this news to us came with mixed reaction.  While we are saddened, we will not be able to come together to end our year with our usual celebrations, we also recognize the need to keep our students, staff and our families safe and continue our social distancing practices. 

The Makowski community understands the stress of educating your child from home and the challenges we all face balancing our responsibilities during this time.  Know, our teachers and staff will continue to be here to assist you with any educational or social and emotional supports for you, your child or your family.

Be comforted in knowing we are beginning to plan for the reopening of schools in the Fall.  This will include helping students adjust back to the school environment and their academic needs to reach grade level standards.  We will be working to ensure the buildings are clean and sanitized for the protection of your student.

Thank you for helping your child complete assignments.  Thank you for submitting work pictures.  Thank you for answering our calls and thank you for participating in video conferences.  Please continue to partner with us during this time apart so that we can be together soon.

Be well.  Be Safe.

Attention Parents and Students:

I hope you and your family are staying safe during this difficult time. We will continue with distance learning until the end of the school year.  Learning will continue at home, and you can check my website for all student work and updated information.  I will be uploading resources to this page, as well as some fun activities to do at home.

Important information to know:

* ELA, Math, and IB lessons will be posted each week on Monday by 9AM. 

*Read alouds will be uploaded a few times during the week, so gather the whole family around for a quick story time. 

*Any additional links/websites that I find that may be helpful to you will be posted on the website. 

As we work together during this uncertain time, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. You can email me at jlwoodward@buffaloschools.org.  I will also be sending out a class code for you to join Remind.  You can download the Remind app for free on your phone.  This will be a quick way for you to send me messages and questions.

Thank you for your patience, stay healthy and safe, and I look forward to the education opportunities ahead.
