Alwin Holland Parent Update

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

With spring break coming to an end we are facing some unprecedented times. Due to the Global Covid-19 Pandemic, all in-class instruction has been suspended. School admin has been working with district staff to discuss protocols to ensure that all members of the school community can be kept safe and that learning still occurs throughout these times.

It is critical that the public not try to access the building next week. Next week staff will be putting safety protocols in place and planning for learning activities. Teachers will be in contact with you regarding the picking up of supplies/shoes, returning library books, etc. Please be patient. AH is a large school, and keeping everyone safe is our top priority. 

Next week staff will be planning for the ‘continuity of learning.’ The learning activities that they are planning are not expected to replicate the normal schedule in a classroom. It is not ‘business or learning as usual’ and we ask for your understanding on this. Our teachers will be working hard to create lessons and activities that will enable the students to continue their growth in different areas and to be prepared for when they all return to the classroom. These learning activities may look different from class to class. Many teachers will use online methods of delivery, although we do understand that some families do not have access to the internet or technology devices. In that case, alternate delivery methods will be considered. Teachers will be in contact with you to discuss this further.  

It is very important that we have current and up-to-date phone numbers and email addresses for all students. If you are unsure if we have that on file, or would like to update that information please email Please also share this message with other parents/guardians of our school community as it is critical we reach all members. 

We will post updates on our webpage ( and Facebook (Alwin Holland Elementary). Official messages are shared on the district’s website at
