Greetings, Fort Scott Middle School Families:

We are excited to work with you as we begin our 2020-2021 school year. USD 234 is offering two options Students can attend in person 5 days per week or students can choose our remote learning option. If you choose the at-home remote learning experience, we ask that you still use the online enrollment process and also call the Middle School office to confirm your remote choice. 

 We have been planning and preparing to ensure that your student(s) experience a high-quality and appropriately-rigorous educational experience during this time. Thank you for being our partner in this process, and please know that your feedback will continue to be important to us throughout the at-home remote learning experience as well as in-person learning experience.

For Remote Learning:

There are a few requirements that have been set forth by our Kansas State Department of Education, and we are asking for your commitment to help us successfully meet these requirements. Under these requirements, each at-home remote learning student and family will be required to complete the following:

  • A daily log for documentation of teacher contact and total learning time (any and all learning activities, not just screen time) that meets or exceeds 360 minutes (6 hours) per day.

  • Submission of the daily logs at least weekly in one of a few ways described below.
