Navajo County COVID-19 Update

March 26, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians:

At this unprecedented time of a national emergency and state declared public school closures, we are making every effort to continue our educational program for our students at Cedar Unified School District. In continuing our educational programs, we have begun with hard-copy homework assignments that need to be returned to the school through the drop-off crates in the school cafeteria. The hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. which coincides with the bag-n-grab breakfast and lunch for all students in the area. The plastic crates are identified by teacher names. Additionally, for those with access to digital resources, we are using email, smart phones, All Call, Google Hangout, ZOOM, and one-way YouTube live streaming. 

Further, we have on our school website excellent educational links that can be accessed from home, see Helpful Links, or in the parking lot at Jeddito elementary/junior high school parking. For our teaching faculty and parents, we have from Stanford University the K12 Lab Network for on-going “professional development experiences that inspire educators and set them on a journey to creatively engage with their students, content, school, and community. Through this lab, faculty and staff are constantly developing ways to build the creative confidence of educators. The professional development experiences focus on practices that inspire educators and set them on a journey to creatively engage with their students, content, school, and community. The lab experiences inspire educators in new ways to teach in immersive real-world projects and experiences where creative problem-solving matters most.”

Our school is also developing online hybrid educational program links with Stanford University for courses that have been taught for many years to leverage academically inspired students in grades five through 11. In addition to the Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies and International Institutes, The Honors Academy, and SPICE, the more popular topics in these online instructional resources are Design Thinking, Business and Entrepreneurship, Creative Writing/Expository Writing, Artificial Intelligence/Game Design, and Bioscience/Biotechnology. These are in online or hybrid version course format working with school faculty. The courses are designed for 20 to 25 hours of instruction and 25 hours of project work in a six week version or 10 week version. 

Lastly, we are forwarding some exceptional educational resource links that may also be accessed from home or at our school hot spot. Google Chrome is currently the digital platform that can be used to access these links:
