School to Home Lessons
Learning at Home
While Federal Way Public Schools are closed, we are partnering with families and community to support our scholars’ learning while they are home. Our approach ensures equitable learning access for ALL students. Because there are limitations to going to an online only model, we have mailed 6-weeks of standards-based learning activities to ensure all students have access to essential learning and practice while schools are closed.
Teachers may also provide additional instructional learning materials to students.
Additionally, teachers will be available to provide students and parents assistance with these learning activities via email.
In the items mailed home, you will find hardcopy lessons and activities for use at home. The contents can be completed without the use of technology or online supports.
The purpose of this work is to provide the ability for your child to practice standards they’ve previously been taught this school year. You can support your child’s learning by doing the following:
- Share the importance of studying and completing schoolwork so they do not experience a gap in learning
- Provide space/location to allow for quiet practice of skills
- Celebrate the completion of work
These activities are also accessible online in the following locations:
- ParentVUE Login: https://grades.fwps.org
- StudentVUE Login: https://grades.fwps.org
- Canvas for Students: https://fwps.instructure.com
- Parent Portal School to Home Resources: https://www.fwps.org/Page/7420
Although not required for learning, there are resources referenced at the end of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to access additional learning online.
In addition to what is provided across the district, individual teachers may offer suggested projects or activities for practice that pertain to their particular class.
We embrace our parents and caregivers as vital partners in the education of all our scholars, as reflected in our strategic plan commitment of “schools can’t do it alone”. We care deeply about your child’s academic and social emotional learning.
If you have questions or need further support related to these learning activities, please email your child’s teacher or call 253-945-2006.
