March 16, 2020 From Principal Johnson–

Hello Students and Parents,

I hope everyone is well during this challenging time of mandated school closure due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In the interest of staying connected to our students and assisting you in learning and retaining previous learning, I have asked your teachers if you already use Google classroom to please provide students with work, projects, or information and other learning that will support our students during this time of unprecedented school closures.

Since many of our students are connected with their teachers through online learning, the opportunity is available through continued online learning that may provide access to new content.

Additionally, as you may know, the District and City are providing meals and Learning Guides at various sites across the city. For our area, the location is Tilden Middle School. Meals are available from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at this location. Additionally, at this site, Learning Guides from the district are available for pick up. We are working to make these options available online.

These recreation centers and gyms will be open to youth Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. One meal per child will be provided at 3 p.m.

  • J. Finnegan Playground
  • Kingsessing Recreation Center
  • Francis Myers Recreation Center
  • Cobbs Creek Recreation Center

While these efforts are not required, we think they will be helpful once we transition back to school. If you have any questions, you can email me at brjohnson@philasd.org or email your teachers.

Be safe and stay healthy.
