The following FAQ sheet is an updating resource that addresses the most common questions and situations that we have encountered while using Calvert Learning this fall.  Many issues are related directly to iPad use, though some items are universal to all devices.


This section is dedicated to the Remote Learning Plan which will go into effect if face-to-face learning becomes restricted at any time during the 2020-2021 school year.

Help Local Resources

Updated 3.20.20

With these difficult times affecting people and having several families that have reached out needing food assistance, there will be a drive thru food pantry pick up over the weekend and into early next week.  There is a sheet that families need to fill out and return via email at mmwhitecottton@gmail.com.  Once the form is filled out and returned there will be an established pickup time to pull up, pop the trunk or open the door, and load their order up. Doing it this way will hopefully limit exposure to people and yet still allow access to the resources available.

I also know helping hands is doing a pick up this weekend and all that information for Stanford residents is on their facebook page.
