Optional Spanish message template, if needed for emailing your class with supplemental lessons:

Greetings! I hope you and your family are doing well, and staying safe and healthy. While we are out of school, I am sending you these resources so you can keep learning at home. Please take care of your physical and mental health first, but if/when you are able, please check out these lessons I made for you. If you are able to submit your work to me, I will provide you feedback on your learning.

You can pick up paper versions of these lessons at school on (date). If you have questions or want to check in with me through video on the computer, I am available (days/times) through this link (teacher WebEx link), or through email.

¡Saludos! Espero que tú y tu familia estén bien, y que se mantengan sanos y seguros. Mientras no hay clases, te mando estos recursos para que puedas seguir aprendiendo desde casa. Por favor, cuídate primero el bienestar físico y mental, pero cuando puedas, échales un ojo a estas lecciones que he preparado para ti. Si puedes completar el trabajo y me lo entregas, te ofreceré apoyo y recomendaciones para tu aprendizaje.

Para recoger copias en papel de estos recursos, puedes venir a la escuela el (day). Si tienes preguntas o quieres hablar por video en la computadora, estoy disponible los (days) a las (times) por medio de este enlace (teacher WebEx link), o por correo electrónico.
