Distance Learning Introduction:
We are committed to providing ongoing instruction during the extended school closure due to COVID-19. Students are expected to continue working on their schoolwork remotely. All teachers and schools have worked to create meaningful learning activities/lessons that focus on reviewing, extending and reinforcing grade-level standards.
Remote teaching and learning will take many forms. But you can expect that there will be communication, progress monitoring, and/or feedback between teachers and students. While e-Learning is not the same as the regular classroom environment, it can provide some continuity when school is interrupted. It will also serve to further prepare our students for today's digital world.
Teachers (as well as administrators and other certified staff members) will be available by email or other digital learning spaces such as Google Classroom, ClassDojo, Google Hangouts).
While not online continuously, teachers will monitor email and other communication with students and parents regularly throughout the school day.
Students are expected to participate in class activities each day and teachers will be monitoring this. If a student is unable to complete assignments the student and/or parent should contact the teacher(s). Students who are absent will be responsible for doing the required daily work on their own time as they would in any other situation in which they may have been absent from school.
If a child is sick and unable to complete e-Learning activities, parents should email the teacher to let them know.
Students will be responsible to make up the work when they are well. However, we will all need to be flexible and understanding as we use e-Learning to address individual student needs.
