Distance Learning Option


Families with health concerns about in-person learning can choose a distance learning model to provide instruction for students. It is important to note that distance learning can not replicate the learning that occurs face-to-face in the classroom. Success with distance learning will require ongoing collaboration between school and home. It is expected that an adult is consistently available throughout the day to support student engagement, learning and work completion. Teachers will not be able to check in with distance learners during the school day but will be available each day from 3-3:30 to answer questions and give feedback.

Students will attend school from 8:30-3:30 each day and follow the daily schedule for their class provided by their teacher. Students will log into live stream Google Meet sessions for class meetings and direct instruction in all content areas. Once the lesson has ended, students will log off and complete assignments that have been posted to Seesaw (PK-2) or Google Classroom (3-6). Families will be notified of the schedule in advance. Students with IEPs, 504 plans or receive academic support through SRBI will receive services. Those services will also be scheduled and communicated to families. Students are expected to attend all live sessions and complete all posted work. Live sessions will not be recorded and attendance will be taken daily.
