COVID-19: Virtual Learning Information

As schools will not be able to offer in-person instruction for the remainder of the school year, we are now going to be making a shift from “Remote Learning” to “Virtual Learning” beginning on Monday, April 13, 2020.

Virtual Learning is not intended to replace or replicate In-Classroom Instruction

Our teachers will be preparing for this shift during the week of April 6 - April 10. This preparation includes online staff and grade level meetings, professional development to ensure equity and access in our online classrooms, as well as training on appropriate technology tools to engage students in virtual learning. Teachers will be collaborating on what essential standards and skills will be the priority during this time including appropriate delivery and assessment methods. Teachers will also be collaborating in order to plan for virtual learning for students.

Parents and Students can expect the following:

  • A weekly video (welcome, instructions and lessons for the week)

  • A virtual check in with students at least once per week

    • Whole Class Virtual Meetings OR

    • Small group Virtual Meetings OR

    • “Office Hours” for students who may need individual support

  • Response to email and voicemail within 48 hours
