The School Board voted to begin school on August 17th and all students will be virtual. The Board will reassess on August 28th to determine if we will continue educating virtually, or if we can go to school in-person. Because we are all virtual, you do not need to fill out a virtual form at this time. You will need to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need a device for your child to use. The district has ordered devices, however, due to the impact the pandemic has had on the country-- they are backordered. If you have a laptop, a desktop PC or anything with a keyboard- it will be usable for the online work. We are limited in the number of devices we have on hand and will only be able to send out 1 per household.
There has been confusion about the 6.5 hours of work/instruction. We will supply you with a daily schedule indicating the amount of time each subject requires for learning. Keep in mind our school day is not 6.5 hours of straight work. Included in your child's day is lunch, recess, RTI and a specialty class. Teachers will not be requiring students to do all of the work in front of the computer the whole time. If you have more than one child at home and need assistance in creating a school day schedule for them- please do not hesitate to reach out to us. The following is a guide to assist you in planning your child's learning day: Reading = 1 hour and 30 minutes, Math = 1 hour and 30 minutes, Social Studies = 50 minutes, Science = 50 minutes, Lunch = 30 minutes, Recess = 30 minutes, Go Noodle = 10 minutes (for a break between work/learning), RTI intervention = 40 minutes
