Students who are participating in school fully remote this fall have been scheduled into classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On those days, students should connect with their teachers via Zoom at the time that the class is scheduled to meet. The teacher will provide instruction, model the learning activity where applicable, facilitate online discussions, and clarify the expectations for students’ independent work. Students can ask questions during this time. Once the Zoom session ends, students can ask questions by emailing their teachers directly or using the link to the Help Desk.
On Mondays and Thursdays, students are expected to continue working on the series of learning activities provided by the teacher. These activities will help students deepen their understanding of important concepts, practice skills in preparation for the next phase of learning, and apply knowledge and skills from previous lessons. Again, if students have questions on Mondays or Thursdays, they can email the teacher directly. Please keep in mind that they may not get an immediate response since teachers have students in front of them every period on Mondays and Thursdays. For more immediate help, students can access the Help Desk every day between 8 and 11 a.m.
The Help Desk connects students (via Zoom) with a trained staff member who will do their best to answer questions and guide students through both curriculum questions and basic technology troubleshooting. Students can just connect to the Help Desk or they can let their homeroom teacher know they want to be contacted for help (this is done through the daily attendance form).
Students should go into their Homeroom Classroom (via Google Classroom) EVERYDAY to check in for morning attendance. This is just like going to homeroom every morning when students attend school in-person. We will track daily attendance for remote learners EVERYDAY, not just Tues/Wed/Fri.
