eLearning/COVID-19 Information – Parents & Students Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Blue Jacket Family: 

 

Due to the closing of schools, our teachers have been working today to create eLearning assignments for all students. These assignments will be posted online in the teacher’s Google Classroom platform. Parents and students are asked to check their teacher’s Google Classroom for posted assignments and begin work on these assignments Wednesday, March 18. 

 

Each student will be assigned daily work (for each class) for a 10-day period. It is important that all students complete the daily assignments given by all teachers. All assignments will be graded and any work not completed will be assigned a zero in the grade book and count as an absence on the student’s attendance record. All teachers will be available via their email or the Google Classroom platform if students have questions or need assistance with an assignment. 

 

In the event a student does not have internet access, hard copies of assignments will be provided. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or contact the school if you need hard copy assignments. We will work with you to provide your child with their assignments. 

 

We also have set a Device Distribution Schedule if you need to come to school to pick up your child’s device. See the schedule below. A parent/guardian will be required to check the device out. If a child has access to a computer at home with internet access, the school device is not required. Parents who need hard copies of assignments may also come during these scheduled times as well as students who need to pick up band or orchestra equipment. Outside of these times, our building is closed and all events are cancelled.
