Classroom Communication and Calendars
Daily Academic Schedule
On March 30th, teachers will hold a 15-minute morning meeting with their students using Google Meet at the designated time for each grade level. Class meetings will be held daily, Monday-Thursday. After the first day, your school may adjust the meeting schedule. These meetings give your child the opportunity to stay connected with the classroom teacher and other support staff. Teachers have been asked to share assignments with students that can be completed within the general guidelines below. We know that different families will have different time windows when students may be able to work on assignments, particularly using technology, so your child will have the flexibility to complete assignments on his/her own schedule. However, teachers may also be sharing opportunities for your child to join in video chats, online discussions, and office hours. These opportunities might only be offered at certain times. Thank you for your ongoing support of our new distance learning plan. This is new for all of us and we will continue to learn, grow, and refine over the coming days and weeks.

Grading and Assessment
