On-Line Learning Option
CHOOSING THE ONLINE LEARNING OPTION
Parents with concerns about COVID-19 have the prerogative to choose an on-line learning option instead of sending their child(ren) to the school campus. Students enrolled in this option will attend school via a live feed from the grade-level designated, online classroom and teacher. The online learning option mirrors the in person schedule.
Students participating in this option will also be assigned a virtual support teacher who will meet with them online as needed, and act as a liaison with the classroom teacher on campus. Students will have access to a school-issued device for home use.
Teachers will post all school work on mySMS, where the teacher's webpage is located, for parents to access and help their child(ren) to navigate his or her scheduled work. Teachers will also communicate the best means to turn in school work once it is completed. Online students will get breaks, along with their in person classmates, and at the discretion of their parent or guardian.
- Attendance: On the days students participating in the on-line learning option complete and turn in work, they will be considered present at school. If they do not complete and turn in work, they will be considered absent from school. These absences will be noted on the report card. We expect students will be present during live streamed core classes.
- Encore subject grades will be entered for those students in the on-line learning option, however, it may not be possible for the teacher to determine grades for all non-academic aspects of the report card. In this situation, that part of the report card will be left blank, and the homeroom teacher will notate in the comment section that the student participated in the online learning option.
- Uniforms: Online students will be required to wear their uniforms while in the live stream class.
