Our goal for distance learning will be to mirror a typical in-person school day as closely as possible. To help accomplish that goal, we have set forth the following expectations for teachers and students:
Middle and High School
a.Ensure that the surroundings are free from noises and distractions.
b.Students should enter the room with video turned on and microphone turned off. Do not use virtual backgrounds or other names besides your own in video identification.
c.Teachers will provide other guidelines at their discretion regarding use of the chat and hand-raising feature and may communicate other expectations regarding participation.
Who do I contact if I have a question?
In the Middle and Upper School, please contact individual teachers if you have concerns about classwork. In the Lower School, your first point of contact should be homeroom teachers. If you have a technology related issue, please email our Technology Department at email@example.com or (786) 543-8870.
How will the School ensure that my child has continuity of learning?
Teachers and school leaders have worked closely to finalize a distance learning plan that will ensure continuity of learning. Utilizing Canvas (our Learning Management System for K-12) and other technology platforms, like email and video conferencing, our teachers will remain in contact with every student with an open line of communication to parents.
If my child is sick on a distance learning day, what should my family do?
Just like on a normal school day, a parent should notify administration if their child is sick. Because all of the classes are being recorded and archived through the end of the school year, students will have the opportunity to watch classes at a later time when they are feeling better to catch up without having missed that classroom instruction.
