REMOTE LEARNING EXPECTATIONS AND GUIDELINES FOR
THE DISTRICT, TEACHERS, PARENTS, AND STUDENTS
We want to emphasize to all parents that we understand the challenges you face as we deal with these unprecedented times. Your child’s education is a shared responsibility and you are being asked to play a greater role than ever before. Our goal is 100% student participation. We are here to lead, guide, and support learning efforts at home. You are encouraged to reach out to the teachers with any questions and or concerns you may have. Discussions will continue to be conducted to ensure that we are implementing practices that are in the best interest of supporting high quality, engaged learning for all students.
Please contact Ms. Mohn at email@example.com if your student does not have access to a device such as a Chromebook or a tablet to complete online learning activities. Devices are available to support student learning at home during the Remote Learning days. If a child is experiencing problems with a Chromebook or other digital learning resources, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
