ALL CCSC SCHOOLS CLOSED UNTIL MAY 4, 2020.

Back to School at Home!

Not Your Typical Spring Break!


How quickly things have changed in our world! After one week of learning at home, spring break came just as always. The Hoover staff hopes you had a chance to relax and refresh with your families while social distancing during the spring break!


The Hoover Staff is here for students and families during this stressful time. If you need assistance, please reach out your student's teachers or contact the school office to speak to the nurse, counselor, or principal. We are always willing to help!

E-LEARNING INFORMATION

E-LEARNING CHANGES


Hoover teachers and staff are dedicated to keeping our students moving academically forward at home while school buildings are closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. After our first week of e-learning, Hoover teachers and staff received lots of feedback from parents and students. Based on this feedback our teachers met virtually during spring break to adjust the assignment schedule to allow more flexibility for students and their families working at home. As always, we will continue to evaluate our practice, and make changes as needed to best serve all of our students and their families.


UPDATED E-LEARNING LESSON PLAN SCHEDULE


New e-Learning assignments will be introduced on the following schedule:


The school-wide grade level lesson plans for each week will be emailed on Mondays and Wednesdays. Students will have two or three days to complete each set of lesson plans. This allows for families, especially those with multiple children sharing a device, ample time to complete assignments online and contact teachers and teacher assistance as needed. Below is a sample weekly at home e-learning schedule.


SAMPLE WEEKLY SCHEDULE FOR LEARNING AT HOME:


Monday-Friday – All Students Independently Read 20 minutes per day


Monday: E-Lesson Plan Packet emailed to parent email address in Power School.


Monday: Focus on English/Language Arts and Essential Arts


Tuesday: Focus on Math and Social Studies/Science


Wednesday: E-Lesson Plan Packet emailed to parent email address in Power School.


Wednesday: Focus on English/Language Arts and Essential Arts


Thursday: Focus on Math and Social Studies/Science


Friday: Complete any work from the Monday/Wednesday emailed e-learning lessons, as well as, any additional assignments added by your student's teachers specific to the class or your student's individual learning progress.


NOTE:

Individual classroom and special services teachers may assign additional work or modify assigned work for students as needed to support student learning. Please check your email and Class DoJo daily for communication from your student's teachers. All teachers are available daily to assist students and families with their work by email or DoJo message. You may also contact the school by phone.

ATTENDANCE

Students will be counted as present for school when they complete the assigned online work or turn in the completed paper packet work to their teachers once school resumes. Students working off paper packets will have 2 days following each closure day to complete packet work.

NO DEVICE? NO INTERNET?

GET CONNECTED


If you do not have internet, there are some providers that are reaching out to provide internet to families who need it so we can stay better connected.

Charter Communications announced on March 13, 2020 that for 60 days the company will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access to homes with K-12 students who do not already have a subscription. Installation fees will also be waived for these households. Enroll by calling 844-488-8395. Charter will also continue Spectrum Internet Assist, a program offering low-cost broadband internet of 30 Mbps for low-income households without school-aged children.

Comcast, which owns Xfinity, will offer 60 days free and increased speeds for new families who join the Internet Essentials program, an internet access program for low income families that is normally $9.95 a month.

AT&T announced on Friday it would not cancel service and would waive late fees for any wireless, home phone, broadband residential or small business customer experiencing hardships because of the coronavirus pandemic and can't pay their bills. Qualifying low income households can apply for $10 a month internet access through the Access from AT&T program. Fixed Wireless Internet and Wireline customers can use unlimited internet data. AT&T will also keep public Wi-Fi hotspots open.


NEED A DEVICE?


If you are able to obtain internet access at home for your student(s), but do not currently have an internet accessible device (ipad, laptop, chromebook) for your student(s) to use to complete online work, please call the Hoover School Office for assistance with borrowing a device for your student during this temporary closure.

STUDENT WORK PACKETS

NO DEVICE AT HOME?


During this long separation from school, e-learning will be best for most students to keep connected with their teachers. However, we understand that not all students are able to work online. Students without internet access or a device will be provided with packets of paper lessons to complete during the school closure. Students will be counted as "present" for e-learning days once all packet materials are completed and returned to the school.


PACKET PICK-UP & DROP-OFF


Packets for students who need them will be available for pick-up at the Hoover School Office on Monday, March 30, 2020 from 10:00-1:00. Amy completed work for Lesson Days 1-5, may be turned in to the office at that time. Please make sure all work is labeled with your student's name and teacher.
