Virtual Learning Updates

Updated (04/20/20)

The instructional day for students will now be 4 days a week, Monday through Thursday.

Over the past 4 weeks of virtual school, the district and schools have received feedback about balancing school work for both students and employees. The updated schedule is designed so that Fridays are less demanding for staff. On Fridays, no new assignments will be assigned or due. Families at home should use Fridays to:

  • Learn new skills with their families

  • Work on incomplete assignments

  • Make up allowable work

  • Actively work on a plan to improve their grade

  • Find fun activities to engage and to destress

Teachers have a two-hour block carved out on Fridays for priority students. Priority students are students who are currently failing. Teachers will identify a few priority students to work with. The students will be contacted by the teacher a few days in advance so the student can prepare their schedules accordingly.

See the updated schedule here:

Thanks for understanding the updates are to provide care not only to our students but to our teachers and staff who are working long days with families and other responsibilities.

Connection’s Attendance Incentive

Starting today, Inman is having a weekly Connection Class Attendance Drawing! Attending Connection classes are just as important as the core classes. Students who attend and engage in their Connection classes will be entered in a weekly drawing. There will be 6 winners drawn from each grade. Yes, you read that right 6 winners from each grade.

What's expected of students?

Virtual learning is an exciting new opportunity for us. We want our students to be safe, but we also want learning to continue. Click on the link below to see what APS has outlined for our students and parents.

Grade Level School Business Classrooms

Each grade level has a classroom dedicated to their specific needs and activities. Your child's advisory teacher will post the link to their grade level class so that students absent Friday can still join.

Students are expected to follow all APS behavior guidelines regarding online/virtual learning etiquette. Assistant Principals, Counselors, and various other Administrators will be actively monitoring Google Classrooms to ensure that the conversation is school-appropriate. The following will be the behavior protocol for students who are not following online/virtual learning behavior expectations:

First- Formal Google Meets meeting with Mrs. Head or Mr. James regarding behavior infraction.

Second- A formal warning letter will be sent to parents.

Final- A formal behavior referral will be entered into Infinite Campus and be placed on student's behavior records.
