HASD Remote Learning

Guidelines and Tips for Families and Students

School and Family Partnership

Parents are playing a much larger role in their children’s learning, while navigating the stressors of work, home life, and a global pandemic. Understandably, parents are feeling a great deal of uncertainty. We are committed to supporting the families who are our partners in remote learning.

Remote Learning During In-Person Learning

Teachers will be working with students in class and remote learners simultaneously.


  • Students should be prepared for class and logged on to Canvas when the school day begins for attendance.
  • Students should have their cameras and microphones enabled for morning attendance and when speaking to the teacher/class.
  • Teachers will direct students when to enable & disable their camera/microphone throughout the day.
  • In some circumstances headphones are a good way to keep students focused on the learning environment and keep noise down for family members.
  • Students should "raise their hand" to talk.
  • Teachers may design breaks from devices into their instruction.
  • Teachers will work with families to make sure your children take plenty of breaks from devices in order to get time away from their screens. Encourage students to get up, get some fresh air, have a snack, and participate in physical activities.
