Remote School Expectations

Thank you to our students who are showing that they are prepared and engaged during remote learning. It is imperative that parents and students treat remote school like F2F school to help ensure the best learning environment.

Parents, we need your help with this. Many students are missing assignments. Supervised engagement through frequent check-ins will help ensure that your student is tuned in to teachers' directions and guidance.

Student expectations for remote learning should be followed by all students. Students are expected to:

  • be dressed - shirts and bottoms (pants/shorts/skirts)
  • be sitting up - not lying down in bed.
  • be visible - no blankets over their heads - we need to see their beautiful faces.
  • not be eating - they have lots of time to grab snacks and lunch during asynchronous learning time AND a built in lunch/recess time.
  • enter the Google Meet with mics muted to help teachers if lessons have already started.

2nd Opportunity - Conversation with the Counselor (and administration too!)!

Please join us for our first monthly parent meeting with our counselor, Mrs. Johnson! This will be an opportunity for you to connect with other parents. Connecting with other parents and talking with member of the school is VERY important. We want to be there for you! We know you might be struggling to balance work, child care, and self-care while keeping worries under control. You don’t have to do it alone. We're here, ready to listen and help!
