The Reopening Learning Guide

Harriton High School

Dear Students and Families,

Welcome to the Reopening Learning Guide. We know this plan to invite more students into the building comes with many questions and we are hopeful that this edition of smore will help you navigate our return to school in this next phase. Please refer to this smore to help guide you/your student through this learning experience.

Pathway Change Requests

Students at any time may change pathways from in-person instruction to LMSD@Home. If a student wants to change from LMSD@Home to in-person instruction, they will have the opportunity every two weeks if they notify the school via a Pathway Change Request Form by the Wednesday of the week before the pathway change dates of (4/12, 4/26, 5/10, and 5/24.)

Attendance

It is important that we have a record of students who are in the building for contact tracing purposes. If your student will be absent from a class or absent for the day, please complete the Safe Arrival Form or call the Safe Arrival Hotline at 610-649-3949. While this is an absence form, and your child will be working from home, we need to be aware that your child is not in the building. Working from home will not be considered an absence. Telling a teacher that your child is working from home is not sufficient. This form must be completed if you plan to keep your child home and they are expected to learn in-person.
