Distance Learning Expectations

This year is NOT the same as last year’s distance learning. The expectations for student participation are the same as if we were in regular school.


  • Attendance will be taken every day for every period scheduled. If a student misses a class session, they MUST get in touch with their teacher(s) in order to communicate their absence. First and last names should be displayed in Zoom or Google Meet


  • Regular A-F letter grades will be assigned. Students are expected to participate and complete work as usual. If you are experiencing technological difficulties or need school supplies, please contact your child’s counselor or an administrator and we will assist you.

  • School rules regarding conduct and dress are still in effect. Please be sure to have students wear appropriate attire for a school setting and follow the rules of conduct as laid out in our student handbook found on our website.

  • Please make sure that any virtual or in-home Zoom backgrounds are also school appropriate. Students who display inappropriate backgrounds or images during a class may be subject to school discipline. Remember, we are creating a positive professional environment for all to learn and engage with their teachers and peers.

  • Use appropriate language when writing and speaking. You are still in a classroom and we strive for academic language and respectful speech.

Additional Tools for Success

  • Be prepared and on time for class
  • Test audio and visual before class
  • Follow class “norms”
  • Use a designated work space
  • Avoid multitasking
  • Minimize noise and distractions
  • Keep a planner to log homework and assignments
  • Check your email several times a day

Distance Learning Google Site

In an effort to streamline all of our information, we have created a Google Site dedicated to this school year. A link can also be found at the top of our webpage at chs.mdusd.org.

Please review the following schedule for assigned class times. On Wednesdays, students will check in with their Advisory teacher for attendance. This is time for teachers to touch base with students, find out what is working for them, where they are struggling, etc. Students will then have opportunities to get help from other teachers where needed and as assigned by teacher.


Students will receive information through Google Classroom about

Zoom and/or Google Meet classroom links.
