eLEARNING REMINDERS

Set up a location where school work is to be completed. Schedule a time of day.


Daily plans for each grade level can be found on the OES website - eLearning Tab. Lessons for all eLearning days since March 13 can be found here.


Daily plans are to be completed by students, and the expectation is that students also participate in the art, music, PE, and STEM activities.


It is suggested that you establish a schedule for the day so your child knows when he/she is to be engaged in instruciton.Teachers have established regular meeting times.


Please contact the Tech Dept if there are any issues with a chromebook.


Teachers are available to provide additional support, and we expect students to request addtional assistance as needed.


We're proud of the work students are doing, however it's important that parents check to make certain items are completed. Many times we're hearing that students have unfinished work.
