From Dr. Duffy, James Monroe High School
Update for October 9, 2020
Good afternoon, Yellow Jackets. This is Dr. Duffy, Principal of James Monroe High School with another weekly update. This update contains important updates on academic work, attendance, and virtual class meeting schedules. This information will also be posted on our webpage.
I want you to know we are aware how many of our students are struggling with accessing, completing, and engaging in their schoolwork in the current distance learning format. With this in mind, we have determined that James Monroe High School will accept late work during the first semester. It is important that all students work with their teachers to complete their work and attend their virtual class meetings to get the support they need.
Virtual Class Meeting Schedule
We have updated the virtual class meeting schedule, which will be posted on our webpage. During these virtual class meetings, teachers will provide question and answer sessions, a review of the LAP student schedule, as well as direct instruction that will provide timely support to those in attendance.
Keep in mind that we have shifted the A/B schedule in the following way. Mondays and Tuesdays will be A days, and Thursdays and Fridays will be B days. Wednesday will be distance learning days, but teacher will be available for office hours on Wednesdays.
Finally, we will share a suggested students schedule that aligns with the virtual class meeting schedule starting on Monday. I hope you find that schedule as a helpful way to organize your distance learning school day.
Each module will now include a LAP Overview and Schedule which will include the following information as a front page in each of our courses: a descriptive title of each task, possible points earned, approximate time required, and a suggested due date. We hope this resource will help you plan your work on your modules.
