REMINDER - NO ONLINE LEARNING ON APRIL 10TH OR 13TH!!
Online Learning Structures
The district is continually evaluating and reflecting on how to best support families during this time of virtual learning. We realize that one of the online learning platforms, Schoology, has been experiencing difficulty handling the abundance of simultaneous amount of users. Thank you for your patience as we navigate during this time.
Here are a few tips to support successful virtual learning at home.
- Consider creating a designated "space" for your child to do their work each day. This DOES NOT necessarily mean a table and chair. We love flexible seating and children should be able to choose a place which is comfortable AND allows them to be productive.
- Consider establishing a designated "time" for your child to do their work each day. As educators, we know that children thrive with routines (even if they fight you on it in the beginning!). Routines provide comfort and security in knowing what's coming next. With the current overload of uncertainty, kids need routines now more than ever!
- In general, we are most likely providing you with MORE activities and learning than you actually need. Please don't feel like your child has to do them all. We also strongly believe in student Voice & Choice! Consider allowing your child the opportunity to choose which activities they wish to do and in which order. If they want to focus more of their time on the P.E., Music or Art activities, that's okay! If they'd like to dig into some of the enrichment activities, go for it! It's more important that their learning is continuing and they continue to love learning! In short, we prefer QUALITY over QUANTITY!

We know that virtual learning can't take place without internet access. If you have limited or no internet access at home, consider these many options.
