Western Boone eLearning Day

Information for Parents

Parent Expectations

Western Boone County Community School Corporation utilizes eLearning Days for both planned and inclement weather days. Planned days will be used to provide staff development, whereas inclement weather days will be unscheduled and determined as necessary. For inclement weather eLearning days, parents will still be notified by 6:00 AM. Students will be recorded as present when school work is completed within the designated period of time.

Important Information

Scheduled eLearning Days will occur corporation-wide on the following days:

  • September 25
  • November 27
  • January 29

Prior to the first eLearning day, students will experience eLearning lesson(s) delivered via Canvas, our digital learning management system. For students in grades K-4, the username and password for Canvas will be shared prior to the first eLearning day. Students in grades 5-12 will use the unique username and password that they previously created for their Canvas account.

On scheduled eLearning days, classwork for students in Grades K-12 will be posted online in Canvas by 3:00 p.m. the afternoon before an eLearning Day. Teachers will be available via email during designated hours to respond to questions from students and parents. Computer labs will be available on scheduled eLearning days for students who preregister to attend during specified learning hours. Students will have three (3) school days at Western Boone and five (5) school days at the elementary schools to complete eLearning assignments.

Unscheduled eLearning Days will be utilized in the event of unexpected school closures, such as inclement weather. Parents will be notified through School Messenger of unscheduled eLearning days by 6:00 AM. On unscheduled eLearning days, assignments will be posted in Canvas by 9:00 AM. If school is closed after a two-hour delay was originally scheduled, assignments will be posted by 10:00 AM.
