Digital Learning Day

Tuesday November 8th
For all students – asynchronous learning
Teacher Planning Day

Students will access lessons in eCLASS and will have the opportunity to connect with their teachers virtually during the day. Teachers will communicate detailed information to parents regarding specific information for their classes.

Devices for Digital Learning Day

All students in grades 3-5 have been given a Chromebook, a sleeve bag, and a charger to take home whenever they have digital schoolwork to complete. Parents DO NOT need to request a device for digital learning days if their child is in grades 3-5.

Students in grades K-2 have also been assigned a Chromebook to use at school. If you have a child in grades K-2 and your child needs to bring their Chromebook home for digital learning days, please reach out to your child’s teacher. The digital learning days for this year are:

  • November 8th
  • February 3rd
  • March 17th

At this time, we may not have enough chargers to send home for device requests for students in grades K-2. We have ordered additional chargers but are waiting on their delivery. For any requests made for devices for K-2 students for November 8th, students will be sent home with a fully charged Chromebook. The battery should last 6-8 hours and should be more than sufficient for the students to complete all course work.

If you have any questions about devices for digital learning days, please contact your child’s teacher.
