Remote Learning at Audubon

Audubon Families,

We are going to be embarking on a two week remote learning option for students starting November 10. This is because of the number of staff members being quarantined due to contact with confirmed and potentially positive COVID cases. Some staff that is not quarantined will also work from home during the next few weeks as a precaution. We will still have an open office and some staff will work from school through the 20th. If you need to reach the office please call us. We can help you get something that a student may have forgotten during this time as well.

As you read below many of your questions will hopefully be answered. It talks about schedules, meals, specials and other parts of the day you will have as we move forward.

We are still here to support you and your children during this time. Please let us know what you need and how we can help.

Thank you all!

Wishing you health and wellness,

Aaron Ford

Tuesday, November 10th

Students will check-in with their teacher for a morning meeting on Tuesday at 8:00 via WebEx. This meeting will be to set the expectations for the day and to also give students their work for the rest of the day.

All of the students will be participating in an "asynchronous" learning day for Tuesday so that staff can get everything ready for the remainder of the remote learning cycle. The only contact that students will have with teachers on Tuesday will be their morning meeting and by appointment if the student reaches out.

November 11 - November 20

Students will participate in remote learning during this time. We will be keeping our same daily schedule that students are currently using so that specials, small groups, interventions and other already scheduled programs can continue without major changes.

Teachers will be posting schedules on Schoology Tuesday morning so that families can start to make their plans for what things begin looking like on Wednesday.

Instruction Time - Something to expect as we move forward with remote learning is we will not have students participating in 6.5 hours of online, live learning each day. That is not what is best for students and we do not want them sitting in front of the computer "live" all day. Students will be having 90-120 minutes of live learning with their classroom teacher each day with some additional live time with specials teachers and Random Acts of Kindness.

Specials Classes - students that are in art or music this week will continue to have live specials. They will go to their specials Schoology page and join via WebEx during their regularly scheduled time. Those students that have PE will log into Coach Tarver's Schoology page and participate in PE choice activities.

Meal Options

We will be starting our "Grab and Go" meal program during the lunch hour for any and all students. Families can come to Audubon from 11:00 - 12:00 and get meals by driving through our front parking lot area. The lunches will also have a breakfast with them for the following day.

Planned Return - November 30th

We plan to return to in-person learning on Monday, November 30th once we have concluded Thanksgiving Break.

Technology Support

If you are ever needing technology support during our remote learning time, or even when we get back to in-person, you can reach out to Mr. Watson. His contact information is:

Mr. Watson is ready and willing to support in any way that he can.

Thank you to everyone. We will get through this together!
