Protocols for Going Virtual
There are a few things that I must address when it comes to virtual learning. The virtual learning platform is for students that are unable to attend due to an illness, quarantine, or waiting for results of a test - due to a potential exposure. At this time, it is not meant for students who would like to stay home for the day or are out of town. The teachers put a great deal of effort into making sure the lessons and materials are available for the students.
We are coming into a time where there seems to be more students home due to colds. That is bound to happen. If your child is going to be out for the day (or an extended period of time) you need to inform Mrs. Rychtik. She is the contact person for attendance. Please also let her know if your child will be attending school virtually during the time out of school so she can communicate that to the teachers. You are welcome to reach out to your child's teacher(s) as well so the teacher(s) can get necessary materials together, but don't forget to also contact Mrs. Rychtik.
Students that are virtual are considered present for the day. This means that your child should treat the day like a regular class day. They must join the class on time, have their camera on, pay attention, participate, and remove all distractions from the background (tv, cell phones, etc). In order to be considered present for the day, your child must attend every class in their daily schedule - unless previous arrangements have been made between the teacher and the student. A few students have been picking and choosing the times they want to attend class and when the teachers are looking for the student, they are not in the Google Meet. This is considered an absence. I will be popping into classes virtually to monitor the lessons.
Thank you all for helping make this school year successful. It takes us all working together to continue to keep us here.
