MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
Our high school and middle school teachers are ready to Zoom with you on Wednesday and get you logged into your Google Classrooms. Our elementary teachers can't wait to see you at the drive by events to pick up your Chromebooks and classroom materials. Remember to stay in your cars. Please be sure to check out your school's website for details or call your school to arrange a time if you missed the distribution day.
Yelm Community Schools is ready for you!
How will Attendance be Taken?
Elementary attendance is recorded DAILY at 8am at the LIVE Zoom meeting.
High/Middle School attendance is recorded DAILY at the beginning of each LIVE class period and advisory.
If a student isn't able to connect for the LIVE session, teachers will use additional methods by
- monitoring Google Classroom connections and evidence of work for assigned lesson
- making direct contact with student by email or phone
On Wednesdays, attendance will be recorded when students connect to Google Classrooms and demonstrate evidence of work for assigned lesson. HS/MS students may also attend the live support Zooms for that particular course.
If a student is unable to attend class due to illness, parents are asked to report the absence by contacting the school office.
