Schedules & Participation for Middle School Distance Learning

April 22, 2020 | Abby Hall Choi


If you would like a guided tour of our new middle school schedules please watch this video: Overview of Schedules. Then dig deeper with the links below. 

Below are direct links to our schedules. Please note the tabs at the bottom of the document. The first tab is for this week (4.21- 4.24). The second tab is for our subsequent weeks. 

You can also find our schedules linked in the sidebars of 4&5 blog and our 6-8 blog

Teachers will notify students about how/where to join the live meetings.

We know that the move to a weekly schedule is a shift in our distance learning. We do believe this will more fully support our community as we consider a distance learning as a possible long term scenario. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Long-Term Distance Learning Student Participation

As we move into a long-term scenario, please note and begin to talk about the following with your child: 

  • Students attend & participate in each live meeting.
  • Students continue to complete all assigned work.

Just like when we are on campus, if your child needs to miss a session or cannot complete work, please let your child’s teacher know.  

Participation will look like student videos turned on during live meetings. This way teachers and students can more easily interact with each other. If your child has been participating with videos off, please talk with them ahead of time. What would make it easier to participate with their video on? 

Participation will also look like we are ready for school. Students will need to be in a comfortable position and settled for their lives. We ask that students not attend lives from their beds. If you haven’t already set up a school corner with your child, please take some time to do so in the next couple of days.
