During our period of distance learning, your child will learn through a combination of recorded videos, television programming, and real-time video calls. Students will use the web-based program Canvas to find lessons and complete assignments. Students will also have the opportunity to complete paper-based assignments. Students are not expected to be sitting in front of a computer or television for a specific amount of time - distance learning is designed to be flexible. Students will also have regular check-ins with their teacher. Your child’s teacher will contact you to share more information about learning schedules. You can find links and resources below.
The primary program that students and teachers will use is Canvas.

Online Learning Block: This is the time block when teachers have live or recorded lessons for and with students (using Zoom or another conferencing platform). As a result, families will know when their student(s) should be online for learning daily, and elementary students can easily share devices.
Instructional packets will be available for students for offline learning. Packets will include daily activities for each ELA and Math, as well as menus of activities for science, social studies, social emotional learning, physical education, music and art.
Packets for all grade levels will be available at each meal site. Packets will be distributed on 4/10, 4/20 and 5/1.
Note: The first packet on 4/10 will include one week of content. The packets available on 4/20 and 5/1 will each include two weeks of content. The packets will also be posted here on the same dates as an additional resource to families.
Students who engage with printed work packets will NOT turn in completed packets. Students will discuss the work they completed in the packets with their teachers during their ongoing, individual check-ins.
