We feel distance learning cannot replace being in the classroom without students but we want to make the most of the time. Having a routine is important for students and even from home, we want school to be part of their weekday just like a “normal” year. Below is a short summary of how our TLC Distance Learning plan will go beginning August 3rd. Homework will be minimal as to not overwhelm parents and students.
You will be able to join any class online from any device with the Google Classroom app or website. Many parents have inquired about purchasing Chromebooks for their students; we recommend at least 4gb of ram. We purchase ours from Amazon. IF you need to borrow one, we have a limited number; click here to put in a request.
More details will come in the coming days with regards to specific times for your student(s) but this gives you an idea so you can plan your own daily routines.
Students will attend mandatory virtual classes for Math, Science, Social Studies, and all Language Arts including Spanish and ASL based on our original 7:30 – 4:30 schedule for the 2020-2021 school year. All elective classes will be postponed until we are able to return to campus.
The only exceptions will be the Internship class which will take place on Wednesdays during 4th period (11:30am) and Career Ed which will take place on Thursdays during 4th period (11:30 am).
We expect students who have electives in their schedule to use that time for completing homework while we are distance learning. All assignments and class information will be posted using Google Classroom. All virtual classes will be using either Zoom or Meet at their regularly scheduled time and attendance will be taken for each period.
Students will attend mandatory virtual classes for core subjects (Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts) between the hours of 8am-12:30pm. Classes will be led by the teacher and will be interactive. Assignments, news and announcements, and class information will be posted via Google Classroom.
Students will attend mandatory, interactive Math, Reading, and Writing classes daily, Monday through Friday. Classes start at 8:00 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m. Each teacher will post schedules, some work for home, and announcements on Google Classroom.
