The first day of school for students in Pre-Primary through Grade 3, whether on-campus or online, will be Tuesday, September 8, 2020. Students who begin the year in the Distance Learning Program must remain in the program until October 12th. At that time, a student may re-enroll in the Distance Learning program or transfer to the On-Campus option.
Distance Learning for our Lower Campus students requires a significant amount of flexibility and parent involvement. Parents will be responsible for creating a dedicated learning space, establishing routines, navigating multiple online learning platforms, and ensuring their child follows their assigned daily “class” schedule.
The Lower Campus Distance Learning program will be implemented using a team of teachers that will work in partnership with your child’s assigned classroom teacher(s). The Distance Learning Team will provide the students with a daily schedule, including small live group and individual Zoom lessons, independent work time activities, and prerecorded instructional videos. Opportunities to join classroom lessons, special area classes, presentations, and lunchtime chats with classmates will be provided. Classroom teachers will also have weekly check-ins with distance learning students.
All Distance Learning students will be given a “Bulldog Bag” that will contain school supplies and instructional materials needed to support at-home lessons. Parents will be required to pick up additional instructional materials every two to three weeks. Specific details, including daily schedules, pick up date for Bulldog Bags, online platform registration, and distance learning team teachers, will be sent the week of August 31st.
