Starting Friday, October 9th, Fridays will be Virtual Learning Days. There will be no in person instruction for students on Fridays. Friday coursework will be virtual through Canvas.
What do we mean by a Virtual Learning Friday?
Friday is a day of learning. Teachers are expected to have a Canvas Module and assigned learning task for students to complete during the day. Assignments will be given for each class and should be completed for credit by Sunday evening. We suggest working together with your child and setting a Friday schedule. Setting schedules and daily routines can be extremely helpful in completing assigned learning tasks efficiently. Below is a sample student schedule that could be used (or modified) to help your children get the most out of each Virtual Learning Friday. This is a sample schedule, and could be modified for your needs.
|12:30||PE or other elective|
Students are expected to check in to each class’s Canvas course, review any announcements, and complete the assigned learning tasks.
All Classes will post learning tasks/assignments that are expected to take students 20-30 minutes to complete. If the work is taking longer than that, please communicate with your teacher. Planning for activities virtually instead of in class takes time to figure out.
Communication: All classes use Canvas. This is not a new platform for students. Students are already using Canvas daily in most of their classes. Information about the assigned Friday learning tasks will be posted in individual Canvas courses.
Teacher Office Hours on Friday: All teachers will have office hours on Fridays from 9:15 – 11:15. These hours will be scheduled school wide. During teacher office hours, teachers will be communicating with students and parents and supporting the learning of students through phone calls, emails, and/or Google Meets. A phone list is attached to the back of this page.
Attendance: To complete attendance, there will be a link on your home page of Canvas. You will only need to complete this one time on a Friday.
