Remote learning works better when we work together.
Thank you so much for your support with Remote Learning. Your outstanding partnership made instruction during the first week possible This has been a big undertaking for all of us, and it’s safe to say that we are all learning with our students. Heading into Week 2, we encourage you to think of Zoom as your child’s virtual classroom. With that in mind:
Students should be on time and dressed for class.
Students should demonstrate attention to the instruction based on the teacher’s expectations.
The audio on Zoom will pick up sounds around the student. Please try to make sure that your child’s microphone is muted unless your student is responding to the class. When your student is responding with the microphone on, please make sure the background noises and conversations are appropriate for a classroom.
For your privacy, it is best for your student to position the camera so that your student is the only person viewable. Consider having your child sit with his back to a wall. This will limit distractions and the potential for family members unintentionally being seen by the class.
There may be times when the teachers invite students to introduce a family member or pet to the class. Other than specially scheduled guests, please help keep siblings and pets out of the Zoom “classroom”.
Any others appearing in the Zoom should also be mindful of clothing, language and behavior that are appropriate for the classroom.
Your help encouraging your student when logging on and transitioning between classes is much appreciated. During class, your child’s teacher will provide instructions and redirection as necessary. As your child becomes more independent, consider limiting your own directives so that your child is focused on the teacher.
We appreciate your extraordinary efforts and your willingness to prioritize your child’s education. It is always our goal to continuously improve our instruction and services. Your feedback helps us to do just that, so please share your suggestions and comments with your child’s teacher privately.
Stay Well. Stay Safe. Be Kind.
