eLearning is learning conducted via electronic media over the Internet. eLearning provides students with access to educational resources and curricula outside of the traditional classroom setting.

While elearning does require some screen time, our teachers are working hard to provide both on-screen and off-screen activities. These activities along with live and self-paced instruction will vary depending on the content area, and age and needs of students. However, students will NOT be expected to be logged into live meetings or on the screen for the duration of an entire school day during elearning.

In order to accommodate as many families' schedules as possible during eLearning, our teachers will record their live instruction so students who are not able to login during regular class hours are still able to access their classes via Google Classroom.

August 12 - August 21

  • Elementary students log in 8 a.m. - 11 a.m
  • Middle and high school students log in 9 a.m. to noon

August 24, the schedule will shift to extended eLearning, which aligns with a normal school day schedule:

  • 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. for elementary students
  • 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. for middle and high school students.

How will my student receive instruction?

All teachers will use Google Classroom as their learning management system. Google Classroom will be used to connect with students, post assignments and announcements, share links to learning activities, and more.

Teachers will blend both on-screen and off-screen activities, based on the age and needs of your student. They will also use Google Meet for live instruction. If your student is unable to attend a live instruction meeting, it will be recorded and posted on the teacher’s Google Classroom for viewing later.
