No School Wednesday April 7th – E-learning day!

Posted by admin on March 28, 2021 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

Wednesday, April 7th 2021, all elementary students will participate in an eLearning Day. 
On an eLearning Day, hybrid learners do not attend school in-person, and remote learners do not log into Zoom for synchronous instruction. Instead, students complete preassigned lessons during the day at home. Students will be required to complete one math activity, one literacy activity, and one Digital Citizenship lesson. They will also be required to choose at least 3 activities from a selection of various activities. These six lessons are designed to take, on average, 2.5 hours. 

Students will post their completed work on Seesaw (K-2) or Google Classroom (3-5).
