Through e-Learning, teachers can deliver instruction and support through electronic or virtual means when the weather does not allow for staff and students to safely travel to school. As part of our Emergency School Closing Procedures, we move to e-Learning on the fourth school cancellation of the school year.
When there is an e-Learning day, students are expected to learn remotely, either with an electronic device or with pre-arranged materials/activities. While e-Learning cannot replace face-to-face instruction, it provides better continuity of learning when school is interrupted and avoids having to add school days to the end of the school year.
The decision to move to e-Learning will be announced no later than 5:30 a.m. on the day of an e-Learning day. Announcements will be made using the same communication methods we use for school cancellations (phone, text, website, media reports, etc.)
Please ensure that your family’s contact information is updated by contacting your school office.
