ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR REMOTE STUDENTS

Remote students should be logged into their 1st-period class by 8:16 a.m.

They should log in to their 3rd-period class Google Meet during Homeroom.

Teacher OFFICE  hours will convert to 2:08 to 3:08 every school day.

If a staff member has to change their OFFICE hours at any time, this will be communicated to students via Google Classroom.

Physical Education can not be done synchronously for students remaining on remote instruction. Independent activities will be posted daily in Physical Education Google Classrooms for our remote learners.

Covid Protocol Reminders:

  • Here are some points of emphasis to keep in mind as we collectively work together to avoid COVID outbreaks that could shut the school and activities back down to fully remote:
  • Any student not feeling well on any given day should remain at home and participate in their classes remotely. They will not be penalized in any way as long as they participate in their classes.
  • Students should be prepared to remain 6 feet away from each other and staff at all times. This is a major aim of the hybrid schedule. We must maintain our distance between students and staff throughout the in-person school day.
  • Desks in classrooms have been marked to ensure 6 feet of distance during classes.
  • Our water fountains throughout the building are turned off due to COVID restrictions. Students are permitted to bring their own water bottles to school with them. Each student's bottle must be clearly labeled with his/her name.
  • Eating will not be permitted in the building unless medically approved.
  • All students must wipe down their desks and shield at the end of each period. Wipes will be provided in each classroom.
  • Students will not be permitted to utilize hallway lockers or locker rooms at this time due to COVID restrictions.

Students will enter the building at the following locations by grade level:

    • Front D-Wing Doors -Freshmen
    • Front Main Doors- Sophomores
    • Fieldhouse Lot B-Wing Doors-Juniors
    • Fieldhouse Lobby-Seniors  
    • Students will need to bring both their masks and face shields with them to school every day.

The following areas of the building could not be appropriately furnished with desk shields therefore students must wear both a mask and face shield within them:

Media Center

Band Room

Chorus Room

Ceramics Room

Art & Design Room

Here are a few COVID-related additions to our parent-student handbook at this time to be aware of:

  • Face coverings will be required to be worn by students at all times when in the school building.
  • If a student is late arriving to school, that student will be sent home for remote learning on that date.
  • Here are a few COVID-related additions to our parent-student handbook at this time to be aware of:
  • Face coverings will be required to be worn by students at all times when in the school building.
  • If a student is late arriving to school, that student will be sent home for remote learning on that date. 

Here are some example circumstances in which a student refuses to adhere to the COVID guidelines:

  • Failing to wear their face covering at all times
  • Failing to follow social distancing directives by staff
  • Endangering the welfare of others
  • The student will receive one documented warning and is subject to being placed on remote learning for up to one marking period on any subsequent occurrences.
  • No visitor - including parents/guardians - will be permitted to enter the school building without an appointment. Appointments will be provided only for the most extenuating of circumstances and should be scheduled a minimum of 24 hours in advance. Nearly all communications will be conducted via phone, email, and video conference.
  • We discourage parents/guardians from dropping items off for their children. However, in the event it is absolutely necessary, a table will be set up at the front of the building. Parents must leave the dropped-off materials on the table, and a staff member will retrieve them and deliver them to the student.
  • If a parent refuses to pick up their child if they are displaying COVID symptoms, an ambulance may be called to take the student to the hospital.
  • If for some circumstance (Governor mandate, COVID are up, insufficient staffing, etc.) the entire district or specific grade levels need to go on total remote learning for a day, two days, or an extended period of time, the following steps will be taken.

--- An announcement will be sent out by the Superintendent via School Messenger as soon as possible stating the following:

The school district or specific grade levels will be on complete remote learning for that date.

Students should log on and conduct the remote learning procedures.

With this possibility, it’s imperative that all students bring their Chromebook and charger home with them every day to ensure remote learning capability.
