There seems to be questions and confusion about how a students day will look with the online school.
1. Your child or children are NOT required to be online all day from 8-3:30. The teacher will assign a block of assignments at the beginning of the week and will also give a due date for those assignments, which could be the end of the week or even the following week. Please check the due dates. The students can then work on the assignments at their own pace. They do NOT need to be online all day long, or if you have multiple children, they will NOT all have to be online at the same time.
2. Teachers office hours are when the teacher will be online to answer questions or set up video meeting with students in case someone is having a problem with an assignment. Teachers will answer questions anytime if you were to email them, it's just during their office hours they will be answered faster. This does NOT mean the students need to be online at the same time as their teacher's office hours. Teachers may also send out invites for video meeting with students, but the dates and time will be decided between teachers and students. Your child or children are NOT required to be online at specific times during the week. They can work at their own pace or at times that work best for them.
3. Students please check your email daily, if not multiple times a day as things may change and that is the fastest way to know what is going on.
