Elementary School Distance Learning
Students in ECE and Elementary School are currently in a distance learning format. The learning structure is modeled around best practices ensuring that students receive a quality education while online. We aim to balance the needs of social interaction, direct teacher instruction, and language acquisition with total screen time. Educational theory and parent feedback have also contributed to the elementary instructional schedule. The daily schedule is below:
- Online instruction from 9:00am-11:30am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
- Chapel and special classes are scheduled for Wednesday mornings
- Individual and small group work occurs in the afternoons as determined by the teacher
Elementary (Kindergarten to Grade 4)
Online instruction from 8:30am-11:45am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
Chapel and special classes are scheduled for Wednesdays
Individual and small group work occurs from 12:45pm-2:30pm; schedules are announced weekly by the teacher
Technology and Learning Management System
Students in PreK through Grade 3 use SeeSaw as the primary learning management system. Students in Grade 4 utilize Google Classroom as the primary learning management system. Assignments, quizzes, and homework submission are generally channeled through these systems. Grading is completed by the teacher and posted in both the learning management system and the online gradebook.
Zoom is also the primary tool for synchronous learning activities and other live collaborative experiences. Students receive secure links and log into their meetings at the appropriate time. Please refer to the Parent-Student Expectations for Distance Learning for other information related to distance learning.
