SCHOOL CLOSURE- DISTANCE LEARNING SPECIFICS

 

Parents and Students,

Below is some specific information regarding what a typical day will look like if we have a closure due to Weather. .  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Burright at the school-  660-686-2851 or email at jburright@fxbulldogs.net

 

ALL SCHOOL CLOSURES WILL BE SENT TO PARENTS UTILIZING THE SCHOOL’S TEXTCASTER SYSTEM.   THE SCHOOL WILL ALSO IDENTIFY IF WE WILL BE USING AN AMI- DISTANCE DAY OR NOT:  

 

CLASS ZOOM TIME-  8:15-  At 8:15 daily we would expect our Teachers and Students to link up Via Zoom in order to check in and to get lessons, instruction and details for the day.  While the Google Meet Session will start at the same time each day, the duration of the meeting will be different each day.  Teachers will provide their direct instruction and lessons for the day during that session.  Once the direct instruction is done, students will be able to sign off and work on their homework for the day.  IF students have questions they may message, email or google meet with the teacher for the duration of the morning in order to get questions answered. 

 

If we have a long-term closure of a week or more, specials teachers will set up a time to check in with each class and provide some direction and feedback for your students.  The times for this will be given to the students with a message both from their specials teacher, and from their classroom teacher.

 

Parents are encouraged to help reach out to teachers with any questions or concerns they may have and to engage as much as they can with their student’s learning! 

 

  1. It is the expectation that all students log into Google Meet meetings with teachers each day at the appropriate time.  REMINDER-  THIS IS GRADE APPROPRIATE-  THEREFORE, it is possible that younger grades (PK-2nd grade) may not Google Meet each AMI Day.  Teachers of these grades will send packets of work to be completed on AMI days and will, at a minimum, remind text information to parents.  Grades 3,4,5,6 are expected to Google Meet.

  2. Specific information from your student’s teacher will be sent home to better give you an idea of what to expect for each specific grade level.  

  3. Teachers will send you Google Meet links to join their classes. 

  4. Attendance will be taken daily

  5. Assignments will be given and work will be expected to be turned in either through Email, Google Classroom, Photo Email, Remind, etc.

  6. REMINDER-  At any time, we could call for a closure for the next day, so you need to take ANY BOOKS you need home nightly.  FOR EXAMPLE-  The majority of MATH assignments are done out of the book, so you need to take Math books home nightly for certain.  

  7. IF we foresee a closure coming we will send home chromebook devices and chargers with students.  

  8. IF the closure is unforeseen, the majority of parents have indicated that they have devices at home that a student could use to access the internet.  IF we have a 1 day closure we would ask that you utilize your home device if possible. .  

  9. If you are having technical trouble- please contact your child’s teacher or email Mr. Burright at jburright@fxbulldogs.net

  10. Students without Wi-Fi or who have IEP’s will be receiving specific information regarding their services.
