Planning for Virtual or At-Home Learning

Planning for Virtual or At-Home Learning:  
We certainly hope we do not have to break from face to face instruction and resort to virtual at-home learning, however it is a possibility. It is important to prepare for this possibility of virtual learning if the district closes or if your child becomes exposed to COVID-19 and needs to stay home. At some point in the school year, the district with guidance from the Andrew County Health Department might have to send home a group of students or the entire school for an extended time. If this is the case the district will provide Virtual or At-Home Learning:  
Things to consider as you get ready for virtual or at-home learning.
        Stay up to date with announcements via the school website, the PTO Facebook page, etc. 
        Create a schedule with your child and make a commitment to stick with it. Structure and routine can greatly help your child from falling behind with assignments. 
        Try to find a space where you live that’s free of distractions, noise, and clutter for learning and doing homework. 
        Identify opportunities for your child to connect with peers and be social—either virtually or in person, while staying social distant. 
        Your child’s teacher will communicate with you the following:
            o    Times of regular and consistent opportunities during each day for staff and student check in. 
            o    What communication application the teacher will use to communicate about classroom instruction. 
            o    Times of regular and consistent (daily) live video instruction. 
            o    What to do if your family has technology barriers to learning from home and how the district can help with this. 
        If your child has a specialized plan such as IEP, 504, Speech / Language Therapy, or Remedial Reading Plan the case worker will reach out to you to let you know how we will meet the needs of your child.
