Distance Learning Details -
Synchronous Schedule

  • Teachers have the option of offering their classes live via Zoom on Mondays. Not all classes will meet synchronously, but if they do, they can meet synchronously only on Mondays. 
  • MS: Check Unified Classroom or the daily grade-level trackerUS: Check Unified Classroom for your child's live classes
  • Any synchronous classes will be offered according to the on-campus Monday schedule (see all schedules) Students should be prepared to be live any time from 8:20 – 3:20, the normal school day, though they will most likely not be in class all of those periods.
  • Each teacher will decide which class(es) they can offer live and announce that to students no later than the last day that class is "in session" the week before. 
  • All teachers will make decisions about live streaming their classes each week, so they may offer a class live one week and not the next. Students will get information about whether their classes will be live the week prior.
  • Teachers may decide to meet with a few students only on a given Monday or with only one section of a class. This information will be shared with students the week before, as noted above.
  • On Mondays, tutorial will take place from 3:20 - 4:00, following the on-campus schedule to ensure all students can participate, even if they have a live class during the last period of the day. 
Assignments/Class Work
  • If a whole class meets synchronously on a Monday, that will be the assignment for the day.
  • Teachers may assign 20-25 minutes of homework as preparation for Monday’s live meeting, as needed.
  • If there is any reason a student cannot attend that live session (e.g., technical difficulties or conflict with sibling class), s/he should contact the teacher directly.
  • Students who are not able to meet synchronously will either have a separate, equal assignment, or will be asked to view the recording of the class.
  • For Monday classes that will NOT be livestreamed , the usual rules apply (video and assignments will be posted by 9am, student work is due by 9pm in Unified Classroom).

Distance Learning Details - Asynchronous Schedule

  • Teachers will post assignments and orienting videos in Unified Classroom (UC) by 9:00 am each day that a class is “in session” (please see rotation below).
