As we continue to prepare for the Digital Learning Days (DLD) for our students, it is imperative that we all prepare to adhere to common expectations. While the school district may be closed for an undefined time, our students will continue to receive quality instruction by completing assignments that teachers will provide virtually. Teachers will post assignments using VERGE for students who have access to the Internet and digital resources. Students who do not have internet access will receive hard copies of their assignments at your request.
Parents of Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students will receive hard copies of their virtual learning assignments upon return to school. Parents of seniors, your local school will work closely with you as they monitor progress toward graduation requirements during District Learning Days.
Parents are highly encouraged to ensure students have a scheduled time each day to complete their learning assignments. In addition to completing their assignments, students are encouraged to read for at least 20 minutes each day. As a parent, you are also encouraged to reach out to your child’s teacher(s) via email for virtual conferences as they will be available to respond.
Students can access VERGE by logging into the Launchpad by clicking this link.
Our goal is to provide rigorous and meaningful instruction during the Digital Learning Days. We thank you in advance for partnering with us as we continue to prioritize student learning during this time.
