Dear SIJ Families,
I hope you had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. Following are the remote learning expectations that were emailed to all families on November 18th:
Each morning your child(ren), dressed in school uniform, will log into Google Classroom and search for their homeroom. This should be done by 8:10 and they should ready themselves for morning prayer which will begin at 8:15. We will then follow the normal 8 period day with a slight change in periods 7 and 8. In order to end the day one hour earlier, 7th period will end at 1:39, and 8th period will run from 1:41-2:15. The instructional day will end at 2:15. The lunch/recess period will remain the same for all students. During this time, the students may log off, take a break and eat their lunch and to return to their remote learning as their teacher directs them. Since the children will have been working with their iPads for 5 plus hours each day, the classwork/homework will not be extended beyond the school day. Children are encouraged to take a walk or go outside and play, maybe read a book, spend time with siblings, and simply relax to gear up for the next day of remote learning."
"It is critical that your student log in with their SIJ iPad only. If a personal device is used, the student will not be able to access Google Meet. They will be blocked. If a student (or a parent if you are helping your child) receives ask for code, the student is logged in as the wrong person."
As of today, we still have only one week of remote learning scheduled. Hopefully this one week will keep everyone safe to ensure our return to in-person learning the week of December 7th.
