IN PREPARATION FOR SCHOOL CLOSURES DUE TO COVID-19 VIRUS PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:
Hamilton Township School District is moving to Remote Learning beginning 3/16/2020 due to the COVID-19 virus, education will continue through what is called remote learning.
All student assignments will be posted on Google Classroom. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
What is remote learning? This occurs when the learner and instructor, or source of information, are separated by time and distance and therefore cannot meet in a traditional classroom setting. Learning will be done at home through online instruction.
Why implement remote learning? Remote learning is implemented, so that education can continue without having to add on days at the end of the year AND/OR take away vacation days. This DOES count toward the 180 days that the state requires all students to be in school.
As a student, what are my responsibilities?
-log onto Google Classroom every single weekday (Monday-Friday)
-you will work NO LONGER than 40 minutes per class (no more than 4 hours a day)
-read all important announcements on Classroom
-complete any assignments on Google Classroom (clear/specific directions will be posted along with worksheets created through Google Documents)
-I will be available for questions/support through email and/or directly messaging me on Google Classroom
-reminds will be sent out each day as well (please join the app if you have not already - this is another form of communication - PARENTS CAN JOIN, too)
As a parent, what are my responsibilities?
-MOTIVATE TOWARD SUCCESS: encourage and support your child to complete their responsibilities each and every weekday
-DEVICE USAGE: allow your child to use an at home device for support for a portion of the day (laptop, desktop, tablet, etc.)
-STAY INVOLVED: talk with your child (ask how they are doing, if they need support, if they are on track or behind, etc.)
-CREATE A COMFORTABLE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT: provide necessary equipment, create a distraction free zone, etc.
