A Message to Our Families

Dear Families, 

First, we apologize for the attendance messages about tardies. Please disregard any messages you may have received about them from Infinite Campus. We are currently using T to record two-way communication. We are working to get notifications turned off. The T now stands for two-way communication, not tardy.

Keep in mind that no one expects students to work for seven hours per day on activities provided by our schools and teachers. Please see the chart below for some suggested time frames for education at home. We also strongly recommend that you create a schedule for your kids during this time, something that gives them structure, knowing that at any time you might need to abandon the schedule for a little social/emotional focus.

Also, meaningful TWO-WAY communication is required at least once per week to confirm attendance/participation. This communication can be direct with the teacher via phone call, email, Dojo, text messages, video conference, etc. It does not have to be one-on-one. If students participate in a group activity online, like a short lesson via video conference, the teacher will mark them as having this TWO-WAY communication.

The important part is TWO-WAY, meaning students and/or parents must respond to the teacher with information connected to the lessons at least once each week to be counted as present for the whole week.
