  • eLearning Days

    In the event of inclement weather and the decision has been made to close school and implement an e-learning day, teachers will engage students for five hours a day.

    Teachers will provide an asynchronous lesson by 9am via Canvas. Asynchronous lessons will:

    • Focus only on essential outcomes and skills.
    • Demand no more than 45 minutes of student activity, including homework, for each asynchronous lesson for each e-learning day.
    • Provide opportunities for students to process new information, request feedback and get help upon return from e-learning.
    • Students can complete the work at any time throughout the day.

    Every effort will be made to ensure students take home their Chromebooks prior to the declaration of an e-learning day.

    • Teachers will create paper assignments equivalent to online assignments to the extent possible for those who experience technology access issues.
    • Depending on the length of the e-learning event, paper assignments may not be made available until students return to school.
    • Time will be provided to do work that could not be accessed during e-learning upon return to school.

     

    Student attendance and participation

    Students will need to complete the attendance survey each day, which will be sent to students via email.

     

    Expectations

    • Teachers will help ensure appropriate learning opportunities for students with special needs.
    • All 504 and IEP meetings scheduled on e-learning day will be rescheduled.
    • Faculty will be available between 9am and 3pm to provide timely, but not necessarily immediate, responses to student questions via email.
    • Zoom will not be used for the asynchronous lessons. Should a school closure extend beyond a few days, additional guidance, schedules and expectations will be shared. 

  • Emergency School Closing

    Closures, e-learning days and delays will be communicated to D204 families through email, phone and text message. To ensure you receive all pertinent information this winter, we suggest doing the following:

    1. Contact information is gathered from Infinite Campus. If your contact information has changed recently or if you are unsure whether we have contact information on file, you are encouraged to call your campus main office.

    2. If you would like text message notifications about school delays, closures and e-learning days, text the word START to 91201 to enroll. After you receive a reply, text YES to confirm that you would like to receive text messages.

    3. Follow D204 on Facebook and Twitter. School delays and closures will be posted to these social media channels.

    If you do not receive a phone message, email or text or find emergency closing information listed on the website, posted to the District's social media pages or in the media, then assume that school is in session.
