12 November Winter Weather Update November 12, 2020 By Layne Gabriel Announcements We know this year has presented challenges unlike any other, so it is especially important to maintain student engagement even if winter weather gets in the way of learning at school. Thanks to our 1 to 1 Technology Initiative, we now have the opportunity to support students with teaching and learning at home. "Live," or synchronous teaching and learning will take place in the morning, with teacher availability for questions or additional support in the early afternoon. Teachers will take attendance. For elementary students, inclement weather days will begin from home at 8:50 a.m. with a morning check in, just like a regular at home learning day in our Family 3/2 Instructional Model. On inclement weather days, secondary students will follow a shortened class schedule, with specific times depending on a block or nine-period schedule. Most secondary schools will begin an inclement weather day from home at 8:40 a.m., with Central High and South High beginning the day at 8:20 a.m. It is important that students bring their district-provided iPad home each evening and families charge them each night to be prepared for the next day's learning.
