More than ever, it is important to maintain a regular daily schedule with your child. We recommend an early bedtime and breakfast at 7:45-8:00 so your child is ready to begin their school day at 8:30. Weekly schedules and daily assignments are ready to go in the virtual classrooms along with welcome messages.

When you first access the classroom, you will be on the stream page. There you will see a number of messages including notes from the teachers and posted assignments. There will be a classwork tab on the top next to the stream that lists the assignments with corresponding dates by subject. It is imperative that your child is present for class each day, completes assignments, and fully engages in the learning. The teachers will be closely monitoring attendance, providing feedback, and grading assignments that will be entered into Pupil Path.

We appreciate your patience as we begin this virtual learning journey together. We know the children will be excited to engage with their teachers and classmates and work within a predictable structure and routine.
