Digital Learning Days – Information and Expectations

Dear SJES Families,

We appreciate your patience as we implement Digital Learning Days. Students will be expected to meet with their class and complete work Monday-Friday while our school buildings are closed. We want to share the schedule of each day with you.

8:00 AM – 9:15 AM – Students will be expected to be online with their class at this time for direct instruction from their teacher. Each teacher will send out information about how to connect.

9:15 AM – 1:30 PM – Teachers will assign work for students to complete during this block of time. The work should take between 1 hour and 45 minutes to 3 hours to complete. Teachers will be available in their digital offices to meet with students as they have questions throughout this time. Your child’s teacher will send out a link for their digital office.

1:30 PM – 2:30 PM – Students will be expected to get back online with their class to wrap up the school day. This will be a time for final instruction, reflection, and guidance for the next day.

Your child’s teacher will reach out soon with more information about how to connect digitally.

If you picked a device today, please test it over the weekend and let us know if you have any problems. Our technology staff will be available at our school at 706-543-8798 on Monday from 8-12 PM.

If you indicated on the survey that your child needed a device and you were not able to pick it up today, we will be at the school for pick up on Monday, March 16 from 4:00 – 6:00 PM.

Again, thanks for your patience as we move forward with our Digital Learning Days.
