Weather and ELearning
Decisions about school closing, if deemed necessary, will be made at the appropriate time to ensure student and staff safety.
If schools are closed students will have eLearning Day lessons that will extend learning during inclement weather. An eLearning Day simply means that students in grades k-12 can use their Chromebooks for “electronic learning” or “eLearning” while school is out. Students who complete their lessons during a school cancellation will be counted present for the day(s) they are out. This will allow District Five to count a school cancellation day as a school day and not have to make that day up later in the school year.
eLearning Day Preparation
District Five sends home chrome books when eLearning lessons may be needed to be prepared for a school closing. This does NOT mean that school is canceled, but will allow Chromebooks to be at home “just in case” school is canceled. Directions for lesson completion and lesson turn-in will be provided by teachers.
ELearning Technology Support
How do I reach eLearning Technical Support?
You can reach the support team by calling:
What kinds of problems will ITS eLearning Support be able to assist me with?
We will do our best to provide support on any issues related to the use of District Five technology to complete eLearning assignments. We will be limited in our ability to provide support on home wireless networks due to the wide range of potential problems that could arise during a weather event.
When will this support be available?
Support personnel will be available to take your call between the hours of 8am and 3:45pm on eLearning days. Due to the expected call volume- if you receive a busy signal, or are unable to reach someone, please be sure to try back at the number listed above.
