If schools are closed students have eLearning Day lessons that will extend learning during inclement weather. An eLearning Day simply means that students in grades 3-12 can use their Chromebooks for “electronic learning” or “eLearning”while school is out. Students in grades below third will have more traditional lessons provided by their teachers. 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 sent home three days of eLearning lessons on Thursday, September 13 to be prepared for a school closing. This does NOT mean that school is cancelled but will allow lessons to be at home “just in case” school is cancelled. Directions for lesson completion and lesson turn-in will be provided by teachers.
Attached is an eLearning FAQ for parents.
