eLearning in Anderson Five
An eLearning Day is very similar to a normal school day, and allows critical instructional time to continue from home when regularly scheduled school days are not possible. Anderson Five is a 1:1 school district, meaning ALL students in grades Kindergarten (K5)-12 have a Chromebook device and are to complete eLessons during eLearning. Preschool students in our K3 and K4 programs also participate in eLearning via eLearning packets: a paper packet containing activities and lessons to be completed at home during eLearning. eLearning packets were sent home at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. If the packet has been misplaced or if a replacement packet is needed for any reason, eLearning packets may be retrieved from your child's school. QR codes are also available on our eLearning website for parents to scan, download, and access the materials.
Students grades K5-12 will find their assignments loaded electronically into Google Classroom. Google Classroom is our learning management system that all teachers use within their classroom to provide lessons, resources, and support from the teacher. Each student will complete the material for each of their classes on their schedule and submit their work for the assignment through Google Classroom.
Teachers will be available throughout the day via virtual office hours to answer student and their parent/guardian questions. Common Digital Office Hours are:
- Elementary: 9:00am-10:30am and 1:30pm-3:00pm
- Secondary: 9:00am-12:00pm
Teachers can communicate with students/parents via Google Classroom, Email, Remind, SeeSaw, or Class DoJo to answer questions or provide help during office hours. Remind is the only way to communicate without Internet access.
We strongly encourage you to visit our district-wide eLearning site for resources, tips, tools, videos, visuals, solutions, how-tos. The site contains pertinent information for students, parents, and teachers of ALL Elementary-High grade levels and scenarios.

While eLearning will never replace the face to face interaction our students have in the classroom with their teachers, it is the best option we have during this unprecedented time. Anderson School District Five is fortunate to have this ability, and is proud to actually serve as a mentor to other districts around the state hoping to implement eLearning in their districts. We continue to learn from this initiative. While no one could have ever predicted we would be in this current situation of executing district-wide contingency plans per the SC Governor's orders relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that this is a difficult situation for all of our students, parents, and teachers. We are proud as to how our teachers and students have responded and continue to rise to the occasion. Anderson Five aims for high quality instruction at all times. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time as we continue to provide your child with a quality education and maintain our commitment to excellence.
