Phase II of Remote Learning Plans

  • As per Gov. Murphy, these Remote Learning Plans will be in place until the end of the school year June 19.

    In these final weeks of school, our students will be focusing on more projects and collaborative activities that integrate learning.

    Please note that all FINAL EXAMS for High School and Middle Schools are CANCELED. 


    PLEASE READ THIS IN FULL BEFORE VISITING YOUR REMOTE LEARNING PLANS ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THIS PAGE.


    Our Remote Learning Plans (RLP) will provide meaningful instruction and related services strategies for grades Pre-K through 12. Phase II of our Remote Learning Plans began on March 30.

    Spring Break will continue as scheduled from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 19. We will not be posting assignments during Spring Break and we hope all of our families and staff take some time to rest and recharge. After that, we will have to take things week by week. These plans will resume on April 20 when Spring Break is over. 

    Please look to the main page of the district website for updates about our school closure and other developments as they occur. 

    Our initial 10-Day Learning Plans focused on review and reinforcement and got students used to doing work from home. Our Phase II Plans feature a more interactive, assignment-based model using teachers’ Class Pages, Google Classroom and learning videos. They are geared toward advancing instruction and presenting new material in keeping with our curriculum.

    We are committed to being flexible and responsive as our Remote Learning Plans continue. This is uncharted territory for all of us and it is important that our staff, students and the families supporting them continue to be kind and patient with each other. We will make adjustments and revisions as needed until each of us is completely comfortable and proficient in this new learning environment. We can do this!

    Phase II Plans are driven by each of our teachers. In general, students will go to the Class Page of their teachers’ pages and look for instructions and assignments. More details are available on the pages to the left.

    Mental Health:  

    These learning plans are parameters for school work and availability of teachers. However, the wellbeing of our staff, students and parents/guardians is our priority. School work is important, but we also recognize that this is a stressful time for everyone and we want our staff and families to have a healthy balance of work and family time. Please stay in communication with your child’s teacher. If more time is needed for assignments, let them know.

    We also have many suggested activities and tips to manage stress and stay on task. See our Social Emotional Links, Activities and Videos and also our Supporting Our Staff, Our Students and Each Other Page.

    Related Services:

    Related Services such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech will be arranged individually with the instructor and parent.

    Accessing Assignments:

    Our plans take into consideration that students have varied levels of access to technology devices and internet access. They are also inclusive of all learning abilities. As you go through the assignments on your child’s Teacher Pages, the links and documents in the plan are all set to be viewable only. Please do not request "edit'' access to them. If you need to work on the file, you can make a digital copy, then do your work on that new copied document and save it to your drive.

    As your students begin working on their assignments, please keep in mind:

    • Attendance during these remote learning days will be counted based on the completion of all assignments at the end of the remote learning period;
    • Assignments WILL count as a homework or classwork grade;
    • Students can submit assignments as they are completed to teachers via email, Google Drive or whichever submission procedure the assignment calls for. If assignments cannot be sent in remotely, they can be turned in through hard copies when we return to school;
    • There is often NOT a need to print assignments. If so, or if a printer is not available, please evaluate assignments to determine if there is a way to complete it digitally (by opening a Google Doc to complete the assignment, or utilize pen and paper).

    Stay Informed:

    Please be sure to check our COVID-19 Page, our district and school websites and your email for updates and announcements.
